Obama countdown

Friday, July 20, 2012

He didn't say that. Someone else made that happen.

Good luck with this. Incredibly the Obama campaign is denying that Obama said "You didn't build that" during his now famous speech at that Roanoke firehouse. How quickly "you didn't build that" has turned to "didn't say that". At first Obama's defenders claimed the clip was taken out of context and at the very worse Obama was guilty of sloppy syntax. What Obama really meant to say was "you didn't build the roads and bridges" as if a large part of the population was laboring under the false notion that Steve Jobs built the Golden Gate Bridge. No, the context of the speech was the mocking of individual achievement. "You" didn't succeed because "you" were smart; "you" didn't succeed because "you" worked hard because someone else built the road to "your" business.
If at first the public believed that the composite character Julia, where government does everything for a sorry, dependant, mope but brush her teeth, was just liberal rhetorical excess it can be forgiven but in the larger context of the Roanoke speech Julia is the ideal, a sort of welfare state ubermensch. In the clip below Romney reads verbatim from Obama's speech then snarky text  tells the viewer that Obama didn't say that, then incredibly the clip shows Obama saying just that. Maybe someone else made that happen. As I said, good luck with this.

  1. "You didn't build that",""Someone built the roads"We were helped along the way.. Yes we Owe it All to the government.. well, trust me ..if you make any money "YOU OWE IT ALL"
    I just don't get it. You mean the Government actually built or helped us along the way? Like "they" built a road... where did they get the money to do this? Did they have a bake sale? Or, perhaps they just helped us like the did GM. Just a loan... they have money to loan to us.. and all is well.
    Well I have attached what the Government does for us. listed below I have an actual email I received from GM back in 2008. So you see what happens when we take what happens when we accept the "help" of the government. We become what they are.."takers"not givers, and we actually believe the government is helping us... but someone is paying for all of this.SO WE DID BUILD THIS AFTER ALL. (and paid for it... MR President, quit taking credit for what others do... this isn't a Nobel Peace prize.

    Dear XXXXXXX

    You made the right choice when you put your confidence in General Motors, and we appreciate your past support. I want to assure you that we are making our best vehicles ever, and we have exciting plans for the future. But we need your help now. Simply put, we need you to join us to let Congress know that a bridge loan to help U.S. automakers also helps strengthen the U.S. economy and preserve millions of American jobs.

    Despite what you may be hearing, we are not asking Congress for a bailout but rather a loan that will be repaid.

    The U.S. economy is at a crossroads due to the worldwide credit crisis, and all Americans are feeling the effects of the worst economic downturn in 75 years. Despite our successful efforts to restructure, reduce costs and enhance liquidity, U.S. auto sales rely on access to credit, which is all but frozen through traditional channels.

    The consequences of the domestic auto industry collapsing would far exceed the $25 billion loan needed to bridge the current crisis. According to a recent study by the Center for Automotive Research:

    • One in 10 American jobs depends on U.S. automakers
    • Nearly 3 million jobs are at immediate risk
    • U.S. personal income could be reduced by $150 billion
    • The tax revenue lost over 3 years would be more than $156 billion

    Discussions are now underway in Washington, D.C., concerning loans to support U.S. carmakers. I am asking for your support in this vital effort by contacting your state representatives.

    Please take a few minutes to go to, where we have made it easy for you to contact your U.S. senators and representatives. Just click on the "I'm a Concerned American" link under the "Mobilize Now" section, and enter your name and ZIP code to send a personalized e-mail stating your support for the U.S. automotive industry.

    Let me assure you that General Motors has made dramatic improvements over the last 10 years. In fact, we are leading the industry with award-winning vehicles like the Chevrolet Malibu, Cadillac CTS, Buick Enclave, Pontiac G8, GMC Acadia, Chevy Tahoe Hybrid, Saturn AURA and more. We offer 18 models with an EPA estimated 30 MPG highway or better — more than Toyota or Honda. GM has 6 hybrids in market and 3 more by mid-2009. GM has closed the quality gap with the imports, and today we are putting our best quality vehicles on the road.

    Please share this information with friends and family using the link on the site.

    Thank you for helping keep our economy viable.
