Romney's Presidential Campaign.

Updated on July 4, 2016

The two most remembered moments of the 2012 presidential campaign

It is curious that the two most remembered or outstanding moments of the 2012 presidential campaign are one that exemplifies a negative quality for the winner of the Republican nomination, Mitt Romney and an almost heroic and positive quality for the candidate that lost,John Mc Cain.The forty-seven percent for Romney,and the taking the microphone away from the woman accusing Obama of being a Muslim for Mc Cain.

If you've got a business--you didn't build that!

President Obama stated in a speech that, and I quote :Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business -- you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen. It is clear what he said here is that if you have a business and you make use of the roads and bridges you are benefiting from that infrastructure which you didn't build, what he is saying you didn't build is that infrastructure not your business he is not saying that you didn't build your business he is saying you did not build that road and that bridge.I'm sure Hannity, Limbaugh, the fox news crowd , and the bunch of corrupt republican operatives that are misrepresenting what the president really said know this , but think most people are too stupid to decipher their little word game.Are you ?

And then they go on to agree that everything he said is correct.

And after they trash him ,by taking out of context and misrepresenting what he said they all go on to express the same things he is saying in the speech, but thay say that what he is saying is so evident it doesn't make sense to say it,I think this republican presidential campaign may go down in history as a model of an incompetent campaign, it seems they can't get out of their own way,they're going to give poor Karl Rove an ulcer.

He had to defend Obama ,his adversary, from the crazies in his own party

A man of honor, not too many left in the republican party.

Senator John Mc Cain has an impressive life story,and is a true american hero,as well as a man who has devoted his life to serve his country.History will one day talk about his legacy,and many a street around the country will be named after him.I have more disagreements than what I agree on with senator Mc Cain, but I recognize that if we had more politicians like him the country would be in much better shape, no matter which party was in power,because the good of the country would be put ahead of defeating the political adversary.Him ,taking away the microphone from the woman that is saying Obama is an Arab,which should be translated as an enemy of america in the language of the tea party and the right wing extremists will go down in history as one of the most honorable gestures ever made by a political candidate for the presidency.Compare that posture to that of current republican presidential candidate Lame Romney who says nothing when a woman asking him a question says the president should be tried for treason.That is the state of the republican party today,ruled by crazy birthers,extreme right wingers,and a group of talking heads that are shrinking the once big tent party as they grow their audience and their bank accounts.

      you are correct but unfortunately even though they know exactly what the president was saying and what he meant the republican attack machine continues to use this soundbite which makes the president sound bad , that is not their fault they will do that, the obama campaign should be more careful not to give this lame romney ryan run for the white house verbal ammunition to make a mediocre candidate sound better than he really is.

      The sound bites don't do our society any favors, it just continues to allow people to be naive and believe what they want to believe...the truth apparently is irrelevant.

      If people would just look into things, instead of lapping up whatever they are told, our society would be in a much better place.

      Voted up.

      Good Hub, thanks for leaving the link on my page :). I think you should seperate the stuff about Senator McCain iton its own Hub and add a little more information. I agree that he is a good, honorable man.

      We all benefit from living in the greatest economy the world has ever known,but like the right wing nut talking heads like to point out we can persue happiness but there's no guarantee we will achieve it.

      It's fun to watch political common-taters speak about what politicians say. Ah well, as long as he doesn't speak of his record, he's doing good.

      it is very frustrating to hear people that know better changing the meaning of a simple statement by the president.

      Government didn't build ME those roads and bridges! American inovation created an economy that forced them, and PAID for those roads and bridges. I owned a business for 18 years, government didn't do anything but HINDER me in those 18 years of sacrifice!

      I think the point, ib radmasters, was to clear up this misconception and deception over what the President said. Did you read the Hub?

      It's a shame that some people seek to draw the ignorant to their side with misinformation. Though I'd recommend a bit of proofreading, this Hub is correct in its message.

      I'm afraid this small snippet of the entire quote is making the rounds online and in people's imaginations. It's completely biased and out of context.

      The entire quote was:

      "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."

      PS: You spelled "illiterate" wrong.

      Sorry, but I didn't understand this hub, or its point.
