President Carter To Grandson Re: Mitt Video: "James: This is extraordinary. Congratulations! Papa."
Former Pres. Jimmy Carter Congratulates Grandson on Unearthing Romney Video
How the Romney video leaked: For Carters, it was personal
The self-described Atlanta-based "oppo researcher" who helped broker the release of the secret video that has rocked the Romney campaign got a congratulatory email today from his famous grandfather -- former President Jimmy Carter.
James Carter IV told NBC News in an interview that, starting late last month, he tracked down the source who took the secret Romney video via Twitter -- and then in a series of messages encouraged him to release the full tape to Mother Jones magazine.
After emailing his grandfather the magazine's story about the tape -- under the subject, "Huge campaign news," and calling it "my biggest story yet" -- the former president wrote back at 7:16 am Tuesday: "James: This is extraordinary. Congratulations! Papa."
"I'm proud of my role in being able to track him down," James Carter, 35, said about the source who took the video. "I'm a partisan Democrat. My motivation is to help Democrats get elected. If there is anything I can find in any race, I try to do that."
35. Unemployed. Democrat.
Do they not realize the irony.
If James O’Keefe had done the same thing to Obama the Justice Department would be hauling him off in chains right now and Carter would be cheering them on.
“James Carter IV”?
Jimmah’s sons should have put and end to that name.
I believe the grandturd has awakened a sleeping giant as the majority realize that, yes, we the 53% are sick of paying for that 47% who sit on their Jimmy Carters all day and collect welfare.
I pray Romney wins and Turd IV gets full credit for helping those undecideds make up their minds.
This is all I need to know.
“secret video that has rocked the Romney campaign’
Should have had a barf alert
“”Three generations of imbeciles are enough”.” ~ Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
We need his picture published far and wide so that if he is seen at a Republican function he can be politely escorted out.
It’s actually rather illustrative and humorous -
the left is all in a tizzy about Romney telling the truth that some don’t pay taxes, and through their distorted lens, this should sink him.
Truth doesn’t bother us, though. And it won’t bother those who can be reached.
I wonder how many of our liberal friends who support Obama will own up to supporting Carter so long ago?
We still do not know who it was that betrayed Romney and released this video to Carter.
That person must be exposed.
Ah ha! That’s why Obama and Biden didn’t have anything scheduled this past weekend...they had to go down to Ga and wash James Carter IV’s car and wank the dog!
Jimmy IV is going to be real unhappy when he realizes that video may be what gets Romney elected.
Bet he’s been waiting 32 years for that.
Did he do this before or after he went and p*ssed on Reagan’s grave?
Too busy fighting off subsequent generations of giant swimming attack rabbits to hold down a job, no doubt.
I hate to break this to you, dummy, but you may have just assured Romney’s election. LOL.
I think Romney should produce a chart of the Carter years. One that shows gas prices, gas lines, double digit interest rates, double digit inflation, hostages,etc. Then say something like “Obama keeps talking about the Bush years. How would like to go back to the Carter years?
Ehhhhh.....it’s Carter. He sent the same message after little James had his first bowel movement.
James, you’re a liberal slug, the working Americans.
The way it’s playing out, the Carter child might just have helped cement Romney in the White House.
I think this is him:
This was a good thing.
Think about it.
Jimmah’s mother Lillian had no idea how true her words would turn out to be when she uttered this: “Sometimes when I look at my children I say to myself, ‘Lillian, you should have remained a virgin.’”
Would to God that she had; and Stanley Ann Dunham, as well!
So, Carter proves he’s STILL wrong.
They just don't realize that this thing is a complete non-issue to the average American.
I don’t think it is possible to tell how this will turn out, but the story is fascinating. Pretty sharp Carter IV. YouTube. “Rachel Maddow” “Anne Onymous.” Heh. Wonder who she is? Could be Jimmuh’s sweet revenge.
Ummm. There was also this:
The source who took the video has confirmed to NBC News that it was taken at a May 17 $50,000-a-plate fundraiser at the Boca Raton, Fla., home of private-equity mogul Marc Leder, chief executive of Sun Capital Advisors.
Leder has given $225,000 to Restore Our Future, the pro-Romney Super PAC, in addition to raising money for Romney’s presidential campaign. He has also been the subject of controversy after a report in the New York Post last year — under the headline “Nude Frolic in Tycoon’s Pool” — about a wild party at his Bridgehampton mansion in which, according to the Post’s account, “guests cavorted nude in the pool” and scantily clad Russian dancers performed on platforms.
Leder has not responded to a request for comment from NBC News.
Republicans and nude cavorting. Sea of Galilee and now this!
Young Mr. Carter is desperate to get Obama re-elected, because he figures after four more years of Obama, there will be no question who was the worst US President of all time, and Jimmy Carter will finally be off the bottom of the list!
