    Obama handed the GOP the golden opportunity..over and over...on a silver platter:

    - Obamacare
    - "You didn't build that"
    - Benghazi
    - Fast and furious
    - Oil spill
    - "The police acted stupidly" (which the GOP didnt really push, dont know why)
    - Oil pipeline not built
    - Apology tour
    - Credit downgrade

    I could go on and on.

    But point is....GOP...are you guys really that big of a group of fuckups that you couldnt win wiith all that handed to you? How bad would Bill Clinton have beat you guys haha?

    Obama was right when he said 'you didn't build that'.

    It’s not the republicans’ fault the voters correctly understood the items you list were non-issues, or had nothing to do with Obama, such as the credit downgrade and oil spill.

    You didn't build that, was one of the stupiest things I've ever heard a president say. It hurt him in the polls, and he deserved it.

    I really hope he fired that speech writer.

    Of course he did. Why would you want to build something when you can have someone else do it for you?

    But Obama did build a great re-election team, proving his community organizing wasn't such a non-qualifier as his enemies say. Also the mark of someone who is able to govern is how they put together their team for campaigns and other things. He gets an A+.

    And to Romney: You didn't win THAT! LOL!

    in fact, Obama won because the Republicans were unable to convince the American people he deserved to lose.

    There was no speech writer for that one.

    Crap like that, "not optimal", "bitter clingers" and "spread the wealth around" are the things that come out of his arugula hole when he's off script.

    When TOTUS isn't around, the economic dilettante, coldly detached snob and Marxist ideologue in him can't help but reveal itself.
