You didn't win that.
Yep it must be really hard for a lifetime government worker to understand hard work and success.
That was MItt’s Olympics line!!
The centerpiece of the Rethuglican plan is an out of context quote.LOSERS
No, no — she did it herself. No coaches taught her anything, and no parents ever drove her to practice. In fact, she built the practice facility herself, and she organized all the competitions so she could rise in the ranks. Then she raised the money for the London Olympics, flew there on her own money and won the gold.
In your own words … don’t comment if you can’t keep your facts straight.
Hello Neighbors,No, she absolutely won her medals by sacrificing time with her family, putting practice and homework above a social life, and with a work ethic rare in Americans of all ages these days. Not even going to mention the money spent or the taxes the goverment is going to charge her and other medal winners for their medals and prize money. If we take what Obama said IN CONTEXT, she did NOT build the gyms where she practiced, the equipment on which she practiced, the roads and bridges she took to those places of practice. She did not build/maintain/operate the power companies and water companies on which she depended, and she had little to do with those people and companies from whence her food, medicenes, and safety from dangerous products and people came. When Mr. Payne repeats the, “you didn’t build that” line, he diminishes the efforts of all of those people upon whose shoulders we ALL ride. The use of this statement is as wrong as Harry Reid’s dishonorable and unethical accusation against Romney. As neighbors and UNITED States, we should speak up against lies- even when they support our own goals and candidates. Our Olympians earned their medals all by themselves. Our people provided the environment and infrastructure in which the olympians could train and practice in safety and confidence. Now its time to build a country where we can work together in friendship and as the UNITED States of America.Respectfully,C
Mitt Romney said this in 2002 during the Salt Lake City Olympics:
“You Olympians, however, know you didn’t get here solely on your own power. For most of you, loving parents, sisters or brothers, encouraged your hopes, coaches guided, communities built venues in order to organize competitions. All Olympians stand on the shoulders of those who lifted them. We’ve already cheered the Olympians, let’s also cheer the parents, coaches, and communities. All right!.”
Never stopped a liberal yet.
No liberals do that.
I think it’s really too bad that a good comment about the importance of community and working together has gotten all twisted up by political interests.
“You Olympians, however, know you didn’t get here solely on your own power”-willard romney
Are you telling me romney didn’t say that? Or are you going to complain about romney being taken out of context. PLEASE complain about that. I’m begging you.
@Morty: truth hurts, eh?
Not by herself, she didn’t. Coaches, family sacrifices, sport facilities, did she fly to England with her own wings? I didn’t think so….
When taken IN CONTEXT, I agree with what both MItt, and Obama said!! Morons who think they owe nothing to society, should be dropped on a deserted island, to “sink or swim” on their own. The biggest fraud on the “Survivor” TV “reality” show is, that in reality, every one of their self-serving jerks who’ve won on the show, would have been dead in three days without the support crews and phony “stranding”.
Make excuses all you want. Mitt unintentionally let slip what he really thinks. Such a shamefull display.
“The difference is that Obama doesn’t believe in individual achievement”“The point is, is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative”The above quote was said by the president in the same speech, SAME DAMN PARAGRAPH as “you didn’t build that”.
How f***ing hard is it to get that “that” was “infrastructure?” Obama said that small businesses don’t build infrastructure, Romney said to give a hand to coaches and parents of Olympians. Yeah, the right is f***ing stupid right now.
….And I see that someone has bought into the Republican’s lie.
What BS. Obama is a self made man, not a stamped version of a rich elite snob like Twit.
Isn´t this “joke” getting abit old?
I repeat:“The point is, is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative”How do you explain that if the state takes precedence?Also, how do you (I don’t mean “just you”, I mean the entire right wing apparently) make the jump from Obama bashes small buisness to Obama bashes the olympics? Especially since there is a presedential candidate who says the olympians didn’t earn their medals on their own.
“City above all” ? Do you mean Chicago? :-|Ihr Deutsch ist so schlecht, wie Sie Ihr Englisch
