Obama insults small business owners and job creators. What do you think about his open declaration?

Obama insults every hard working American. I see his implication, using bridges and roads that he is claiming the government helped everyone.
Obama is a pure schmuck. He's just finding a reason to levy more taxes by telling everyone who is working hard to succeed that they own more money to the government.
Obama's speech shows how out of touch he is with the hard working people of America.
None of the above

According to a speech Obama made Saturday, Americans didn't do anything they had help and aren't smart enough, clever enough, or have the initiative to do well without someone helping them.

Per Obama:
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.

    this is part of this rederick on the effect of the subliminal control of the people ,,,make his followers hate wealth , and praise the govt .

    thus dismantle the economy further ,,degrade the small businesses , which actually creates jobs and would shore up the economy ..

    his intent was well shown ...but many seen through his intent ,,,and hs sheeples are in defence mode and will defend hm ...though they havent a clue what he actually said ......
    divide & confuse is all he has left ......!

    and romney should just stand on this sucesses & release his records ..and say this is what the american people could accomplish as well .....!

    instead of it looking like he's hiding something ,,,,POBAMA did that quite well !

    I think I'm sick and tired of hearing about this -- although the rippling distortions are a good example of why some people shouldn't be allowed out without attendants.

    What he said is plainly true. No one gets rich or succeeds in this world without the help of others.

    He's correct.

    Teachers inspire more of our citizens than any other group.
    Bankers loan the money to expand a business
    Truckers use the roads and bridges of our land to deliver the products or drive your trucks over to perform your service

    He didn't lie or insult anyone, simply told the truth.

    Hand-in-hand with this bit of garbage on behalf of the POTUS, did you hear what he is saying about out-sourcing jobs? He is berating Romney for out-sourcing jobs, but you have to wonder what Obama is smoking. In a speech this weekend, Obama praised the GE model and CEO Immelt. He appointed Immelt to advisory committees and wants Immelt to give workshops on how to do business Obama style. Psssstttttttt, GE has 300,000 employees. Only 130,000 of those employees are Americans, the others are in the 277 plans in countries around the world. GE doesn't pay American income tax and the profits are kept out of the country for just that reason. So, not only is Obama lusting after the GE model of out-sourcing, he's also given stimulus money to mulitple foreign countries and stimulated growth in those foreign countries. What a great guy. NOT

    I don't consider that a real job..And before that? What makes him qualified to speak of job creation more than Romney?
  • Illjwamh SickOfB... 2012/07/17 01:46:19
    The fact that, even if he had never done anything whatsoever in the field (which I am not saying, but just for the sake of argument), he would still have one up on Romney who made his millions by taking peoples' jobs away.

    Oh, OK, you just want a nanny state with total government support and no job. I'm sure with your attitude we can arrange the no job and if you wait around long enough Obamass will have everyone on a leash and lapping up their pablum from the governmental spoon.

    That's funny. So you want to live off that land, right? Hunt and forage for food. Make your own clothing, make your own housing, provide your own heat, etc. For someone who doesn't want to work, you've chosen the most difficult way to live...how ironic.

    And you think that all you would need to do is house chores to live that lifestyle? Seriously? Don't get me wrong..I think that big government has complicated our way of life, so if your message is less government regulation and interference, I'd have to agree.

    You are right. Money can't buy happiness. The American dream can be whatever you want it to be. Some think nice cars, nice house, nice clothes is the American dream. Others have less materialistic dreams..sounds like your's is the later. May you find your American dream.
