Obama Claims He Didn’t Say “You Didn’t Build That,” So Why Is It Still on WH Website?

Posted by on Jul 25, 2012 at 8:07 am

A nice point made by Conn Carroll this morning. As Obama flails wildly trying to claim he didn’t say what the entire planet knows he said, he’s apparently unaware his own press office website still has the remarks in their entirety.


“If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.” – President Obama, July 13, 2012, Roanoke, Virginia.

The above quote is 100 percent accurate. You can even go to the White House’s own website, click on Remarks by the President at a Campaign Event in Roanoke, Virginia, and it will appear, clear as day in black and white.

And that fact is a mortal threat to Obama’s reelection effort.

Eventually they’ll memory hole it, so here’s a relevant snippet. Click to enlarge.

    He just forgot the actual quote he was thinking of…

    “Society does not consist of individuals, but expresses the sum of interrelations, the relations within which these individuals stand.”
    ― Karl Marx, Grundrisse: Foundations of the Critique of Political Economy

    I can’t understand how anyone can deliberately claim that Obama was actually claiming those who create businesses didn’t build those exact same businesses.

    How is that common sense? How can anyone simply ignore the entire portion of his speech in which a selected partial quote was taken out and presented as a standalone statement?

    As the speech also said: “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.”
