Toasting the person most responsible for taking Romney and his money down:
The unknown man or woman who taped Romney with his fundraisers.
Whoever you are we are very grateful.
If you ever reveal yourself you will never be able to buy yourself another drink or meal in public for the rest of your life.
Mitt you could have been a contender but you opened your mouth at the wrong time and
let everyone see what you are really all about, so close, so sad.
Good summary by ABC news.
Before a May 17 fundraising dinner at a Florida mansion, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney told the reporters who'd been tailing him on the campaign trail that he was sorry they couldn't follow him inside.
"Too bad you can't come to the fundraisers," Romney told reporters.
While the journalists were left outside, however, someone inside the lavishly catered dinner decided to do a little freelance reporting, creating the latest viral recording to jar a national political campaign.
A camera secretly recorded Romney from a serving table at the edge of the room as he addressed an audience of 40 or 50 at the $50,000-a-plate event, delivering remarks that would make headlines four months later. Romney dismissed Obama supporters as entitled "victims."
"There are 47 percent who are with him," said Romney, "who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That that's an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what."
LOTS of love to James Carter IV! wrongney unplugged!
Voting's not the only best revenge.
Jamming some pompous, elitist, narrow-minded, greedy, selfish, LYING, entitled, cheating, hypocritical, overprivileged asshole's words back down his throat so he doesn't win the election is ANOTHER best revenge.
James Carter IV is a national hero!!!! His work may have been the clincher!
put it altogether and took it to David Corn at Mother Jones.
romney himself had such a big part in bringing mitt romney down.
back to the public that this is a guy who tells one thing to his backers and another to everyone else.
He doesn't really understand the job of being President and he is really rather heartless about the whole thing as well.
and follow "her?" on twitter
Mainly because someone found her tweet that said she needed a lawyer because the guy who had the fundraiser was threatening lawsuits
the person will come forward for some proper kudos. Then again they may fear the wrath of Mitty.
After hearing the account of Ron Paul being threatened that Mitt would destroy him if he didn't play along, the person may fear waking up to a dressage horse's head in their bed
I can see that, and a message that their mortgage has been taken over by Bain.
Like Ann told us months ago about her husband, "wait until he is unzipped."
Boy howdy, was he ever!!
"The Recorder", James Carter, and David Corn.
to know that they are part of the 47% that he's against.
Here's to the common American. A power they never dreamed of.
for publishing it in a semi mainstream magazine.
so you see, democracy takes a village of "paying attention" activists...
thanks to all of you who brought us that famous CYNICAL manifesto of the GREED that underlies the entire GOP value system.
(and punishment for anyone that is not greedy, but indeed poor because they choose to be hard working americans who barely make ends meet).
Glad you're here! It's down to mere HOURS! YIKES!!! Let's put this one AWAY, as well as the assholes who NEED to be put AWAY. We need you! Let's show 'em their cash ain't nothin' but trash!
Now get to work.
I"m buying huge amounts of popcorn for tomorrow Night's GOP Last Elephant Dying Cries show..
they have tried everything and we have shown them that HONESTY wins out over lying and greed all day long! Nice to be here, Cali... "their cash really isn't nothing but trash" (it's what my friend calls 'dirty money').
a waiter who recorded the fundraiser. Saw that on the DU.
A "lowly waiter" - one of that mitt-maligned 47% I'm sure - may have brought down His Lordship. "The help" strikes back - and draws blood (hopefully)! A real David versus Goliath story.
If it was one of the waiters who caught this, we owe that person a debt of gratitude beyond ANYTHING that anyone can imagine! But then again, EVERY server should get at least 25%. Lemme tellya, that's HARD work! And MAN do you ever take abuse. Particularly when you have to wait on smug SOBs like these.
It's no fun to get stiffed, especially when you've worked hard and you really need the money!
if someone in Romney's camp set that thing up (on their own initiative or from a direct order from Romney) for the sake of "posterity." But then, if this is the case, they could have shot it from a better angle that would have left the honored guests out. Looks to be a professional job because the audio is quite clear. Also, how would an anti-Mitt person(s) gotten past all the security to position the equipment?
It would be the height of irony and karma if Mitt knew that sucker was running all the time.
for whomever did it - it stuck for months, millions of people saw it.
Yes, It was me....the one who works for the wealthy, cleans their toilers, servers their food, takes their insults, sees their ignorance, and works for minimum wage with no medical coverage.
Like my brothers and sisters who cut their grass, haul their trash, mind their kids, wash their clothes, fix their sewers......
teachers who lost their benefits because of their greed.....
police and fireman who are out of jobs, prison employees who used to work for the states but now work for corporations, service men looking for a job after returning from Iraq and Afghanistan...
elderly surviving on Social Security desperately afraid it will be turned over to the survivors of Lehman Brothers....
elderly surviving on Medicare like my in-laws who are worried that it will be voucherized for their grandkids,
women who are are seeing their rights to their own bodies taken from them....
gays and immigrants, the regular scapegoats for these elitists,
Yes it was me. The nameless 99% who you treat with disdain, arrogance, looking down on your nose on us.
But we will get even and will get revenge. Your day is coming. We will raise your taxes, you sniveling turds!
We actually owe Romney a great big sloppy kiss for exposing the inner mind of the rich that the Republicans have been presenting as our benefactors. The great and beloved "Job Creators" who we can trust to do what's fair and what's right for the typical citizen because they reward us for our loyalty and for a job well done.
Mitt Romney would drown in a rainstorm. His nose is too high in the sky! I would never call him President if he won. I would hate my country and those who put him in office and I would know in my heart that America will never be right again.
We cannot forget this is how we are viewed by this millionaire capitalist who wants to take all he can.
finally got their PAYBACK on the GOP for all the years those assholes have made Jimmy Carter sound like a weakling and for all the years they associated negativity to Carter.
Jimmy Carter is a good good man who got caught up in a poor circumstance (Iran).
... a man with *zero* scruples, afraid to live by the courage of his convictions, willing to sell himself out and everybody around him in order to achieve power.
I don't believe that he wouldn't have tripped up somewhere along the line w/o this tape.
There was just too much against him to make his winning seem probable.
The RNC clusterfaux
The parties he attended
The Olympic trip
The Israel trip
The Stench moniker
Paul Ryan's budget
It would have been a harder fight, but, Mitt is simply too unlikeable and far too unskilled to be POTUS.
He has money, but no Class.
He looks like Mitt Romney, but he also resembles Mitt Romney. It could be Mitt Romney. A coworker told I was wrong, and that it was Mitt Romney.
Wow, there are just so many people that could be.
