Hahahahaha, gotta love this. Basically, no normal person can comprehend what Willard’s blabbering about, because…guess what, because his weasel words make absolutely no sense. Heck, they don’t even make sense “retroactively!” LOL
Meanwhile, the latest Republican Big Lie (and false “outrage”) is to completely distort Barack Obama’s words (see below), about the obvious fact – as Elizabeth Warren has also pointed out – that business and free enterprise can only be successful in an environment where we’ve got an education system, a transportation system, a communications system, etc., (I’d add rule of law, a monetary system, a police force and military to defend us, and many other factors). Didn’t we all learn this in, like, 6th grade? Isn’t all this the very basis of “provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare and secure the blessing of liberty?” Are Republicans really THIS ignorant, or are they just really into telling outright, outrageous lies? Based on their latest manufactured hissy fit, I’d have to conclude “both.”
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.
