I know, but it seems like we have to continually do that for the folks on the right, because they just can't seem to reason it out for themselves. No need to be embarrassed, we'll keep explaining things to you as we go along.

The Romney statement though, saying essentially what the President said ... is golden! Thanks to the OP for posting it. Here we see once again, how so very similar the two candidates are on many of the issues. Mr. Obama, however seems the more honest of the two.

Thanks.
You have no problem at all embarassing yourself so you can defend stupidity. Romney isnt saying anything close to the same thing Obama said..

Then why are you asking people to explain the difference?

There is no difference, which is exactly what I said. They said essentially the same thing. Try to keep up.

Romney is QUOTING Obama, that, so of course they'd be saying the same thing, then he calls into question the accuracy of the statement. Dont you know what a quote is?

I see you're still sticking to the story that Obama said "you didn't do that" relating to creating a business.

Did you watch the two video clips of what Obama said that I posted?

So Obama didnt say it? Then why do we have video clips of him doing it? Is that an actor? He's very convincing.. Maybe its a SNL skit?

Yeah, I watched the videos, and clearly comprehended them better than you left wing kooks because Romney is QUOTING Obama.. Of course its the same statement because thats what a dam quote is.

Obama did NOT say you didn't build your own business, so I laugh at the notion that you comprehend anything better than me. He said you didn't build the roads etc outside your business.

So no, Romney is not quoting Obama. He's saying the same thing that Obama said. The only thing Romney did was lead into his statement by LYING about what Obama said.

Here's what Romney did:

Obama says X
Romney says "Obama said Y"
Romney then says X

Do I need to post the transcripts too to further illustrate the POS that Romney is?

...so the obvious solution is to make government less powerful, less able to bestow waivers from the laws, and wipe out the crap in the tax code so that favors are not for sale. Then corporations could not benefit as much by buying politicians.

Of course, Obama loves the power of waivers from the laws and junk in the tax code--and runs away from the sensible, bipartisan Simpson Bowles-style tax reform. Both parties have been guilty of brandishing government power on behalf of corporations (Dodd and Frank's romance with Fannie Mae, for example) but if government power is reduced, the opportunity for corruption is reduced.

I just had a mental image of a red strobe light, like those on the old fashioned police cars, sitting on top of Ed's monitor, and a computer voice blaring "Deflect! Deflect! Deflect!" haha
