Presidential Election 2012 - #4225 - Is the Secret Video of Romney at Fundraiser Really Unedited? We May Have Proof Otherwise - (Missing portion of Tape) - The Blaze (2) Contrast Rasmussen vs. PPP Polling in Virginia - Bearing Drift (3) Inside Team Romney's Plans to Win - Guy Benson-Town Hall

Tuesday afternoon, the site Mother Jones released what was described as the “full,“ ”raw and uncut” video of Mitt Romney’s comments at a private campaign fundraiser, which has drawn immense criticism from both sides. The “uncut” videos leave out a critical portion of the speech, as Romney was beginning to explain his now infamous “47 percent” remarks, and pick up in an altogether different location. Mother Jones released the two “full” videos of Romney with great fanfare. However, one simply has to watch the videos back to back to see that there is clearly no natural link between them. Watch the video, showing the final ten seconds of the first film and the first ten seconds of the last. These videos were captured directly as they are on the Mother Jones website. The video transcribed would read: [Romney]“We do all these polls — I find it amazing. We poll all these people to see where you stand in the polls but 45 percent of the people vote for the Republicans and 48 or 49–,” This is where the first part of the video cuts out. Part two picks up seemingly on a completely different subject: China.  Read more, watch video clips ........

Contrast: Rasmussen vs. PPP Polling in Virginia - Bearing Drift - Poking around the web today, it’s clear that the PPP poll numbers on Virginia showing a 51-46 advantage (3.1 percent margin of error) for the President over Mitt Romney have some people spooked. The Rasmussen numbers from Friday tell a somewhat different story. In Scott’s poll, it’s a statistical tie, with the President up 49-48 (4.5 percent margin of error). What gives? Let’s look at some of the cross tabs. PPP breaks it’s audience out this way: Republicans: 32 Democrats: 35 Independents: 33 Rasmussen’s breakdown this way: Republicans: 38 Democrats: 36 Independents: 25 On the key question of who one trusts more to deal with economic issues, the polls come to different conclusions: PPP has Obama up 49-47, Rasmussen has Romney up, 49-47. But where the real difference comes is among independents. PPP’s sample has more self-reported independents, and it shows Romney ahead by 2 — 47-45 — over the president. Rasmussen? Fewer independents, but Romney has a commanding 55-36 lead.  Read more.......

Inside Team Romney's Plans to Win - Guy Benson -Town Hall Behind the façade of a nondescript building in Beantown’s north end, Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign headquarters is buzzing with activity. Campaign placards, detailed maps of swing state media markets, and other flair adorn the walls. Recycling bins are loaded with telltale empty cans of diet soda. Caffeine might as well be oxygen here. Televisions in the rapid response bullpen are tuned to President Obama’s latest speech in Ohio. As the president thunders about “roads and bridges,” aides watch attentively, exchanging notes and coordinating the campaign’s reaction in real time. Columns of cubicles break up the expansive ground floor, their weary but relentless occupants tapping away on keyboards and juggling several electronic devices apiece. ..........“It isn’t slipping away,” Romney’s Political Director Rich Beeson says emphatically – on the cusp of mild-mannered exasperation – when the media’s doomsday narrative is first broached. A Colorado native and a major player on the successful Bush/Cheney re-elect effort in 2004, Beeson is even-keeled and good natured, yet his disdain for the emerging conventional wisdom that Obama has the election in the bag is palpable.   Read more.......  Article contributed by Steve Peters.
