UPDATE: WELCOME BILL O'REILLY FANS! THANKS BILL!
THIS IS THE BEST POLITICAL TV AD SINCE REAGAN'S MORNING IN AMERICA:
I BELIEVE ROMNEY JUST WON THE ELECTION:
GOD BLESS AMERICA.
GOD BLESS AMERICANS.
A COMPLETE TAKE DOWN OF THE OBAMA COUNTER-ARGUMENT THAT MITT IS TAKING THE COMMENT OUT OF CONTEXT HERE.
MITT DISPENSES WITH THE FALSE "OUT OF CONTEXT" ARGUMENT:
KUDLOW: Why do you think President Obama, what did he mean, if you've got a business, you didn't build it, someone else made that happen? He claims it's being taken out of context. What do you think it means? Do you think this is Obama anti-business, anti-entrepreneur? Or do you think maybe he has been treated unfairly?
Gov. ROMNEY: Well, just read the whole speech. I found the speech even more disconcerting than just that particular line.
The context is worse than the quote.
The context, he says, you know, you think you've been successful because you're smart, but he says a lot of people are smart. You think you've been successful because you work hard, a lot of people work hard.
This is an ideology which says hey, we're all the same here, we ought to take from all and give to one another and that achievement, individual initiative and risk-taking and success are not to be rewarded as they have in the past.
It's a very strange and in some respects foreign to the American experience type of philosophy. We have always been a nation that has celebrated success of various kinds. The kid that gets the honor roll, the individual worker that gets a promotion, the person that gets a better job. And in fact, the person that builds a business.
And by the way, if you have a business and you started it, you did build it.
And you deserve credit for that.
It was not built for you by government.
And by the way, we pay for government. Government doesn't come free. The people who begin enterprises, the people who work in enterprises, they're the ones paying for government.
So his whole philosophy is an upside-down philosophy that does not comport with the American experience.
