President Barack Obama said Tuesday that he’s losing his patience over the Republican attacks aimed at his “you didn’t build that” comment.
“I have to tell you, I generally have patience with what the other side says about me, that’s a requirement of this job,” Obama said during a $5,000-per-plate fundraiser here, according to the pool report.
“And if you don’t like folks talking about you, you probably shouldn’t run for president. The one thing I do have no patience for is this argument that somehow what I’m criticizing is success… I want to promote success,” Obama said.
Obama’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee are trying to get past the remark that has become a center piece of Mitt Romney’s stump speech that the administration considers government the only way for individual success in the private sector. Earlier Tuesday, Obama launched an ad campaign in six swing states with the president speaking directly into a camera to explain himself and argue that Romney has taken his words out of context.
I have yet to see a libnozzle put Obama’s words “into context” and have the meaning change.
Again, I want to see Obama condemn the words of Elizabeth Warren. Warren’s little speech is IN CONTEXT, and the main theme of her speech is almost lifted word for word by Obama.
No, I’m afraid what has happened here is that leftist ideology eeked out, 75% of the people, who are awake, were appalled, leftists couldn’t believe their message didn’t resonate and now they are trying to walk it back.
Too bad Joe the Plumber hadn’t asked a question prior to Obama saying what he said, that way libfilth could say, “he’s not even a plumber.”
This, of course, was their uniquely idiotic rebuttal to Obama’s “you got to spread the wealth around” remark in 2007.
