    Everybody does, but Romney wasn't trying to build a case for raising taxes. And he sure as hell didn't imply that the gov't deserves the credit for their accomplishments in getting to the Olympics, let alone if they win a medal.

    After the GOP thugs and the Willard campaign went on a frothing at the mouth rampage trashing Obama's speech by taking it out of context, claiming that the government is responsible for small business, this grand slam find shows the complete hypocrisy of Willard.

    Willard states to olympians "You didn't get here solely on your own"

    Go USA!

    Did he tell them that they didn't get there? That this wasnt their victory? Their honor?

    Nice try

    Someone should tell the Governor he's running for President.

    Note the source? [ThinkProgress]. They're getting desparate to foist upon us that Romney actually agrees with Obama. Far from it. And the Olympics are far removed from small businesses that Obama attacked Friday week in Roaboke, Va.

    It's disingenuous. The OP should know better. The Comparison is Apples to the byproduct after horses consume them.

    "" This was the best candidate your money could buy? Shop harder in 4 years. "


    MY money? No way, he don't need my money anyway. Still a better choice than the guy we got now.
