Personally, I cannot really remember any memorable lines from Clinton (96)
How 'bout; "...I did not have sex with that woman." And; "... it all depends on what your definition of 'Is', is."

Clinton was well known to bend the truth to suit his needs of the moment.

This distortion of Obama's comment "You didn't build that" (minus the supporting statements) feeds directly into the pompous pride and self righteous attitude of the GOP. Yup, they did it all by theselves, in a vacuum. Never mind the most important component in building a successful business......customers. Without them, you've built an empty shell.

Customers come AFTER the business is built. Who buys something that doesn't exist yet ?
Building a business is a risk because you don't have customers yet.

Customers and demand keeps a business going after it's built.

And his morons are making it worse by telling us we misunderstood, took it out of context, and should watch the entire video.

Well, dumbbots.....we did. We know what he said. Obviously, it's YOU who has a comprehension problem.

Newsflash: I built my business because I was smart and worked hard. Deal with it!

Independents bailed on Obama in 2010, and he's given them ZERO reasons to come back.

They're not stupid.

I have noticed a pattern to the way this man thinks. He is the typical abusive speaker. He and his kind want you to worship him and think of yourself as nothing. I find the "you didn't build it" as being demeaning and abusive to hard-working people.

Then he does not pay any attention to Navy seals! He would be lucky to see the day he is half as good as the lowest person in the military.

I sent an e-mail reminding him of his oath to obey all the laws of the United States even concerning immigrants. He sent me back an e-mail belittling what I had said. I have an interesting prospective according to him. Makes you wonder what part of illegal he does not understand. Our laws are on the books and whether he likes it or not, it is his DUTY to uphold the law. He swore an oath to uphold all the laws, not just the ones he likes. What if we lived like that on a daily basis. How many of us like all the laws? Whether we like them or not, we have to obey them or face the consequences.

It is sad people voted for someone that does not even understand what it means to be an American.

Can you fill us in on the evidence that brings you to your conclusion and not just give us the conclusion? Because all I read here is an incoherent rant.

Its worse when you listen to the whole thing. We did build that and since Obama can't build anything he wants to put his hands deeper in our pockets.

What a loser, for the losers.

They certainly deserve each others----losers embracing losers.

May they live happily ever after.
