All of a twenty million dollar ad by airing and only five swing states boss the controversy surrounding this Obama super pac cancer at a growing nationwide.
The president speaking later this -- will he meet calls to denounce it.
Welcome everyone I'm Stuart Varney in for Neil Cavuto and this is -- world it all started with this.
She passed away in -- two days.
I do not think Mitt Romney realizes what he's done anymore.
And I and furthermore do not think Mitt Romney is concerned.
The Romney campaign today calling this bad -- a pro Obama -- dispensable.
And accusing the president and his allies of perpetuating lies.
But it's -- the Obama campaign is now trying to distance itself from back -- take a listen.
I don't know the facts of when -- -- ex wife got sick or when she died I'd certainly don't know the specifics.
This man's case we have about as much to do with the priorities adds the super pac ads as Michael as we do with Michael Phelps legal metal plastic I can't speak to the -- -- is dead direct involvement to just last -- the president's deputy campaign manager Stephanie cut off.
Held a conference -- with the man featured in that -- detailing his case to reports.
A -- follow them also appearing on the campaign website for the Obama team.
To senior Romney advisor Bay Buchanan they welcomed the program.
The -- -- and they have not pulled this -- the White House will not repudiated.
What do you make of this.
Well it's it's a clear statement about the president himself he refuses to take responsibility he refuses to take any action.
To remove something that he knows well is up -- allies against his opponent.
And -- -- suggest a character issue here in my personal opinion.
That a man will take no responsibility you can't trust what would his campaign says you can't trust that they put on the air then in the press asked them about it as you pointed out.
They lie about it so this is a campaign of deceit.
The great man of hope and change has after three years of a failed presidency a -- to one of total deceit in an effort to deceive the voters about his opponent because he has nothing to run all one.
Can give no reason to the voters for -- to vote for him.
They I wanna go back to Stephanie content deputy campaign manager.
She has said that she doesn't know the facts of -- and this man's wife died.
-- and let me play you a sound bite from a conference school which featured the man -- soft -- Right.
It seemed like there are people would know concern about what they're failing still -- Now turn to call back -- just different.
Hey thank you they -- definitely appreciate you hit -- sharing your area.
There is an inexplicable there's a link it's right -- despite what Stephanie -- that.
This is astounding to me you know they act goes up and they say well we had nothing to do with it it's a pack arm's length.
Then they -- but they know fully well that that the ad is being funded.
By fundraisers -- are being done by Obama's cabinet his own secretaries.
And and so they're out there raising the money.
Then they should we knew nothing about it when we're totally moved from a only to find out they -- intricately involved in that they knew all about it.
They know well that this this ad is full of lies and certainly if they didn't know one week ago they -- today.
And they still haven't pulled it I have to ask yet.
What what do you think is cool and all over there what kind of campaign can -- 607080.
The managed -- United States and grace that it most -- in the world and all actually can do is it to launch day of the one lie after another they ask.
That's very I have to ask you this I voted Democrat today on the ad saying that this is just a conversation within the beltway in other -- This -- will not stick in fact they will win with it -- response.
Well clearly they wouldn't keep running in unless they think that that's that's the answer you know -- -- this is that this is a campaign strategy.
When you don't have anything what to run -- want if indeed the voters in -- disgusting that candidates discuss the issues that are on the minds of voter.
Which is that they're scared about their future their economy is.
Is terrible if that's the issue Obama loses so what can they do they have to destroy their opponent -- -- to destroy Mitt Romney.
Make it so people wouldn't consider voting for -- that is true that is how far how low the president United States.
Barack Obama has -- that's all this campaign's going about this is just the beginning of it but I think what's key is that Mitt Romney.
Keep focusing trying to get the American people that there is hope.
That he does understand the problem that he can put America back to work.
And then you know if they just get -- -- Bay Buchanan with the Romney campaign right thank you very much indeed thank you you are welcome.
To the presence.
