Romney "47 Percent" Video Recorder Comes Forward, Credits Bill Clinton

by at . Comments

The man who recorded Mitt Romney's now-infamous "47 percent" comments at a fundraiser in Florida will reveal himself Wednesday night on MSNBC.

In a preview of his interview, the bartender credits former President Bill Clinton for his decision to bring a camera to work that fateful day. Say what now?

The Huffington Post reports that his employer previously catered an event where Clinton spoke, and Bill, being Bill, posed for photos with the entire staff.

The bartender decided to bring his camera to the Romney fundraiser, hoping he could get a photo with the Republican presidential candidate as well.

What he got that night turned out to be much more memorable.

The man would not get a picture with Romney as he'd hoped - Mitt arrived late and left quickly after his remarks - but he decided to set his camera on the bar.

In doing so, he happened to capture a huge campaign moment.

He said that while recording Romney, he never thought about distributing the video, but after he heard Romney's 47 percent comment, he felt as if he had to.

"I felt it was a civic duty," he said of the quote, which he disliked.

"I couldn't sleep after I watched it. I had a duty to expose it."

The Teabag Party was started by the minutemen and they were started by the KKK (these are the uneducated that believe the south will rise again). Now they control the GOP, who now want to send out coconuts with the same old GOP message of protecting the rich, because they no longer hold a lead on civil liberties because they were the ones who came up and passed the Patriot Act, they were the ones who kidnapped and waterboarded, they were the ones who passed vaginal ultrasound bills throughout the nation (but leave the child abandoned after birth), they are the ones who love hating the gays (even though some secretly practice it), they were the ones who passed minority voter suppression laws right before a national election. But hey keep doing, what you are doing, and the end game is clear, you are out, finished. I think the GOP has written off all minorities (who needs us, honestly who needs you!), but hey send out your coconuts, but don’t expect winning any elections. The GOP is reaping what they have sown!
