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."

The internet was originally the concept of scientists at various universities who had email and chat functions (kind of a crude intranet) on their universities’ computer and wanted to communicate and share data. The next step was DARPANET, developed by the Defense Advanced Projects Administration in northern Virginia. But it was essentially private enterprise that recognized the enormous commercial possibilities of connected computers and ran with it. If we had continued to wait for government to roll it out, we’d all still be on dialup AOL 2.0 and consider ourselves lucky. ONLY competition and the promise of some payoff stirs humans to strive and innovate.

“If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that.”

A short expression of Marxism. The collective owns everything including the efforts and aspirations of the individual. No wonder he sees nothing threatening about Hugo.

But of course as one of our friends points out, then the failures are owned by Nanny too. She’s a little shy about confessing that.

He’s always been given everything because he threatens people. He is Affirmative Action run amok.

I have two businesses. And yes, I built them both from the ground up. Obama sure didn’t have anything to do with either of them.

I put these businesses together with my blood sweat and tears and the support of my beautiful wife. I’ll be damned if I let some arrogant pr!ck in the White House destroy all that I’ve worked for over the years.

"Is this a satire article?"

Well, yes.

In the sense that everything coming from "whitehouse.gov" is unintentionally self-satirical.

No, citizen, you have it all wrong. Failure is caused by greedy businessmen, probably like you. Those unwilling to submit, I mean unwilling to work for the common good, yeah, that's it.

Perhaps a few years at a re-education camp are in your future.

Obama says...

Your success is on the back of others...

Your success is not you own...

Your success is at the expense of others...

Your success has disadvantaged others...

FUBO

You have to hate everything the LIAR in chief has to say.

Obama’s quote should be part of a Romney ad: Obama’s attitude towards business.

OK, I'll sit here and wait until Obama gives me a Business.

I think “Business” is Obamaspeak for Disability, Unemployment, Food Stamps and Welfare.

If that's the case, Obama is a combination of Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and Donald Trump.

Is this a satire article?

That was my thought exactly and I paged back up to see if this was a John Semmens semi-news article. But no, our economically and fiscally illiterate president really said that. The man is an utter fool as well as a liar.

I saw a Buck Ofama bumper sticker on a truck today. Was that you?

These latest quotes from O show the following humor is not exaggerated at all. In fact it might be an understatement... NK and USA Leaders
