Washington Examiner -- Last night at the Fox Theater in Oakland, Calif., President Obama complained that Mitt Romney took his controversial comments about business out of context.
“Frankly, the other side can’t sell their ideas so what they’re going to do is distort my vision. Earlier today, Gov. Romney was at it again,” Obama said, according to the pool report. “Knowingly twisting my words to suggest I don’t value small business.” [...]
Obama was referring to his comment that, “If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that.” Defenders of the president insist that he was talking about roads and bridges, not businesses.
Blog author's comments - Obama owns those words. No one is twisting anything. Just repeating exactly what he said. “You didn’t build that” is another glimpse into who he is.
He is now desperate to walk his comments back, yet not upset his leftist base. There appears to be a resentment from Obama towards those who have achieved and been successful without help from the government.
Obama seems to think that whatever he says at any given moment is true, regardless of actual facts or anything he said previously. I hope voters can see that so he and his family will no longer be living in the White House after the November election.
Governor Romney: "The context is worse than the quote"
