How Did Jimmy Carter’s Grandson Help Leak the Secret Romney Fundraiser Vids?

A leaked video of Mitt Romney telling a room full of wealthy donors that roughly 47% of Americans will vote for Barack Obama “no matter what” because they are “dependent upon government” has swept the airwaves since being published by David Corn on  the liberal site Mother Jones Monday.

The statement that has been most pounced upon is: “My job is not to worry about those people…I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.”

But how does James Carter IV, the grandson of the former president, factor into the equation?…

…Though Mitt Romney stands by the gist of his remarks (but admits they were not stated elegantly), Carter says he knew he had stumbled upon a gold mine.

“Any time that you can find a clip that strengthens the narrative already established, that’s what becomes a big deal,” Carter explained.

He reportedly added: “I‘ve been trying to get paid for this but it hasn’t worked out yet. This might help.”

Romney Should Seize his ‘47%’ Moment

…His “47%” “gaffe”, however, gives his campaign a chance to break through the media and get the public’s full attention on an existential American question. He should seize it.

Yesterday, the full Democrat-media industrial complex gave themselves heart palpitations over a leaked secret recording of remarks Romney made to prospective donors. A stenographer at Bloomberg hilariously declared the election “over.” By my count, this is about the 4th time this week someone in the chattering classes declared his candidacy dead. The media is missing a larger point, however. While some of Romney’s comments were inartful and somewhat misleading, the foundation of what he said is true. It is also in-line with the thinking of most Americans…

Update: Mother Jones headline: “On Israel, Romney Trashes Two-State Solution.”

…some people might prefer “secret” Romney to the Romney we’re used to seeing. He’s more direct and clear, less stammering and reticent. And he’s long had a problem with seeming inauthentic. Maybe it’s time to roll out The Secret Romney.
