    This is what Obama said:

    “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… 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.”

    What everyone at the convention and many here (Bob) like to do is take the words out of context. ” you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that”

    Then you wonder why people don’t know who to believe on either side. Words can be twisted so easily. Its the same with the $716B dollars supposedly stolen from Medicare patients.

    The other side does the same thing, i.e the guy who blamed Romney for his wife dieing from cancer.

      Why in the world would someone want to try to water down the success of someone by saying something like this? Seriously, Bob, it’s offensive even when taken in its full context.

    This came out this morning. Very much what I was talking about yesterday. Being raised in a home where truth and honesty matters, I find this offensive, especially considering this is for the office of President. I think there are many more like me who are tired of this.

    Also, how is “The point is, is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative but also because we do things together.” offensive? Bet you made a heck of a soccer coach 🙂

      Imagine this:

      It’s the last game in the pee wee regional soccer tournament and Coach Quiner gives his team their final pre-game pep talk:

      “Timmy, you ARE our star player. Heck, let’s face it, you built this team. The rest of you, well, try to stay out of Timmy’s way. Better yet, the whole lot of you stay on the bench.”

    Obama’s words are not at all taken out of context. The more you read, the more disturbing it gets. The endeavors to paint it as cherry-picking are perfect example of the alternate universe inhabited by the left, where wrong is right. And really, they’re also nothing more than the usual tired effort to paint their guy as the messiah. For all the humor provided regularly by the human gaffe machine passed off as his VP, it’s no different with the teleprompter-in-chief; the more he runs his mouth, the deeper he steps in it. And what’s largely ignored but quite scary to ponder, is that Biden is actually more qualified to be president.

      There’s a lot packed into your paragraph. Karen and I went to 2016 last night. There is a very uncomfortable scene where Mr. Obama doesn’t have a teleprompter and he is unable to complete a sentence about critical public policy. Thanks for writing.
