Wow i'm not sure how it was taken out of context though. The whole quote is along the same lines.
"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. The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.
"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. I mean, imagine if everybody had their own fire service. That would be a hard way to organize fighting fires.
"So we say to ourselves, ever since the founding of this country, you know what, there are some things we do better together. That’s how we funded the G.I. Bill. That’s how we created the middle class. That’s how we built the Golden Gate Bridge or the Hoover Dam. That’s how we invented the Internet. That’s how we sent a man to the moon. We rise or fall together as one nation and as one people, and that’s the reason I’m running for President -- because I still believe in that idea. You’re not on your own, we’re in this together.""
The whole thing says that WE as a people of this country built the infrastructure, the education the tools for that one business to be able to succeed. The distortion purports that he says no one in any business was had the ability to do it and had to have big brother to make it happen.
Which business is it that started this year that didn't need public utility transmission, telephones, internet, water, and road to get there. Which one never ever will need police or fire protection?
In other words a purposeful distortion of is words as a lie. But, that is cool, if all you man has is lies then he isn't much of a candidate.
Just curious, is there one thing that Romney has not been on both sides of? Is there one thing you feel he has not lied about and really will stick to his guns over?
