Is Romney just pandering to filthy rich donors or is he really speaking his mind this once? David Corn, who first broke the story for Mother Jones, talks about what this means for the downward spiraling Romney campaign. More leaked footage from the private fundraiser also reveals Romney trashing a two-state solution for Israel, in direct conflict with his previously stated opinions.
Since Mother Jones released the secret videos, the story has been riding the wave of newspaper headlines and Twitter memes. Corn and New York Magazine‘s John Heilemann discuss whether Romney can recover from “two horrific weeks” on MSNBC’s Hardball.
