Honesty on Fieger - Presidential Election 2012


Jeff Fieger is a famous lawyer in Michigan. He is pretty much a high profile ambulance chaser that takes cases with the goal of generating maximum publicity. He also ran (unsuccessfully) as the Democratic nominee for the governor of Michigan.

Fieger recently aired the following ad in Michigan. Michigan is a key battleground state for the election and Feiger is attempting to intimidate Whites into voting for Obama. His primary argument is that White people who criticize Obama are "racist".



Interesting, he uses as his prime example the people who question Obama's birth location. According to Fieger, these people are obviously racist. And his evidence of such racism is his claim that Mitt Romney's father (William Romney) was foreign born (born in Mexico) and no one cared back then because William Romney was White. But people now care because Obama is an African-American.

Of course, people DID care about William Romney's birth place and this was a huge controversy with the Democrats at the time. So much so, that William Romney dropped out of the race.

So a simple search on the Internet proves Jeff Fieger's central example of racism was false. The only possible explanations are:

1. Jeff Fieger is a liar
OR
2. Jeff Fieger's legal firm is woefully incompetent in researching basic matters
Such is rather ironic in that Fieger titled his commercial "Honesty on Racism". Life is always amusing.
