If you are going to post a quote... post the entire quote you misleading ignorant piece of garbage.

"Of course, you’re right there are a number of retirees, members of the military, and so forth who are not paying taxes, and that’s as it should be, but I do believe that we should have enough jobs and enough take-home pay such that people have the privilege of higher incomes that allow them to be paying taxes. I think people would like to be paying taxes."

When you posted this.. did you intend to be misleading or did not know the rest of the quote and the context because you get your talking points from some far left wing source that misled you?

I honestly would like to know if you are a liar or just ignorant. You are at least one of those choices, it'd be helpful if we knew for certain which it is (or is it both?)

Right because that's what it was with Obama's statement, when he was talking about infrastructure and the right pulled out the scissors and made it sound like he was talking about their businesses....

However, in terms of thread titles, I believe it was "4 little words." Equally misleading in my opinion, because there was more to it than that.

It's the nature of politics. People have their minds made up already, now they're justifying. The funny thing is when Romney says something stupid and you see people going to great lengths to justify it.

That being said I'm sure it's equally funny to them when I do the same thing.

I think his point is where was that same outrage on that instance?

I would love for someone to tell me why they feel the intended meaning is bad. He's stating you didn't do it by yourself, you had help. He mentioned govt helping (which they did) but he also mentioned firefighters and teachers.

Because the implication of his entire quote is that business OWES government for it's help which is COMPLETELY BACKWARDS. It's the idea that govt exists FIRST AND FOREMOST and business is helped by it when it is private citizens and business that empower government. HUGE philosophical problem with what he said. BUT I am not one of the people who claimed he meant "you didn't build that" to mean you didn't build your own business.. he obviously meant "you didn't build all the infrastructure that was in place to allow you to build your business." And I have serious issues with the implications of that kind of government-centric way of thinking.

As for "outrage" I am not "outraged" here either. I am just pointing out how the thread starter is either a liar or ignorant. We already know he's an idiot. I guess I am "outraged" that people can be as blatantly worthless as the "person" who posted this nonsense.

Like I said, people will see what they want to see. I didn't see that at all from his speech. Where you saw antibusiness I saw him stating that we're in this together.

And Romney did say, "I think people would like to be paying taxes." But it looks different when presented without the preceding sentence.

I am a far left looney when it comes to social issues.. does that count? I ABHOR the Patriot Act. I am definitely a HAWK but I don't want to nation build or put soldiers in harm's way. Let's see... what else... I am all for clean energy (as long as we mean fusion or some unknown source as of yet.. actually I am fine with a diversified policy with a healthy mix of clean sources.. but many of those sources just aren't ready for prime time yet). OH and I don't believe life begins at conception, so early term abortion is fine by me.

So, if you have to call me a Republican, I'd be a Republican Party Reptile... or a PJ O'Rourke Republican.

I have posted this before, but it definitely applies to me so here it goes again...

Again, Obama's quote while I definitely agree that out of context has a different meaning.. and I don't agree with taking it out of context... it still has the same implications.

Hold on a sec. I need to post the whole quote! I left out some of the good parts...

"I think our agenda is clear. We are opposed to: government spending, Kennedy kids, seat-belt laws, busing our children anywhere other than Yale, trailer courts near our vacation homes, all tiny Third World countries that don't have banking secrecy laws, aerobics, the UN, taxation without tax loopholes, and jewelry on men. We are in favor of: guns, drugs, fast cars, free love (if our wives don't find out), a sound dollar, and a strong military with spiffy uniforms. There are thousands of people in America who feel this way, especially after three or four drinks. If all of us would unite and work together, we could give this country. . . well, a real bad hangover."


The "deal" is that I think Obama is an amateur whose fiscal policies are "getting in the way" and his foreign policy APPEARS weak. I don't think it actually IS weak... but it projects weakness. AND the most important thing is that Obama has made some serious Executive Branch power grabs that scare the shit out of me. Frankly, the LEFT should be scared as well (eventually a Republican will be in office and take advantage of all the dictatorial new powers Obama is inventing) The idea that the President can ignore the law and Congress and rule by virtual decree is scary as hell. Now, Obama hasn't gone THAT far yet but he has certainly inched us closer. At least Bush had the decency to pass the rights-raping Patriot Act through Congress.

Expect MSNBC to be crusading against it for a couple of days, and FOX to be excusing it for just about as long, and then something else will come along. It's a giant detraction from actual policy and philosophy and real issues, but it's part of American politics. Get used to it.

This one is for you JDiddy...

A boy is hitchhiking on a country road. A car stops for him, and the driver asks, "Are you a Republican or a Democrat?"

"Democrat," says the boy, and the car speeds off.

Another car stops, and the driver asks, "Are you a Republican or a Democrat?"

"Democrat," says the boy, and the car speeds off.

This happens two or three times, and the boy decides he's giving the wrong answer. The next car that stops is a convertible driven by a beautiful blonde. "Are you a Republican or a Democrat?" she asks.

"Republican," says the boy, and she lets him in.

But as they're driving along, the wind from the open top begins to push the blonde's skirt higher and higher up her legs. And the boy finds himself becoming aroused.

Finally he can't control himself any longer. "Stop!" he hollers. "Let me out! I've only been a Republican for ten minutes and already I feel like screwing somebody!"

You are really bad at doing the equivalency thing. Democrats screaming? Over those things? I don't think so. However, Rs did make 'you didn't build that' a cornerstone of their campaign.

Many of those people not paying taxes is because their not working and wouldn't you think they'd rather be working a making more than $26,000 per year? If they do they'll be paying taxes.

Romney said. "I think people would like to be paying taxes." Well he chose to reveal this on Fox News today. LOL So for all you republicans mesmerized by the Grover Norquist blackmail pledge...READ HIS LIPS...LMAO

Warnings serve as a reminder to you of the forum's rules, which you are expected to understand and follow.

All the best,

Wait a second here. That is an outright fraud to suggest this. There is nothing misleading about that at all. It is clear to me that you do not intend anything other than to suppress opinion that is contrary to your own. Not only did I provide an exact quote, but I told you where the statement was made from. This is not a news site here. It is entirely of opinion. This is a pathetic email.

No, you're really bad at pretending you're middle of the road when you post things like this.

What I said is accurate, that's all that matters.

Yeah, as long as a bunch of goofballs don't pile on and infract him to the point of getting a mod involved or, if they do, as long as that mod doesn't get too trigger happy, he has nothing to worry about for the thread title, IMO.

Why is there even a question--It is a thread title with an accurate, exact quote.

Meanwhile, just a few down the page we have:
"Professor makes class sign “Vote for Obama” pledge"

I think the only thing this quote is worth is a bit of a chuckle knowing that had Obama said the same thing it would be used over and over in ads by the GOP.

It's not that much different than the whole "you didn't build that" phrase out of context. The difference is that the latter fits into the GOP narrative as opposed to being ironic coming from a republican.

So...what you're saying is that Ds might make fun of the out-of-context quote for a bit, but the Rs would latch onto it like a dog on a T-bone and make it into a campaign theme. And that there's nothing 'equal' about the treatment of such statements. I agree.

It was a question because Literature wasn't sure where the "email" came from. I answered the question so it's no longer a question.

The globalists that have hijacked our government have purposesly elected Romney to run against Obama because he's a shitty candidate. Romney has all the ammo in the world to virtually prevent any chance of Obama winning in November, and he's simply ran the shittiest campaign I've ever seen in recent memory.

Get Ron Paul in a preidential debate with Obama....and Obama would be wearing a clown suit.

Neither one of these candidates give 2 ****s about the state of this country.

Anyting and everything evolves around the federal reserve and our economy...and neither candidate has provided a plan that would fix anything...because they don't plan to.

And you think getting rid of the Federal Reserve would fix a lot of problems?

I don't think getting rid of the federal reserve outright would fix a lot of problems. I do think that creating competition, in the form of competeing currencies, would put the federal reserve in check. I believe that would be beneficial to the country, but it would not fix a lot of problems by itself. The only thing that I believe could fix a lot of problems, by itself, would be a sharp decrease in government spending.

The "you didn't build that" phrase is both disturbing and worthy of discussion because it sums up in a nutshell the hostility that Obama has towards the business community and the justification that he uses for wealth redistribution.

That's hardly the same thing as "I think people would like to be paying taxes", because that's a deliberate misinterpretation of Romney's message. When you look at the entire context of the "you didn't build that" speech, it's clear that the sound bite isn't taken out of context at all. When you look at the entire context of the "I think people would like to be paying taxes" speech, it's clear that Romney was saying something completely different: he was saying people would like to have higher incomes.

What is disturbing is that those residing in the bubble took the statement so far out of context.

Yea you're a moderate :rolleyes:

Obama made a grammatical flub that has clearly been taken out of context, but since there is a D after his name it's different.

It was taken out of context, but when back in context it means essentially the same thing, i.e. that business owners were just lucky to be successful because there are lots of people who work hard or who are smart but who don't succeed. If roads, teachers and other public works were what made for a successful business, we'd all be CEOs. Whining about that "out of context" presentation is like whining because the F on your grade report doesn't fully explain what specific questions you answered wrong.
