WASHINGTON (AP) — The grandson of former President Jimmy Carter says he persuaded the source who secretly taped Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney at a fundraiser to release the full video to the media.

James Carter IV says he was intrigued after seeing what he describes as a short, mysterious clip of Romney talking about Chinese factory conditions.

A Failed Post Presidency Grandchild.

He may just give the election to Romney, and it will be poetic justice.

If the Israelis think Obama is going to win for sure, Mossad will just release their file on bozo to Breitbart. Contrary to popular belief, Iran is not Israel’s number 1 national security threat. A second term Obama presidency is.

Reuters in their story just called him “James Carter” without mentioning who he is.

Perhaps he will be identified as a “nonpartisan presidential grandkid”.

The pathetic thing is, if we could somehow get a “secret recording” of Zero talking trash, we wouldn’t be able to get the “news” media to touch it. Bias? Hmmmm........

Correct! Israel is smart enough to understand that the US will have a hard enough time itself surviving four more years of the kenyan's islamofascist policies, and that one of his main goals will be to destroy Israel.

I keep on telling people this video will HELP Romney..Gallop had a poll showing that the majority of Americans want Govt out of their lives, they dont want to pay for other people’s free stuff..so this video will help Romney, I want more and more people to see it because it will help him with the Independent voters.

Netanyahu knows his options. He could crush Obama if he needed to. The information is out there for anyone who has the resources to find it.

Yes, Netanyahu could firebomb the Obama campaign with the info Israel surely has. That he won’t tells us something about what Obama has threatened Israel with if they do release The Kenyan’s secret records.

He is James (Chip) Carter III's son. James III was born in 1950 and James IV was born in 1977. Amy was born long after the three boys who were on there own by the time Jimmy was elected.

Can he arrange to find more videos of Romney that have this kind of shock value to them, namely, the shock of Romney speaking the truth and actually showing some spine.

Thanks, James Carter IV!!!

I am grateful you have supplied the republicans and conservatives with a rallying cry, because 99.9% AGREE with Romney. (Producers as opposed to the locusts.)

Couldn’t have done it without you!

Romney needs to make lemonade out of a lemon. I believe more than 50 percent of U.S. voters do not identify or sympathize with the 47 percent. And I believe many of the 47 percent would like to be working and achieving. Romney needs to say: “Hell yes! Half the country is tired of carrying the other half.”

His original comment wasn’t ‘lemon’ whatsoever. The media’s narrative is always to demonize Romney, regardless what he says. America is desperate for TRUTH and when Romney backs away from his comments, America feels like ‘why vote for Romney if he’s an apologist just like 0bama?’

There was one that that reporter in L.A. had of him meeting with some unsavory middle eastern types. He refused to release it.

You see the problem with your own statement in regards to what Romney said?
Many of the 47% would like to be working.
Of course you’re 100% correct. But he lumped them all together. Welfare queens with retired people with the truly disabled with the scam artists,the unemployed with ne’er do well.
It was a horrible statement.

While I agree with the threat to Israel is from Iran,(and Obama) no country will destroy Israel, God will not permit it. Israel belongs to God alone. It’s really too bad the Israelis don’t believe that because then they would be stronger.

‘release the full video to the media.’-——

so that’s it? That’s all of it?

He didn’t use the word moochers, freeloaders.....just cited stats and his plan to get those who are not in the 47 for Obama or the 47 for him...

that’s it?

He should get anything he has on BO out there because BO has got to go. BO can’t threaten Israel without the wrath of the voters so Bibi should go ahead and release it in October. Please.

The people who will be offended are those who want to be offended (victimized). Most retired people pay income tax. Social Security is taxed. Most retired people won't considered themselves in the 47 percent. Those unemployed by forces beyond their control are regularly seeking employment and many of them are earning something in the underground economy. Unemployment compensation is taxed as income. They don't see themselves in the 47 percent because they don't plan on staying jobless and poor. The profoundly disabled are occupied with just surviving. The chronically unemployed, the welfare chiselers, the disability frauds likely won't vote.

If Romney were and Democrat we wouldn't even be debating his remarks.

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!
