Mother Jones magazine has now posted the complete video of Mitt Romney addressing a private fundraiser where he said that 47 percent of the country believes “that they are victims” and will vote for Obama “no matter what,” and suggested “the Palestinians have no interest whatsoever in establishing peace.”
Earlier on Tuesday, private equity executive Marc Leder, who has attracted attention for reportedly throwing lavish parties, acknowledged hosting the fundraiser for Romney. “I hosted a fundraiser for an old friend in May. I believe all Americans should have the opportunity to succeed, to improve their lives and to build even better lives for their children. I have supported people from both political parties who share this view and make it a priority, even though their ideas on how to achieve it may differ,” Leder said in a statement.
Below is the 49 minutes of video, in two parts, as posted by Mother Jones.
