A crowd chant from a Romney-Ryan rally in Dayton, Ohio on Tuesday has become the subject of much dispute after MSNBC’s Morning Joe aired this video for panelists. Over video footage of the rally, MSNBC added text of the crowd’s chant, which they claimed was “Ryan! Ryan! Ryan!” as Paul Ryan handed the microphone over to Mitt Romney, who then told the crowd “Wait a second, wait a second: Romney, Ryan, Romney, Ryan!” MSNBC’s argument, it seems — based on Joe Scarborough’s reaction — was that Mitt Romney can’t even get his own fans to cheer for him.
But someone who attended the event told The Blaze that the crowd was actually chanting “Romney,” and that Romney was encouraging the crowd to cheer for both.
Take a listen for yourself with audio boosted and background noise — cheers as opposed to chants — reduced in relevant portions.
