Excerpt from the socialist-in-chief speech yesterday in Virginia:
"If youve got a business -- you didnt build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didnt get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet."

The Government doesn’t provide freedom. The Constitution prohibits the Government from infringing upon freedom. He’s an idiot and has it backwards like most progressive thinkers. Oh, and my tax dollars, from my business and other businesses are what made those roads.
Obama can take a long walk off a short pier for all I care.
I'd hit on that(snorg!)
A second term would make liberals flee to Russia for relief.
Why does this jack ass keep braying?
Of course, the government creats NOTHING.
Yes, and the government, military or otherwise, couldn't have done anything without the money that funds them. That money came from taxes from the private sector. Wealth is not something that just ‘exists’, to be ‘equally distributed’. It takes human effort to create wealth from ideas and raw material. It used to be that in America anyone could expect to have a good shot at a piece of wealth if they came up with a good idea and worked hard. Now, we have obscured that connection, and it is threatening the very soul of the nation.
You got to be President, but you didn’t earn that. Somebody else made that happen.
Difference #101 ... romney would never say nor believe this.
I just texted my boss that line. I suppose his blood sweat and tears of building his practice to what it has become over the past 20 years, including 2 am emergencies, was someone else's doing.
They believe in an all powerful government, in part, because government is what makes them important. You will find many more narcissistic personalities among politicians on the left. Obama and his ilk don't think of themselves as government servants. They think of themselves as messiahs.
Close, it was developed FOR the military BY the universities.
With commies, there’s always an excuse not to give credit where credit is due.
Here, get a clue yourself. Personal attacks are discouraged at FR. Certainly not going to blow my brains out for you ~ I’d just guess that some time this afternoon you may need to find somewhere else to go threaten people.
The internet does pretty much what the telegraph did ~ for the operators! Sure, they dispatched messages ~ but they also gossiped among themselves. It’s only gotten better ~
here’s the problem in this election ~ the drones as you call them will continue to vote for obama.
These naked marxist can’t even hide behind themselves. Just as Maxine Waters admitted that their goal was to nationalize the oil industry.
Marxism just oozes out of’em.
If you have food stamps, a working American paid for it.
Its beyond comprehension that this man is in charge of anything
I think the main reason is Affirmative Action policies.
The government can not, and will not, owe up to creating a horrible unintended consequences. The same unintended consequences that yeilded us a bad case of B.O.
They have created a monster. If you think bad thoughts about him (obviously racist thoughts) he will wish you into the corn field.
Every red cent the government has, and any building road or anything else it has ever built, came from innovation and wealth created by the private sector.
