Mitt Romney: “You Didn’t Get Here Solely On Your Own”

Mitt Romney clearly hates capitalism.  He hates our adorable little Invisible Hand of the Marketplace.  As Rush Limbaugh will surely point out, Romney hates his own country.

It figures.  After all, Mitt Romney invented Obamacare (it just wasn’t called that) when he was governor of Massachusetts.  And at the time, he was trumpeting Romneycare as the perfect blueprint for the rest of the country to follow.

And now we find out that Mitt Romney addressed the opening ceremonies of the 2002 Winter Olympics with “you didn’t get here solely on your own.”

It takes a village — right, Willard?

The Romney campaign has been going batshit crazy over Obama’s taken-out-of-context quote “you didn’t build that.”  Obama’s quote was part of a speech that was similar to a speech given by Elizabeth Warren a few months ago.  Both of those speeches pointed out the painfully obvious (if you’re not a teabagger) truth:  you could have the most brilliant business plan ever, but without roads, schools and other nanny state government handouts paid for by taxpayers, your brilliant innovation is going nowhere.

So of course the Rightwing Echo Chamber has been spewing Obama’s “you didn’t build that” line all over the airwaves and the Internet, just so millions of inbred dumbfucks can parrot “hahaha, Obama said ‘you didn’t build that’ huh huh huh uh uh uh.”

And now it turns out that BOTH candidates hate personal initiative and individual achievement.  Let’s see Romney squirm his way out of this one — while he’s showing us his tax returns.

Willard could be on film in the shower stall next to Jerry Sandusky with his own boy, and the Rushpubliscums would still worship him. The fat dope addict has given them their orders, and they will obey.

It takes more than a village, it takes LUCK! The Orientals know this and it's deeply ingrained in their spiritualism and culture. Whenever I'm confronted by one of those self-made maroons who boast "you make your own luck" I always start with their influence over where they were born.

Real entrepreneurs generate their own electricity and process their own fuel for the fleet of helicopters they built in their own backyard. Everyone knows this. Duh.

The lies that this guy tells are getting to be just every other word. Never mind PO was talking about streets and schools that helped educate workers and get people to and from businesses at the time. Robme has gone to the Breitfart school of editing it appears.

I stand behind every word I say unless this is being recorded in which case you'll have to wait until I'm elected to get to know my real position.

JR: If only there was a photo of Willard and Rush Limbaugh in the shower together...

Mr. C: If these "self-made" people chose their parents and their time and place of birth, then I'll agree with them that they did it all with no outside help.

Randal: And they single-handedly mined all of the metals that went into those helicopters.

Jess: Makes you wonder if Breitbart is really dead.

Demeur: It's being recorded.

'you could have the most brilliant business plan ever, but without roads, schools and other nanny state government handouts paid for by taxpayers, your brilliant innovation is going nowhere.'

and you can't build roads without mfg's who produce the products used to build them and who's business provides jobs so the government has a revenue source. Would have been nice if he said that too but no, he was cow towing to his audience that orgasm with every word he says.

I assume you're just pretending not to grasp what Obama was saying.

Oh, Willard knows very well the value of government. For example, when he was with Bain and emptying pension funds of victim companies into Bain's accounts, Romney knew the federal Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp. would come along and make retirees whole, or close to whole — at taxpayer expense. The parasite.

No Tom I know exactly what he is saying.
He is saying he would not be where he is if others didn't 'pave the road' for him to step into the White House and an adoring knee pad wearing media who helped put him there.
