Republican Party on Corporations
Obama did utter the words 'You didn't build that,' but the full context of his remarks makes it clear he was saying taxpayer-funded public support "gave you some help" to succeed in business.
Obama, July 13: "If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody invested in roads & bridges. If you've got a business--you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen.."
The Obama campaign says the word "that" in the phrase "you didn't build that" refers to roads and bridges [but the clumsy grammar allows for misinterpretation]. There is no room for misinterpretation, however, in Obama's summary statement: "When we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together."
