The bartender — um, videographer  — who set up a camera at a Mitt Romney fundraiser last May and caught the candidate’s “47 percent” comment on tape has gone public and is being lauded as perhaps the greatest American hero of our time. Ed Schultz devoted a full hour tonight to Scott Prouty, focusing at length on the great risk he took by anonymously handing over a videotape that was shot in a room filled with cameras.

Cue the booming movie trailer voice for Moore’s next film: “In a ROOM FULL OF CAMERAS, only ONE MAN had the COURAGE.”

Whatever the danger, Obama’s supporters have Prouty’s back.

Prouty’s right about not having to pay $50,000 to find out what a candiate really thinks. Obama’s fundraiser with Jay-Z and Beyoncé was only a reasonable $40,000 a head. What kind of person has $50,000 for a fundraiser? (Or a cool half-million for quarterly face-time with the president?)

Can a presidential phone call be far behind? A beer summit maybe?

What career advice does Prouty have for Romney?

  • 1CatEye

    Ok. He’s a hero because he secretly taped a speech where the worst thing said was the truth. Wow. Dims really don’t have any heros, do they?

        • CitizenEgg

          And he’s out there admitting to it and making money off of it. Is there anyone from Romney’s campaign or the RNC, or the venue where the dinner was held (and employed this guy) who will press charges?

          • http://twitter.com/TheAngieNC2 Angie (D)

            Probably not — the MSM can completely distorted Romney’s actual words (hence people thinking that he *hates* 47% of the country, which isn’t *at all* what he said; he was talking about people who would vote *for* Obama no matter what — and he was right) and complete lie to cover up Obama’s actual words (see: “you didn’t build that;” “if you like your insurance you can keep your insurance” and just about every other thing Obama has said) so any lawsuit will just make them look like the big, bad, rich guys who are picking on this poor “little” guy. And the same idiots who voted for Obama will buy it.

    “B-B-B-But Joe! You blocked my Prius again with your nasty pick-up truck!”

    Seriously though the left has really effed up parameters for what constitutes a hero. A hero should be defined as an individual who performs a courageous act in the face of dire consequences. Exactly what dire consequences does this guy face? Being lauded by 90% of the establishment media? Enjoying VIP status at every cocktail party in Manhattan, DC, and LA? Having leftist plaudits and accolades rain down upon him like manna from Heaven? He obviously has nothing to fear from government considering the President is the guy he helped elect.

    The left is giving this guy kudos for having the “courage” to do something that will win him fame and praise. Hell I guess we should call Anne Hathaway courageous for starring in “Les Miserables” or Taylor Swift courageous for releasing her latest album. Good Lord, what an Orwellian world in which we live.

      • Patsplacepp

        @3seven77:disqus I don’t get your statement or any of the venom being thrown at this guy. For right or wrong the majority of the comments here agree with what Romney said. They actually believe the words that came out of his mouth. If thats the case, what was the real harm in this video? This one video could never have sunk Romney’s run for office if he believed in what he said. I know last week on Fox he said he didn’t mean what he said, but during the campaign he didn’t try to correct his stament. Just my two cents

        • Dirjj

          You are correct. Most of us here do agree with what Romney said. There was nothing wrong with what he said, as long as you’re wise enough to understand the meaning. The Left and their Media allies know what he meant, but distorted it, and interpreted it to the eternally stupid as Romney “hating” half the population. It bascially came down to Romney saying, ” You have a beautiful family”, and the Media reporting that Romney wants to rape your kids. Now, you can have a difference of opinion with Romney, but the Ad hominum attack leveled at him are ridiculous. Romney was the most qualified person to run for Office in generations. It’s a shame we don’t have him to fix things.

      Recording at a fundraiser is not an invasion of privacy…. If it were, they would have sued already, but they couldn’t and didn’t.

            So… he was an employee, who, instead of doing his job, he decided to set up a video camera to spy on Romney? Sounds unprofessional to me…

          • $44640340

            1) The camera was in plain sight, so no spying.

            2) He did his “job” (and extra good to, might i add)

            3) I’m more than sure the wealthy owner who threw the party considered it, but under advice of counseling was told “eh… If there were other cameras there, you don’t have a case”

            Why don’t all of you who think he broke the law, sue FOR Mitt Romney, as a good gesture.?

          • Maxwell

            You sound so idiotic, and I mean that in the nicest way possible.

            1. Just because the camera is in plain sight it does not mean he wasn’t spying, just really bad at it. If I set up a camera in the women’s dressing room in plain sight, I still have broken law. I can’t say to the police, “well in was plain sight, so that means I wasn’t trying to spy.” They would laugh at me while I rotted in a cell.

            2. If you’re insinuating that his job to record Romeny making certain comments… I don’t even have anything for this it’s so stupid.

            3. “it?” What are you implying by saying it? Sueing? I never once said that Romeny should sue Prouty. I just said had some rights violated.

            Legally we are not allowed to sue for someone else, but you have displayed your knowledge of the law is limited, so I’m not surprised you believe that is possible.

          If you’re implying that I believe O’Keefe to be a hero, much like the liberal respondents, I would dispute that. The designation of “hero” should not be thrown about so capriciously. As for the video itself, I agree with Mitt Romney’s words-especially the full video that was later made available with the exception of those minutes lost due to “camera malfunction”-but find that to be no longer prescient or relevant in the ensuing months since the election.

    Only the intellectually dishonest would claim people only take entitlements as a last resort. We now have 50,000,000 on food stamps for Pete’s sake. This is all part of liberal strategy and the nation knows it.

    Romney was correct of course, but in a nutshell, you’re not going to get a date with an ugly woman after you call her ugly and voters who are connected to entitlements like a child to an umbilical cord aren’t going to vote for someone who is telling them “I’m going to get you back to work.”

    Be that as it may, I’d rather lose an election being a conservative than win one as an entitlement-loving Democrat. Politics is cyclical. Eventually people will realize a lifetime of being a Democrat usually means a lifetime of economic dog paddling and moderates will abandon the party for a brighter tomorrow, long promised by the left but rarely, if ever, delivered.

    47% are takers. truth!

    It takes very little effort to garner praise from a pack of liberals. And like any infant liberals are quickly impressed by a shiny rattle and a piece of rubber filled with hot gases.

    Also stating a fact doesn’t make you a hero you twits, it makes you somewhat less illiterate then the 80% of youth “learning” in the New York education system.

  • Randy W

    Its late and I am tired, I am completely missing the courage part…This took courage because???

  • Moonbeam

    The man that changed the course of an election!y My hero!

      So a man could be elected to double down on every policy and position liberals claimed to despise when Bush was President?

  • NCRelite

    Romney was 100% correct. Also, how is taking a failing company and turning it around a bad thing?

    • Jd1367

      He did it without hiring illegal immigrants, so Libs hate that

  • Moonbeam

    Not sure if you right wingers will pick up on this: the man actually saved a woman from a drowning death

    Also: he had a previous run in with Romney – also very telling:

    “He and Romney shared a typical bartender-to-patron moment. “I handed him a diet Coke with lemon on it,” the filmmaker recalled, “because I was told that that’s what he drank.” Romney didn’t acknowledge his server at all.”

    A lifetime of being waited on produces this in people. All expectation, no compassion, and disdain when something is even remotely off kilter from those conditioned expectations.

    Contrast this with Prouty’s experience with Clinton, who, after a speaking engagement, went back into the kitchen to meet and thank the staff for all the work they had done that evening. When Romney showed up to his fated 47% evening, he started barking at the caterers to hurry up serving the guests because he was ready to talk. Different worlds, and thank god Mitt is no longer trying to run ours.

    • Moonbeam

      The same guy that strapped his dog on the car roof and wondered why people where upset by that cute little story of neglect and dispassion.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002109532283 Jillane Kent

        As opposed to the audio account of Obama recalling his canine culinary forays with no discernible note of revulsion?

        • Moonbeam

          Obama was 6 year old child obeying stepfather,
          Mittens and Ann Romney were 2 adults that
          strapped that dog on the roof of that car.

            Cry me a river, u low info voter.

            But you see, he did not EAT his dog. Got it?

    • http://twitter.com/jimni27 Jimni27

      And I am POSITIVE you have never heard THESE stories about Mitt Romney because the media never bothered to tell you: http://www.glennbeck.com/2012/09/12/the-incredible-stories-of-character-the-media-isnt-telling-you-about-mitt-romney/

    • Elena0412

      So the 38-year-old cater waiter was butthurt that a successful man didn’t give him proper “respect” and turned on his little phone cam. He’s a loser. Im sure his parents are relieved he left the basement, though.

  • http://twitter.com/jimni27 Jimni27

    There is absolutely no difference between what Romney said and Obama talking about those that “cling to guns and religion”, business owners “not building that” and pretty much anyone who has made a success out of their life- the only difference is the MSM didn’t bother to point that out ad nauseam. What this punk and the MSM did to an honest hardworking man who wanted to do more for the poor of this country than Obama sickens me.

  • brewerandpatriot

    Romney was wrong; it is more like 49%.

  • http://twitter.com/1RandiStarr Randi Starr

    Ahhhhh, a lifetime bartender…………..have a drink on me my man………….because you’re still a loser.

  • michael s

    No hero of mine, but he got Pres Obama back in the white house. HOOOWAH.

    • WisconsinPatriot

      BAMN
      How liberals justify EVERY sleazy move they make.

  • CitizenEgg

    And now he’s a ‘Film maker’, not just a hidden camera covert creep. That’s like leveling up in the democrat video game of ‘smear the other side’.

  • http://twitter.com/TheAngieNC2 Angie (D)

    Oh looky — a nice shiny distraction for the low info voters from Obama’s lies and general buffoonery re: sequester by stirring up class warfare with lies that a generous, decent man who gives millions a year to charity needs to do “more” for the poor or that he made his money in “vulture capitalism” (which even if he did, it’s still better than the way Obama & the DC pols did — stealing from the tax payers by feeding on the government teat).

  • DizzyMissL

    Leftists don’t care that the video was edited.

    Hypocrisy much?

  • ToyZebra

    As the lifeboat sailed away, Scott Prouty bravely drilled a hole in it so all the rich people on board would drown. The poor people cheered, then wondered why their ankles were feeling wet.

  • John Barleycorner

    Thank god for people like Scott; America deserves the truth about all our candidates. If Romney had any balls he would have said this in public, not hidden away in some $50,000 fundraiser for the “elite”. Everybody who has a problem with this is obviously a sore loser. If it had been someone taping Obama saying similar things, the Repugs would be cheering. Bunch of hypocrites.

    • Gallatin

      Kind of like how obowmao said “cling to their guns and Bibles” in a public forum right?

    • jb

      Next up for Scott: getting the Khalidi videotape at the LA Times?

  • © Sponge

    So, they had the same sentiment about Joe the Plumber, right? RIGHT!?!?!?

    *crickets*

  • Gallatin

    Wow I don’t even know where to begin. “A working class hero.” “We progressives need to protect him.”

    I guess he will never be able to bar tend again. Are these people serious? He was afraid to release the video? He was courageous? Whatever.

  • kim

    Maybe Romney should just stop donating to charities for the poor, and when services cannot be funded they can tell the poor it was because of heroes like this

  • conservative2012

    It’s just sad that the left thinks this guys a hero.

  • Billy Beefcaked

    Scott Prouty is a hero for releasing the truth! That we have become a Nanny state, and that the only reason why King Barack the 1st won that election last year, was because THOSE 47% ALL VOTED FOR HIM! The truth hurts people.

    YOU KNOW WHAT IS GOING TO HURT EVEN MORE!? Obamacare when it is fully inplace. I hope you liberal commie democrats enjoy loosing your health benefits and also enjoy the buttfuck all Americans are going to get in the taxes to pay for this. All so 20+million illegal aliens and supposive 10 million Americans can get FREE HEALTHCARE!

    You have got to love socialism!

    • $44640340

      LMAO…!

      With your BMI & you’re talking about “Health Care”

      Stop Stop Stop… Your hysterical.

  • Belinda Henry

    I like how Romneys the scum bag for being honest. This is why this country is so screwed up because democrats honestly believe this crap and never bother to look up the facts.

  • EastValleyConservative

    How exactly is he a hero? None of these nutjobs ever intended to vote for him, nor did it sway anyone who was going to vote for him. The truth is apparently a nasty thing to progressives and their sheeple.

  • HWGood

    Leaks, hot mikes and bugs. In Republican support these things are vastly evil.
    Supporting democrats, they are wonderful.
    Aren’t double standards grand?

  • jb

    I always thought it was interesting about those reports popping up that people attending Obama’s fund-raisers were astounded that they were not allowed to bring in any recording devises or phones. Very telling. and very courageous, Barack! Now, would the LA Times please release the Khalidi video, thanks,

  • http://twitter.com/ZivaKS Kathy Skaggs

    You can’t fix stupid not even with duct tape. They all think he is a hero because he told on Mitt Romney, what idiots. Romney just told the truth and the only ones who thought it made a difference was liberals, who would not have voted for him anyway.
