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."

What a bloated egotistical idea of what government ought to be about.

Government is there to keep a minimum of order and defend the country. That’s it. Businesses and people do very well when government is competent at that.

The nanny is nagging at us about how much she’s needed. Go away nanny.

He's projecting his own complete and total helplessness onto everyone else.

In a small way, he has a point. ALL endeavors are based on past achievements. ALL, except perhaps the very first few in man's history.

That said, he's full of crap otherwise, because generation of a business takes a man or woman, a vision, bravery, and hard work. A business is NOT otherwise created by government, and it does NOT spontaneously arise.

So, Obama is maybe 2% right.... and 98% WRONG.

It’s beyond comprehension that this man is in charge of anything - much less our treasury and everything else he’s muscled his way into - now including the SCOTUS.

Can it get worse???? I’m afraid a second term would make his first term look conservative.

IIRC, the internet was developed by the military and then was further used by universities. It was only, relatively, recently that it was expanded to business and other uses.

Well, if that’s what he believes, it explains all of his actions. All that (alleged) education and no wisdom.

lol. the white house included shouted remarks from the adoring masses.

I wonder if they included the sex noises that they made later.

AUDIENCE MEMBER: We love you, Mr. President!

THE PRESIDENT: I love you back. (Applause.)

Obumbler channeling Isaac Newton (who has never heard of) is appalling. The correct quotation is “If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.”

Obastard thinks the “giant” is government. Nothing could be further from the truth.
