Media Selectively Edits Romney's Remarks

This is big. You know that Mother Jones video from Romney's meeting with donors back in May? Well, they promised the full video but they are now forced to admit that the recording shown is missing a couple minutes in a critical locations: right after the 47% remark. Romney has called for the full video to be released. The media is in trouble over this, I'll tell you! Not that they'll report either Romney's call for the full video to be released or report that they aren't referring to a full video missing a critical part of his speech to donors.

If I had to guess, Romney said in those two conveniently missing (for the liberal media) minutes that he does have a better vision for people now forced to be on welfare. He wants America to become the land of opportunity once more and he knows how to do it! Yesterday, he said that the "best course for America is to create wealth, not redistribute wealth" and "redistribution does not get people back to work."

UPDATE: There is a new report released verifying that Obama's gutting of the work requirement for welfare recipients has doubled the number of able-bodied adults enrolled, and that's just from 2008-2010. I'm sure worse statistics will revolt us once 2011 and 2012 data is available.

    Please show where President Obama guts the work requirement for Temporary Assistance for
    Needy Families. I included a link to help.

  2. Sure. See http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/07/12/Obama-Administration-Guts-Welfare-Reform-Work-Requirements and http://blog.heritage.org/2012/07/12/obama-guts-welfare-reform/ and http://hotair.com/archives/2012/07/13/obama-administration-guts-work-requirements-for-clinton-era-welfare-reform/

  3. Doing your own homework, would be better, because reading the document there is not one word about gutting the work requirement. Instead people like to make up "facts" that are not true. Most people would call untrue information a lie, including the Mormons.

    1. There is more than one document out there. Which one do you choose to believe? I believe this one from the Congressional Research Office. I've lived in South Chicago. I know about the lack of a work requirement and the rampant fraud and abuse that goes on in that city. Say what you like. Believe what you like. But I know what I know.
