Where’s the Bain certificate? Obama’s Truther Team still pimping debunked lies

On a Thursday conference call, deputy Obama campaign manager Stephanie Cutter accused Romney of committing a “felony” by “misrepresenting his position” at Bain. Like all honest actors, Cutter was inspired by a smear manufactured by Mother Jones and Talking Points Memo. And Obama’s “Truth” Team is happy to continue parroting the lies.

Like 9/11 truthers, the Truth Team clings desperately to debunked theories and willfully disregards facts, demanding proof for that which has already been proven. Repeatedly.

Good morning, @StefCutter! Here are your 3 Pinocchios for your "Mitt's a felon" charge: http://t.co/6LhNXJS6

Hey @truthteam2012 – the same newspaper that is breaking this story (Boston Globe) ran a story in '01 about Romney leaving in '99 #StopLying

Unlike truthers, Obama’s minions know they’re lying. They just don’t care.

Even after numerous debunkings, the Obama campaign was still paying Twitter to promote this tweet this morning.

FACT: "Mitt Romney stayed at Bain 3 years longer than he stated." http://t.co/MO11xH9i

Here’s a screen grab of the promoted tweet:

FACT: you’re full of it.

The Democratic Party is completely on board, of course, propping up the lie with a link to Rachel Maddow’s blog.

"Sure I filed formal documents that said I was in charge, but don't worry, the buck stops somewhere else." http://t.co/Ib9CG0ji

And the Truther Team is still shamelessly piling on, facts and evidence be damned!

Obama campaign press secretary Ben LaBolt says the felon smear is a-OK.

Ben LaBolt, on MSNBC, defends Stephanie Cutter's statement in which she suggested Romney may have committed a felony.

Team Obama press sec @benlabolt says that Romney felony question is "absolutely fair" http://t.co/zkjgX9iJ

#TruthTeam2012 RT @RBPundit: Bro, you know all your claims have been debunked, right? Do you even read the news anymore? @BenLaBolt

— Stacey-SisterToldjah (@sistertoldjah) July 13, 2012

So conservatives wondered just what sort of felonies are OK to ask about.

Okay, @benlabolt , if Romney "felony" questions are okay, how about your boss? Who sold him the coke?

— Phineas Fahrquar (@irishspy) July 13, 2012

dear @BenLaBolt: please let us know if the amount of cocaine the president used was enough for a felony conviction.

You know what should make someone a felon? Arming Mexican drug cartels.

In a true sign of desperation, Barack Obama’s official account tweeted this:

Why Mitt Romney’s end date at his buyout firm matters: http://t.co/vYPMoZFT

— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) July 13, 2012

And the president had the utter nerve to criticize negative campaigning today.

Pres Obama begins campaign speech in Virginia Beach noting "negativity" and "cynicism" in campaign ads.

— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) July 13, 2012

No, really. He said that.

But hey, Obama’s not really going negative. He’s just spreading the truth. His Truth Team told us so.
