Romney: Obama's "You Didn't Build That" Statement Could Only Be Spoken By a SCOAMF

In case you didn't see it, a commenter (sorry, forget who or what thread) linked Romney's rebuttal to You Didn't Build That (which, just like "Doin' Fine," will soon become I Didn't Say That).

It's good.

If you watch his exact words, he winks as he speaks a carefully-chosen string of words to describe Obama, each word's first letter spelling out "SCOAMF." *

* This isn't a "true" statement so much as what I like to call a "dream-lie," something I do a lot. "Dream-lying." It's fun, and it don't cost you nothin'.


UPDATE! As I said above -- You Didn't Build That will soon become I Didn't Say That.

And

here

we

go!

Sounds pretty bad — and it is, if you leave out the sentences directly before and after, which make it crystal clear Obama wasn’t talking about building businesses at all. The “that” in “you didn’t build that” referred to roads, bridges, infrastructure, education, emergency services and law and order — all services that protect and enable business owners along the way toward creating a successful operation.

Conn Carrol (the writer who linked that quote) calls this "the most substantive argument of 2012," because, of course, this is what the election is really about, and has always been about. Obama's just never been honest enough to say so before.

But this election is about socialism versus capitalism, and Obama's "From each according to his ability, to each according to his need" mindset must be discussed.

Romney had a quote from yesterday:

You understand, of course, what’s going on. What he is saying is his justification for raising taxes higher and higher, because government needs more. … You heard that story by the way, he is trying to take work out of welfare requirement. It is changing the nature of America, changing the nature of what the Democrats have fought for, and Republicans have fought for. In the past, people of both parties understood that encouraging achievement, encouraging success, encouraging people to lift themselves as high as they can, encouraging entrepreneurs, celebrating success instead of attacking it and denigrating, makes America strong. That’s the right course for this country. His course is extraordinarily foreign.

Bang on.
