Funny, thanks.............

QuoteQuote:
So either (a) Romney is an un-American collectivist who thinks the government should confiscate Michael Phelps' gold medals because community tax dollars funded the swimming pools that allowed him to compete, or (b) Romney's is thoroughly full of crap for attacking President Obama for saying that people who start businesses got help along the way.

Given that Romney himself now admits that he agrees with President Obama, I'll go with b.

Colbert actually showed a clip of Romney saying the same exact things Obama did, at a campaign event, and about business.

The clip Colbert shows from earlier this year is amazing. Romney said exactly the same thing as the President. Perhaps a spot could be made with editing of that clip, just to demonstrate how bad this edit job is. But then that might be hard to do in a few seconds.

Obama’s comment observed that businesses rely on public infrastructure funded by taxpayer dollars. A sentiment Romney appeared to agree with.

Colbert threw to a clip of Romney during a campaign appearance in Ohio, where he acknowledged that a lot of help – from teachers, banks, roads and bridges – goes into making a successful business.

“Hey Mitt, I know you’re the one that’s running, but can I give you a little hint?” Colbert suggested. “If your entire stump speech, your entire campaign is based on something the other guy said, whenever possible, try not to agree with him!

Of course, as Mother Jones' Tim Murphy points out, even if Romney's argument was right, it doesn't explain why he sent millions of federal dollars to wealthy Utahns to do things like building roads through ski resorts.
