    or are you telling us what romney says at a public event should have been kept private
    wouldn't want the public to know what he actually believes. the employee's video would not allow that deceit to be perpetrated on the American public. or as an attorney, do you believe truthfulness is overvalued?

    So 47% of this nation doesn't work and WON'T work???

    His little speech he thought was just to 'his people' was offensive because this 47% he refers to DOES work, HAS worked and CONTINUES to work. A very small portion of this nation 'won't' work.

    Which wasn't edited and had false tape added to it like O'Keefe and his pimp crap. Nor a highly truncated tiny bit of a speech like Shirley Sherrod.

    I kinda like the idea of those who decry the lack of transparency in the Obama Administration being up in arms their candidate is caught saying what the radical right loves to hear. This is why the GOP is dysfunctional.

    I have problems with that sort of activity. he was hired to be one of the catering staff.

    I think the hosts have a viable legal action against the caterer.

    Translation-you hate Romney and you don't care how this tape was obtained. If someone had done that to Obama, you'd be having a hissy fit as did the leaker who apparently was a gay guy who supported Obama

    I hit the nail on the head. If Obama's derision was directed at you, you'd think it was more egregious than Romney's. The fact is, there's not really any difference.
    I make no claims about where you stand, but as none of the derisions were directed at me, I have no dog in the fight. Tell, why is it so hard to address the differences I note?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    well then, make your legal services available to the host
    but i am guessing you cannot frame an argument to initiate the action

    I don't know what the contract said. I suspect that hosts didn't expect some guy to have a hissy fit and intrude on a dinner he wasn't really invited to
