It’s people like commenter ob my Facebook page that make me nervous for November and for this country:
Left side comment:
“Bla bla bla… read between the lines people!”
Right side comment:
“There is more to this. People that do not like him will hear what they want to hear. Everyone needs to read between the lines. That was not meant literally…. too many racist out there and they always use the Muslim card… I am tired of listening and reading this.”
Wow. We’ve got a triple bonus of scary here folks. We’re supposed to read between the lines in what Obama said, it’s not to be taken literally. Also, we’re racists and we’re playing the Muslim card. Uh, ok. Dear useful idiot, exactly what are we supposed to be reading between the lines of Obama’s statements, pray tell? Please enlighten us or perhaps get a clue yourself.
FYI: The meme is already taking over. It even has it’s own site.
Here’s the clip and the transcript is below it.
There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me — because they want to give something back. They know they didn’t — look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something — there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there. (Applause.)
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.
So, please explain to me what we’re missing between these lines?
The same commenter when asked what we were supposed to read between Obama’s lines had this to say:
Pro-Tip: If you’re going to make claims in an open forum, you had better have your argument ready to go when we call you on it. “Not my Job” – Hell, that could be an Obama campaign slogan.
