Ha Ha Ha: Obama Has No Patience for ‘You Didn’t Build That’ Attacks

Posted by on Jul 25, 2012 at 8:35 am

He ought to listen to himself sometime.

President Barack Obama said Tuesday that he’s losing his patience over the Republican attacks aimed at his “you didn’t build that” comment.

“I have to tell you, I generally have patience with what the other side says about me, that’s a requirement of this job,” Obama said during a $5,000-per-plate fundraiser here, according to the pool report.

And if you don’t like folks talking about you, you probably shouldn’t run for president. The one thing I do have no patience for is this argument that somehow what I’m criticizing is success… I want to promote success,” Obama said.

I agree. He probably shouldn’t run for president.

    The Beater of Strawmen strikes again. No one says he ‘criticized’ success. He’s not that daft. He denigrated success. We all know it and so does he.

    He’s out of patience? Well, join the club. I’m tired of waiting for this sorry act to close up and leave town.

    “I generally have patience with what the other side says about me”

    Because he loves – craves – for the subject to be . . him.

    And when the subject is him, yes he’s patient.

    Except of course when it’s not–then he’s not.

    Does Obama think that his disapproval of these attacks will serve to diminish them? Who does he think he is, David Palmer?

    “Let me be perfectly clear…”

    What are we supposed to believe, what Mr. Obama says or our lying eyes and brains.

    I mean, he only prefaced his comments with:

    “They know they didn’t — look, 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.”


    So clearly, the term “that” refers to the phrase “Somebody invested in roads and bridges.” Because that makes grammatical sense… oh wait, it doesn’t. Charitably, I guess, it could refer to the two sentences before “that” – “Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive.”

    Of course, if Mr. Obama was talking abotu Government spending and interference, that isn’t the “American system” that “allows” anyone “to thrive. ” Lot’s of places have roads and intrusive governments.

    But the plainest reading is exactly what Mr. Obama is saying he didn’t say, that “that” refers to “business,” and that, at best, he forgot the word “alone.” (“You didn’t build that alone!”) Because here’s his statement:

    “If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.” It didn’t happen because you worked smarter or harder. It didn’t happen because of that combined with the grace of G-d. No, according to Mr. Obama, when he’s not baldly lying to cover up his ingrained collectivist beliefs, you succeed only because of the grace of government. Right…

    Vote this brazen lawless liar out.

    In 2008, 47% of the voting public saw through the Obama charade before he even had a national track record. We can only hope and pray that Obama, himself, is consistently convincing at least 4% of those who voted for him in 2008 to vote against him in this election cycle.

    Obama has foretold what we will all see once the campaign season tilts into full gear. “Losing patience” already? Romney smells blood, and your reaction to his attack will prompt more of the same. It will be neat to watch him “lose it” during the debates!

  7. Simmer on 25/25/12 at 9:51 am

    If we want to promote success, stop giving money to companies run by campaign bundlers, bailing out failure and talking about upping the tax rate those that have found a way to thrive in your horrible economy.

  8. Blue Hen on 25/25/12 at 9:55 am

    he’s not controlling the narrative completely anymore. And it bothers him and his cronies. He never had that problem at all in Chicago. and he had a nubmer of factors working for him in 2008. Now, not so much. A Good deal of it is still there (ABC: tea party is to blame for every mass murder that occurs), but not nearly as much.

  9. JHernan on 25/25/12 at 10:09 am

    He’e been “running for president” for going on 5 years now. Too bad he’s never acted like one.

  10. Mac on 25/25/12 at 10:11 am

    This individual is the worst person ever to be president of this country. Everyone who voted for him should be deeply ashamed of having done so. He hates this country and its white majority (as does his political party), he wouldn’t know the truth if it walked up to him and slapped him in the face (like most others in his political party), and he, with the help of a horribly spendthrift Senate, is trying to spend the country into bankruptcy.

    He’s got to go. America cannot afford another four years of his insane spending and efforts to destroy the country. I would crawl naked over broken glass to cast my ballot against this candidate in November. I pray that enough others feel similarly that we can see the back of him in January.

    Even if we do, we’ll be decades undoing the damage he’s done. He intended to hurt the country and he’s done quite well at doing so.

    Why is Obama singling out Republicans? They didn’t build that criticism by themselves. They had a road leading to their office built by the government. They had a teacher who helped them spot nonsense. We don’t do anything alone. None of this would have happenned without the government, ie Obama, starting it.

  12. Laka on 25/25/12 at 11:16 am

    Remember how Romney’s “I like to be able to fire people” comment was repeated endlessly by the left. I don’t remember the President being irritated by that at all.

    Romney’s offhand comment was about being stuck with one insurance company and having no recourse anywhere else because you could never “fire” a single-payor insurer. Obama’s comment was scripted, planned, telepromptered and totally in line with his belief that all good begins with government.

    People are just going to have to decide for themselves which of these comments is repellent and which is common sense.

    Once again, Obama talks down to the American people. This Mussolini for Morons thinks he’s entitled to issue decrees on what his opponents can say, as on everything else.

    But he’s right about one thing: the point of his “you didn’t build that” homily is often neglected. And that point was, “You owe us. You owe the government as much money as we want, for whatever purpose we want it for, because we built the roads.”

    It’s just another stupid, overbearing, manipulative Obama trope, like all the other malicious manipulative tropes that make up his teeny-tiny president’s administration.

    Hehe, this guy is just not too smart is he? Or, he can’t hear his actual words as he speaks them.Or, the memory chip in his head is stuck on loop mode.

  15. Ann in L.A. on 25/25/12 at 11:32 am

    Keep in mind, that this is pretty much exactly what he told Joe the Plumber back during the last campaign–other people are smart too, but aren’t making as much, and we have to “spread the wealth around.”

  16. JorgXMcKie on 25/25/12 at 12:08 pm

    He’s not attacking success, he’s merely pointing out that all the success belongs to the govt. And that’s all that is needed. For the life of me though, I don’t see why all those unemployed and underemployed people out there don’t just open a govt-provided successful business and begin raking in the easy profits.

    I mean, it would seem the easy answer to the economy would be for every US resident above the age of 16 to just open up a successful business nest to a govt road or bridge. Easy-peasy the Pres says. So easy a caveman could do it.

    High self-esteem, affirmative action males of single welfare moms are notoriously thin skinned. Prisons are full of them.

  18. Timbo on 25/25/12 at 12:53 pm

    I fear that Romney will win the popular vote but not enough swing states, and that the electoral college gives victory to Obama.

  19. Amos on 25/25/12 at 1:29 pm

    He wants to promote the success of the State. Not the Nation, or its people.

    Whenever you hear a progressive say something that sounds remotely reasonable, always check the words for what’s missing. It’s no accident that the key part is often omitted.

  20. Nate Whilk on 25/25/12 at 2:34 pm

    ‘ “…I want to promote success,” Obama said.’

    HE wants the credit for everybody’s success. Egomaniacal jackass.
