ROANOKE, Va. 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.
