Transcript of what he said ....

If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. 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.

Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.

Somebody invested in roads and bridges.

We should bow and thank government for all good things, think it is in the bible.

The only governmental "assistance" he referenced was the internet. He was alluding to this idea called community.

So acknowledge the gov't can be sh*tty and decent at times. More of the time sh*tty. That's about it

Hey PL there's a future for you at Fox News.

Didn't get that from Fox News ... are you disputing that the transcript is accurate? No spin there at all ... just quoted what he said, verbatim.

It is what he said.

Yes ... and "roads and bridges" is NOT all that he said. What part of that don't you understand?

Also, do you understand that the business people themselves helped build those "roads and bridges," too.

It's not just "roads and bridges" that make a successful business. It's bullshit for you and others to imply that that is ALL Obama meant by what he said ... the old "we're all in this together" crap.

Woah, business is not bullshit. That's communist talk.
