I wonder how this one happened.
Maybe you’ve seen this video, widely circulated, in which a desperate Mitt Romney tries to get the crowd to chant his name too during an appearance with Paul Ryan. It elicits quite a reaction from Joe Scarborough.
Turns out the typing on the video suggesting the crowd was shouting “Ryan” was fake.
From the Huffington Post, which had run a story about the video.
UPDATE: A reporter who attended the event contacted The Huffington Post to say that the crowd was chanting Romney’s name, not Ryan’s, and that Romney added his running mate’s name to the chant, not the other way around.
So Romney was actually being a gentleman instead of a loser begging for some attention.
But of course, that doesn’t fit the current storyline, does it?
