If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that.
Haven't looked at conservapedia in quite a while.
On the current version of the homepage:
quote:
Liberal claptrap, in Barack Obama's own words: "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. ... If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen."
Their "bolding". Note the strategically placed ellipses.
But, amazingly enough, on the Barack Hussein Obama page:
quote:
"You didn't build that" Controversy
On July 13, 2012, at a campaign event in Virginia, Obama gave a speech that immediately stirred up controversy. Speaking about the Government's role in the success of private business, he said:[207]
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.
It is fairly clear that when Obama said "you didn't build that," he is referring to roads, bridges, and other infrastructure and technological advancements that government played a key role in funding and creating, though plenty of people may disagree over how much government is actually required for businesses to be successful. But many Obama opponents, including the Romney campaign, took that one sentence ("If you’ve got a business - you didn’t build that") out of context, making it seem like the President is not giving credit to business owners for having built their own businesses. Obama could have been more clear about what he was referring to, which is unusual because he is often praised for his public speeches. This could be a case of Obama speaking off-script, providing further evidence for his reliance on teleprompters.
Note the "It is fairly clear that when Obama said "you didn't build that," he is referring to roads, bridges, and other infrastructure and technological advancements that government played a key role in funding and creating, though plenty of people may disagree over how much government is actually required for businesses to be successful."
Oops, an inadvertent accuracy event.
"But many Obama opponents, including the Romney campaign, took that one sentence ("If you’ve got a business - you didn’t build that") out of context, making it seem like the President is not giving credit to business owners for having built their own businesses."
And including the Conservapedia home page.
