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.
