U Didn't Build That: Obama Channels MC Hammer!

by at . Comments

Before Mitt Romney's 47 percent comment gave it some competition, President Barack Obama's "you didn't build that" was the political gaffe of the year.

Obama said it this summer in a speech he gave referring to business owners, trying to espouse the idea that behind individual success is government infrastructure.

Not a terrible argument, but dreadfully worded by all accounts, igniting a firestorm of controversy that Republican opponents use against him to this day.

It also spawned this amazing viral video! Holla!

The latest in a string of people with no particular affiliation using clips of a political candidate's words to craft Internet classics, Hugh Atkin created this one.

An Australian lawyer and fan of political satire, Atkin hilariously took Obama's "You didn't build that" quote and spliced it together with other clips of the Prez.

The video, "U Didn't Build That," is set to MC Hammer's "U Can't Touch This," with dance moves and amazingly detailed lyrical excerpts to boot.

If there's one thing people across the political spectrum can agree on, it's that this is freaking hysterical. "U Didn't Build That" should be his official theme song.

I also have tuned into MSNBC in the past week. This is UNBELEIVABLE! How can a person not hate Democrats after 5 minutes of this program. They are nothing but racist belligerent people. Nothing but lies! Romney is a racist- Romney camp is falling apart Romney is down by 20. OMG is it possible a country can overcome the effect of any result.

The real truth is that many do not want a job or to have success, what they want is for the rich to suffer. This is what motivates the left. They are resentful devils.

@ Roo...Whoa! It's nasty out there today...ain't it? Like walkin' among the land mines! Trolls are a bitch, but at least when ya know the truth you can have the tempered strength necessary to stand back and watch these misguided Obamanites slash 'n burn our economy. Just dodgin' their lame arguments alone are enough! Would enjoy a nice, quiet political conversation that makes sense with an amiable person worth chatting with! Gosh! It wouldn't even have to be just politics either! :)

@@Roo-Color me strange but I would rather Romney not tell me anything than tell me lies. The problem with America today? You go strictly by what another tells you and how Smoooooooth they can make it sound! Me? I really don't give a "Fiddlers Fuck" about talk- I want proof! I want to see if you have been down this road before! We have an over abundance of Bullshit! Don't need anymore! Romney- is a FIXER! Not a talker! HE TURNS A PROFIT! He gets the job done and sometimes it ain't pretty! I have lived my life! I want the same for my kids minus the 16 Trillion debt! I have an idea- why don't you work your ass off today, I'll party all night then you give me half of what you have! This is our perception of Obama! Do you understand the backlash of an Obama win? Look at this for what it is! Turn on MSNBC and tell me- will all be forgiven when it's over?

Seriously is the only argument Republicans keep spewing is the bs about people on welfare? Omfg seriously people. You know most of the people on welfare HAVE jobs you twits. My husband and I have two kids ages 9 & 11. I am a stayathome mom (by choice mind u after working since I was 16) and my husband works 35hrs a week at $10/hr and without food stamps to help us we'd be hurting much more than we are now. Between rent and utilities and phone bills and school uniforms etcetera, we're still barely able to have anything left. The $400 a month for food helps tremendously. People (Republicans especially from what I've seen) need to seriously get their facts straight. I've seen his paycheck stubs and he's paid almost as much in taxes as he gets on his check to take home. So excuse us, but I fail to see how making us pay MORE and trying to belittle us by calling us names for having
FoodStamps is being 'better than us'?

Yea people want to work they just aren't DUMB enough to think doing the EXACT same thing will get different results. Saying I'm going to cut taxes and hope on a prayer that will create jobs is NOT a plan! Hes not even putting any stipulations on the tax breaks. Like u have to hire x amount of employees to keep the tax break. Nope its just here u go hopefully u now will create jobs and not pocket that tax break money. Gee this plan makes me feel so confident. Are u kidding me?

@ the truth- your ignorant ass wouldn't know the truth if it was stuck up your ass. Take those numbers of yours and stick those to! Obama is trying to strangle the middle class as his smug black ass shoots the shit with talk show host! America has been tricked by an phony who wants to redistribute wealth as he studies the message of Reverend Wright ! He wants to steal it from one and give to another! That's the sum of it! How stupid can desperate people be! Get him the hell out of Washington.
