RNC Releases: "The More Context You Get, The Worse It Sounds"

- July 25, 2012

WASHINGTON - The Republican National Committee releases "The More Context You Get, The Worse It Sounds" after President Obama complained that his comments to entrepreneurs that "you didn't build that, somebody else made that happen" were taken out of context. The irony is that a closer look at the context reveals President Obama's true feelings-American success is the result of the work of government, not the hard work and sacrifice of America's entrepreneurs.

"President Obama thinks his comments are being taken out of context, but the reality is the context makes it worse," said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. "With more context, it is obvious President Obama doesn't understand that businesses succeed because of the hard work and sacrifice of the American people, not the growth and intrusiveness of government.

"President Obama thinks he can paint over his latest admission, but he can't cover up four years of anti-business actions. From his comments to entrepreneurs that 'you didn't build that' and 'the private sector is doing fine' to failing to meet with his jobs council and failing to hold Daily Economic Briefings, it's clear Obama's lack of concern for our economy is quite clear."
