Skip to comments.Obama: "If youíve got a business -- you didnít build that. Somebody else made that happen."

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."

Perhaps a few years at a re-education camp are in your future.
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...
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.
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.
I wish 0bama’s life depended on his ability to build a business.
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?
I’ll take, “Ready to implode”, for $1,000, Alex.
He sounds like Elizabeth “Pow Wow Chow” Warren
Same talking points
This really is the USSA
One of the jobs my great grandfather had was in spite of government. He worked for the Purple gang during prohibition.
My other great grandfather started as a surveyor for a company hanging the first long distance phone and power lines across Michigan’s upper peninsula. When he reached the end of the line he went back to where he started and went to work as a lineman. Lineman / electrician is what he did for the rest of his life.
No surprise, Obama is a fascist.He will establish a totalitarian government if he can. He is well on his way.
It's all so clear, now!
Obama is an outright moron on a good day - he’s got the IQ of an earthworm. I’ve got a boat load of relatives who came to America and built their own businesss all by themselves.
The way socialists see things, nobody ever did anything for themselves. Which is technically true. Unless you live in the wilderness of course. But using their devious logic, since people who live in societies rely on others, whatever you own belongs to everybody else. So if you worked hard, saved, invested, and found yourself after a long period of deferred gratification, with a million bucks or so, you really don’t own it. Because you couldn’t have done it without the help of other people. So let Big Government take care of that “unearned” dough you accumulated...we’ll redistribute it (Obama’s own words) to the right people...you awful capitalist pig you.
Sadly, no. I don’t have a truck right now.
These are the words of a man who’s never built something, never taken a risk, never sweated having to make a payroll in his life. I lost a long time partner position back in 2007 at age 47. With nowhere to go I started my own business from scratch - no partners, no investors, no loans... just me (and my family who supported me every step of the way. My wife was my office manager) I gambled everything I owned - my retirement, my house, everything. Talk about fear and stress- it’s a situation he’ll never know. But risk and hard work, prayer and help from my Savior (who really gets all the credit) paid off. For him and his kind to try and take some credit for what I and my wife sweat blood for is really just breathtaking. These people are truly evil.
“sounds like Elizabeth Pow Wow Chow Warren”
You beat me to it. Obama, Warren, Alinsky - all the dems - they are all reading from the same Marxist playbook. Their looniness is incredible.
These were her remarks from almost a year ago:
I hear all this, you know, Well, this is class warfare, this is whatever. No. There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own nobody.
You built a factory out there? Good for you. But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police-forces and fire-forces that the rest of us paid for. You didnt have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory and hire someone to protect against this because of the work the rest of us did.
Now look, you built a factory and it turned into something terrific, or a great idea. God bless keep a big hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is, you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along.
Actually, Gubmint created nothing. Whether it be weapons, rockets, internet, whatever, they contracted out to PRIVATE companies to develop what the Government wanted....then, they chose (whether honestly or corruptly is another matter). It was a small car-maker who developed the Jeep in 90 days before World War II. It was a luxury boat maker named Higgins in New Orleans who developed the Higgins Boats. It was private initiative that led to all the modern conveniences we rely upon today.
On second thought, I’m seeing an Obama-Warren ticket here.
Amen to that!
We run a family business. Our success is OUR OWN.
I’m seeing red right now. Comments like this from the leader of your nation is enough to make you want to give up all hope, especially when people actually AGREE with him.
Nothing is going to change the direction this country is headed until all the hard workers go broke and quit trying. It’s going to have to crash and burn so that the idiots who believe life is a handout finally have to work to physically survive. Nothing else can change this. Which really depresses me, because all of us who work will have to lose everything right along with them and the only thing we will be able to do is shake our heads in sadness and say “I told you so.”
And what’s truly amazing is, his followers believe this crap.
I don’t see any mention of Al Gore.
So I guess in this frame of reference it makes perfect sense that Obama would say something like this as that is the prism through which he views the world.
"Not every government program works the way its supposed to. And frankly, government cant solve every problem. If somebody doesnt want to be helped, government cant always help them."
See, when government fails to solve a problem, it's the people's fault, not the government's.
The things he refers to are available to all Americans. However, only those who get off their asses and do something with their lives are the ones with whom he has a problem.
Where did the funds come from for the government reasearch and investment—Tax dollars I presume
And Al Quaida built Obama.
I’ve built my business is spite of the government.
At least with Romney, he doesn't speechwise crap on Republicans (remember his "grow up" remark?) and he hasn't killed the Messiah's butt to the extent that McCain did (remember this?).
What a vile, little, unAmerican poseur this Marxist is.
I guess we owe King George an apology, then. We should’ve just kept the government we had already in 1776.
Someone made bricks. Which means that every building made of bricks was made by the person that made bricks.
Yea, that is logical....
Welcome to FreeRepublic.com, FReeper.
I have to admit I am damn happy to hear someone else is going to build my business for me. I was taking a nap on this hot Carolina afternoon and was woken up to drive 45 minutes away to show a house to prospective buyers. I’d like Obama or Moochelle or maybe someone from HUD to do my work for me.
Spreading the wealth around no longer will do. Now Obamugabe says it was never truly yours to begin with.
These stories are repeated, or should I say rhythemed and rhymed, throughout our history. Most of America do not know the stories of the men and women who enslave themselves to a business for a future payoff while betting the farm to make it happen.
President Calvin Coolidge: The business of America IS business.
I tried to satrt a billion dollar business but failed, so that’s the government’s fault. They should replay me a billion dollars for causing my failure.
