Are Republican Completely Clueless? They are having their ‘We Built It’ Convention Party Inside Arena Built with Government Dollars.

Of course Repbulicans are clueless, that's why the picked Willard.
This is a non-issue, move along.

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.

a July 13th campaign rally in Roanoke, Virginia, Obama spoke candidly

about the important role government funding plays in helping businesses


"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.

"[T]he stadium where the GOP will be announcing 'We Built This!' was financed primarily by the government," writes The Daily Dolt.

    I have another opinion
    Financed by the government? Where did the goobermint get the dineros? Taxpayers?

    Real live human beings that work and send their hard earned dollars to the goobermint?

    The arena was built by a British construction firm, Architect and structural engineer are both American private sector companies,..... so tell me again how the arena was built with Goobermint dollars

    62% of the money used to build the arena was government money. If the organization cannot fund their own business, which includes the arena, they shouldn't be in business in the first place. Isn't that what conservatives are always preaching?

    And, the "We Built this not the government stance" of the Republicans looks silly in a building that was MOSTLY build with government funds, dontcha think?

    Did they use the windfall profits from the USPS and AMTRAK?,..... oops.
    It was the STATE goobermint,... NOT the Feds.
    And again,... WHERE did the goobermint get the money?

    I see, State Government money is fine to use to fund your I-built-this-myself business, but federal government money is not. Good to know.

    You're missing the obvious point which is was President Obama said in the first place, they did not build it without help. Did they build the roads going to this area? No. They used roads they did not pay for with private money.

    You can't logically win this argument. Saying the money came from tax payers doesn't change the fact that they did not build the arena without government help, just like President Obama said in the first place.
