The Zombie Apocalypse of Obama’s “You Didn’t Build This” Speech

taxgov

PJM writer Zombie completely nukes Obama's (and the liberal's/left's) “You didn’t build that” premise in this great essay well worth reading, then printing and passing around at work. Here's a bit to get you started...

President Obama’s instantly infamous “You didn’t build that” speech is a major turning point of the 2012 election not because it was a gaffe but because it was an accurate and concise summary of core progressive fiscal dogma. It was also a political blunder of epic proportions because in his speech Obama unintentionally proved the conservatives’ case for limited government.

This essay will show you how.

When Obama implied at the Roanoke, Virginia rally that some businessmen refuse to pay for public works from which they benefit, he presented a thesis which, like a three-legged stool, relies on three assumptions that must all be true for the argument to remain standing:

1. That the public programs he mentioned in his speech constitute a significant portion of the federal budget;

2. That business owners don’t already pay far more than their fair share of these expenses; and

3. That these specific public benefits are a federal issue, rather than a local issue.

If any of these legs fails, then the whole argument collapses.

For good measure, we won’t just kick out one, we’ll kick out all three.

What Obama and the democrats are trying to sell the American voter less than five months out from the November 2012 POTUS election is not only pure fiction but a comedy at that. I do not believe the American voters will buy this political Vaudeville act because they are already starting to see the pain of this reality of a failed Obama economy.
