Your morning jolt: James Earl Carter IV and the ‘poetic justice’ behind the Romney video

Updated at 5:30 p.m. with link to WABE (90.1FM) interview:

One of the most ironic notes of the 2012 presidential campaign was sounded last night when a video surfaced — courtesy of liberal magazine Mother Jones – in which Republican nominee Mitt Romney told a group of California fundraisers that he considered nearly half of all Americans to be unreachable moochers who can’t be weaned away from President Barack Obama.

The fellow who dug that video up was James Earl Carter IV of Dunwoody, 35-year-old son of Chip and grandson of the former president. “There are some people on Twitter and other places who are saying it was poetic justice that it was a Carter that found this, because of the way the Romney campaign has treated my grandfather,” Carter IV said. “I completely agree with that sentiment.”

Carter IV, who is currently unemployed and trying to break into the political research business, said he conducts daily searches on YouTube and other sites, looking for ground-breaking video. “At the end of August, I came across a video of Romney at a fund-raising event, talking about a factory he visited in China,” he said. Much of it had been blurred out, but it looked promising.

The video was posted – falsely – under the name of Rachel Maddow, the MSNBC host, but then disappeared after Maddow’s people filed an objection with YouTube. Shortly afterwards, the video popped up again – this time under the name of Anne Onymous.
Carter IV sent messages to the originator of the video through YouTube, then Tumblr. He soon had a new Tumblr follower named Anne Onymous. Direct contact quickly followed.

The video that had been posted so far had not included the portion in which Romney declared:

“There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. There are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it.”

Carter IV didn’t know where or when the recording was made. “The first thing I asked was can you tell me where this was filmed,” Carter said. “They wouldn’t tell me this, but they did respond to me.” (The video was made May 17 at the Boca Raton, Fla., home of financier Marc Leder, as part of a $50,000-a-person fund-raiser.)

As it turned out, the shooter of the video was associated with Global-Tech, a Hong Kong-based firm that a Bain Capital affiliate had acquired. Several weeks earlier, Carter IV had worked with Mother Jones writer David Corn on an article on the acquisition. Thus Carter IV was able to establish his bone fides with the source.

“They wanted to get the story out and they wanted to assure their jobs,” Carter said. And they wanted to make sure they weren’t running afoul of any privacy laws. So on Aug. 30, the last day of the Republican National Convention, Carter IV handed off the video contact to Corn of Mother Jones, who eventually obtained the whole of the video.

“Once I realized there was a lot more involved in this than I could personally deal with, my goal became to get the story out,” said Carter IV, who met Corn for the first time at the Democratic National Convention this month.

“I thought it would be a little bit of a story, but it has gotten a lot bigger than I would have ever thought,” said Carter IV, who picked up 1,500 Twitter followers overnight. He’s still looking for work, but things are looking up. “I’ve had some offers now. I haven’t accepted any of them yet, but that’s not a concern anymore, I guess,” he said.

Catch the Associated Press follow-up on the story here.

Denis O’Hayer of WABE (90.1FM) has posted a 14-minute interview with James Carter here. It’s worth checking out. O’Hayer asked him if revenge was a factor in his research. Said the president’s grandson:

“It wasn’t a part of the motivation, but it was definitely a part of the satisfaction.”

Walter Jones of Morris News Service says Republican Lee Anderson of Grovetown has declined yet another opportunity to debate U.S. Rep. John Barrow of Augusta:

A spokesman for Republican challenger Lee Anderson told the nation’s second-largest press club that he is declining an invitation to debate the man he wants to unseat, Democratic Congressman John Barrow.

The Atlanta Press Club’s Oct. 21 debate would be televised throughout the whole district on Georgia Public Broadcasting, unlike local media outlets that only reach voters in various parts of the 12th District. Anderson participated in the club’s debate during the primary.

Meanwhile, the AJC’s Politifact Georgia today takes a look at Republican charges that U.S. Rep. John Barrow, D-Augusta, “left taxpayers on the hook for $950k study on genetic makeup of ants.”

Taken in context, the ado is much about nothing. All he said was that this group is not going to vote for him and that his target for campaigning is not this group. It is getting distorted by the left and the general media when all he spaid was common sense.

He’s just lost the election with the release of this “candid” insight into his thinking. Keep giving Us more Mitt, Keep reminding ALL of US as to why would even considering VOTING for YOU or YOUR PARTY!”

Truth (mostly) hurts, doesn’t it. Like Mr. Carter, I am currently unemployed and have applied for benefits. It’s been a very humbling experience, and one that has instigated a great deal of soul searching. But, as I sit amongst my fellow unemployed at the center, I am struck by the number of applicants who I see using iPhones, displaying great nail manicures, high end shoes and clothing, etc. You know, stuff that I can’t afford. And these are the folks actually looking for work. My friend who is a pharmacist for a large, discount retail chain constant fills scripts for people coming in with medicare.state aid cards, sees them buying alcohol, smoking cigarettes, wacky nail jobs, jewelry all over, and the list goes on. Romney is, unfortunately, 100% truthful that there is a sizable segment of the population that thinks they are owed a living, abuse the system, won’t work, etc. Don’t know if it’s 47% or not, and would like to actually see some demographics. And those folks will never, ever vote for Romney or anyone who preaches self-responsibility because they have been generationally institutionalized to depend on the gov’t for everything, and have had any semblance of initiative and the old American “Can-Do” spirit bred out of them.

Objectively, the biggest ‘misstatement’ is the part where Romney says the at the 47% of the Population [that supports Obama)……are victims.’ I think everything else after that is debatable depending on your political bent, but the victims ‘bit’ is over the top IMO. Just sayin…..

The foreign corporations in Georgia from middle Georgia don’t pay and they are billion dollar corporations. They mine kaolin from seven counties and some of the poorest counties in Georgia.

The ‘spin’ was done by Galloway. It’s called the English language, and I have not heard or read that Romney used the word, ‘moochers’. The ‘spin’ was entirely Galloway’s and the liberal, so-called mainstream ‘news media’.

I can recommend a very good remedial course for you should you choose to accurately use the “English language”.

@ A dad: Perhaps they bought these things when they had a job? I-phones (older models) are cheap or free. Not everyone is like that anyway, you are picking a small sample size. I have a co-worker that doesn’t even have a car, let alone an I-phone, due to her low salary…and she is nearing retirement age. I really don’t think it’s possible to be living the high life on the tax payers’ dime, unless your standard for such is quite low.

What would happen if we all just quit working and joined the moochers? I have family members that get checks. Ive hired people that get checks. All there concerned with is not losing that check. They will work just hard enough to not lose their check. They never strive to get past the point of drawing a check.

I heard more real passion and conviction in Romney’s voice than I have ever previously heard. This is what he believes in his heart and in his gut. The problem with what he believes is that it is full of stereotypical thinking that reflects little in shades of gray, or nuance. Moreover, it reflects a man with a coldness of heart, imo.

Heaven help this nation – and this globe – if this man becomes President of the United States. What is sad is that Gov. Romney divides people into categories, instead of seeing the humanity – within all people – that connects all people. And, he not only divides, he sees with a hierarchial, smallness of vision that some are better than others based on their wealth, which evidently in his thinking, equates to virtue and hard work. Little does he understand that there are millions of people in this nation who work very hard, all of their lives, without making high incomes. What a sad, little person of shallow vision Romney has turned out to be – that that video revealed.

When the consciousness of a people centers on “tit for tat,” instead of simply understanding, those people have been diminished in their thinking, and in their souls. And, people who think in those ways are diminished people, no matter what the status of their wealth is.

I appeal to the American people, and to Southerners, not to elect Mitt Romney as our President. We deserve better

Another biased preamble brought to you by a state government that will do absolutely anything to pry open taxpayer wallets on behalf of their corporate donors, 96% of whom are from out of state and will not have their own children exposed to the schools that result from incompetent legislators meddling in educational matters they are entirely ignorant of. The fact that the Secretary of State owns the ballot language does not entitle him and his handlers to misrepresent truth and use the ballot as advocacy space.

The fact is that charter schools as a whole demonstrate no discernable improvement in student outcomes versus traditional public schools unless part of their charter is the right to sieve through their student population. The ballot language stating otherwise is a lie, and Brian Kemp’s second attempt to push through an initiative based on misrepresentation. Let’s all hope that this effort is no more successful than his twisting of the T-SPLOST preamble was.

I’m calling you on your use of the word ‘moocher’ in this column. I understand that you are a columnist, and that you have the right (and obligation) to express your opinion. Many of your readers may mistake this as a direct quote, and in that light you have misled at least some of your readers. In my opinion, this ‘crosses the line’. You have done a disservice to both Governor Romney and at least some of your faithful.

Do you not think an apology and clarification is in order here?

Why vote for Romney if he isn’t going to keep giving us welfare like Obama?
I’d be crazy to vote for someone who will reduce taxes on the rich when I don’t pay taxes; it’s just less for me.
I don’t like working very hard and two years of unemployment has been a sweet vacation.
Obama keep the food stamps coming! My subsidized housing is warm and comfy. Why should I pay the actual cost of a Marta ride when the rich all have cars?
The most important thing the government can do is get the standard of living of the poor up to the middle class; so tax the rich and increase welfare.
Cut military, education and most other government spending (other than entitlement). You don’t need an education to get government aid.

Romney is simply agreeing with Obama’s own Story of Julia, where Obama listed out all the ways Julia was dependent on government for everything, and Obama wants more of that. Romney wants less. Nothing really all that special or surprising here.

I’d love to get sneaks at Obama’s private conversations, not that it would matter. He made a widely reported very sexist comment about a female analyst the other day and no one cared. Had Romney made a similar comment, he would be called a misogynist on the front page of every paper in the country.

Oh, saw a good point. Is this like when Obama bashed people clinging to their guns and religion? When Obama disses half the country, it’s cheered, when Romney says the simple truth, that 47% pay no income tax, he gets bashed.

As far as the income tax, if you’ve got no skin in the game, why would you care about how efficiently it’s played? It’s not your money, you don’t pay income tax, it’s just some rich peoples’.

Like Obama meeting with Anti-Israel groups 35 times in the White House..and not meeting ONCE with Pro-Israel groups after they have REPEATEDLY tried to get one? You mean letting Russia and China UN VOTES decide our course of action when THE REST OF THE WORLD VOTED CONTRARY.

RUSSIA AND CHINA WILL NEVER GO ALONG WITH THE REST THE WORLD AND OBAMA LETS HEIR VOTE MAKE US SIT ON OUR HANDS AND NOT LEAD BUT FOLLOW?! We ARE the NEW Israel and we DEDICATED TO GOD AND TO DO HIS WILL AROUND THE WORLD AND LETTING OUR ADVERSARIES MINORITY VOTES LEAD US IS A PATHETIC DISGRACE.

I think that we will see some very interesting statistics as this election draws nearer and nearer. You will see spins from both sides of the aile. As far as this article is concerned, well, I have always respected this journalist. However, with what he has written here, there is nothing objective in his journalism. At the very least I find his choice of words misleading (”Moocher”) and boarderline irresponsible. So much for tansparency in journalism. But then again, the AJC has never prided themselves for there objectiveness. What I find scary is that we have over 45% on voter rolls that is considered a wash with their federal taxes. Seems to be a conflict of interest. I mean if I owed no federal taxes I am sure I would want the same administration pandering to me that is currently pandering to this 45%.
