This morning I became aware of a lie being spread on left-wing blog sites that the Romney campaign and conservative groups had already given up on Michigan and Pennsylvania.
The Romney campaign and conservative groups like Crossroads GPS have pulled TV ads in Michigan, Romney’s home state, according to the Detroit News.
Nor are the campaign and super PACs running advertising in Pennsylvania, after unleashing a barrage there over the past five months.
This is a deliberate attempt to disguise the fact that Romney is widening the playing field in the Electoral College. Obama needs it to shrink.
Sources directly from the Romney campaign have provided me with this response:
“Silly season. Not pulling out from anywhere – we haven’t yet begun. Until now. Tomorrow we’re launching the biggest swing state ad blitz of the campaign. Massive. What people may notice is that this flight doesn’t yet include important states like PA, Wisc or MI. Just means we’re hitting battlegrounds first. “
We are going to see a lot of this nonsense coming from the Left. They know they are going to lose and they are desperate.
Oh, and this: Obama only leading in New Jersey by SEVEN?
