I'll guess that he means "no one is entitled to success, you need to earn it."
Thats what I have to GUESS he is saying too. It just came out like a fricking train wreck.
quote: “I just don’t know how the president could have come into office, facing 23 million people out of work, rising unemployment, an economic crisis at the kitchen table, and spend his energy and passion for two years fighting for Obamacare instead of fighting for jobs for the American people,” Romney said,
ROMNEY: Simpson-Bowles, the president should have grabbed that.
LEHRER: No, I mean, do you support Simpson-Bowles? ROMNEY: I have my own plan. It's not the same as Simpson- Bowles. But in my view, the president should have grabbed it. If you wanted to make some adjustments to it, take it, go to Congress, fight for it.
OBAMA: That's what we've done, made some adjustments to
it, and we're putting it forward before Congress right now, a $4 trillion plan ...
ROMNEY: But you've been -- but you've been president four years ...
ROMNEY: You've been president four years. You said you'd cut the deficit in half. It's now four years later. We still have trillion-dollar deficits. The CBO says we'll have a trillion-dollar deficit each of the next four years. If you're re-elected, we'll get to a trillion-dollar debt. I mean, you have said before you'd cut the deficit in half. And this -- I love this idea of $4 trillion in cuts. You found $4 trillion of ways to reduce or to get closer to a balanced budget, except we still show trillion-dollar deficits every year. That doesn't get the job done. Let me come back and say, why is it that I don't want to raise taxes? Why don't I want to raise taxes on people? And actually, you said it back in 2010. You said, "Look, I'm going to extend the tax policies that we have now; I'm not going to raise taxes on anyone, because when the economy is growing slow like this, when we're in recession, you shouldn't raise taxes on anyone." Well, the economy is still growing slow. As a matter of fact, it's growing much more slowly now than when you made that statement. And so if you believe the same thing, you just don't want to raise taxes on people. And the reality is it's not just wealthy people -- you mentioned Donald Trump. It's not just Donald Trump you're taxing. It's all those businesses that employ one-quarter of the workers in America; these small businesses that are taxed as individuals. You raise taxes and you kill jobs. That's why the National Federation of Independent Businesses said your plan will kill 700,000 jobs. I don't want to kill jobs in this environment.
quote:I had posted in a thread before the debate (about Michelle saying debates made her nervous) that maybe she worried that he'd slip up and say what he was really thinking. When he said that, I laughed my head off. He almost made it to the end before it slipped.
"...everybody's getting their fair share, um doing their fair share."
'We Don't Believe Anybody Is Entitled to Success in This Country'
I never would have imagined we would have a sitting president be reelected by campaign against the success of Americans...to run down the American Dream...we are truly finished.
It is not about Obama, he is merely a manifestation of what we are as a nation now.
This thread really has made me laugh.
