Somebody has already put the comment on T-shirts. I saw a guy that had one on saying "I didn't build it" and then the back had something I couldn't quite make out. It was obviously a slam to Obama. Obama's comment was one stupid comment and may cost him the election.

Exactly. Obama and his minions know how bad the comment is, and they haven't come up with an effective response yet. That's because there isn't one.

People with IQs over 100 can listen to Oblama's anti-success diatribe and understand exactly what he means. That excludes 95% of Jon Stewart's audience.

As Stewert said,
Quote:
President Obama went on to say that “the point is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together.”

“Oh, that’s your point,” reacted Stewart. “Here’s a tip: when someone says, ‘the point is,’ the next thing they say usually nine times out of 10 is the point.
But we know you aren't interested in fair-play or the truth. You are only interested in perpetuating a fake controversy.

If he was referring to bridges and roads, the Harvard-educated Oblama would have sad "those" instead of "that."

Obviously you, Obama and Stewart never grasped 5th grade English grammar. Either that or you're only interested in perpetuating a false narrative.

Finally, after all the BS we've listened to since 2008, the man speaks from his heart in two instances and lets us know how he really thinks, sincerely and believably, and people jump all over him. /sarcasm

President Obama believes that success starts with government spending. This much is clear; put all the context into it that you want, and this is what you are left with. As a master of the straw man technique, he then pretends that his opponents object to having roads and bridges and public sanitation, or object to the need to pay for them.

His statements about the first massive stimulus do not line up well with the truth. Stuffing $27 billion of public money into the coffers of UAW benefit plans is not exactly building the Hoover Dam or the Golden Gate Bridge. Puffing up state government payrolls beyond the state's ability to sustain it is not exactly like putting a man on the moon. Pretending that increasing food stamps and unemployment comp will increase our wealth and prosperity is not exactly like funding important basic research.

This election is a referendum on whether the public economy ought to gain primacy over the private economy for the first time in America's unimaginable two-century journey to greater prosperity and wealth and increased well-being of the citizenry.

Unlike Mitt Romney, Obama is a tool. Government help is for the weak.

Funny that Obama, in trying to lie and spin his words, made himself look foolish and uneducated. Of course, we all already knew he isn't the brightest bulb. Remember him pronouncing corpsman as corPsman? Too funny!
