Obama camp has history with star of new Super PAC ad

(CNN) - Representatives from the Obama campaign tried to distance themselves on Wednesday from a new ad released by the pro-Obama Super PAC Priorities USA that links actions taken by Bain Capital to the death of former steelworker Joe Soptic's wife.

Aboard Air Force One, campaign spokesperson Jen Psaki told reporters that the campaign had "no involvement with any ads that are done by Priorities USA."

    It just occurred to me that of course President Obama wants to distance himself from Priorities USA and their campaign to connect Bain Capital to the death of Joe Soptic's wife, because Bain Capital at that time Mr. Soptic was laidoff Bain Capital was being run by Jonathan Levine who is President Obama's friend and campaign bundler. If anything Priorities USA is tying Jonathan Levine to Mrs. Soptic's death!!!!!!!!!!! Wow!!!!!!!!

    Obama is getting more desperate, and less credible as each day goes by.

    The commercial doesn't even have to air now. It received an audience for free and everyone can stay distant from it.
