Twitter is going nuts on this. A previous diary regarding the 5 minute clip was on the Rec list earlier tonight.

I may have started some of the tumult by posting this diary earlier today.

These diaries focus on an off air back and forth with a Des Moines radio host in 2007.

I am told the station, WHO-AM, features a conservative lineup including Rush. It is owned by Clear Channel.

The clip lasts about 5 minutes.  
Here is a link to the partial clip:

The full video of the interview has been found.

The full video lasts 20+ Minutes and is worth checking out.

The video is fascinating with discussions on abortion, Roe v Wade, the Supreme Court, and the second coming to Missouri. There is more bullying behavior. At one point I thought I was watching the Presidential Debates again.

"You got a turn, now I get an opportunity to speak. That's how it works."
Henry Blodget from the Business Insider runs a partial analysis of the full interview.

One of my favorite quotes:

at about 7:20

I was effectively pro-choice (as Governor of Massachussetts)
The first 3 minutes are banter about barbecues and business. The rest is a very informative view into the world of Mitt Romney.  

Here is a key exchange transcribed by the Business Insider:

HOST: "Is Roe vs. Wade the law of the land?"

ROMNEY: "It is now. It was improperly decided..."

HOST: [Invoking a writer... ] "... [The writer] would say that the Supreme Court doesn't make law. They can't make law. There's only three sources of law, and the Court is not one of them."

ROMNEY: "We obviously apply what the Supreme Court tells us we must do."

HOST: "Even if it's unconstitutional? Even if they just make it up?"

ROMNEY: "Unfortunately, that's a decision that the Court has the first choice of making...  And then we have redress... Our redress is open to us because the Constitution does lay out how we can overturn a court decision..."

Given the secrecy of Romney and his campaign, it is another chance to see a window into Mitt Romney.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
