Appearing on Fox News, yesterday morning, Mitt Romney campaign spokesperson Andrea Saul attacked a pro-Obama Super PAC ad which linked Romney to the cancer death of a wife of a steelworker, who lost his job and spousal health insurance because of Bain Capital's downsizing.
Saul went off message and said the fired steel worker would have had access to health care if he had lived in Massachusetts, under Romney’s plan, state health care coverage covers the uninsured (video below), reports BusinessInsider.com.
That comment set off a firestorm in conservative circles, with Saul being attacked by Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter.
Appearing on 'Hannity,' last night, Coulter slammed Saul for her “completely idiotic response” to the ad and called on the Romney campaign to immediately fire her (video below).
Coulter said: “Anyone who donates to Mitt Romney, and I mean the big donors, ought to say if Andrea Saul isn’t fired and off the campaign tomorrow, they are not giving another dime, because it is not worth fighting for this man if this is the kind of spokesman he has."
Additionally, Rush Limbaugh said on his radio show this morning: "That's a potential gold mine for the Obamaites, because they can say, 'Well, yeah, and Romneycare's the foundation for our plan, Obamacare,' which they are already out there saying."
