“You Didn’t Build That:" Republican Criticisms Of Obama’s Economic Policy

At the RNC, President Barack Obama's "You didn't build that" quote is played on an almost endless loop. Democrats -- and many fact checkers -- say the comments are being taken out of context. But Republicans say it is indicative of a hostile attitude toward small business owners.

Mitt Romney says President Barack Obama does not understand the challenges facing small businesses and “job creators” in today’s economy. At the Republican National Convention, delegates and speakers have continuously referenced the president’s recent comments that “You didn’t build that.” We speak with two local Republican businessmen about the economic stakes in Election 2012.
