Obama: When I Said "You Didn't Build That," I Really Meant Something Totally Different

If the President is such a great communicator, how is it that he can't manage to say what he means? Are we supposed to translate and parse everything he says to find out what he's really saying? Call me snarky, but if a man can't say what he means in plain words, he doesn't belong in the White House.

How come you have such low comprehension? President Obama was referring to infrastructure when he said "you didn't build that".

Watch the entire clip you silly goose.

"roads AND bridges"------"you didn't build that" makes NO sense grammatically. Your socialist hero revealed his true feelings here---you should celebrate! You guys are out of the Marxist closet now. DEAL WITH IT!

Barack Hussein Obama has never been a great communicator. In over fifty speeches, he could not persuade anywhere near a majority of people that Obamacare was a good thing.

The problem for Obama is that in his Roanoake speech, he DID say EXACTLY what he means.

His challenge NOW is to convince the American people OTHERWISE if he wants ANY hope of a second term.

SSHG: Obama's problem is exacerbated by the fact that his socialist sounding speech is backed up by his socialist policies. I don't see a way out for him on this.

Everything Obama is doing is laying the groundwork for total socialism. Obamacare is intended to lead toward single-payer healthcare. The stimulus was largely a payout to secure votes for a second term when Obama will complete his destruction of the free enterprise system. His 'doing nothing" about jobs is to get people dependant on government.

Barack Hussein Obama's entire body of work (and lack of) is that of a statist---I'm not going to get into a argument about semantics---i.e. the definition of a socialist.

Isn't it obvious?  Of course he didn't mean what he said four times while off script a few weekends ago!  What the president genuinely meant is written right in the teleprompter, after his messaging team spent more than a week figuring out how to "clarify" his comments:

He's slipping, guys.  Historically, Team Obama has been much faster at turning the truth on its head.  Time's Mark Halperin says The One finds himself on the defensive:
