The President distorts his own statement

Pres. Obama’s reply to GOP criticism of his statement that business owners don’t build their businesses on their own, doesn’t make sense, we believe.

The President said he was only referring to infrastructure. He tried to explain, “What I said was together we build roads and we build bridges.” He added: “That’s the point I’ve made millions of times, and by the way, that’s a point Mr. Romney has made as well, so this is just a bogus issue.” He was speaking to WCTV-TV in Tallahassee, Florida, which aired the interview yesterday.

Mr. Obama referred to roads and bridges in his original comment (See our July 17th post.) but did not adequately attach it to the “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that” or the “If you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own” parts of his statement, in our opinion.

That’s why we believe his attempt to push back on the Republicans does not reflect what he originally said.
