Worst president ever? Ouch. I can’t snippet any of it, because it’s ALL GOOD. Go read now. Go.
Obama sycophants are attempting to take back the “they-didn’t-build-that” argument by patiently explaining to the stupid reicht-wingers that they were talking about the roads. THE ROADS.
The campaign released a new video Tuesday with another of Cutter’s straight-to-camera, lectures attacking Mitt Romney, this time on his contentions that the president said business owners didn’t build their companies on their own.
In the three-minute clip, Cutter says Romney “blatantly twists” the president’s words — he was talking about businesses needing public help with such things as public roads and other infrastructure — and she proceeds to blast the former Massachusetts governor for “flagrant hypocrisy” – Romney’s Bain Capital investments got public assistance — and for wanting to give tax cuts to the rich.
She says it all with a smile in her eyes and an elementary-school-teacher tone …
Politico calls Cutter a “viral video star.” Here’s the video – if you can stomach it …the irony is rich.
At the end is this little plea-
Please share this video with your friends, and not just your friends who already support the president,” Cutter says in the new video. “We all have a relative who spends all their time forwarding those crazy email chains. So make sure they get the facts, too.”
I won’t insult anyone’s intelligence by analyzing this “viral” video’s distortions, strawmen, and out-right lies.
Yea. Pell grants are really going to help small businesses. Someone explain that to me.
Yesterday, on Facedouche, someone posted this as proof that Romney was a big old hypocrite:
Mitt Romney has criticized President Obama for his “you didn’t build that line,” when it came to businesses. The president was making an “it takes a village” argument, which the Romney campaign and conservatives have roundly panned.
But in 2002, during his speech at the Opening Ceremonies at the Winter Olympics — the games in which Romney was lauded for turning around the management — Romney made a similar argument about Olympians.
“You Olympians, however, know you didn’t get here solely on your own power,” said Romney, who on Friday will attend the Opening Ceremonies of this year’s Summer Olympics. “For most of you, loving parents, sisters or brothers, encouraged your hopes, coaches guided, communities built venues in order to organize competitions. All Olympians stand on the shoulders of those who lifted them. We’ve already cheered the Olympians, let’s also cheer the parents, coaches, and communities. All right! [pumps fist].”
Well, given that Olympic athletes need sponsors to pay their way to the games, I’d say Romney’s not too far off. The left really has gone off it’s rocker trying to defend Obama’s comment. I think, though, that the easiest way to explain to a lefty how far off the mark Obama is in giving credit to the roads for a businesses’ success, is to explain to a them that they, alone, are not responsible for successfully raising their own children. They didn’t do that on their own. They needed the roads, to begin with, to get to the hospital to have them in the first place. They need the government’s infrastructure to take them to school, or to go to the store to buy them food.
No. Mom and Dad. You look down at your successful, beautiful child, and you didn’t build that on your own.
Explanations of what he said/what he meant aside, the reality of the situation is that he was small mocking business owners. He was playing to his base who don’t really like successful folks, and prefer to “glamorize the poor and what they call the ‘workingclass’.”
In his speech, Obama began talking about infrastructure being important. That’s fair, everyone agrees with that. Roads and teachers are nice. But then he began throwing jabs, even saying that he “chuckles” whenever a businessman tells him that he’s successful because he’s so much “smarter” than everyone else.
Yea, that rings TOTALLY true. And, of course, Obama chuckles because HE knows better…
