2. I'm willing to share...



No wait, I guess, "No way, get your own you freeloading moocher!" is more appropriate for this video.

3. Okay, my immediate impression is the recorder was placed on some sort of service table. nt

4. it was mentioned last night that a member of the help did it

it certainly looks that way to me too. Some "clerk" or server that makes 10$ an hour set up a camera to see what it caught

7. At 4:03 the camera is adjusted and the apparent ice bucket next to it is shifted.

About 10 seconds later one of the female staff members retrieves a bottle from an ice bucket on the other side of the table. Purely speculative, but we may have that young lady to thank for this video.

9. it's the bartender behind the camera

around 16:00 you hear the young lady order a drink for someone and it's handed to her from behind the camera

10. Upon watching, further, I absolutely agree.

You can also hear some light sniffling from behind the camera at one point. Although I do wonder if the rest of the staff knew something about this. At one point the young lady stands briefly in front of the camera then quickly steps aside as if she was aware she would be obstructing the view.

Ha! This is what Romney and his ilk get for thinking of the "help" as being invisible.

6. Supposedly, it was set up by the caterer

to see if his help was stealing drinks.

11. when asked about "cleaning house" at SEC and other regulatory agencies

he comments that he'd love to fire more people (if elected) but the unions get in the way. Said he'd "go deeper" then the unions allow.

Already commenting that he'd fire a ton more people...

12. paraphrasing....My question is, why don't you stick up for your self? Be proud of your wealth.....

....You saved companies that were at risk for failing...

Romney says he does talk about this at his stump speeches in from of Republican audiences and the media is there and they write about it.....they say that Romney defends success in America and dreamers and so forth.

Romney says he's not sure what cuts through the American consciousness.....says he has very little influence on that....this is what they write about and that will happen...........we'll have 3 debates....we'll have a chance to talk about that at the debates.....there will be ads that attack me and I will fire back in a way that describes in the best way that he can .....then he mumbles.

What he finds most disappointing in this president is his attack of one America against another America....based on going against those who are successful.



Class warfare baby brought to you by the letter "R".

13. TPM: Foreshadowing Lybia?

http://talkingpointsmemo.com/archives/2012/09/foreshadowing_libya.php?ref=fpblg

In the newly released full Mojo/Romney tapes, about 4 minutes in on tape one, Romney starts to talk about what he refers to as “the Jimmy Carter election”, i.e., 1980. He then goes on to talk about how the hostage crisis and the failed rescue mission Desert One were pervasive issues through the 1980 election. Then at the end he says that “if something of that nature presents itself I will work to find a way to take advantage of the opportunity.”

He has a couple stopped and started sentences and at some points it’s not entirely clear to me what his meaning is. But on this last point he seems to be saying that if a major international crisis erupted he’d do what he could to turn it to political advantage.

14. oh well, nothing too damning, just maybe embarassing

he does gloat about having advisers on his staff that affected international elections.

15. No, no crime in gloating, just a huge turn off if one happens to fall into the less than category.nt
