This is coming from a complete dumbass who never owned or managed a business. His VP is a dumbass too.
From the Washington Times.
Barack Obama addressed supporters in Roanoke, Virginia on Friday afternoon and took a shot at the business community. Obama dismissed any credit business owners give themselves for their success:
“There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me — because they want to give something back. They know they didn’t — look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something — there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there. (Applause.)
“If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. 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.”
All you business entrepreneurs who invested your money, sweat, sleepless nights, and endless hours at the grindstone to make your business work: You didn’t create your own success, somebody else made that happen.
The internet was invented by a long line of computer programmers and engineers, not by Al Gore. As a matter of fact, the internet was originally intended as a tool for national security communications and military applications, not for civilians. That all changed when internet service providers; companies like PSINet, UUNET, and Portal Software, jumped in to create a market for personal computers.
Small business owners, the ones whom Obama lumps into the evil rich category, are pretty pissed at the way they’ve been treated by Obama and his merry band of socialists.
Obama demonizes free-market enterprise because he hates it. Capitalism and earned wealth chafe his scrawny ass. He was schooled in Marxism at an early age and has done as much damage to freedom, democracy, and the capitalist- based economy as he possibly can.
This miserable failure that occupies the White House hasn’t done much in his life to earn anything. The Nobel Prize he got from a group of addlebrained Norwegians wasn’t earned, but they handed it to him anyway.
November cannot come soon enough.
