Is it so built into their psyche that they have no conscience about being dishonest?
1) The Obama campaign’s Super PAC, Priorities USA Action, founded by Bill Burton (pictured) and Sean Sweeney, run an ad linking Mitt Romney and Bain Capital indirectly to the death of a worker whose wife died five years after he was laid off at a steel mill Bain took over and who appeared in an Obama ad in 2011. As if that wasn’t bad enough, Romney had stopped working at Bain Capital before the worker was laid off. As we said before, the claim that Romney was involved with the company because he retained several titles is way off base.

2) Republican National Chairman Reince Priebus says on “Meet the Press” in response to what he mistakenly sees as $700 million in Medicare cuts that if anyone has blood on his hands, it’s Pres. Obama.
If you agree with us (or disagree), contact Priebus at the Republican National Committee:
3) The head of the Democratic National Committee, Debbie Wasserman Schultz says she doesn’t know which party the owners of the Super PAC, Priorities USA Action, which put out the deplorable ad linking Romney indirectly to the death of a laid off steel mill company’s wife, support.

4) A Republican refers to the Affordable Care Act as one “nobody likes.”
5) Then there are the talk show hosts like Mike Malloy, Rush Limbaugh,(who we’ve declared to be “shameful” and is no longer quoted on this blog), Randi Rhodes and Mark Levin, just to name a few, who throw out insults better than an Olympic water polo player might.
It sure appears that they have no idea how this affects many people’s perceptions of their character and it being an election campaign is not accepted as an excuse here.
Maybe one day it will reach them, perhaps when a grandchild reads their quotes and says “Why did you say that?” Grandma or Grandpa.
