I want to click... but it's American Thinker... so conflicted.

So we have to throw out the whole recording because it's out of context? Who "built that" idea?

American Thinker seems to equate publishing excerpts of a video with "doctoring". They should have checked with James O'Keefe.

I want all 1,440 minutes of the twelve hours before and after the "gaffe", and I want it unedited and uncut. If you can provide this to me, I will watch the video footage and confirm or deny whether the video was a liberal smear campaign. I can have this done within the hour.

The tape is a forgery.

This looks 'shopped. I know from the gaps in the tape and from hearing quite a few potatoes in my time.

Because when an organization wants to promote Republican integrity they should *always* bring up gaps in recordings.

Yikes.

It would be helpful if the video was taken by a Latino.

But the whole tape is supposedly incomplete, therefore nothing can be in context and everything must be ignored.

Meanwhile, over here, let's talk more about the Michele Obama Whitey tape that doesn't exist but is absolutely true and cannot be ignored.

Update: According to the source, the recording device was inadvertently turned off between these two segments. The source noticed quickly and began to re-record, resulting in an estimated a one-to-two minute loss of tape. Link

Not to mention the old "you didn't build that". Funny how they didn't have a problem with THAT being out of context, huh?

And during those two minutes Romney said "You know who I love? The poors. Every day Ann and I open up our mansion to poor people and give them all the food they want as they ride my Olympics horse and leave heinous, government-cheese dooks in my marble-and-gold bathrooms. Then I open my wallet and buy interview suits for everyone before hiring them myself! After that, we all have a hearty laugh over a glass of port while reading my tax returns."

Didn't Romney say that he wished he was Mexican, since if he was really Mexican, it would be much easier for him to get elected?

We also need a filming of the filming to make sure there wasn't any filters or digital editing software attached to the camera.

Listen, communist. We just don't know whether or not that part begins with "Some people think..." and ends with "...But obviously I don't believe any of that, it would be horrible and monstrous [furious audience applause, cries of "we respect the President for his accomplishments but feel disappointed enough to move to another candidate']", and now thanks to Mother Soros, WE NEVER WILL.
 
2012-09-19 12:18:42 PM
The backpedaling begins. When oh when will the right understand that they're stuck with Romney, which means they're also stuck with all the bone-headed, stupid shiat he says?

You can blame gaps in the tape all you like. He still said what he said, and he can't claim he didn't say it, because it's on farking tape.

For those who don't want to give American Shiatter a click, here's today's dose of derp:

Oops! Turns out Romney 47% tape was 'doctored'
Thomas Lifson

We can take it from the mainstream media themselves that when embarrassing tapes turn out to be missing any portion, they are "doctored" and therefore discredited. By this standard, the tape released of Mitt Romney discussing the 47% -- considered a fatal gaffe by the progs -- must be discarded.

It turns out that despite claims by Mother Jones that the tapes were presented in full, there is an obvious gap in the recordings. Benny Johnson writes in The Blaze: about the videos posted on the MJ site:

[Romney]"We do all these polls - I find it amazing. We poll all these people to see where you stand in the polls but 45 percent of the people vote for the Republicans and 48 or 49-,"

This is where the first part of the video cuts out.

Part two picks up seemingly on a completely different subject: China.

"...about twice as much as China, not 10 times as much like is reported. And we have responsibility for the whole world, they're only focused on one little area of the world, the south china sea..."

The topics nor the pick up points in the sentence are the same in the two videos. Romney himself claimed this video was edited and called for "the person who has the video would put out the full material."

Mother Jones writes that the cries of selectively editing were "not true" and that Romney's comments "were shown in full."

Back in 1992, when embarrassing tapes emerged of conversations between then-presidential candidate Bill Clinton Gennifer Flowers, Anthony Pellicano, touted as an expert on tapes, declared them "doctored" because portions were missing. This enabled the mainstream media to dismiss the tapes from the national conversation.

More recently, the progressives worked themselves into a frenzy hitting Breitbart over publishing an incomplete recording of Shirley Sherrod. So they are on record decrying the practices of presenting less than full, unedited tapes.

Sauce for the goose is also sauce for the gander.



I don't blame you for not clicking. It smells funny in there and they all have mittens pinned to their sleeves.

Nah, I think the author of the Thinker article simply blacked out for a bit there. He should consider not drinking when watching Mitt speak ... I know I know, that's hard to do. I mean, how else do you numb yourself enough to listen to him, not knowing if he'll espouse rock on turtle love or reject the human clause- that every corporation should be given a home, food and education.
 
2012-09-19 12:46:00 PM

Just fark off already.

vpb: Did we miss even more foot in mouth goodness?


Seriously. When the minute or so came out about the 47%, he dared them to release it all. Turns out there's a bunch of regrettable shiat in those 40 minutes or so. So they want more to be released? Go ahead, but be careful what you wish for.

The problem with the Shirley Sherrod video, is that the missing portions completely changed the context of the small clip that was shown.

Romney never even accused the tapes of being inaccurate.

How the hell can an adult be so childish?
