How Jimmy Carter’s Grandson Helped Leak the Secret Romney Fund-raiser Video
http://nymag.com/daily/intel/2012/09/james-carter-iv-helped-spread-secret-romney-video.html ^

Posted on 09/18/2012 8:20:45 AM PDT by kcvl

The damning video of Mitt Romney telling a room of wealthy donors how he really feels about the freeloading 47 percent of Americans "who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it," among other candid things, has been floating around online in bits and pieces for three months, but didn't hit the big time until it was published by David Corn at Mother Jones today. Credited as a "research assistant" on the story is James Carter IV, the grandson of former President Jimmy Carter, who has been toiling online as an opposition researcher and is "currently looking for work," according to his Twitter bio. "I've been searching for clips on Republicans for a long time, almost every day," said Carter this evening. "I just do it for fun." But by connecting Corn with the mysterious uploader of the clip, Carter has uncovered his biggest story yet, one that could potentially affect the outcome of the election. (And get him a job.)

Carter told Daily Intel that he first noticed a portion of the video in which Romney discusses using Chinese labor while working at Bain Capital. That clip, uploaded by a YouTube user named "RomneyExposed" in late May, and then again in late August by an account called "Rachel Maddow" that has since been deleted, eventually made it to Buzzfeed and Daily Kos.*

If paying taxes is as “patriotic” as the Democrats claim it is, why do they want 47% exempted from it?

Heard a black caller on the radio today saying that she doesn’t plan to vote for Barack this time (and claims to have voted for McCain in 08) but that she doesn’t have qualifying income to pay federal taxes. She says she’s retired.

Why is it okay for her walk the line around “income” taxes ut it is wrong for the bulk of Romney’s annual money to come from investments rather than “income”?

Somebody said “macaca” again apparently.

Still waiting for ABC News to finally air the video they have (it is ABC, right) of Barack Obama at the dinner honoring an Islamist terrorist.

They didn’t air it in 2008, there is still time in 2012.

What are y’all hiding it for?

Funny how someone cuts out the official PC-BS and it’s “damning”. This just shows that the Liberals really actually believe the BS that they keep telling each other. The rest of us know better.

“Any time that you can find a clip that strengthens the narrative already established, that’s what becomes a big deal,” Carter told the magazine. “I’ve been trying to get paid for this but it hasn’t worked out yet. This might help.”

Carter describes himself on Twitter as an “Oppo[sition] researcher; political junkie; news sponge; policy wonk. Currently looking for work… Seriously, give me a project.”

I'm sure they will try to spring more buried "surprises" next month as the election nears.

In 2000, when the Pravda Media leaked reports of GW Bush's decades old DWI charge, it clearly cost him a few points in the polls (had it come out earlier, it wouldn't have had a lasting effect). It came out on the eve of the election. He lost the national popular vote by 0.51% (half a percent) to Al Gore Junior. So much for the Goron's "noble victory".

Is anything secret now adays especially when running for President? Romney should either not think things are secret or say them in public. Free Republic was having a field day with Kate Middleton because she was on vacation with her husband and went topless....they said that she should have known better than do this as a public figure. Romney should learn that lesson as well. Lucky for us, he didn’t say anything stupid.

I’m trying to work up some outrage at Romney’s remarks from back in May. I had heard the figure was 49% Government dependents and now Romney says it’s only 47%. That actually pepped me up a bit because that 2% difference could actually win the election and send Obama back to Chi-town.

A couple of things to note:

1) Since they’ve been sitting on this since May, they intended it as an ambush in October.
2) They released it early because of the events of last week that were so devastating to 0bama.
3) They, looking through their liberal/socialist worldview lens, actually think this is damning.
4) And, as you say, if this is “all they got”, they are indeed in trouble.

Since when is the truth "damning?"

The perpetual left-wing spin by the MSM is destroying any semblance of genuine political discourse in the U.S. Yes, some 47% of the American population is pure socialist. They'll never vote for anyone who might threaten their "right" to get free stuff from taxes paid by the 53%.

The real problem is that Obamugabe is trying to "grow" that 47% into a decisive majority that can win any future election. He must be stopped.

Great, this latest champion of moochers — who doesn’t want a real job, btw, only a mooch’s job (else he’d look for a real job) — is scandalized that Mitt Romney would say moochers aren’t entitled anything for free, except air. Just like all the rest of us.

Forty-seven percent seem to be awfully strident about it when they’re bellowing that the rest of us OWE them a living. No humility or gratitude about it whatsoever. Just menace. What do we say to that and when do we say it?

If you use the 47% number then the 22% not paying taxes because they are SS recipients is closer to half.

As a member of the 22% not paying taxes because I live off of SS and my savings, I can candidly say that Mitt Romney can go fuck himself.

Quote 1. they intended it as an ambush in Oct.

I have high hopes that the Romney campaign has a mutually assured destruction plan, MAD, ready to go when, not if, the Obama forces unleash their usual cutesy, smugish, ambush of the Republican opponent.

This particular video of Romney speaking the actual facts driving this election, is not damning since to refute it is an admission of the brink of disaster this country is teetering on.

Nothing "damning" about it. People who think its "damning" are the 47% he's talking about. Members of the hive.

The do-ers of the world know exactly what he's talking about.

I agree with the comments. After hearing his remarks, I was absolutely relieved. I actually felt better about having to hold my nose and vote for him. No sarcasm. If he really believes this, that Pali’s don’t want peace, and 47 percent are on the government tit-suckers, then his ass and head are more in alignment than previously anticipated.

The grandson of an ex-president is unemployed, and still supports the president who has maintained the highest level of unemployment since the Great Depression.

He thinks that helping Obama will help him get a job? Not from anyone who "built that".

As long as workers pay into their SS and healthcare, they are entitled to the programs they pay into....Mitt Romney does not feel those people are free loading....the free loaders are the people who don't pay into those programs but somehow manage to get free healthcare, food stamps, housing, and education. Actually it is the fault of our congress for making it so easy to 'freeload'...for votes.
