The Republican National Committee mocked President Barack Obama on Friday, sending a cake to the Democratic National Committee with a backhanded message commemorating Obama’s upcoming birthday.
“You didn’t bake this,” reads text on the cake, which is vanilla with vanilla frosting, according to Yahoo! News. It’s a reference to Obama’s “you didn’t build that” remark last month, which he made while talking about the need to maintain investments in domestic infrastructure for the good of businesses.
“If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help,” Obama said. “There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet. … The point is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together.”
