Thank you to Jimmy Carter's grandson James Carter 4th

I don't think I've seen it mentioned in some time that it was Jimmy Carter's grandson who introduced the "47%" tape to the world. And with that, undid the retouched Mitt Romney and exposed his true feelings about much of the country.

Plus, its worth mentioning that the GOP ops wanted to portray Obama as "another Carter" from the time he got into office. Instead, Obama was his own man, and Jimmy Carter's grandson came in with the cavalry to save the day and get the word out.

Thank you James Carter 4th. Thank you so much. (and the clever person who turned on the camera).

6. what lit a fire under him

was when Romney said "Even Jimmy Carter would have made that call" in reference to President Obama ordering the attack on Bin Laden.
That infuriated me as well.

11. that was the difference

we grew up together. Oh we lived many miles apart . but we grew up aware , in the 70s. we knew then what we know now.
so many people never paid attention and then one decided when they had to. but we already knew. we paid attention, all along. America is with us. I like that

25. Thank you to James Carter IV, and also to the daring house employee who taped the event!

Let us not forget the anonymous videographer of the Rmoney fundraiser, great job, great video. He/She risked their job and means of support, and changed the election!

I think he deserves a ton of credit for exposing the real Mitt Rmoney.

31. Your work helped form the turning point in Democratic Party influence on voters.

A thousand thanks to you, Mr. Carter, and your waitstaff connection. Glad you knew to give the tapes to David Corn and Mother Jones!
