Ah, the desperate search for a singular antecedent other than "business"!
"... 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. "
Let's go with your interpretation. You are saying that, if someone has a business, he or she didn't build "that" ("... unbelievable American system").
Well, who DOES get the credit? Who is this mysterious "somebody else" the President mentions? Why are business owners excluded? Business owners didn't pay taxes that were then used to "invest in roads and brides"? Business owners didn't pay taxes that helped to build the Hoover Dam and the Golden Gate Bridge? Business owners didn't pay taxes to help create "this unbelievable American system"?
Listen to President Obama's speech. The delivery makes it clear he was talking about "business" when he used the pronoun "that". He actually uses "that" twice, once immediately after "If you've got a business", then there's a short pause, and then he says "You didn't build that".
"If you’ve got a business, that (pause) you didn’t build that."
Nice try, though.
You're full of it--but then almost all the Grumpy Old Pricks are...who built "that"? Why the American people built the American system that allows for the Gates, Jobs, and even the R'Moneys of the society...nice attempt at deflection, though.

So who funds FOX? A left wing commie? Who has never professed to wanting to bring his conservative agenda to the forefront by using a media outlet?
The funny thing here is that MM will tell you it's partisan. FOX evidently wants everyone to believe it is so it can claim that it's opinion shows are real news.
And you can't see why FOX hates MM? Paranoia indeed.
You are proving how truly dumb you are this morning.

FNC is owned by News Corp which is a public stock.

Now that was dumb. The collective "we" meaning government? Nope, "we" as individuals built America.

WH meet lobbyist regularly at coffee house across from the WH to avoid disclosure -

"The off-site meetings, lobbyists say, reveal a disconnect between the Obama administration’s public rhetoric — with Mr. Obama himself frequently thrashing big industries’“battalions” of lobbyists as enemies of reform — and the administration’s continuing, private dealings with them."

And if Israel attacks Iran & starts a war, Romney just dragged us into it. Romney effetively put our military into Israel's hands.
As usual, you're grasping at dung on the heels of bootlickers Duh A Vey--

“I would start by joining President Obama in condemning yesterday’s terrorist bomb attack in Jerusalem as well as the rockets and mortars fired into Israel from Gaza in recent days and even today,” Mr. Gates said at a news conference at the Israeli Defense Ministry.“We underscore that Israel, like all nations, has the right to self-defense and to bring justice to the perpetrators of these repugnant acts.”...

At least 10 rockets and mortar shells fired by Gaza militants slammed into southern Israel on Thursday. One struck the industrial zone of Ashdod, which is about 20 miles north of Gaza, and another hit the Israeli border town of Sderot. There were no reports of injuries, partly because Israelis in the south are used to running for cover as soon as they hear a rocket alert.

The bombing near the Jerusalem bus station on Wednesday has added to the Israelis’ sense of being under attack.

Has anything changed since then?? Or is it somehow "different" now, because of partisianisTic labels?

Okay, here's my profound thought of the day.
If we insist on being entertained by the degree of senseless and sometimes cruel violence Hollyweird can think up and dish out, why are we so shocked when senseless violence becomes a reality?
Now for those of you who, I know, will take this observation and run off the cliff making wild accusations, I am fully aware that violence has been around since people have walked the earth.
But it seems to me we've taken violence and glorified it to a whole new level.
Maybe it's me. But the old adage, "garbage in, garbage out" has a lot of truth to it. Our young people, especially, are being fed too much garbage just so producers, directors and actors in Hollyweird can buy more tinsel to further obstruct their vision and judgment at the expense of desensitizing our children's overall sense of well-being.
It would be hard to argue this isn't true at least to some extent and, perhaps, even to a large extent.
Are you in favor of censorship? Who decides what is permissable?

now businesses succeed despite the government with it's bureacracies and over-regulations and taxation, etc.

i.e. imagine if the 1099 rule for every transaction over $600 hadn't been removed from ObamaCare after it was passed! that was just one small example of government inflicting pain on job creators.

Gore Vidal died; this from an article on him:

"Lincoln" stands as his most notable work of historical fiction, vetted and admired by a leading Lincoln biographer, David Herbert Donald, and even cited by the conservative Newt Gingrich as a favorite book. Gingrich's praise was contrasted by fellow conservative Rep. Michele Bachmann, who alleged she was so put off by Vidal's "Burr" that she switched party affiliation from Democrat to Republican.

Did you know Bachman was a Democrat before? Surprised.
