New Obama TV Ad Attacks Ryan On Abortion Stance

Talking Points Memo has the article, New Obama TV Ad Attacks Ryan On Abortion Stance.

The Obama campaign released a new TV ad Friday night aimed squarely at turning women off to the Mitt Romney-Paul Ryan ticket.


If you can’t win an election with positions that most people favor, then how can you win? (By mountains of propaganda, I suppose. But at least you can try to fight the mountains.)


Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that.

I have seen a bumper sticker that takes advantage of the misquotation that Romney uses.  Here is an antidote that you can print up and display yourself.

The fuller quote is in my previous blog, If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that.

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.
