Missing Minutes in Mitt Tape

Conservatives are upset that the tape of Mitt Romney's controversial remarks is missing material at what could be a crucial moment

|

The videos of Mitt Romney's remarks at a May fundraiser, released in full by Mother Jones yesterday, omit "one to two minutes" of the candidates remarks, the journalist who obtained the video told POLITICO.

The omission comes between parts one and two of the video, following Romney's now famous remark that ""there are 47 percent who are with [President Barack Obama], who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims" and who would never vote for him. Part one ends with Romney discussing the "47 percent," part two picks up with him talking about China.
