Obama didnít mean what he said? Really?
Orange Punch, The Orange County Register political commentary blog ^ | 7-19-2012 | Mark Landsbaum

The latest spin is that when President Barack Obama put his foot in his mouth saying :“If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen,” he didn’t really mean it.

Yeah, and if you believe that, you probably think he was talking about voluntary charitable donations when he said, “I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.” ...

Didn’t mean it?

Really???

I guess when you are a blithering idiot shooting your mouth off when you ought to STFU, yea... you’d have to say:

“I didn’t mean what I said... you misunderstood..” etc...”

Our President is a M O R O N!

If he “mis-spoke” by screwing up a couple words, or spoke a short regrettable sentence, they could possibly play this game. However, he kept talking. He clarified his statement. He magnified his point. He meant everything he said. Idiot.

So Emperor Obama didn't mean what he said. Really?

Do I dare ask what else he has said in the past and will say in the future that he really didn't mean?

A man who was trained as a lawyer doesn't mean what he says? Oh, come on. Lawyers and reporters are two professions who depend on their precise use of the language to earn a living. A lawyer who says in public that he didn't mean to say something in public?

When I heard this comment for the seventh time in context, I finally understood what he meant. The “you didn’t build that” comment is about the bridge or road, not your business. Context cuts both ways. This time I have to side with the president, although I’m absolutely positive he has no respect for private industry. Just saying...

Thats Funny because Elizabeth Warren the Democrat Senate candidate From Mass.recently said the Exact same thing as Obama and I dont hear anyone saying she was taken out of Context. As a Matter of fact she made a statement today applauding Obama for saying what he did! So how could it have been out of Context?

Just like when he misspoke about his Muslim faith.

Until Georgie Boy reminded (haha, yeah, “reminded”) him that he meant to say CHRISTIAN faith.

Yeah, yeah... my CHRISTIAN faith.

You forgot about the part where he made fun of people who think they built something and that they were smarter than eveyone else,there are a Lot of Smart people out there,they had to have help from someone along the way. Fine, then where did all the Walt Disneys,go? According to Obama everyone is exactly the same,its just some crooks who keep evryone else down,especially conservatives and fox News,so Our Champion Coke and Pot Head knows all.
