New Romney Ad Bashes Obama On “You Didn’t Build It”


This is one that should be on TV from now till election day…..that is, until (NMP) Obama says something else off script that exposes exactly who he is (via Instapundit)

James Taranto explains Obama’s resentment in an article worth the read, and also notes

Meanwhile, @BarackObama tweets a quote attributed to somebody identified only as “Jacob, Michigan”: ” ‘President Obama had the courage to step up and save General Motors, and because of it, I have a job today.’ ” William C. Durant didn’t build GM, but Barack Obama saved it.

That begs a good question: if Obama is saying…

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 ’cause 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: If you’ve got a business, that–you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”

…then that means that he cannot take credit for any of the things that he’s campaigning on, because someone else made that happen. When Obama is out there taking credit for rescuing the economy, for “responsibly” ending the war in Iraq (he followed the Bush plan), creating saving (insert number of the day here) jobs, for rescuing GM, for health care reform, for banking reform, Lilly Ledbetter,etc and so on, well, someone else made that happen. So, what can he run on? Closing Gitmo? Oops. As Mitt Romney stated

My own view is that if you attack success, you’ll continue to see what we have seen over the past three and a half years, which is less success. America is a nation which is defined by people coming to achieve, to fulfill their dreams.

It’s the typical Democrat idea: they do not want to build everyone up, they want to tear people down. That way they get the vote of the moocher class. Interestingly, Dems never have a problem with their own wealth and success, just with other people’s, and always refuse to voluntarily give up their own wealth to match their rhetoric.
