During the 2012 campaign, Little Lord Willard loved to etch his sketch. Since he was absolutely and irrevocably committed to both sides of every issue,m it could be difficult to tell what he really thought about anything. Some Republicans even floated the rumor that he was really much more moderate than he had to appear for the sake of the extreme Republican base. Then a video tape appeared of him talking to fellow vulture capitalists, when he thought none of the peon classes were listening, and America got to see who he really is. To people like Little Lord Willard, the people who wait on them are virtually invisible, so it never occurred to him that there was a giant in the room, and what he thinks would become public. The man that made that happen is a patriotic hero. His name is Scott Prouty.

We saw this last night on Ed's show. A expose' on a filthy rich liar talking to the privileged few he chooses to associate with. Thankful for Scott Prouty's decision to let his video out and those still on the fence see what a POS Romney really was.

Transparency is a wonderful thing.
Having seen all sides of Rmoney; I am so grateful he lost.And saddened that he got any votes at all.

Watched the interview last night. It was well worth it! One good thing about the Republicans being soooo despicable is that it encourages people into taking action and not remaining silent. More people are opening their eyes to the insanity and inhumanity of the GOP.

What really sets me off is the fact that Romney doesn't think everyone should be entitled to health care! Everyone is or should be entitled.and as for the comment that people think the government owes them a living?? well, the way jobs are being shipped overseas...you know where I'm going on that...the man is a putzz. Romney is an idiotic bigot, a capitalistic vulture and not a man for the people. He represents all that is wrong with American government.

God bless and protect Scott Prouty I had been praying that the name of the filmmaker in this case would remain secret as the Teabaggers are so gibberingly insane they are likely to want something awful to happen to him and I am worried about how far they might go!

"You shouldn't have to pay $50,000 to hear how a candidate actually thinks" isn't that what REAL journalism is for and exactly what we don't get these days, particularly in the last election? God bless Scott Prouty he then did more research than any of the paid journalists have done in America amazing! He wanted the TRUTH to come out!

willard and his crew would love to go back to the days of feudal society with a few rich lords and many serfs to be their slaves.

I was so impressed with young man. This was no "gotcha" moment, it was done only for one man (Scott Proudy) to record a bit of history. Scott had no way of knowing what Romney was going to say to this crowd of fund raisers, at a $50,000 a plate dinner.

I learned even more about this while watching the interview, things we might have suspected, but didn't really know. Romney entered the dinner and began to demand that things "hurry up" - at $50,000 for dinner I would think these people had a right to linger if they pleased. That what motivated Scott to finally revealed the video was not the remark of 47% as much as Romney's attitude toward the near slave labor camps - uh, dormitories for the workers in China.

I thought , until I learned more that Romney was a decent guy with ideas that just didn't fit with my own. His attitude toward cheap labor, toward using people as tissues, use it - toss it, is so out of touch with any sense of empathy that I wonder who could vote for this man.

TomCat --- great minds - I posted the same interview last night as did Laura. I'm glad it's out there, the more it is posted the better chance people will see this man, Scott Poudy is a decent American.

Nice to know there are people who don't care about the fame or fortune that might be involved - this man just wanted to do the right thing which was show people how Willard really is. If I paid $50,000 for a dinner, I'd surely expect a lot more than Willard -

It is great to finally know who the real hero in this last election was. Scott Prouty is a real American hero. I hope he continues to do great things for this country. Thanks so much for sharing this.

I've always wondered - was Hillary Clinton actually present at that dinner, or was Romney just taking a general shot with the 'Hillary has to eat her beets' remark?

Does anybody know?

The American people should give Scott Prouty a award for what he done, I watched the Ed Show last night about this and we sure need more people to take action like Scott did he is a hero in my book. Thanks Tom.

The ironic thing about his little speech is that a majority of the 47% are Republicans in the deep South, retired military and the like.

No Dorothy Hillary was not there Mittens was just making a rude joke about her.

One wonders how George Romney ever existed. His father, his kid and grandkids are all scum and he was one of the good guys. Black sheep of the family I guess.

Many months ago now, a couple days after this video was released, I read that Jimmy Carter's grandson had something to do with it....now I learn that it was given to him and he released it. I was so glad to hear that. I'm also glad that no one is going after him, that I've read of anywhere at least.
When I read that Prouty originally didn't intend to release it, but that it weighed on his conscience.....I thought of Bradley Manning. Not that Prouty's on the same level of heroism as Manning, but it's nice to know that there are still people with consciences.
That 47% The Loser was targeting have enough targets on them right now....they are the people who don't make enough money to pay taxes. I don't know why the media just didn't SAY that at the time. Now, I'm going to go find a nice, quiet place to scream.

Ha ha ha TomCat, LLW took flip flopping well
into the Fourth Dimension.

Saw the interview with Mr. Prouty and am
convinced he was just trying to do good.

Excellent interiew and Mr Prouty is courageous to expose Rmoney in this way and come forward. I think there is a universal message here about doing the right thing for te right reasons. And clearly Mr Prouty has ethics!

Interesting that despite losing in November, CPAC has Rmoney speaking. The Republican/Teabaggers are a twisted bag of venemous snakes that need to be defanged!

old news and why a tribute to a person who has no ethics? Ethics should be universal and not called such only when it benefits your point of view Lynn.

If you saw someone committing a crime, would you report him, John? Same difference here - Willard was lying, running for office under false pretenses, trying to pretend he was something he is not. Mr. Prouty does have ethics - Willard does not.

Tom...Many thanks for the thread. I was unable to watch the Ed show when it aired. So I was able to catch through you. Many thanks again.
