Posted on 06/01/2013 7:08:49 PM PDT by servo1969
Yesterday, Stephanie Cutter, Deputy campaign manager for President Barack Obamas 2012 reelection campaign, appeared on Jake Tappers show The Lead on CNN.
During the segment Stephanie Cutter admitted she had attended meetings with then IRS Chief Douglas Shulman at the White House:
A couple of facts here that I think are important for us to stick by, number one, the only reason we know about these visits is because the president makes everything public. Number two, what were really looking at some of these visits What we are looking at the number of times that Mr. Shulman was cleared into the White House. It doesnt necessarily mean he went to a meeting. Number three, many of those meetings were for healthcare implementation. I was in them with him. So theres nothing nefarious going on.

Ping. In case you missed it.
True the GOP has no stones, but the American public could care less & that’s the main issue.
“I am not sure this is a big deal.”
So in your world, it is not a “big deal” for the head of Obama’s 2012 Campaign to meet with Obama and the head of the IRS, at the exact same time the IRS is targeting Obama’s political opponents????
You CAN’T be serious.
The problem you have is a failure to connect the dots. Or to see reality when it slaps you across the face.
Why was a campaign manager working out of the White House? I thought the campaigns were to be kept separate from the workings of the Executive.
No doubt. Sometimes I wonder if they all shared the same playpen given Timothy Geithner’s father, Peter, oversaw the ‘microfinance’ programs developed in Indonesia by Ann Dunham-Soetoro. He was director of the Asia program at the Ford Foundation, a New World Order operation. Timothy’s maternal grandfather, Charles Moore, was a vice president at Ford Motor Co. from 1952-63.
“Uncle” Frank Marshall Davis was involved with Chicago’s South Side Community Arts Center in the 40s, as was Vernon Jarrett, Valerie’s father-in-law. They worked together for the newspaper Chicago Defender and also as members of the publicity committee of the communist controlled Citizens Committee to Aid Packing-House Workers. Valerie I guess, was Michelle Obama’s boss in 1991, when Mayor Richard Daley hired Michelle to be Valerie’s assistant.
Rahm Emmanuel’s father Benjamin was a member of the Irgun - a militant Zionist group that operated in Palestine between 1931 & 1948. He is closely tied to David Axelrod, Barack’s chief strategist. Rahm’s brother Zeke worked for Obama as a special health adviser to budget director, Peter Orszag. Interestingly, according to his NIH bio, Dr. Emanuel is “widely published on the ethics of clinical research, advance care directives, end-of-life issues, euthanasia, the ethics of managed care, and the physician-patient relationship.” Cool, I suppose, if our nation was communist, but anyway...
Smith College? Say no more!
If Stephanie Cutter is present at a meeting, there most certainly is nefarious goings on taking place

. . . . Check out article, and many informative comments.
Thanks, Jet Jaguar.

This woman disgraces women. She’s nothing but a know Liar, and sold her soul to re elect a hateful failure of a Pres.
So, Stephanie “I lie just as much as Debbie Wasserman Schultz” Cutter vouches for Doug Shulman??? I got one word for ya Dougie -— toast. Does the name Jeb Magruder, and Conspiracy to Obstruct Justice ring any bells?
Wow! I feel better now, that Stephanie is vouching for a liar. A liar vouching for a liar. Democrats the real American terrorists!!!
I feel so much better now that, Stephanie Cutter, aka, the lying liar who lies on behalf of the Lying, Liar in Chief, has cleared this all up. Absolutely breathtaking what contempt this entire administration, up to and including the potus, feel for We, the People.
Whatever it is that they’re covering up that it requires a pro-liar like Stef Cutter must be really, really bad. Worse even than we thought. Hey libbies, prove me wrong.
The Easter Bunny made him do it.
Calm down and read her bio. She was working in the WHITE HOUSE for the Obama Admin. NOT a campaign job. That came later.
Yup. Sometimes I get the feeling the fix was in for 2008, and the Chicagobama Machine persuaded McCain (and the RINO / Rovian consultants) to throw the election. In return, the Lamestream Media would keep hailing him as the ‘reasonable elder statesman’. That would explain his lame campaign strategy and the RINO / Rovians’ tacit destruction of Gov. Palin.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
All recent scandals had one overriding goal at their root: to neutralize everyone and everything that could impede BHO's re-election.
Or to be a troll trying to sow confusion along conservatives.
Yes, Bush picked the guy to show that he was bipartisan. But in all the hearings, the Democrats have gone out of their way to point out that he must be a Republican sympathizer because Bush appointed him.
The worst thing for a Republican to do it try to “reach across the aisle.” It will always come back to hurt them!
“. . . Lois Lane Lerner stated she was pleading the fifth to keep from incriminating other people . . .”
I don’t think she said from “incriminating” other people. I believe she said something like “protect innocent” people. She knew she could not say “to keep from incriminating” other people. She also knew that pleading the 5th always makes a person look like they have indeed committed a crime, so she tried to shift the idea to protecting innocent people, meaning no crime was committed at all. She thought she was being clever, but she stepped right into a trap.
I believe that Lerner will appear again before Issa’s committee. Lerner will get another opportunity to answer questions.
I remember wondering what the deuce was going on. We’re in the middle of Occupy Wall Street and the tea party meetings are focusing on reading lists and walking tours. I wish the “leadership” had told us what was happening.
They were afraid to say. For fear of further harassment.
I wonder how many individuals were intimidated into silence.
Well then explain this, moron!
We used to be able to SEE where to cut the budget.
Thanks to Hussein, no more!
Check out this link. Many Freepers probably remember it.
Proudly REALLY BUSHS FAULT!!
From the archived web page image
Expect More.gov was an initiative of the George W. Bush administration. This website has been archived and is posted here as an historical resource. It has not been updated since the end of 2008 and links to many external websites and some internal pages will not work.
So much for Hussein transparency! This Expect More site graded All Federal Programs by department. All Thousands of them. Cant have troublemakers verify that at least half of decades-old programs got failing grades! AND WE STILL HAVE MOST OF THEM!!
Perhaps one of our patriotic White House Correspondents can ask Hussein the simple question...
WHY WAS THE WHITE HOUSE "EXPECT MORE" WEB SITE REMOVED BY BARAQ HUSSEIN OBAMA IN LATE 2008?
Its communism coming back through their grown children.
The New York Times reports that David Axelrod attends the highest-level national security meetings.
Dont forget Valerie Jarrett. Im STILL waiting for her name to come up in Congress. You KNOW she was involved in this.
It took 19 posts for this bitch's name to pop up. Too many post for the head commissar not to be mentioned.
Her status as a paid liar should not be understated. She makes her money by lying.
Amazing how someone else can "remember" so much while he only remembered one for an Easter Egg Roll (I wonder how them kind of rolls taste...)
“As if this were some extra perk that this administration has bestowed upon us!”
Yesh, and not just a big fat lie.
Her status as a paid liar should not be understated. She makes her money by lying.
And, fer shur...... many were not
From the article written during the 2012 campaign:
A controversial ad from Priorities USA, a Super PAC supporting President Obama, shows the story of Joe Soptic, a former worker from GST Steel.
GST Steel was a company that closed after being bought by Bain Capital, the investment firm that Mitt Romney helped build. In the ad, Soptic talks about how Mitt Romney and Bain closed GST Steel, causing him and his wife to lose his health care. The ad then states that shortly after that, it was discovered that his wife had stage four cancer, and died 22 days later.
The ad makes Romney look like Satan. Unfortunately, there are a few problems with it.
First of all, Romney left Bain in 1999 to take over the Salt Lake City Olympics. As noted by the Washington Post this week, GST filed for bankruptcy in 2001. Romney was not involved in the decision to close the plant.
Joe Soptics wife, Ranae Soptic, had health insurance through her own employer, a fact left out of the Priorities USA ad. She died in 2006, years after the plant was closed.
When asked about this ad, Stephanie Cutter, the deputy campaign manager for President Obamas reelection campaign, said on CNN I dont know the facts about when Mr. Soptics wife got sick or the facts about his health insurance.
Another Obama campaign advisor, Robert Gibbs, later echoed these statements on MSNBC Wednesday morning, saying that he did not know the specifics. Jen Psaki, Deputy White House Communications Director told reporters on Air Force One that we dont have any knowledge of the story of the family.
White House Spokesperson Jay Carney was even less helpful.
Apparently theyve all forgotten about the OFA conference call that Joe Soptic was on with Stephanie Cutter on May 4, 2012.
Stephanie Cutter knew Joe Soptic, and heard the entire story well before the Priorities USA ad debuted over the airways. Its now obvious that she lied when trying to deny it this week. Its highly likely that Robert Gibbs and other high level Obama campaign advisers knew Joe Soptic and his story very well. It is a violation of federal law for a campaign to coordinate with Super PACs. While it could be very difficult to prove that there was any direct coordination going on, at the very least it has now become obvious that the Obama campaign knew the specifics about Soptic, and that they lied about it repeatedly.
It also means that they knew that this ad and its attacks against Mitt Romney were blatant lies. Its time for the American people to buckle up.
Hope and Change has now fully morphed into Kill Romney.
Watched the whole panel segment at CNN...Kevin Madden, wussy! No wonder Romney lost.
Subpoena Cutter, A-rod and the Plouffer pronto...
Obama’s legacy will be Voter Suppression & Intimidation on a scale never seen before in US history!
Isn't Jake Tapper the one person at CNN who's NOT an idiot? Is he the reason CNN's numbers are up?
(note: the above corrections were made in order to comply with the White House Press Release indicating that signing 'in' to the White House is a 'window-dressing' procedure, carried on mostly for the 'rubes' who are no longer even allowed to tour the White House.
So now the IRS will not only be able to destroy a person financially, but physically.
She was a top Obama political hack working on implementing Obamacare at the time of the meetings.
She had Obamas ear in all this.
I don't understand how your how those last two sentences prove the first sentence. That sounds like the very definition of a campaign manager.
The fact that she was there with the IRS tells us the IRS had taken a politically active role in the re-election campaign.
Presidents using the power of the IRS to punish their enemies and help their friends is against the law. It's a criminal act. Nixon tried it - and the charge was listed in the Articlea of Impeachment.
Residents of the White House aren't expected to, or allowed to, sign 'in' to the White House.
If you can't prove she was 'in' the White House, you can't prove she was involved.
: ) (This 'argument' has already been used for Obama, who continuously states he was NOT involved)
Probably for the same reason that NBC has their own 'wing'.
Not a good argument.
We know that Obama does nothing but 'campaign'. Everything she was involved in was in support of the 'campaign' of Obama. This 'illicit if not illegal' activity was all in preparation for the election.
Obamacare WAS the campaign foundation of Obama.
Is this not true ?
Good job. We have to ‘wake up’ the country - and even some in our own party...
OK. So what were the other 150 meetings for ?
I am just telling you what the Dems will say. This dirtbag Cutter had a White House job at the time. Some you just don’t want to hear that fact. There is no smoking gun here.
gives new meaning to the words of Nikita Kruschchev....
