Skip to comments.Critical audio gap in Romney tape released by Mother Jones (Corn responds, 1-2 mins missing)
Posted on 09/18/2012 7:34:52 PM PDT by Kolath
David Corn of Mother Jones released the complete audio and video of the secretly recorded Mitt Romney speech at a private fundraiser.
Yet the complete audio and video is not complete. There is a gap in the recording immediately after Romneys now famous discussion of the 47% of voters who dont pay taxes. The cut in the audio and video comes while Romney is in mid-sentence, so we actually do not have the full audio of what Romney said on the subject.

YOu mean they doctored it??
David Corn of The Nation Magazine rep?
I hope not. The TRUTH needs to be told and Romney told it. The TRUTH can get ugly at times and this is one of those times. The left just can’t handle the truth. IMHO.
I hope the video was not doctored..it was perfect and I agreed 100 percent with everything that Romney said..now he has to use what he said and tell it to everyone on the campaign trail. The left knows what Romney said is true, just watch the DNC Convention, it was a freebie love fest..if Romney can keep on conveying the same message that was in that tape he will get more votes
Speculation is that one of the catering staff might have made the tape, but it's only that, speculation.
Unlikely that there will be any prosecution or even the attempt, but it's the law, for all the good a law does if no one enforces it.
(1) The tape recorder did turn off, as Corn said.
(2) The tape shows something helpful to Mitt, and so it was edited out.
(3) The tape shows something harmful to Mitt, and they are saving it for another day to create more damage.
I would like to think #1 is true, but knowing what slime David Corn is, I suspect it is #3.
i pointed this out in one of the main threads about it last night at 9PM: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2932556/posts?page=21#21
you could tell in the video the way they cut it off Romney must’ve said something substantial the left did not want leaked out...
He may well have qualified his 47% remark. Not sure why the campaign doesn’t tape its own events to protect against just this sort of thing.
I don’t think it was (3). Romney wanted the whole tape released.
“(3) The tape shows something harmful to Mitt, and they are saving it for another day to create more damage.”
I read that Romney made a statement at the same dinner in regards to ME foreign policy. Wonder if this is the missing minutes.
SO... it’s exactly the same, but different ?
Hmmm. He probably said, "Hillary's foreign policy is gonna get someone killed."
I watched Nightline. (please don't ask me why since they are so pro-Obama it is sickening. I just some times want to see what is being reported by the msm.)
Amazingly, they actually played the “bitter, clinger, gun and Bible hugger” clip that Barry made during the last campaign. I am still amazed they would have aired that.
I'm still scratchin’ my head.
I am watching the whole tape now and all I can say so far is that if this is how Mitt Romney talks when he does not think he is being recorded, I am impressed. What an honest man. This is great stuff!
Call Pam Bondi Attorney General of Florida Republican
what state do you think the illegal taping took place?
What I meant is that I just finished watching all of the video released on Mother Jones. If I were Romney I would take some of those clips and make a few commercials called “Mitt Romney Live and Uncensored”. There are a number of incredibly excellent lines in the two videos. Since the tapes were illegally made who is going to sue him for using the great parts?
Well that part is around the 24 minute mark of video 1.
the leftists are morons as usual. I talked to one of my liberal friends today and asked her about this tape. she scratched her head, not able to answer honestly if she understood what the controversy was all about. She couldn’t articulate what Romney said that wasn’t the conservative view to begin with. She already knew all that as conservative, and my views, to begin with. What was controversial or new about it except the fact that the media kept harping on it as “secret” tapes??? It was funny to hear it from her. I just kept my mouth shut and let her turn herself into a pretzel trying to justify the hullabaloo. LOL! But then I asked her if it wasn’t so interesting how the media was turning this tedious non issue into such a hullabaloo? In an aha moment I could clearly see the wheels turning! Something she always denied before: media is indeed obama propaganda arm and not real news!! so she just looked away and, oops, it was time to go back to work. That’s what I call Moving Forward!
This will not turn well for the left-wingers and their biggest gun against the right, their media conglomerate.
Leftwingers are morons.
“From what I read it had to do with the Palestinians not wanting peace and that a two state solution would not ever work.”
If so, that’s the straight-on truth and I’d love to see them them try and make something of it. I would say any American who is paying the slightest bit of attention would agree with Romney.
***He probably said, “Hillary’s foreign policy is gonna get someone killed.”***
Along with obama’s foreign policy. We were all thinking it at any rate. Extremely sad that it came to pass.
It was interesting Romney’s campaign wanted the full video released.
As the person being recorded, does he have the right to use footage of himself as he sees fit?
