Romney Whisper Update

This thing won't quite go away. A reader writes:

Some people have enhanced the first "he raised taxes" whisper using audio technology and have discovered that there was actually more to it than just "he raised taxes".  They've disconvered that more can be heard: "He raised taxes, I'm not gonna...".  Listen to the full enhanced audio yourself.  Go out and get a tape and enhance it yourself if you think this is wrong.

This is even greater proof that there is something going on here.  If this is correct, then it's not just a microphone malfunction, but an ACTUAL answer to the question Romney was given: "He (Reagan) raised taxes.  I'm not going to raise taxes."

Go after this!  After being lied to about the war, about WMDs, about torture, about absolutely everything from the GOP powerhouse, this cannot be left for us to figure out at a later time once Romney is in the White House!

I really don't know what happened. But I have yet to hear a convincing explanation either.
