You can mark my prediction now: A secret recording from a closed-door Mitt Romney fundraiser, released today by David Corn at Mother Jones, has killed Mitt Romney's campaign for president.

On the tape, Romney explains that his electoral strategy involves writing off nearly half the country as unmoveable Obama voters. As Romney explains, 47 percent of Americans "believe that they are victims." He laments: "I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives."

So what's the upshot? "My job is not to worry about those people," he says. He also notes, describing President Obama's base, "These are people who pay no income tax. Forty-seven percent of Americans pay no income tax."

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.

Romney has been vigorously denying President Obama's claims that his tax plan would raise taxes on the middle class. Now, he's been caught on video suggesting that low- and middle-income Americans are undertaxed.

(That one is especially problematic given the speculation about what's on Mitt's unreleased pre-2010 tax returns.)

Corn tells us there are more embarrassing moments on segments of the video he hasn't released yet. Romney jokes that he'd be more likely to win the election if he were Hispanic. He makes some awkward comments about whether he was born with a "silver spoon" in his mouth.

But those are survivable. The really disastrous thing is the clip about "victims," and the combination of contempt and pity that Romney shows for anyone who isn't going to vote for him.

Romney is the most opaque presidential nominee since Nixon, and people have been reduced to guessing what his true feelings are. This video provides an answer: He feels that you're a loser. It's not an answer that wins elections.

Yes. And even though some people will vote for him no matter what, he has alienated the moderate vote--which he needed to win.

He even alienated those that will vote for him "no matter what", the only part of his voting bloc is the wealthy who needs no gov't services.

I see the one responsible for leaking it is staying anon, probably from fear of losing his job, if they can remember the specifics of the Boca event they can pinpoint who did this, who appears to be the only one with a conscience.

We haven't even got to the debate part of the campaign.

For a guy that is running on his record as a CEO, he sure is doing a terrible job of managing his own campaign.

Romney never had a chance but the Republicans decided early on in the primary season that he was the one to take their party down in flames.

Gotta clarify the only voting bloc of his he did not alienate is the wealthy.

Fox refuses to cover those remarks, that is funny and shows who the sore losers in this is. If it was Obama making off the cuff remarks like that they would be on it 24/7 and so would CNN and MSNBC.

Wonder if the conservative tilted papers like the BDT will even mention it? Doubtful, I seen one of their headlines where 90k jobs were created in the US and the unemployment rate falling a couple tenths was a "disaster". That newspaper uis good with local news but is sorry in national politics.

It is funny when you talk to the average Fox viewer. They are so out of touch with reality.

I have seen HuffPo, CNN, and even MSNBC web sites do hit pieces on Obama and his administration. You rarely see that on Fox unless it is an opinion piece.

I agree he is good for another 4 years, would hate to see another tax break for billionaires and see the country broke for another 40 years beyond the damage Dubya gave us.

Here's the full transcript.

The man how one of the lowest IQs I have found EVER in the history of presidential candidates.

But then, why is that surprising given he believes this

Documentation for many of these statments can be found at www.mrm.org

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that they believe your Church is wrong, your Christian creeds are abomination to God, and you pastor or Priest is a hireling of Satan.

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that there is salvation only in their church and all others are wrong.

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that those who have been through their temples are wearing sacret underwear to protect themselves from "evil". This "evil" includes non-Mormon religions like yours.

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU about their secret temple rites at all. If they did, you would spot them as non-Christians immediately.

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that they think "familiar spirits" are good, and that their Book of Mormon has a "familiar spirit". Leviticus 19;31 says familiar spirits defile one, and are to be avoided at all costs.

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that women receive salvation only through their Mormon husbands, and must remain pregnant for all eternity.

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that they intend to be gods themselves some day, and are helping to earn their exaltation to godhood by talking to you.

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that they intend to have many wives in heaven, carrying on multiple sex relations throughout eternity, until they have enough children to populate their own earth, so they can be "Heavenly Father" over their own planet!

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that you were once a spirit-child of their heavenly father, and one of his numerous wives before you were born on earth.

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that the Virgin Mary really wasn't a virgin at all but had sex relations with their heavenly father to produce the Mormon version of Jesus Christ

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that their leaders taught that Jesus had at least three wives and children while he was on this earth.

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that the "heavenly father" they ask you to pray to with them, is really an exalted man that lives on a planet near the star base Kolob, and is not the Heavenly Father of the Bible at all.

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that Jesus was really Lucifer's brother in the spirit world, and it was only due to a "heavenly council" vote that Jesus became our redeemer instead of Satan!!
