Lakoff on building "that"
Lakoff and Wehling weigh in (late, but better than never) on Obama's excerpt taken out of context: "You didn't build that." They agree with Obama's general strategy on emphasizing the public in creating the necessary conditions for private achievement. And that the regressives try to hide this public necessity through their unbalanced fixation of individual aggrandizement. See the rest, which is pretty much a rehash of Obama's own responses since. Lakoff has been saying this all along, so not sure if the Obama team is listening and finally getting on board. Let's hope so because it's working on those with half a brain and some education, despite the regressive attack on education and intelligence.
