If you are an affirmative-action 7% black president, you didn’t do that, George Soros did that for you.

And just imagine, it’s NOT your mom and dad, your wife, husband or family, not your pastor or school teachers, no....

It was the friggin government!

Obama is a barkin at the moon crazy leftist.

The government, the IRS, the bloodless annoying bastards that everyone in business hates for the money sucking leeches they are. I’ve never heard a businessman say he owes it all to the stinking government.

Yep! All those roads were built by the 50% who pay no income tax and actually get money back!

But the American public is too stupid/greedy/lazy to understand this.

I dropped out of college because I could afford to support
myself and my family.

I never borrowed a single dime.

Everyone laughed, ripped me off, and then sued me.
My wife left and abandoned our 3 year old daughter with me.
She is now 22 and works for me.

I was attacked (repeatedly) by the state labor board, the EPA and Osha.

I had an employee steal my prototypes, drawings and customer
lists (sent them to China) and wound up in Federal court to get them back
at the cost of 1 million +.

In spite of that I survived.

And I will never know whom those invisible people were that were there
until 3-4 AM in the morning helping me do all the work.

Today I employ 100's of people and have 3 discrimination suits pending against me.

That is why Mr. Obama's comments are so offensive to me.

Kinda funny that when he says "If you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own," he is actually plagarizing someone else.

Normally, I don't get involved in and avoid any political discussions or arguments anymore, but this is over the line. This man is DANGEROUS and represents a direct threat to the well-being and existence of this nation. The people with money and/or any legislators who are behind this man are even more of a threat than he is. Anyone and everyone who put this man in place must be prosecuted after the fact.

The statements he has been making are analogous to statements by dictators prior to takeovers. He is going to start a civil war. He simply can not be excused for the lies and attempts at starting class warfare. I can not believe all of this is happening. Someone in leadership MUST have the backbone to stand up to this man and call him out NOW. Failure to come out publicly and stop this is going to lead to conflict.

And no, we don't need someone like Rush Limbaugh or other talk show hosts doing it because his only motive is to further talk-show programs. It has to be someone with a vested interest in the nation due to the strength of character that statesman will possess.

You're right Obama, someone with a business didn't build it. Almost always, the belief of the individuals in GOD made it happen. Belief in GOD helped build this nation, the businesses in it and the will and work ethic of the population inhabiting the land. How dare you point a finger at the businessman who builds a business and employes people and stir up those who made bad decisions in life leading to their lower station in life (refusal to study in school, lack of respect for authority, laziness, etc., ad nauseum) to have a hostile attitude toward those who employ them and give them a chance to make any money at all as opposed to stealing?

And, by the way, I no longer have a business and haven't had one for years and don't plan in putting in another one because government is so hostile to business (i.e. - Your drivel Saturday). As more and more Godless people like YOU come here (many illegally), they bring their Godless ideas just like YOURS here and we're going to have the same problems they had in the countries from which they came. Anti-God ideas destroy economies and nations. A statesman must stand up and ask you to stop opening your mouth and saying Godless things.

My husband and I started two businesses. The first one was assisted by my parents who helped us get a loan for the equipment - but other than that - we had no help at all. It was my husband going out everyday and explaining to potential customers what we did and why it would benefit them. Eventually we made many many millions and life was good until we got in an extended fight with the unions and also a group of former employees who were up to no good while taking our paychecks. During this time we also had to compete against the affirmative action scams - and in virtually every case that is what they were - scams.

The second business my husband started with zero help from anyone - well, other than me - and he made it happen by sheer personal drive. Needless to say, there are no unions or employees involved.

I hope certain misguided Freepers read this...this is no time to ignore the dire threat we are facing and sit home in November or cast a vanity vote for some 3rd party. It will take all we've got to beat this evil.

Great comment by Judson Phillips from another post on this subject:

What the hell does Barack Obama know about building a business?

What the hell does he know about building anything?

The only thing Barack Obama has ever built is a joint.

The government is always there, helping.....

Like with Solyndra - they didn’t waste $500 million of taxpayers money on their own - they had Obama helping them.

He should also tell that to his Hollywood pals and supporters.
Their movie career- they “didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”

Yes Fonda, De Niro, et al. your Oscar business- somebody else made that happen.

I am growing tired.

Tired of the bogus affermitive action law suits.

They fired me not cuz I gots caught stealing the company
laptops or punching out my coworker but cuz i is (take your pick):
(black, over 51 years old, to large to fit in my chair, company didn't provide a second desk to hold my Doritos and big gulp, manager tried to rape me some time around 5 - 6 maybe 7 months ago, couldn't come to work because of my second job, etc).

I’ll reiterate what Glenn Beck said on his radio show the other day. Mitt Romney *could* save the country. Barack Obama *will* destroy it.

This is an attempt to divide employers and employees. Won’t work.

As a matter of fact, it’s another backfire.

This election’s going to resemble 2010 more than 2008.

I was making fun of moonbat Elizabeth Warren’s claims of being an Indian. BO and Elizabeth Warren, both, said the same thing about business, and they, both, claim something about their personal backgrounds that’s controversial. The left are pros at creating controversy, among themselves.
