Barack Obama Doubles Down on “You Didn’t Build That!” Comment, the Obamanomics of Sharing & Economics … Because Its Worked So Well


I guess President Barack Obama did not get the memo that his foolish comment of “You didn’t build that!” line was a disastrous failure. But just like any good Alinsky disciple do when they are backed in a corner … double down of course. Last night at a California fundraiser, Obama lectured Mitt Romney on economics and continued with the loser of a statement that “You didn’t build that!” Of course we need to see where the speech took place, the far LEFT coast.

How out of step with America is Barack Obama, 72% believe small business owners primarily are responsible for their own success, yet the President continues on this big government, nanny state philosophy.

“I gotta tell you Oakland, he is dead wrong. We did not… We did not build this country from the top down. We built this country together. That’s how we sent a man to the moon. That’s how we built medical breakthroughs that saved millions of lives. If Mr. Romney does not understand that, then he doesn’t understand what it takes to build an economy where everybody has a shot to succeed.”

Mitt Romney blasted Obama following the insulting comments of every Entrepreneur in America and attacking success … “I find it extraordinary that a philosophy of that nature by a President of the United States.”

Barack Obama went on to tell the partisan crowd in Oakland, CA that his policies and agenda have worked. Really, they worked? For who and what country did Obamanomics work for? Under the regime of Obama unemployment has been over 8% for 41+ months, there is record number of people on food stamps, record government spending, record debt, record home foreclosures, record bankruptcies and more Americans are going on disability than getting jobs. Worked for who Mr. President, good grief!

Discussing his economic policies at a fundraiser in Oakland,  California, last night, President Obama, told supporters that “we tried our plan — and it worked.”

“We tried that and it didn’t work,” Obama said of Mitt Romney’s proposed tax cuts and spending cuts, which he dismissed as a Bush-style “top down” economic policy.  “Just like we’ve tried their plan, we tried our plan — and it worked,” he added later in the speech.  “That’s the difference. That’s the choice in this election.  That’s why I’m running for a second term.”

Obama made these comments in Oakland, where the unemployment rate was 13.7 percent in May 2012. The national unemployment rate is 8.2 percent — up from 8.1 percent in May — for the second straight month.

      The up-by-his-bootstraps businessman who stars in an ad for Republican hopeful Mitt Romney seems to have built his business through government-sponsored loans, putting a dent in the campaign’s attack on President Barack Obama’s saying to business owners, “you didn’t get there on your own.”

      “My father’s hands didn’t build this company? My hands didn’t build this company? My son’s hands aren’t building this company?” New Hampshire businessman Jack Gilchrist, president of Gilchrist Metal, asks in the ad that’s been making waves since last week.

      Reporting by The New Hampshire Union Leader disputed this claim by looking into Gilchrist’s history, revealing that he took over $1 million in government loans since the 1980s, including $800,000 in tax-exempt bonds issued by the New Hampshire Business Finance Authority to build a new manufacturing plant and buy equipment. Gilchrist also admitted to the paper that he took a U.S. Small Business Administration loan of “somewhere south of” $500,000 in the 1980s, and said that to this day about 10 percent of his business comes from defense-related projects.

      Ah, Oakland, California, the fertile
      stomping grounds of Obama’s dear
      associate Van Jones of Communist
      foundation and a fantastic rabble rouser
      (community organizer that is). This
      place has been the focus of the Great
      Society efforts forever and the folks
      are even worse off now. Whip ‘em
      up with a bunch of lies and see if they
      boil over!
