You Didn't Get Here Solely On Your Own

140 posts in this topic

While Mitt Romney spent much of last week criticizing President Obama for telling business owners that they owed some of their success to others — such as teachers and those who have built government-paid roads, the Republican presidential candidate made a similar argument during the opening ceremonies of the 2002 Winter Olympics, telling the athletes "you didn't get here solely on your own power."

On the Mitt Irony Meter this ranks just below him demanding Ted Kennedy release his tax returns.

what many of you fail to understand is that Mitt is now a blank slate. He's an etch-a-sketch. Basically, he was given a shake when he decided to run for president, and all that garbage in the past is gone. No worries. Just wait to see what he looks like once he gets given a shake after winning the presidency.

This is pretty tame compared to Obama's pastor calling the country the U.S. of KKK A.

lol we're talking candidate religion now? let's get this poo started then.

According to Romney's, Native Americans are a "dark, loathesome and filthy people, full of idleness and all manner of abominations."

“If the white man who belongs to the chosen seed mixes his blood with the seed of Cain (black person) the penalty under the Law of God is death on the spot.”

Ok your turn.

I don't really have a problem with this. When looking at this with anything more than cursory glance, it's pretty easy to see the difference between the two.

What's the difference between the two? I think they're both perfectly valid points.

If you're an Olympian, you had help from the people around you, teachers, coaches, trainers, teammates, etc.

If you're a business owner, you had help from the people around you, teachers, friends, and the infrastructure we've set up as a society to be conducive to people starting their own business.

These aren't controversial remarks at all until you literally cut the words mid-sentence like the Romney ad that started the hullabaloo.
