Putting Mitt Romney's attacks on 'You didn't build that' to the Truth-O-Meter

In speeches and videos, the Romney campaign has repeatedly distorted Obama's words. By plucking two sentences out of context, Romney twists the president's remarks and ignores their real meaning.

The preceding sentences make clear that Obama was talking about the importance of government-provided infrastructure and education to the success of private businesses.

Romney also conveniently ignores Obama's clear summary of his message, that "the point is ... that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together."

By leaving out the "individual initiative" reference, Romney and his supporters have misled viewers and given a false impression. For that, we rate the claim False.

everyone should know that by now.

"Each year in the U.S., approximately 12 million adults who seek outpatient medical care are misdiagnosed, according to a new study published in the journal BMJ Quality & Safety. This figure amounts to 1 out of 20 adult patients, and researchers say in half of those cases, the misdiagnosis has the potential to result in severe harm."

Fox News stopped airing President Barack Obama's joint press conference Friday with German Chancellor Angela Merkel because, the network said, reporters weren't asking him about Benghazi.
The topic has animated the conservative news network, and especially so Friday because Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) had just announced the House will vote to establish a select committee to investigate the Obama administration's response to the 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate that left four Americans dead.
When cutting away from the news conference, Fox News anchor Harris Faulkner was quite blunt about the fact that Benghazi was all Fox wanted to discuss at that moment.
"If in fact somebody throws him a question on this topic, we'll go back to that joint news conference with Angela Merkel and you could hear the translation points. We're going to move on here with what is breaking," Faulkner said.
The president wasn't asked about Benghazi, and the network didn't return to the joint press conference with the two U.S. and German leaders.
By contrast, MSNBC and CNN carried Obama's news conference from start to finish.
The president discussed Russia and Ukraine, U.S.-Germany relations, National Security Agency spying and the recent botched execution in Oklahoma.

someone please tell FOX that pressers aren't for used for talking about unfounded conspiracy theories.
it's ok FOX, someday you might be part of the MSM. just not today.
I bet it really pissed you off when ABC, CBS, and NBC refused to cut into prime time for one of Obama's pressers.

The spring thaw is here! The U.S. economy added 288,000 jobs in April, and the unemployment rate fell to 6.3 percent. The jobless rate is now the lowest it's been since the financial crash in September 2008. Analysts expected job gains of 220,000 at most, believing the economy would shake off a winter freeze. The number of unemployed people dropped by 733,000 to 9.8 million--but 806,000 also quit looking. February and March's gains were revised up 36,000 in total.

Everyone made their own opinions about Obama's remarks and they didn't like it.
