Not only does Obama say "You did not build that business.....
You start with a mis-quote taken out of context, and end in total confusion about what President Obama actually said. Boy, the rightwing propaganda pushers have a field day with your little brain, don't they!

Some excerpts from the FactCheck.org article - ‘You Didn’t Build That,’ Uncut and Unedited

"President Obama spoke of government — including government-funded education, infrastructure and research — assisting businesses to make what he called “this unbelievable American system that we have.”
In summary, he said: “The point is … that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together.”

In Context
Obama made his remarks at a July 13 campaign appearance in Virginia. The president was speaking against Romney’s proposal to retain the Bush-era tax cuts and cut federal tax rates an additional 20 percent across the board for all taxpayers.

Here’s what he said:
Obama, July 13: There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me — because they want to give something back. They know they didn’t — look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something — there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there. (Applause.)

If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.

The point is, is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together. There are some things, just like fighting fires, we don’t do on our own. I mean, imagine if everybody had their own fire service. That would be a hard way to organize fighting fires.

So we say to ourselves, ever since the founding of this country, you know what, there are some things we do better together. That’s how we funded the GI Bill. That’s how we created the middle class. That’s how we built the Golden Gate Bridge or the Hoover Dam. That’s how we invented the Internet. That’s how we sent a man to the moon. We rise or fall together as one nation and as one people, and that’s the reason I’m running for President — because I still believe in that idea. You’re not on your own, we’re in this together.​

Obama’s comments were not entirely new. The president frequently speaks about the role of government in a free-market society, as he did in his 2011 State of the Union address:
Obama, Jan. 25, 2011: Our free enterprise system is what drives innovation. But because it’s not always profitable for companies to invest in basic research, throughout our history, our government has provided cutting-edge scientists and inventors with the support that they need. That’s what planted the seeds for the Internet. That’s what helped make possible things like computer chips and GPS. Just think of all the good jobs — from manufacturing to retail — that have come from these breakthroughs.​

Certainly, Obama’s latest comments invite a debate not only over the role of government, but how much responsibility the private sector has to help fund it. That debate, however, can occur only when the president’s remarks are viewed in context.









....And, in talking about what a debacle the rise of the Nazis was to Germany, he never mentions the TrumpsterFire by name, but you are all absolutely sure he was comparing the current Liar-in-Chief to Hitler.......well, if the shoe fits!

Stupidity, ignorance and gullibility are the curse of the rightwingnuts....

Projection is the curse of the left....
Stupidity, ignorance and gullibility are the curse of the rightwingnuts....
We discussed this on another thread.....And if you are going to continue the insults and not add anything intelligent.....You can go fuck off too...
So you can dish it out but you whine like a little baby when it comes back to you. Typical rightwingnut wimp.

As far as "adding anything intelligent".......be sure to let us all know when you finally accomplish that, Gormless.

Of course, you are pretty clueless about what "anything intelligent" even means if you are blind to the factual info that I post all the time to debunk the lies and fraudulent myths of you rightwingnuts. Like in post #2.

All you had to do was click the link in the OP rather than read the bilge posted by Ahgoo. In fact, you could have thought for a moment or two before attacking the OP author and realized why would Obama be talking about Trump five years ago. But no, you didn't do that either. Be better than that, Clara.

We do not expect better from Obama though.

Bill Ozanick, in covering the speech for The Hill, wrote: “Comparing Trump to Hitler is not only inaccurate, ineffective, dishonest, and dangerous, it also trivializes the tragedy of the Holocaust in the name of scoring political points.”

He added, “Indeed, comparing Trump to Hitler says a lot more about the accuser than the accused.”

That's really, really stupid! Nobody thought President Obama was "talking about T'Rump five years ago", moron. The Gormless one who wrote the fraudulent OP brought that up - "Not only does Obama say "You did not build that business"..."

The "bilge" you try to demean is actually the factual evidence that debunks your rightwingnut myths about President Obama's speech five years ago.

We don't expect anything from you rightwingnuts but lies and stupidity....and you certainly haven't exceeded our expectations.
