According to this,
You can import only photo and video content taken with the built-in camera or captured on the device. You can't import photo or video content synced from iTunes.
it seems Apple doesn't want me to achieve this.

Is there an app in the App Store that will let me do this so I can get that video from my iPad on my macbook's desktop?

DropBox is a feasible solution, but I was hoping someone developed something to allow a person to treat their iOS devices like an external hard drive at least.  But I'm sure Apple works diligently to prevent this on a mac.  

It would be more convenient to be able to plug my iOS device into my macbook, go to Finder, find my device and then just drag and drop ANY files onto the device since it has so much storage these days! :)
