    So i saw a Romney/Ryan ad that said "You did build that business!" ... It got me wondering...Is the "you didn't build that" slogan, Obamas "I can see Russia from my backyard" ?

    Standard slogan crop, I think people know if they built their business. And referencing it to a speech disingenuously reflects well on them.
    What's funny is Clint Eastwood slogan got let 'em'go. I think the people that are out of work know it and hearing slogan every day is not doing much for voters. I like to hear inspirational slogans positive ones
    On top of that there's a large change over to the office.
    The slogan I think will work is You gotta Bain'em

    You do realize that Palin never claimed to be able to see Russia, don't you?

    Problem with the "I can see Russia from my back yard" quote is that it is taken from the SNL skit and not from Palin. Tina Fey said it.

    Whereas the President really did say "you didn't build that". As well it's a mirrored belief that all things come from government from Elizabeth "Fakeahontas" Warren.

    One's a joke. One's quite serious.

    And truly "you didn't build that" insulted small business owners across America so the "I built this" variation of the slogan is sticking and resonating.

    Well what was said was taken out of context, also it was said in a very intellectual way, which is one problem I think Obama has. If you were to read the whole speech and understand the meaning, it was simple. The infrastructure that allows small business, large business and pretty much every thing else possible was built by tax revenue and things like the new deal, which we use everyday in person and professional life. I do not think this is a "Sarah palin" moment. I do wish and hope that Obama learns from it and starts talking more in lamens terms. I also hope that as a nation we can start coming together more, even on these forums.

    Sorry, no...the context is not your friend here.....

    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.

    a little further....

    Obama then cited the funding of the G.I. Bill, the creation of the middle class, the construction of the Golden Gate Bridge and Hoover Dam, inventing the Internet, and landing on the moon as examples of what he was talking about.[19]


    You didn't build that - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The context was precsiely that the individual didn't do it without the Gov.

    I don't want to read the whole speech what's wrong with you. If you want lamer terms listen to the republicans.I prefer comprehensive information and I don't know why I just do
    And as for getting together what planet are you from. I like people that post simple logic with a small amount of rationality. I can't be friendly with people like you.
