Mitt Video an Opportunity, Not a Scandal

I'm sure that the video was being held for a late October surprise, perhaps even the first couple days of November. The coordination behind the media was well in place. First, though, let's review two pertinent points. 1. The video was heavily edited, so context was not fully provided. 2. The video's content was such that, with proper media exploitation, the initial impact would highly negate Romney, but the same content would boomerang and help Romney, if he had enough time (in this case a week.) This leads to believe that Obama needed battlefield surgery, and took what he could.

If this is all they have for an "October Surprise", they're really, really stretching...

If we're looking for "damning" videos, I'd offer up the endless press coverage of our embassies under siege across the globe. You could follow that up with video of administration heavies insisting that these uprisings were caused by an obscure "You-Tube" video. Juxtapose that against Carney's "self evident terrorism" comments.

Or, if you prefer, we can watch a video of Obama actually saying that his "biggest mistake" of this term was failing to fix immigration--that's a good one.

Or, we could pull up ANY video in which Joe Biden says anything--those are always good for a laugh.

But this chopped-up video snippet of Romney? Oh, please...
So what about the Democrats' would-be tempest about Mitt Romney's alleged 47 percent gaffe? Is there any "there" there?

Mitt's statement was made at a private fundraiser, where he was trying to explain that his message of reducing taxes would obviously not resonate with the 47 percent of Americans who are not paying income taxes. It's purely logical; you aren't going to entice those who aren't paying taxes with promises of lower taxes.

The statement was hardly shocking or unique. For years, we've heard the axiom that once the body politic of any nation freely votes itself...
