UNBELIEVABLE … Barack Obama, “If you’ve got a business … you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen”
Barack Obama’s War on Business …
WOW, if you knew nothing about Barack Obama all one would need to do is listen to the below VIDEO and understand exactly why the economy is in the sad stated of affairs. If you are a business owner, you should be petrified. if you are an American, you should be appalled.
From the Washington Times, President Barack Obama addressed supporters in Roanoke, Virginia on Friday and took a shot at the business community dismissing any credit business owners give themselves for their success … ”If you’ve got a business … you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”
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 those hours, business models and hard work meant nothing according to Barack Obama. It was not your hard work that made your business successful, it was someone else. This President need s to go in 2012.
