Obama's 'You Didn't Build That' Was Off Teleprompter
July 27, 2012
I really hate to break it to Chris Matthews, especially regarding his latest puzzling ‘bromantic’ remark about Mr. Obama being “perfect” in every way, but perfect isn’t exactly how most of us describe the President.
Despite what Chis Matthews might actually believe, many of us dislike Mr. Obama not because we’re racists, it’s just…well…he stinks at his job.
Maybe Chris is off his meds, because those of us who live on planet earth, with a clear grip on reality know that this President isn’t even close to perfect.
Take Mr. Obama’s latest blunder for example.
Some really, really smart person on Mr. Obama’s staff decided to show the President on the campaign trail as being spontaneous and “in touch” with the peeps. He was “in touch” alright. He was in touch with his inner Zen – the “greater truth” of who Obama really is and that’s the fact that he’s a dyed-in-the-wool socialist. A true believer in government control of every single aspect of your life. It startles me when I hear a so-called “liberated” woman rant about the government staying out of her “private parts” (I’m cleaning up the language here). They don’t get it. The government is very much in there already – the additional problem is, this administration is screwing us all.
As it turns out, Mr. Obama must have been all on board with this spontaneous circus act, and thus we now have the classic, “You didn’t build that” speech.
To refresh our memories, he was speaking about people who built businesses. He was referring to what he (apparently) honestly believes is the inability for Americans to do anything unless the big daddy government holds our hand and helps. And come to find out, he gave us this big “reveal” off the teleprompter! Imagine that! Who knew?
Playing devil’s advocate, we’ll examine his point about being unable to get to that business-you-didn’t-build, because you needed to drive on roads built and maintained by—well the government.
Let’s apply your logic Mr. Obama by taking a trip on the Logic Train. As we chug, chug, chugga along, going down the logic track, what we come up with is something like this.
If it is that the government, and not personal drive, perseverance, personal sweat equity and personal risk (among other individual attributes) is what builds businesses, why isn’t everyone who travels those same government built roads (for example) president of their own business?
If it’s that simple, if it really does take a village and that’s your final answer, then there should be little to no unemployed and everyone should be king of their own successful business! Choo choo!
Oops, I’m sorry, the train is derailed Mr. Obama. That logic track of yours is broken!
Let us all be reminded of what Mr. Obama really believes. He believes you, the American voter, are…well in a word, estupido. For those of you who want this in English, press one…
We’ll quote Mr. Obama:
If you’ve been successful, 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.
WTF? You remember that campaign slogan of Mr. Obama’s “Winning The Future” don’t you? I ask you, is this “Winning The Future” for America? Telling us we can’t make it as a country without “smart” government intervention in businesses across our fruited plain? Is he truly that clueless that he honestly believes it’s the government that this country was built on and not the entrepreneur and small businessperson who creates and has created jobs in America?
He says more very interesting things:
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.
Dang, and all along I thought Al Gore invented the internet…
While talking to the National Urban League, Mr. Obama went off script again and began using an affected speech pattern he jumps into when he’s around African Americans. He thinks we believe he actually talks like this normally. He doesn’t.
You're competing against young people in Beijing and Bangalore…You know, they're not hangin' out. They're not gettin' over. They're not playin' video games. They're not watching 'Real Housewives.'
That wasn't in my prepared remarks…
Gee, ya think? I doubt even your brilliant speech writing crew would put “gettin’” and “playin’” on the teleprompter were your remarks not off the cuff. I’ve seen countless interviews and speeches where you don’t sound like you’re “in the hood” at all Mr. Obama. Actually, most of the time, you speak formal English like the alleged Harvard graduate you claim to be.
He’s not one of you, he’s not one of “us.” He’s an illusion created by fat-cat socialist/liberal politicians and his time in the White House never should have happened in the first place. This has nothing to do with his race. It has to do with the fact he is completely and utterly unqualified for the job. The proof is how he has tried to run this country since taking office. The only way he’s run things is right into the ground.
Are we really better off than we were when he took office in 2008? He’s proven he’s unskilled, incapable and unable to work hard at leading this country back to prosperity. What was purported to be his number one reason for wanting to become President while he was stumping for the job in the first place.
Put Mr. Obama to a simple test. What is the most important issue facing this nation?
Nope, not global warming. It’s joblessness and unemployment, and how our nation’s economy is stagnating under a huge Obama/Democrat-built deficit.
Yet explain to me, if Mr. Obama is so hard at work on this issue, why hasn’t he met with his own, Obama-created, bi-partisan Job’s Council since January?
That revelation alone should be the reason you vote this man out of office November 2012, never mind his numerous revelatory bloopers.
Prove Mr. Obama wrong, prove it to yourself and the future of our country that you’re not as stupid as team Obama believes you are. Vote smart November 2012, vote NO for a second term for Barrack Hussein Obama.
