Media Battlezone: “Everybody Ready? PIVOT!”

If you follow the news, it seems the implosion of the Obama administration’s foreign policy, and the growing anti-American hostilities in Muslim countries in North Africa, Pakistan, and across the Middle East has suddenly ceased, because last night, Mother Jones released something shiny:

 During a private fundraiser earlier this year, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney told a small group of wealthy contributors what he truly thinks of all the voters who support President Barack Obama. He dismissed these Americans as freeloaders who pay no taxes, who don’t assume responsibility for their lives, and who think government should take care of them. Fielding a question from a donor about how he could triumph in November, Romney replied:

 

At Memorandum, the Make Believe Media (MBM) are wetting themselves….

As the Firefox script shows, left-leaning websites are all over these truncated (MJ’s David Corn promises he has more) cell phone clips. I should (but won’t) update the screen grab, because I just took a look, and the dogpile has grown. The spinning analysis of the ramifications of the clips on Romney’s candidacy is coming fast and furious, with many members of the MBM deciding this video release is a game-breaker; a blow Mittens’ campaign cannot possibly recover from….

I’m surprised Oliver Wendell Donut and the MediaMatters guys haven’t yet weighed in to tell the MSLSD drones what to believe in regard to the Unicorn King.

Ace calls this kind of shit wishcasting. Cap’n Ed ain’t buying it, noting “This instant-toast analysis is the product of a media with too much pressure to be profound and not enough perspective to resist it.” I tend to agree. The MBM could never defend Obama’s domestic policies, and now, literally, his foreign policy is collapsing in flames, so there is only one thing left (which I figured would be Chicago’s central focus anyway, because that just how ObamaCo rolls)…. Destroy Mitt.

Bloomberg’s Josh Barro, “Today, Mitt Romney Lost the Election“:

This is an utter disaster for Romney.

Romney already has trouble relating to the public and convincing people he cares about them. Now, he’s been caught on video saying that nearly half the country consists of hopeless losers.

The NY Times’ “oh so civil” resident  conservative jackhole, Dave “Pants Crease” Brooks, in a piece titled, “Thurston Howell Romney,” opining on the video’s “meaning”:

First, it suggests that he really doesn’t know much about the country he inhabits. Who are these freeloaders? Is it the Iraq war veteran who goes to the V.A.? Is it the student getting a loan to go to college? Is it the retiree on Social Security or Medicare?

Last night, on NRO’s “Corner”, Jonah Goldberg, noting the Twitter explosion that followed the clip’s release, wrote “… you’d think Mother Jones had just found video of Mitt Romney strangling a hooker with her own pantyhose.” He went on to compare/contrast Mittens’ perceived gaffe with this blast from the past:
