Do you think Minnie Mouse is getting jealous? Once again the news arm of Disney, ABC News is proving that Mickey’s loyalties are not with Minnie, the truth, or their viewers, but rest firmly with Barack Obama.
Today this Mickey Mouse operation ran a story about Obama’s retaliation against the “you didn’t build it” comments. Obama’s claim was that the remarks were taken out of context. ABC News agreed,
Republicans have seized on the line “you didn’t build that” to falsely claim that Obama was speaking directly to business owners about their businesses.
Falsely claim? Who else was he talking to Ghosts? Lawn Gnomes? Goofy?
Here’s what Obama said:
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.
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 you’ve got a
business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.
Someone please tell me what context he meant, because it seems to me he was saying you’re average and if you started a successful business its because they government laid the infrastructure. Truth is, if it wasn’t for the success of small business, there would be no need or tax dollars available for building infrastructure. really want to talk about taking statements out of context perhaps they should look at some of these article based on taking Romney’s “I like to fire people”
If ABC News really wants to discuss comments out of context, perhaps they should look no further than their out of context reaction to Romney’s “I like to fire people” statement made in January.
- Romney Likes ‘Being Able to Fire People’
- Mitt Romney vs. Gordon Gekko
- Would Romney Cut Firefighters?
There is a bright side though. At least ABC didn’t falsely blame the Tea Party as they did with the tragedy in the Colorado movie theater last week.
