No, Conservatives Aren’t Taking ‘You Didn’t Build That’ Out of Context
Made popular 307 days ago in
The president’s astonishing and revealing comments in Virginia last weekend have trickled up from the conservative blogosphere to center stage in the 2012 presidential campaign. A reinvigorated Mitt Romney has seized on the remarks, parlaying the president’s candid expression of his government-centric worldview into a focused and effective line of attack. The Obama campaign, meanwhile, is mired in negative attacks and petty controversies. The bottom hasn’t fallen out of their polling yet, but things aren’t looking robust either. Desperate to beat back Romney’s surge in confidence and clarity, the Left has taken to claiming that conservatives are taking Obama’s words “out of context.” One of the Washington Post’s in-house liberal bloggers, Greg Sargent, is one of many advancing that case. But the Examiner’s Phil Klein is having none of it, pointing out that the full context of Obama’s comment actually reinforces the thesis over which Romney is battering Obama:
Obama’s defenders argue the “that” in “you didn’t build that” refers to “roads and bridges.” I’m not so sure we can make that assumption, given that “business” is the noun that directly precedes the pronoun “that.” But I don’t necessarily disagree with the general interpretation offered by liberals that Obama’s intention was to argue that government helps create the environment which allows people to build businesses. Even if we were to give Obama the benefit of the doubt in this paragraph, however, it doesn’t get him of the hook. The real damaging passage is the one that comes directly before the one cited above, in which Obama said:

Barry's biggest gaffe to date?
Yes, Soros and his minders will have him back on the Telepromter shortly.
No, but it's really impossible to gauge as the liberal media will not report his negatives. Took CNN four days to say anything about this one.
This is not a scientific survey,
to learn more. Results may not total 100% due to rounding and voting descrepencies.

More lies from Barry. For God's sake, words have meanings! They walk more things back that the let stand. What a poor excuse for 'leadership'!
Obama Claims He Never Said “You Didn’t Build That”
OK folks, if you have not been offended enough by Barack Obama’s outright lies, then this one will certainly do it. After claiming that people who built businesses didn’t do it on their own, Team Obama has come out with a new ad saying that he didn’t say that.
The ad comes up with Mitt Romney reading a direct quote from Barack Obama, then the ad cuts to a snide text remark, “The only problem? That’s not what he (Obama) said.”
The problem is that not even twenty seconds later the clip comes up with Barack Obama stating exactly what Romney said he did. Someone at the Obama campaign might need some sort of psychiatric help I think.
Seriously, this is Orwellian. The creepiness of blatant lies is very disturbing. This isn’t like semantics which can occur in politics and it takes some investigating to figure it out. Obama says exactly what Romney claims he said and what we have video of him saying right in the very ad spot!

She/He ALWAYS gets free passes from the dim c RATS while Tea party and Republicans gets falsely accused by the american communist party (dumb craps).
If it wasn't for the people, there wouldn't be a Government. The people are what build the Country, while the Government takes. Too much Government is a burden on people, not a help.
