    Now isn't that something:

    "Mother Jones, the left-wing magazine that released a controversial video of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's remarks to a fundraiser in May, now admits that it has no full tape of what Romney said, and that its video is missing "one to two minutes" at the most important moment."

    "
    According to the source, the recording device inadvertently turned off. The source noticed this quickly and turned it back one [sic]. The source estimates that one to two minutes, maybe less, of recording was missed.
    Corn was forced to update his original post, which promised the "full" video, to reflect the fact that a key portion of the video is, in fact, missing.
    There is no way to know, without the missing footage, exactly what Romney said. On Monday evening, Romney called for a complete video of his remarks to be released.
    That now turns out to be impossible, either because Romney's remarks were never recorded in full (as Mother Jones now claims), or because some of his remarks--perhaps mitigating some of the controversial effect of his statements--were selectively edited out of the tape by Mother Jones or its chain of sources (including former President Jimmy Carter's grandson)."

    Conservatives should be thanking Mother Jones for this gift.

    And the 18 1/2 minute gap in the Nixon tapes was Mrs. Wood's fault.

    Yes, the really damning rant is now totally invalid because only 47 of the 48-49 minutes was caught on tape.

    What could possibly mitigate saying that 47% of the country are victims who don't take responsibility?
