Obama: "You Didn’t Build That" Comment A "Bogus Issue"
WCTV's Andy Alcock: First of all, I want to talk to you about some comments you made in Virginia the other day, caused a little bit of a stir. And I want to quote you exactly. Part of what you said, "If you've got a business, you didn't build that, somebody else made that happen." On Tuesday in Pennsylvania, Governor Romney responded and said quote, "To say something like that is not only foolishness, it's insulting to every entrepreneur, every innovator." Your response sir.
President Obama: "Well, the problem is you left out the sentence that I made before so what I said was together we build roads and we build bridges and so if you've got a business, you didn't build that...Meaning the roads and the bridges, not your business. And anybody who actually watched the tape knows that's what I was referring to. That's a point I've made millions of times and that's a point Mr. Romney has made as well so I think it's just a bogus issue.
