'NY Mag': Hitting Obama for 'You Didn't Build That' Is Racist

'NY Mag': Hitting Obama for 'You Didn't Build That' Is Racist

Quote:
The key thing is that Obama is angry, and he’s talking not in his normal voice but in a “black dialect.” This strikes at the core of Obama’s entire political identity: a soft-spoken, reasonable African-American with a Kansas accent. From the moment he stepped onto the national stage, Obama’s deepest political fear was being seen as a “traditional” black politician, one who was demanding redistribution from white America on behalf of his fellow African-Americans

Someone should run a review of his speeches and see how his "talking black/talking white" correlates to the point he's trying to make and the audience in front of him.

I suspect that a wide pandering streak will become apparent.

Only to those intellectually honest, which rules out liberals from the get-go.

So it's intellectually honest to suggest that Obama was talking about small business when he said "you didn't build that"? It's like watching some sort of mass hypnosis... the depths you people sink to in efforts to delude yourselves is pathetic.

"You didn't build that" will stay in the annals of history along with "I am not a crook" and "I didn't inhale".

It does seem to have that sort of resonance...

I've heard the comment so many times and never once even though about what his dialect was. Who comes up with this crap. The left is obsessed with race. Disgustingly pathetic

"If you've got a business, you didn't build that"

That sure sounds like he was talking to all the "yous" that have businesses.

"Intellectually Dishonest" is when you say "He didn't mean what he said"

"Delusional" is when you start believing that lie yourself.

“There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me because they want to give something back,” the president said. “If you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something -- there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there.

“If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen,” “The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.”

There's the two pertinent paragraphs. Sure looks to me like the smartest president in history was taken in context.

Looks like the proper context to me, too.
