Obama IN Context – OUT OF Time

Code words. Liberals are full of them.

Liberals are full of a great many things, most stink out loud and code words are certainly on that list. What liberals don’t want anybody to know is what certain code words really mean and, when exposed, they deny the definition with vigor.

Today, we reveal the secret behind one of their favorite codes.

We hear it all the time and, frankly, we’re sick of it.

Liberals have nobody to blame but themselves.

Here it is…

“That was taken out of context.”

Clearly, there are variations…

“That was taken completely out of context.”

“You can’t take something out of context and try to make people believe in something that was never said.”

“You have to quit taking things out of context.”

And an all time favorite…”Conservatives are always taking things out of context.”

It’s code and, now, because of this article…Not so secret any more.

“THAT WAS TAKEN OUT OF CONTEXT” in liberal speak actually means…”We slipped up and told the truth about what we really think.”

First, let’s look at something ACTUALLY taken “out of context.”

If someone were to say…

“I would NEVER go to the state of Montana were it not for the beautiful vistas, the clean mountain air, the clear rivers and lakes and the friendly people you meet along the way.”

And they were then quoted as saying…

“I would NEVER go to the state of Montana.”

THAT WOULD BE TAKEN OUT OF CONTEXT!!!

That, however, is NOT what happened to Obama’s latest statement. NOT EVEN CLOSE.

Okay…Now let’s really LOOK at that statement.

“We’ve already made a trillion dollars’ worth of cuts.”  (Maybe but…You have ALSO spent more than any president in history! So you say you’ve made a trillion in cuts BUT…you conveniently left out that you’ve SPENT 6 TRILLION DOLLARS!!!)

We can make some more cuts in programs that don’t work, and make government work more efficiently…We can make another trillion or trillion-two, and what we then do is ask for the wealthy to pay a little bit more …” (Ahhh…the wealthy…THEY’RE ALREADY PAYING 70% OF ALL THE TAXES while something like 45% of the people pay NO TAXES at all. Now granted, those paying NO taxes don’t create jobs unless they happen to be GE but…by INCREASING taxes on those who DO create jobs…YOU ARE PROVIDING THEM THE INCENTIVE TO STOP CREATING JOBS…STOP GROWING…STOP ADDING TO THE ECONOMY!!!)

Now we get to the meat of the thing…

There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me, because they want to give something back.  They know they didn’t -look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own.  You didn’t get there on your own.” (He repeats himself for emphasis…”If you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own.” That indicates that Obama really, REALLY means that he believes nobody achieves success on their own)

 “ I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart.  There are a lot of smart people out there.  It must be because I worked harder than everybody else.  Let me tell you something – there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there.” (Clearly Obama does NOT believe that people achieve success because they are smart OR because they work hard)

“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.” (Notice he says WERE instead of, ARE when talking of success. Do teachers help? Sure. Notice he says INVESTED in rather than BUILT when talking about roads and bridges. Who INVESTED in them? AMERICAN TAXPAYERS!!)

“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.”

Here, Obama CLEARLY states that YOU did NOT build YOUR business…Somebody ELSE made that happen!!!

He goes on to say that the internet didn’t get built on its own and that GOVERNMENT RESEARCH created the internet SO THAT ALL THE COMPANIES COULD MAKE MONEY OFF THE INTERNET…which is clearly FALSE because the GOVERNMENT research (which again was paid for by AMERICAN TAXPAYERS) CREATED THE INTERNET not for companies to make money off it BUT FOR THE DEFENSE DEPARTMENT!!!

At NO point in the remaining segments of his statement does Obama link “roads and bridges” to anyone’s individual business. He DOES go on to state that municipal services like fire departments are government run but entities such as that, and roads and bridges are ALSO funded by TAXPAYER DOLLARS which he simply leaves out of the equation at every step!

THEN..Obama states, CLEARLY that a combination of individuals and GOVERNMENT are responsible for creating the Hoover Dam, sending men to the moon and CREATING THE MIDDLE CLASS??? GOVERNMENT HELPED CREATE THE MIDDLE CLASS???

What Obama nor any socialist can conceive of, is that ALL…EACH AND EVERY THIN DIME THAT THE GOVERNMENT PUTS INTO ANYTHING…

COMES DIRECTLY FROM THE PEOPLE…AMERICAN TAXPAYERS…

GOVERNMENT COULD NOT RUB 2 NICKLES TOGETHER WERE IT NOT FOR THE HARD WORK OF THE AMERICAN TAXPAYER!!!

So, to point out that Obama stated“If you’ve got a business…you didn’t build that.  Somebody else made that happen,”  is far different than taking it out of context. It’s a standalone sentence from a broader speech. NOTHING he says AFTER or BEFORE it…ALTERS ITS MEANING.

But…Obama doesn’t LIKE hearing his own words or thoughts played back to him because, he realizes that…he slipped up and was truthful about his own beliefs…You can’t be successful or build a business without the help of the government.

So…Obama issues THIS statement out of desperation…

“Those ads taking my words about small business out of context, they are flat-out wrong. Of course Americans build their own businesses. Every day, hard-working people sacrifice to meet a payroll, create jobs, and make our economy run. And what I said was that we need to stand behind them, as America always has, by investing in education and training, roads and bridges, research and technology.”

Ummm…He NEVER said, in his original statement that, “we need to stand behind them, as America always has, by investing in education and training, roads and bridges, research and technology.”

He NEVER said in his original statement that, “Of course Americans build their own businesses,” in fact…he said the exact OPPOSITE“If you’ve got a business…you didn’t build that.  Somebody else made that happen.”

In his original statement, Obama NEVER stated, . “Every day, hard-working people sacrifice to meet a payroll, create jobs, and make our economy run,” but he DID…again…State the exact OPPOSITE in saying,  “ I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart.  There are a lot of smart people out there.  It must be because I worked harder than everybody else.  Let me tell you something – there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there,” as a way of demeaning their success.

Here is the point which MUST be made and hammered upon every day from now until the election…

NOBODY TOOK HIS WORDS OUT OF CONTEXT BUT…

IN HIS DESPERATE ATTEMPT TO COVER HIS ASS…

OBAMA IS TRYING TO…CHANGE THE CONTEXT OF HIS ORIGINAL STATEMENT!!!!!!

The fact is, government interference makes achieving success in business harder. The more regulations and restrictions that are added to businesses the harder it becomes to build or even start a business. The more taxes levied against businesses the less incentive there is for businesses to grow and become successful.

Obama said what he said and meant it because it is what he, as a socialist, believes.

“If you’ve got a business…you didn’t build that.  Somebody else made that happen.”

Those words are every bit the antithesis of the American Dream, they were spoken by the very antithesis of an American president and any attempt to scold those who point it out by claiming to have said the exact opposite of what was actually said, is the very definition of  lying out of desperation.

  1. LOL…I don’t know who wrote this speech or what exactly they were trying to accomplish, but they really shit the bed by allowing barry to give it…no-one whose ever completed high school (well, maybe before the 70’s…LOL) would ever mistake that for anything other than what it was…Stalin or Lenin couldn’t have done a better job of isolating and insulting those responsible for the REAL progress in this country, if they’de tried!

    His biggest problem is that he really believes this crap, but what else could he believe? He’s NEVER accomplished a thing, not one, single, solitary thing, without the game having first been rigged and a bunch of retarded sycophants around him telling him what a wonder he is, when a good healthy dose of rality would have been the best thing to have ever happened to him in his long, useless life!

    Anyone wanting to vote for him in ’08 would have done well to simply research his district in Chicago and the alleged “progress” he made there! (I beleive Chicago is going to go bankrupt shortly all due in part to barry’s actions as an ‘organizer’ and Senator and certainly in his campaign for potus when he cut the throat of the person who gave him her senate seat! THAT is barack obama, NOT this mid-western drawled loser pretending, badly, I might add, to have American values, when EVERYONE he has ever surrounded himself with are hardcore anti-American socialists or avowed communists (which I believe he is, a communist) with absolutely no successes of their own!

    I can remember when presidents had class, were well mannered, even tempered, intelligent, educated, and actually loved and truly believed in America and all that’s GREAT about this country (that ended with clinton and his corrupt crew of hillbillies)…this one has none of those qualities! Not even one! And it saddens me to see how many gullible folks voted for this fool, he isn’t even a very good fraud and yet they lap it up like broke dick puppies!

    Barry has not one appealing quality about him!
    He lies as a matter of course, even when he ought not have too!
    He has NO work history at to speak of!
    He’s had no successes that weren’t prepped long before his arrival!
    His history at the senate is an embarrassment to those who elected him since a four year old could send someone else to vote “present”!
    He’s a true and unrepentant racist!
    His wife is a hateful, selfish, angry, hypocritical racist creature!
    He’s a communist and has the t-shirt to prove it!

    I have NEVER feared for the future of my country more than I do tonight! NEVER! I fear even worse our being forced to evict him, the damage that’ll do to this country and its image around the world may be irreparable….

  2. The guy above who said this: Watch what happens when you put the whole quote together…

    … is a complete dimwit. “Syntatical error” ?? How stupid does he think we are? I had to struggle very hard to even understand his point. The word “that” refers not to “business” but to “roads and bridges” ??

    That’s like lying on your back and pretending the clouds are staying put and the earth is turning instead. What a dimwit.

  3. Watch what happens when you put the whole quote together:
    “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.”
    Obama makes a syntactical error with the use of the word “that,” which grammatically refers back to the word business. Clearly, though, he meant for it to refer to the system, to the roads and bridges, etc, that he was talking about. He’s saying that as a small business owner, you benefit from this system that you did not yourself build. No man is an island – it’s a pretty simple truism. Your reading of his statement is that he was talking about the country’s support system and then out of nowhere accuses business owners of not building their own businesses, which, as you point out, would be a ludicrous statement, and then continues talking about the support system. So the two competing readings are that Obama made a slight syntactical error while making a point that he (and Mitt Romney, and just about everybody else) often makes about life in a society, or he suddenly blurts out an obviously offensive dismissal of business owners out of nowhere. That’s the choice you get to make when you actually pay attention to the context of the quote. Out of context though, when you begin the quote with “If you’ve got a business – you didn’t build that,” which you do every single time you use the quote in your article (I wonder why), you lose the perspective to see the obvious syntactical error and the only logical reading is the one that fits your narrative. That’s what is meant by the whole taking quotes out of context thing. It’s amazing how you so willfully do it even while ridiculing the premise that it’s being done.

    • Context…

      I focus on that part of the statement because that IS the focus of the issue. I also provide the entire statement.
      To call this a syntax error is foolish. He said what he said and never went back, within the original statement to connect it. It therefore stands alone.
      In his walk-back…he completely alters the original statement into something he never said.

      Obama is what he is…an anti business socialist.

  4. the problem obama has here is that his speech was written only for the audience he was targeting… sadly, it was marketed for the down-trodden, which went over well w/ them… but, when the speech was projected to the larger u.s. audience, it didn’t go over as well (as it must have played out in their minds): becuz anyone w/ half a brain and/or educated (notice i didn’t lump the two together) knows it’s a crock of crap! the best defense against barry w/ this massive gaffe, is all the small business owners who are speaking up & out on their own defense…. the pictures of themselves holding signs saying “i built my own business” say it all. (and, u can’t help but wonder if any of them are democrats…)

  5. Terrific article! I’m sharing it on Facebook and Twitter. It has been so frustrating hearing the left howling about this being taken out of context. They are so intellectually dishonest it is just breathtaking, and infuriating too!
