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.

You are comparing apples to oranges, Grey Ghost you fool.
For example:
http://www.pbs.org/newshour/updates/middle_ea...
"The coordinated attack prompted a firefight with
security guards that raged for at least 10 minutes at the concrete barriers
that circle the compound."
"The dead included six attackers, six Yemeni guards and four
civilians, the state news agency SABA reported, according to the Associated
Press."
You are getting as stupid and desperate as DumbDave is, Grey Ghost.
What a dumbass. Two of the people killed at Benghazi were security guards.

Republicans do Not plan to repeal ACA.
Shhhhh... don't tell the dummies!

More from the White House Correspondents Dinner:

Of course, there is one thing that keeps Republicans busy. They have tried more than 50 times to repeal Obamacare. Despite that, 8 million people signed up for health care in the first open enrollment.(Applause.) Which does lead one to ask, how well does Obamacare have to work before you don’t want to repeal it? What if everybody’s cholesterol drops to 120?(Laughter.) What if your yearly checkup came with tickets to a Clippers game?(Laughter.) Not the old, Donald Sterling Clippers -- the new Oprah Clippers. Would that be good enough?(Laughter.) What if they gave Mitch McConnell a pulse?(Laughter.) What is it going to take?(Laughter.)

Arming The Enemy: Obama Gives al-Qaeda-linked Terrorists Anti-Tank Weapons

Israel’s Debkafile website reported on April 7th that two Syrian terrorist groups, the Free Syrian Army and the Syrian Revolutionary Front, both of them linked to al-Qaeda, were supplied with advanced US-made weapons, including armor-piercing, optically-guided BGM-71 TOW missiles.
Time magazine reported last month that Obama was considering giving our al-Qaeda terrorists enemies manpads, which are surface-to-air missles capable of shooting down commercial airliners.
I´ve heard this giving arms to terrorists classified as ´shifting positions´ in the war on terror. I call supplying our enemies with arms an act of treason.
That's some funny chit Flacko. Find more at www.debka.com

One kinda sees a pattern with DB, He claimed to be a Sergeant [but couldn't spell the rank] then he claims to be an Altar boy but he is unable to spell that also. I think we have a modern day Walter Mitty amongst us.
Speaking of the military, the reich wing thugs at the American Legion now want Barack to fire the head of the American Legion who is fighting hard to clean up the mess caused by Bush.

Why do you ask dumb questions??
Does he need a terror group membership card to be a terrorist?? LOL
You folks try to sound logical, but sound uneducated.
Anyone who commits an act of terror is a terrorist, and don't even try the stupid shat of tying in Ft. Hood. Typical Teabag. Acts of Terror are acts of terror, whether it's Tim McVeigh or the Colorado shooter. Sorry if you prefer not to call white christian men terrorists, but there it is.
What in the hell are you doing here??
These obscure inferences you attempt to make are lame, even by Teabag standards..
You make statements that make no sense, then ask 'what terrorits group did he belong to'.
Get lost.
It comes down to motive and intent.

Glad you brought up McVeigh. That is a terrorist. The motive and intent is different than a mental case in a movie theater.

First time I've heard this. The generals on the ground didn't seem to know it either apparently. They were perplexed as to why they weren't given any orders to go in and rescue that embassy and those men.
Obama's accelerated drone war demolishes homes and kills innocents on a regular basis.
of course you never heard of this. you are an idiot and the people you parrot don't tell you the truth...

everyone else knew it to be the truth.

the military was, in fact, given orders to go in and rescue them. and they did just that...whya re you so uninformed about this issue? why are you talking about it if you know nothing at all about it?

He's not saying anything, he's just cutting and pasting propaganda fed to him by the Koch brothers. He doesn't waste time reading this shit and wouldn't understand it if he did.
