O thinks Govenment owns it all and the rest of us are lousy...

President Obama, in a speech to supporters, suggested business owners owe their success to government investment in infrastructure and other projects -- saying if youve got a business, you didnt build that.
Obamas comment Friday during a campaign stop in Roanoke, Va

There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me because they want to give something back, the president said. If youve been successful, you didnt get there on your own. You didnt get there on your own. Im 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.

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 youve got a business, you didnt build that. Somebody else made that happen, he said. The Internet didnt get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.

If there are a whole lot of wealthy people who agree with him have them write the big checks to IRS and put their money where their mouths are. Redirect all of the millions in campaign contributions to IRS and the deficit. Yep not a single one will do this because they are all talk and no action. When you make a few million on one event you can afford to be free wheeling with someone elses money.

Yep all of the businesses were created because the Governmonet gave them something. Where does he think the money came from to build his all m9ighty infrastructure? Taxes paid by these same guys he wants blamed for success. Did he pass economics 101? Think not. This quack needs to be gone. VOTE HIM OUT IN 20212. No more!!!
