Excuse Us Mr. President, We Did Build It...

Forgive the Picture of Truth - I Just wasn't In a Politically Correct Mood Today!

Finally people are beginning to get it. That President Obama really believes government is the engine behind job creation. That the business(s) that people created and built was the result of somebody  else building it for them.

Of course this "somebody else" would be government. Can there be any question but what this President is all about building the government infrastructure and creating government (non productive) jobs to support the private sector that after all doesn't build a thing by itself?

POWERLINE - The Romney campaign has been heavily pressing their “you didn’t build that” attacks for the past ten days and Wednesday is their biggest push yet with events with small business owners in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Virginia, Ohio, Iowa, Florida, Missouri, North Carolina, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Mexico, and Nevada. …

In events at small businesses in locations as varied as Waukesha, Wis. to Palm Beach, Fla. to Columbus, Ohio, entrepreneurs will express their anger at the “you didn’t build that, somebody else made that happen” line.

Lou Ramos, a small business owner from Tampa, will be at his local event. He owns an information technology and computer training company called Value Enterprise Solutions, Inc. and he said the president’s comments made him “almost throw up when I heard it.”

Ramos is a 64 year old Hispanic veteran, serving in the military from 1973-97, including two tours at the Pentagon, and he said he did read and watch all of the president’s comments in context, not just the two sentences continually highlighted by the campaign.

“I heard the whole thing and I read it,” Ramos told ABC News, mentioning he did like Obama when he spoke at the Democratic National Convention in 2004. “I heard the whole thing…The guy was talking sincere…This guy thinks success is about government hand outs and not perseverance.”


As could be expected, and rightfully so small business owners are taking issue with the President idiotic and irrational views.

[Former Raleigh mayor and North Carolina GOP chairman Tom Fetzer] read the speech the President gave earlier this month in Roanoke, Virginia word for word during the event, to underscore they weren’t taking it out of context.

“If you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own,” he read.

But it was the line, “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that, somebody else made that happen,” that offended so many Americans.

“I didn’t take it out of context, I just, I think it was a jab. I don’t know why,” Snoopy’s co-owner Larry Cerilli said.

From a group out of Tampa Florida the same rational sentiments being expressed by those living in the real world.

I don't know if this President really lives in the make believe land of rainbows and unicorns or not. I suspect he doesn't. But for a man supposedly brilliant beyond question, at lest in the eyes of the progressive left, to utter such words of foolishness should cause every American to seriously question this man's ability, and capabilities to govern this nation with all its challenges and complexities.

Certainly the progressives will remind us of the many, some inexcusable failings of the GWB administration. Their concerns over GWB's shortcomings are, or rather were justifiable. It is HOWEVER now almost four years into the Obama administration and government dependency continues to grow, up by nearly 25%.. This, combined with the now stated belief  by the President ( in his own words and in a moment of  personal honesty)  that individual initiative and perseverance, often combined with the business owner going without as their business grows and they provided jobs and income for others, is reason enough to scare all Americans and cause them to consider voting for anybody but Obama. Regardless of their current or heretofore party affiliation.

Simply put, irrespective of any other consideration, the President's most recent (and sincere) enunciation of his philosophy and beliefs deserves rejection by the American people. Their vote to remove him from office in Jovember of 2012 would be completely justified.

  1. .

    Murdoch Media/Fox Networks know Mr Obama was talking about 'roads and bridges'. You do not care that Murdoch Media/Fox Networks are blatantly lying to _you_! It is a lie you want to be true so you knowingly choose to side with the liar.

    An amazing thing is that you willingly and ignorantly believe the bull sh!t from Murdoch Media/Fox Networks that’s handed to gullible, low-information folks like you, and then parade your ignorance as though it’s something to be proud of. Is there any wonder why OMitt Rmoney and the RepublicanT Party continue to play this losing stratagem? Please keep at it.

    What does this say about _YOU_? You are willing to allow such illegitimate deceitfulness. Why would any honest people ever want to join ‘your side, if you are willing to align yourself with flat-out blatant liars?’

    Integrity; you either have it or you don't! And _YOU_ do not have ethics, values, or integrity.

  2. And your BS straight from the land of rainbows and unicorns is what Ema...? Keep being the good sheeple you are Ema, never question the One, or the progressive goose stepping idiocy that takes the nation ever closer. To the edge of the cliff.

    Whining becomes you Ema. Keep on goose stepping on cue from the One.

  3. .

    "Whining becomes you Ema." Pointing out the truth is whining? As long as one tells lies about a person, then one can expect to have one's honor and integrity challenged.

    Your defending a lie rests on situational ethics; the ends justify the means. For you "to utter such words of foolishness should cause every American to seriously question your ability, and capabilities to" be an honest broker of the truth.

  4. everyone at LCR and Rational Nation has to look at this stupendous commercial put together by Senator Scott Brown of MA.

    It is reminiscent of the 'Morning in America' ads by Ronald Reagan in 1984.

    And it reveals the anti-business bias of President Obama and Brown's Mass. Senate opponent Elizabeth Warren better than anything else I have seen or read over the past 3 years.

    We can't afford 4 more years of President Obama and even 1 day of Senator Elizabeth Warren.


  5. If big government is such a lean mean job creation machine, why is unemployment so dismal and it was even worse when the Dems had control of BOTH houses, so it's not the evil obstructive Republicans either. If this man could think logically, which I truly don't believe he can or thinks we can't (I'm betting the latter), he would see the fallacy in his stupid and pathetic statement.
