New Romney Video Omits Passage Apparently Agreeing With Obama

The Romney campaign came out with a new video today highlighting Mitt Romney’s attack yesterday in Irwin, PA on President Obama for saying “if you’ve got a business you didn’t build that, someone else made that happen.” But the Romney video edits a a portion of Romney’s speech in which he seems to agree with the broader context of the Obama’s remarks, saying people didn’t make it on their own.

“He said this, ‘If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.’ That somebody else is government in his view. He goes on to describe the people who deserve the credit for building this business, and of course he describes people who we care very deeply about, who make a difference in our lives: schoolteachers, firefighters, people who build roads. We need those things. We value schoolteachers, firefighters, people who build roads. You really couldn’t have a business if you didn’t have those things, but you know, we pay for those things. The taxpayers pay for government. It’s not like government just provides those to all of us and we say ‘Aw, thank you, government for doing those things.’ No, in fact, we pay for them, and we benefit from them, and we appreciate the work that they do, and the sacrifices that are done by people who work in government, but they did not build this business.”
