Obama :If you are successful "You didn't build that".
Since being selected, Obama has become more and more comfortable in communicating to the American people especially the small business community how he truly feels about the private sector, jobs and "fairness". The term fairness has been used a lot by Obama over the past few years. When Obama talks about fairness, he's really talking about the need for the redistribution of wealth in America. The word fairness is just easier to disgust to a certain percentage of the American peopl, so that is why he uses that word so much. Obama was in Roanoke Virgina yesterday on the campaign trail. You would think he would be talking about his economic record right? Wrong, he was actually demonizing successful people, small business owners, by presenting them in the light as being arrogant and them somehow not really being responsible for creation of their own businesses and their success. Just listen to the contempt in Obama's voice.
This rant against business owners coming from a guy who was just a few years ago was a Community Organizer on the south side of Chicago. There are a lo to smart people in the country, that is the only factual comment Obama made in his class warfare stump speech, but all the smart people in the country don't go out and start businesses. This notion that government had a role in helping people succeed with their businesses is absurd. Government is one of the biggest hurdles to people starting business in America. If the entrepreneurship spirit could be symbolized as being a fire then the government is the symbol of water. For Obama to say that small business people think they are so smart is an insult. What are they suppose to think, they are dumb? What person would say that they are dumb or not smart? Our society has been made better through innovation and technology in which the government did no provide. It's tens of thousands of companies which at one point stated out small and with an idea that over time have given us what we have today. Listening to Obama speak about small business owners was like listening to Hugo Chavez or Fidel Castro. Why would any business owner even think about expanding their business and putting their resources at risk, when they have a dictator who thinks so little of them? So if the owners of their business didn't build their businesses, who did? Was it the Small Business fairy and her magic wand who did it? And to think, people actually elected this guy. I have to recheck that many smart people comment I made.
