    Mother Jones, upon being called on to provide the whole tape, had to admit that they were *missing* 1-2 minutes of footage around the 47% comment by Romney.

    "Earlier on Tuesday, new media pioneer James O'Keefe pointed out the hypocrisy of the mainstream media in accepting, without question, a snippet of a video recording that aimed to portray a Republican in a bad light, while conservatives are still doubted even after providing full video or audio, as O'Keefe did with his famous ACORN tapes."

    "Mother Jones has failed a basic test and broken its promise to its readers and the public. There is now reason to doubt that it provided Romney's full remarks--not just the context, but the remarks themselves. And there is new reason to suspect manipulation. Corn promised the complete version of Romney's remarks. Instead, he provided a version that is missing a large portion of video at the critical moment.
    Mother Jones's entire story now deserves to be treated with suspicion, if not contempt."


    Thanks, I couldn't possibly have any more contempt for Mother Jones and its acolytes and readers than I already do.

    Doesn't matter.

    Romney confirmed the video and agrees with the sentiment.

    So...you mean the video I watched in which Romney clearly stated that 47% of Americans pay no tax was...what...faked?

    Despite the fact that Romney has admiited its authenticity?

    Oh no, it was correct.

    But it wasn't complete.

    Kosher -

    OK, so a couple of minutes were missing.

    Do you think there was something on those 2 minutes which would have somehow made up for Romney's gaffes?

    What could it have been....a bit where he said something like - "I'm now going to tell utter horsehit about poor people, but don't worry because it is satire"?

    There were no gaffes.

    The gaffe is entirely fictional.

    The left now calls truth and fact "gaffes".

    It would be laughable if your prez wasn't planning to protect his presidency at the expense of American lives.

    Which he has shown us all through this nightmare he is willing to do....

    We understand. Mitt, when standing in front of well-heeled Florida donors, is perfectly willing to divide America into two groups... the 47% whom he claims don't pay income tax and whom, he claims, are dependent upon government and whom, he claims, will never vote for him, and the OTHER 53%.

    Mitt, on the campaign trail, in front of crowds of normal folks, tells us that he will NEVER divide America like, he claims, Obama does.

    But if you GOP koolaid soaked faithful on here want to act as if this is perfectly acceptable behavior, that's cool... just realize that most conservative pundits and columnists in America do not share your views on this... probably because they aren't soaked.

    That is laughable - no 'almost' about it.

    I really can't imagine what you think you achieve by pretending lies aren't lies just becuase they came out of the mouth of Mr Romney?

    Do 47% of Americans REALLY pay no tax?

    I think we both know that is not true.
