Why is it that it’s only the “successful” businesses that had this help?
Doesn’t he know that a majority of new businesses fail?
Don’t you think they had some government help in that failing?
It’s also how affirmative action people behave on the job, except it’s “someone else do that!”
Obama owes his success to Frank Marshall Davis.
The Turtle-on-the-Fence-Post-in-Chief didn't get there by himself, the enemies of America helped him all along the way.
They didn't create it so that "companies could make money", idiot.
They created it to communicate during times of war.
They didn't know what to do with it, otherwise.
It took Netscape and Berners-Lee and Mark Andreesen and countless others to make it into what it is today.
Boy is this the truth. Obama could not have prepared his fraudulent birth record. A whole lot of people needed to help.
Well done, Laz!
this is some SERIOUSLY good stuff
can anyone get this to Rush, Hannity, Beck, Wilcow, et.al?
this needs to go viral
Obama is a blood sucking tick. Why wouldn’t he think the world revolves around parasitical government?
Excellent. But instead of three unearned “successes,” you could make it a dozen. Or fifty. Or a hundred. Or one for every day in his misbegotten life.
No, the government created the Internet so wired digital communications could continue during nuclear war. Then, nobody imagined it could be so profitable. Private business commandeered the standardized protocols to make money.
Facilitating business should not be confused with creating it. All the government did was declare TCP/IP and related basic technologies a standard, which is a reasonable exercise of governmental powers (declare standards (no, nonconforming standards should not be censored)).
Occurs to me: insofar as the Obama wishes to equate the totality of the Internet today with its embryonic origin of DARPANET, so should he equate the totality of a grown adult human with an embryonic baby.
Yeh...it was my shadow that worked 80 hours and put my 3 children through “private” colleges. And I’m a female who did NOT use the WBE route.
Here’s the thing: obama never did anything on his own and now he has to convince the rest of us that neither did we. He already thinks it’s true. He was speaking from the heart. Once he believed this I’m sure he felt so much better about himself. That’s where he gets that smug, shit-eating grin from.
DING DING DING DING ... we have a winner -- you NAILED it!!
As much as I love to read anything you’ve written, on this I have to disagree.
I am not willing to give Obama the excuse of simple ignorance. He’s the President of the United States of America, for God’s sake!
No. This is a case of an amoral socialist idealogue trying to disqualify the accomplishments, experience, and judgement of true dyed-in-the-wool capitalists.
Nothing more; nothing less.
For somebody who wants to undermine claims of personal accomplishment, Obama sure uses I and my an awful lot, in his speeches....
Typical Dhimmicrat, projecting as always.
He never accomplished anything without some outside help.
The more I hear about this, the more I find myself thinking about something similar. The abusive husband. Think about it.
Imagine the battered wife at the door with her suitcase of meager belongings. The husband accosts her at the door and says,
“Honey, now don’t do that. Just think of all the things I’ve done for you. I built all these roads and bridges just for you. Where would you be without me?”
Think about it. And then listen to his quote again. You can just see him wearing the ‘wife beater’, can’t you?
