Obama: "I Didn't Say That! Someone Else Made That Happen!"



“Those ads taking my words about small business out of context — they’re flat-out wrong,” Obama says.

“Of course Americans build their own businesses. Every day, hardworking people sacrifice to meet a payroll, create jobs and make our economy run. And what I said was that we need to stand behind them, as America always has.”

Did they really just put that into a TV commercial? I mean Really????????????

It's his "malaise" speech. It's the phrase that's going to be carved on his tomb. "I am not a crook"... "all we have to fear..." "government IS the problem"... "You didn't build that!"

The first time I heard it I was too livid to write anything rational about it. It's breathtakingly insulting. And his denials don't help. It's Bart Simpson saying "I didn't do it", nothing more.

If he isn't just lying about what he meant to say (which I think is the most likely reality) then it's a faux pas of empire ending proportions. But it will give Democrats the thing they need to preserve their vision in the face of a loss. They will say that they were the right people at the right time but the evil Republicans lied to America about what Obama meant. They cant' possibly take responsibility for this if it's really just mis-spoken.

I agree - this was terrible planning to put it in their own ad - as if hearing him deny it will make it all better. Wow!

Unlike somebody who runs a business, Obama believes he can escape responsibility for his mistake by blaming somebody else for what he did. "You didn't build that" demeaned a lot of people who can never ever escape from a mistake by saying "Somebody made that happen." Blaming Romney for what he said shows nothing but raw elitism.

He has never had to apologize for anything in his life..He has never had his ass kicked in a fight .. He is "elite".He is the chosen one.,.
I men my freakin lord---the man was handed a Nobel peace prize before anyone knew how to spell his name??? For what??? Because a bunch of old snoots in northern Europe could be socially correct????

We have gone from the greatest generation to "take care of me" generation. And he is their man.Jesus

A while back in a separate comments section I said that Obama wouldn't be able to hide this time and it was just a matter of time before his contempt for America came out.

It's out.

I do like that Mitt called his bluff and posted the whole speech "in context", on his website as it gets worse every watching. Coupled with yesterday's phrasing that not raising taxes = a government "giveaway" and perhaps the scales are starting to fall from the eyes of the productive class. I don't smell the veal yet, but the butcher is starting to wrap it...

As much as he much want to be, Barak Obama is no Huey Long

When he was preaching that shit to his crowd it reminded me of James Brown preaching in the Blues Bros....."Do you see the light"? "Do you see the light?"
He needs to channel Jim Jones and pass out the koolaid.

Take a look at a Huey Long speech and the arm movements.

I wonder how it sounds translated into German.

I have a lot of liberal German friends, and on the heels of today's news, I really did laugh out loud at that , Tom.

Tom said...

Well there are some names you can't just mention in a political discussions without being told that you're no longer being serious. But it's the first thing I thought of.

Obama continued: "But I also believe that a lot of gun owners would agree that AK-47s belong in the hands of soldiers, not in the hands of criminals. That they belong on the battlefield of war, not on the streets of our cities. I believe the majority of gun owners would agree we should do everything possible to prevent criminals and fugitives from purchasing weapons, and we should check someone's criminal record before they can check out a gun seller."

The president called for new restrictions barring mentally unstable people from purchasing weapons.
Mentally unstable..???? there goes dam near everyone I know.
