(Independent Journal Review)   In what should come as a MASSIVE shock, MSNBC knowingly alters a tape of Romney in order to make a humble gesture look like a selfish plea for attention   (ijreview.com) divider line 41

OK. so we're expected to believe that an event attended by hundreds of R/R supporters, which hit the news cycle on TUESDAY of this week and has been, for the last four days, making the Republican candidate look like the boorish fool that he is, is in fact fake.

And nobody from the Romney campaign, nor the attending crowd, came forward on Tuesday to challenge it.
Or Wednesday.
And on Thursday, some random fark calls in to GLENN BECK and says "no, it didn't happen that way". And the Romney campaign said NOthing.
And on Friday, they said NOthing.
And on Saturday, it shows up on a Blaze clone site. And we're supposed to smack our hand against our head and say "Of course! I can clearly hear it now! Right after Paul Ryan gave a speech, the crowd began chanting "ROMNEY...ROMNEY..." and our kind-hearted GOP candidate had to correct them.

Soooooo, you, lurker.

Yes, you. I'm talking to you.


You read this shiat-flinging fests from time to time. Much of the time, they are he said/she said about what the details are of the health care reform laws are, or who is demanding what in a dispute between a teachers' union and the state of Wisconsin. Or what, based on history and non-partisan statistical methods, is the tax structure for wages and capital gains which will cultivate the best economic environment.

Things that are complicated, hard to judge, and have opposing sides making plausible arguments.

Consider this one of those opportunities for clarity that you often wish you had when trying to judge who is honest while reading those other disputes.

Look at what TFA is claiming. Watch both of the videos. Listen. Then write it in red farking laundry marker on your arm who the farking lying assholes are, and who the people are who have characterized the events accurately.

Then, in the future, when you are trying to grasp a complicated issue, and who is lying, look at your farking arm, and remember, oh, yeah, that's who lies about blatantly obvious provable shiat like that. I better not believe farkall from them.

You retarded farking 'undecided' voter, you.

I watch quite a few MSNBC shows and NONE of them claimed that Romney was being selfish. You know how they reacted after showing that clip? Here's the actual reaction:

mrc-tv.s3.amazonaws.com 

Seriously. I believe Scarborough just said something like "oh my, sweet Jesus". They're not trying to paint Romney as a bad guy, they're just honestly dumbfounded by how bad his campaign is being run.

murrdy: they're clearly chanting Ryan, but even if they were chanting Romney, it's not the point

the whole point of the clip was that he tried to start a chant (Romney Ryan) and nobody went along with it


The crowd at the Romney/Ryan event clearly had a liberal bias...

Tamater: bartink: Tamater: tenpoundsofcheese: The Bestest: also an aside, anyone catch a glimpse of that "cartoon of the day" on the sidebar?

[www.ijreview.com image 290x227]

..yeeeeah, this site is totes legit

are you saying that 0bama didn't say that? or are you just sad that a cite quoted something he said?

what makes it not legit?

Oh, I don't know. Maybe because what he said right after that would definitely not be expressed by Ahmadinejad?

"The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. But to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see in the images of Jesus Christ that are desecrated or churches that are destroyed, or the Holocaust that is denied."

Therefore, the cartoon's point is not legit.

Wow, that chicken is out of feathers. Leave her alone for a day or so.

So I listened again (had heard it before)... it sounds like the crowd is muddled. I can hear both "Romney" and "Ryan" from among the crowd, and it's really difficult to tell.

That said, the crickets after he tries to redirect their chant are impressive.

Sounds like Ryan to me every time I listen to it. I feel like I hear like one person say Romney and everyone else say Ryan. Maybe he heard both names being shouted and tried to combine them, which is still less shiatty than trying to tack yourself on to someone else's cheer.

Still it's stupid to try and lead these chants, they're supposed to be spontaneous outpouring of support from your crowd. Trying to push them cheapens it, which is obvious as the chant trails off when he makes it suddenly forced and lame.

It's equally lame when he tries to join in the USA chant in this clip.

McManus_brothers: I saw the video on Morning Joe, and it did sound like the crowd was chanting "Ry-an!", and Romney corrected them to "Romney-Ryan!".

But apparently everyone in this thread ripping on the Blaze missed this line at the bottom of the article:

Even another media source, the New York Times, tells the same tale as those who where there, adding more credibility to those who are coming forward.

From the NYT article: After Mr. Ryan whooped up the crowd in Vandalia on Tuesday, Mr. Romney moved to the front of the stage. As the crowd began chanting "Romney! Romney!" he cut them off."Wait a second," Mr. Romney said, instructing the audience to cheer for "Romney-Ryan! Romney-Ryan!" They did.

"There we go," he said, pleased.

I don't really care to white-knight for Mitt Romney, but this needed to be pointed out.


I never heard the Romney-Ryan chant take off. It looked to me like after a couple of attempts, Romney simply says, "There we go," almost like he didn't want to beat a dead horse. However, the audio is sketchy. Maybe the chant did take off closer to Romney.

He clearly emphasized the 'Romney' when speaking to the crowd, as if to make sure they understood what to add in...otherwise he'd have emphasized the 'Ryan.'

Anyway, it's obvious to everyone what actually took place.

There's no question at the beginning of the CNN clip the crowd is chanting 'Ryan', switching to a lukewarm 'Romney-Ryan' after Mitt gets all diaper-rashy. HIS CORRECTION MAKES NO SENSE OTHERWISE. My opinion is shifting from "remorseless liars" to "seriously crazy".

Then, the audience allegedly begins to chant 'Ryan! Ryan!'... however, it appears as if Mitt tells them to chant, 'Romney/Ryan!, Romney/Ryan!' What a selfish thing to do, right? That's what MSNBC wants you to think.

Um, no. I watched the MSNBC video. Clearly the crowd is chanting "Ryan" because he just finished speaking, and Romeny, you know, the guy who is running for president, redirects them to chant "Romney/Ryan" because he is, you know, THE FU(KER RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT after all.
