Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus announced today that theme of the Republican National Convention's second night will be "We Built It" — a theme aimed at "highlight[ing] America's entrepreneurial strength and our people's incomparable work ethic," as well as extending the purposeful distortion of President Obama's "you didn't build that" line.
At a July 13th campaign rally in Roanoke, Virginia, Obama spoke candidly about the important role government funding plays in helping businesses succeed.
"Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive," Obama told attendees. "Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you've got a business — you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen."
Ironically, Obama's point is made by the very arena in which the convention is being held.
