William Jacobson notices that the two YouTube videos representing Romney’s “complete speech” during the fundraiser have an audio break between them. He emailed David Corn of Mother Jones, who responded:
According to the source, the recording device inadvertently turned off. The source noticed this quickly and turned it back one. The source estimates that one to two minutes, maybe less, of recording was missed.
Deceptively and selectively edited!!!!!1!!11!!!
These comments are tongue in cheek, of course. Anyone who followed ACORN knows what I’m talking about.
Maybe Romney answer was “inelegant” only because Mother Jones didn’t disclose that part of tape was missing.
Maybe, but I don’t think so. I think he was just being careless in front of people he thought of as friendlies. Mistake made, lesson learned, move on dot org. Recognize that the polls are still close and don’t be gloomy.
And keep hitting the theme. It’s a good theme for us. We aren’t the party of freeloaders.
