Obama Super PAC "connects the dots" between Rick Scott Medicare fraud and Mitt Romney

Priorities USA announced it would run a "Connect the Dots" ad in Florida linking the type of fraud that occurred in 1997 at Columbia/HCA under now-Gov Rick Scott and a company connected years ago to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

The Romney-Medicare fraud link is obviously disputed, and the Washington Post found fault with one line of attack about the matter when it was first raised by a Republican Super PAC backing Newt Gingrich. Whether this works in Florida or not isn't so clear. Remember: Scott was elected (albeit in a Republican wave year).

The evidence shows that notwithstanding his denial, President Obama has in fact apologized for America and done so repeatedly.

At the last debate he claimed: "Nothing Governor Romney just said is true, starting with this notion of me apologizing."

But here is the record:

1) In Cairo in June, 2009, he asserted that after 9/11, America "acted contrary to our ideals" by using torture-which slandered our own country and our defenders. (Michael Goodwin, NY Post, 9/16/12, p. 9).

2) In the same speech he also suggested American anti-Moslem bigotry, stating: "We cannot disguise hostility towards any religion behind the pretence of liberalism." This was another slander, while at the same time not mentioning the slaughter of Christians in Arab lands. (Michael Goodwin, NY Post, 9/16/12, p. 9).

3) In Trinidad and Tobago in April, 2009, he stated: "We have at times been disengaged, and at times we sought to dictate our terms." (Kimberly A. Strassel, Wall St. Journal, 10/26/12, p. A11).

4) In April, 2009, in France, he claimed "there have been times when America has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive." (Kimberly A. Strassel, Wall St. Journal, 10/26/12, p. A11).

Thus he has in fact apologized for America, which could embolden our enemises.

Furthermore, in denying "this notion" of him apologizing, he has not told the truth. How can we believe him on anything else?

Think about it.

"Never apologizing" is a dumb conservative mantra. Decent people apologize for their wrong doings. Obama is a decent person and a leader of a country that other nations should perceive as decent. Promoting hatred by foreigners endangers our national security. Attacks on the World Trade Center wasn't an act of love.

speak softly but carry a big stick. apologize where appropriate but don't allow that to be perceived as weakness.be sincere even if you don't mean it.


How anyone can even respect Romney is beyond me. Not only under his tenure was Medicare Fraud, but Bain was involved with Securities Fraud and of course dodge drafting and tax evasion.. makes Romney not even fit to be a US citizen.
