THEY GOT THE MEMO

The GOP convention's Tuesday theme is "We Built It," and nearly every speaker is hitting that note.

A sampling:

___

"Mitt Romney was not handed success. He built it." — Ann Romney, wife of the nominee.

___

"No guarantees. No government there to hold your hand. Just a dream and the desire to do better. President Obama doesn't get this. He can't fix the economy because he doesn't know how it was built." — House Speaker John Boehner.

___

"They tell us we didn't build our businesses. That somebody else made it happen. They tell us not to dream, but to settle. You and I know America is better than that." — Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval.
