American Bridge already hitting Romney hard in new video






on Edit: It looks like this came out at least 5 hours ago. I'm just finding it. This story has moved so fast.

Democratic tracker American Bridge is up with a video connecting Mitt Romney's leaked comments at a fundraiser blaming government dependence on granting President Obama 47 percent of the vote, to past comments on his wealth and policies. It includes an old clip at the end in which Romney jokes: "When I was a boy, I used to think that becoming rich and becoming famous would make me happy -- boy, was I right!"

I don't think the world, not to mention America, could stand to look at that smug mug for 4 years -- we've already looked at it for far too long

9. Same here. Seems to be newly-found because I Googled it

and there were only 7,000 hits. Almost all those pages are referencing this American Bridge video.

14. Except... Welcome to DU, viguy007!

Glad you're here, too! And we need you! There are STILL some who may be swayed by the commercial carpet-bombing on TV and cable in the last few weeks.




Now get to work.

10. What's really shocking about these statements is that no one is shocked he said them.

People already either knew or suspected he thought this. But most people, especially if "running for office for Pete's sake," would never say this out loud. It is amazing that he is stupid enough in this age of iphones to think he can have a confidential conversation in such a gathering.

17. I'd never seen that last clip

What a disgusting, vile creature he is. Is he even humanoid. I know he's a sociopath but usually they try to hide it a little!
