First off he never said THAT statement. People are talking about his response, which was not "I want to spread the wealth around." It was "I want more small businesses to have the chance to be make $250,000 a year, faster. You would have not taken 15 years under my plan. And, by the way Even though you make more than $250,000, I am still cutting all capital gains taxes for every small business."
Here is the link:
Joe has had more interviews than Palin, because Joe is being used as a tool, just to talk about that perceived statement you mentioned. 95% of small business companies will benefit from Obama's proposed plan. Know how I know? Cause I heard it 9 million times. Doesn't mean I agree with the benefits of the plan, it just means that it is being talked about.
There are other things from both camps I would like talked about, but Obama's tax plan isn't one of them.
Oh...I'm sorry....I misquoted....But you also did not watch the whole clip.
At 4:42 in your link Obama says, "And I think when you spread the wealth around it's good for everybody."
I'm not saying it's the only thing he told Joe...But if you find a roach in your salad, it ruins the meal....He did say it. People aren't just making it up. It's not perceived....The crazy thing is people trying to ignore it...
