Rachel Maddow Talks to 'Mother Jones' Reporter David Corn About Romney's Devastating '47 Percent' Remarks: VIDEO

Corn

Mother Jones reporter David Corn spoke to Rachel Maddow last night about Romney's '47 percent' remarks and the video on which they appear - revealing, as he did in an article published last night - that the fundraiser was a $50,000/plate affair at the home of controversial private equity manager Marc Leder in Boca Raton on May 17, 2012.

They also discuss what the remarks could mean for Romney.

  1. OMG,

    Governor Romney is conveniently ignoring so-called 'Corporate Welfare', with the MASSIVE trillion dollar 'Bail-Outs' being a prime example.

    And no, it's not just the Republicans who love corporate welfare, the Dems do too!

  2. WELL, MY DEARS, LOOKS LIKE LA ROMNEY HAD HER LET THEM EAT CAKE MOMENT. WHY ANYBODY WHO ISN'T A MILLIONAIRE, OR IS VERY WELL OFF, WOULD WANT TO VOTE FOR THIS MAN IS TRULY A FOOL. BETWEEN HIM AND HIS RUNNING MATE IT'S CLEAR HE WANTS TO DO AWAY WITH EVERYTHING THE FDR STOOD FOR. IF HE DOES WIN WHETHER BY POPULAR VOTE OR SOME KIND OF CHICANERY THEN WE ARE ALL TRULY DOOMED AND THIS IS NO DRAMA QUEEN PARANOIA, JUST PLAIN FACT. SO GOD HELP US ALL AND GOD BLESS US ALL! NAMASTE DARLINGS.

  6. Actually, it would be better if candidates were as honest as Romney apparently was during that speech. It would help make campaigns a lot clearer and faster. Bill Clinton used to say the same things back in the 90's (Mother Jones didn't like him either), but in a much better and more articulate way. Romney's instincts betray him at every turn. Most people believe that he, himself, isn't particularly ideological. Whether these new quotes cut into that we see in the polling in the next week.

  7. "The Queen" did make some accurate points (rather loudly, though): FDR was the one who raised the middle class to it's current grandeur enabling it to purchase and create growth and a powerful America. Romney, in his elitist and not very thoughtful way, would destroy that power. Therefore, Romney is for a weaker, less important America and by extrapolation, making everyone else stronger than us. To think that someone who wants to rule America (not govern) would actually feel that half of Americans are weak and stupid is an insult to all Americans. He's a snake and a shadowy corporate elitist in the realm of Bush/Cheney, Nixon, Bertlesconi and Rove -- need I remind anyone that Hitler, too, was an elitist--that's what fascism was all about.

  8. I am honestly wondering if he is trying to lose. He jammed his foot in his mouth so bad here. I think the ramifications of this are just going to go on and on and on. He summarily, rudely dismissed half the country. In such an arrogant, offhanded way. How are you going to be President, if you freely admit that you don't care about half the country?!!

  9. it seems he really has no sense of self control and is driven to commit these acts of political suicide, either by defect or by design i'm not sure. Once he goes off script its all shades of GWB, is he cracking under the microscope, maybe...is he showing his true feelings, likely...his team is doing a terrible job of promoting their candidate to the undecided(but really if you are undecided, you probably think fox news is fair and balanced)

  10. Obviously easier on the eyes than McCain was...but it looks like the republicans have dragged another "Maverick" out of the woodpile.
    Seems to me the last two Mavericks didn't work out so well for them. Even though with Palin, they tried to capitalize on the "hot babe" shtick...again "Maverick" didn't cut it.
    The just can't contain their own nutjobs.

  11. What I find amusing is that if you go to gallup.com today and looking at their Presidential tracking numbers it shows President Obama with 47% support in the poll to Governor Romney's 46%. I guess that means Governor Romney wasn't so far off the mark.

  12. @Robbie R.
    This will take time to reflect in the polls. The information has yet to disseminate to the masses. Most people don't follow the news/current events that don't involve celebrities.

  13. Is Towleroad so money hungry that they have to post anti-Obama ads on this site with homosexual tendencies? Shame on you Andy Towle.

  14. This isn't the first time my favorite site has had what I feel is inappropriate ads. During the Chik-fil-a hoopla, I was having banner coupons for Chik-fil-a running at the top of Towleroad.

    I would think Andy could work with the ad company and have them keep ads that are from gay-hating groups not be on Towleroad.
