American Crossroads put a short clip of the “You didn’t build that” line on an iPad, showed it to small business owners and others, and videotaped the reactions. Crossroads says its Facebook posts on this subject have gotten 10 times more engagement than any other topic -- including Obamacare. A Crossroads poobah tells us: “It confirmed what people had always suspected.”
Paul Conner writes at The Daily Caller:
President Barack Obama’s “you didn’t build that” comment last Friday at a campaign stop didn’t set any Internet records for speed — it took almost four days for the phrase to spread. But none of that matters now to the Obama campaign who, through establishment media outlets, have been attempting damage control by peddling the idea that the remark was taken out of context.
Conservatives, however, have seized upon the phrase — some in creative ways.
