Politics
Boston.com: Secretly filmed video of Mitt Romney, apparently at fundraiser, reveals  unguarded views
WASHINGTON – Mitt Romney, during a private fundraiser captured on video, told a group of donors in much blunter terms than he does publicly how he feels about the election. He joked about his wealth, and quipped that he would have a better shot at victory if he were Latino.

But the most striking portion of the video -- clips of which were apparently taken surreptitiously earlier this year, began surfacing online in recent weeks, and appeared in more depth this afternoon on the website of Mother Jones -- shows Romney talking in disparaging ways about nearly half of the electorate.
