Obama: "If youíve got a business -- you didnít build that. Somebody else made that happen."
whitehouse.gov ^ | July 13, 2012 | Barack Obama

Posted on 07/14/2012 3:17:41 PM PDT by BarnacleCenturion

Excerpt from the socialist-in-chief speech yesterday in Virginia:

"If you’ve got a business -- you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet."

Obama's now taking pages from Elizabeth Warren speeches.

How convenient. Using the internet as an example.

He is truly an economic retard. How anyone can equate him with Romney is astonishing.

The Internet was born out of the Pentagon’s DARPA, as an email vehicle for scientists to communicate. Businessmen came in and made it into the World Wide Web, a whole different animal.

RE: "...look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own."

Hey, I've supported Sweeny's Pub for years, and often I didn't get there on my own. Marge drove me.

"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. The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet."

Like all socialists, he can't make the simple distinction between debt and responsibility. You owe a debt to your family (and I mean this in a generational-spanning sense; your ancestors and immediate family) for helping you learn how to, say... play the kazoo. If you're a prodigy kazoo player playing at the Met, you thank those that taught you and inspired you. If you're a crummy kazoo player, it's not their responsibility for your failings. It's yours. The abdication of responsibility through the muddling of that principle with that of debt is the liberal socialist way. It's a demeaning of words and ideas. It's the slow, constricting crush of thought.

Not only did Obama ride the short bus to school, he licked the windows. That’s why we can’t have his school records, I guess............

Elizabeth Warren Video: One of the Great Teaching Tools on Liberalism
http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2011/09/22/elizabeth_warren_video_one_of_the_great_teaching_tools_on_liberalism

Rush “Somebody needs to read to her a story...Somebody needs to read the story of the Little Red Hen. It’s an old Russian folktale, by the way. The Little Red Hen finds a grain of wheat and asks for help from the other farmyard animals to plant it. However, no animal will help her. At each stage of the work there’s planting, harvesting, threshing, milling the wheat into flour, baking the flour into bread, all of that. The hen again asks for help from the other barnyard animals — and, again, none of them will help.

Finally the hen has done it all on her own, completed her task and asks who will help her eat the bread, and this time everybody volunteers! But she says, “Nope. No one helped me, you don’t get any bread,” and she eats it with her chicks, leaving none for anyone else.”

Hopefully, we’ll be able to store our seed corn for a more bright future. Unfortunately, the majority feel like Obama, they are entitled to your efforts. “Property is theft.” so say the ‘Progressives’.

“There’s one serious flaw in this argument. How come, if we all have the “blessings” of government, ...we all have roads, we all live among other people we can hire as workers, the military protects everyone etc. , why then isn’t EVERYONE rich?”

Can I quote you?

THE PRESIDENT: Now, before I finish, can I say, by the way, that some of you have been standing for a while and I see a couple folks slumping down a little bit. Make sure you’re drinking water. Bend your knees. Don’t stand up too straight. The paralegals will be — the paralegals? (Laughter.) You don’t need lawyers. (Laughter.) The paramedics will be coming by, so just give folks a little bit of room, they’ll be fine. This happens at every event.

AUDIENCE MEMBER: We love you, Obama!
