GOP running mate Paul Ryan says President Obama's "you didn't build that" remark explains why the U.S. recovery has been so sluggish.

At a campaign rally in Roanoke, Va., the Wisconsin congressman said it revealed Obama's "mindset" of favoring big government over private entrepreneurs — and shows why his policies have failed to create jobs.

Last month, at a Roanoke fire station, Obama said successful businesses depend on things like bridges and schools that governments created — and said to successful business owners, "You didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen." Since then, Mitt Romney and his running mate have denounced the comment as anti-business. Obama's campaign insists his words have been taken out of context.
