As the super PAC aligned with Barack Obama is coming under fire for suggesting Mitt Romney might have been responsible for a woman dying of cancer, President Obama knocked Republican super PACs in a speech today in Colorado:

"Now, I have to tell you that we have less than three months left in the election," Obama said. "Less than three months. Time's flying. and over the next three months, you will see more negative ads, more money spent than you have ever seen in your life. I mean, these super PACs, and these guys are writing $10 million checks and giving them to Mr. Romney's supporters, and -- basically, they have all the same argument. They all say the same thing. They say that the economy is bad and it is Obama's fault. now, let me tell you something. every ad is the same argument."

But while he knocked super PACs aligned with Romney, Obama was careful not to mention the ones on his side, doing his bidding.
