Read Obama's speech.
Exactly, where Obama's "You didn't build this" statement can be read in context:

http://factcheck.org/2012/07/you-didnt-build-...

Obama made his remarks at a July 13 campaign appearance in Virginia. The president was speaking against Romneyís proposal to retain the Bush-era tax cuts and cut federal tax rates an additional 20 percent across the board for all taxpayers.
Hereís what he said:
Obama, July 13: There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me ó because they want to give something back. They know they didnít ó look, if youíve been successful, you didnít get there on your own. You didnít get there on your own. Iím 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 ó 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 youíve got a business ó you didnít build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didnít 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 donít do on our own. I mean, imagine if everybody had their own fire service. That would be a hard way to organize fighting fires. So we say to ourselves, ever since the founding of this country, you know what, there are some things we do better together. Thatís how we funded the GI Bill. Thatís how we created the middle class. Thatís how we built the Golden Gate Bridge or the Hoover Dam. Thatís how we invented the Internet. Thatís how we sent a man to the moon. We rise or fall together as one nation and as one people, and thatís the reason Iím running for President ó because I still believe in that idea. Youíre not on your own, weíre in this together.

I saw the entire speech on CSPAN and was appalled, thanks for posting this Will Dockery. Hopefully many will read this and see what we elected and not make the same mistake twice.
Mt dad is a lifelong democrat and a partner in a local business. He will vote for the first Republican ever in this upcoming election.

Not at all.

I'm voting for Gary Johnson this year as everyone with reading comprehension knows, so I reckon that makes me a "Libertarian" this year, which is fine because I'm sick and tired of /both/ Democrat and Republican at this point.

Glad to clear up your confusion here on this, "Hank".

Obama is going to need your vote. Don't jump ship.
You ride it all the way down to the bottom with your Captain Disaster Obama, no lifeboats on the SS Democrat party.

Yeah Will.
Ride that chapped butt, fence ridin' 100 pound Q-Tip head all the way to the bottom where you deserve to be and cry, cry, cry.
You can even write a song about how ridin' fences was a bad way to go.

Your reading comprehension problem is noted again, "Hank", since I've repeatedly made my position on the 2012 election lear for months.

I don't trust either Republicans or Democrats, and an voting third party, for Gary Johnson, this year.

Y'all sheep can have your Romney & Obama.

'Nuff said.

According to the most recent polls Obama is ahead of Romney... or do you have a link to some I haven't seen, "Lick"?

I agree with your dad on this, Lorri, and I've voted Democrat since Jimmy Carter.

Rather than going Republican (who I trust less than even Obama) I've chosen to support the growing third party this year and vote for Gary Johnson.

Ride that fence lib.
You know what a vote for Johnson is.
Excellent fence riding rhetoric.
It's like building an alibi.
Ride!

Obviously it is a vote for "none of the above", since I'm not thrilled by either Romney or Obama, and don't trust either of the two main parties.

Plus Gary Johnson has some cool ideas on legalizing weed... heh.

Not that I'd smoke any, mind you.

At first I was voting against Obama, now I am really liking what Romney and team are saying. Can they pull it off? I sure hope so!

Does look like Romney's picking up steam since he added Ryan to the ticket yesterday.

Glad to see you on Topix again Lorri, hope you are doing good. None of you guys get on here much anymore. I was planning on coming down for a weekend if you and Jeff and anyone else want to go out with us.
Does Columbus have any kind of Octoberfest celebrations or anything like that?

You are right about Obama, I don't know anyone who is voting for him. I think it goes beyond being a Dem or Rep, he is just a really bad President, probably the worst in recent times.
