Caterer at Obama Iowa Event Wears Pro-Romney Shirt
ABC News ^ | Wednesday, August 15, 2012 | Mary Bruce

Posted on 08/15/2012 5:13:32 PM PDT by kristinn

Ross Murty, the co-owner of the Village Corner Deli in Davenport, is a proud small-business owner who isn’t afraid to speak his mind.

Serving up pulled pork, beans and cheesy potatoes for the press at the president’s campaign event this evening, Murty wore a T-shirt that said, “Government Didn’t Build my Business, I Did.”

The shirt is a reference to a comment Obama made last month. While discussing the importance of government investments in public services, the president said, “If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. … Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”

The hazards of reading quickly: I thought the headline said “Carter” instead of “Caterer.” Now that would have been newsworthy!

Here's a comment from the bottom of the page..

“Government Didn’t Build my Business, I Did.”

Typical conservative idiot.
I would have LOVED to see this guy build his business without any loans, education, or tax breaks (all paid for by the taxpayers).

So again, YOU didn’t build your business, WE did.

We didn’t prove you are an idiot. You did that for yourself.

Many are going to be mislead by what you posted.

They will not read this part: ""Here's a comment from the bottom of the page..""", meaning the articles comment section.

Hope this helps. I was a little miffed myself, until I clicked on the article.

Ignore the naysayers. I understood your comment, and totally agree with your reason for posting it.

I would love to respond to the idiocy - but I have learned not to bother. My response would have been along the lines of: I never took a loan for my business, I was educated in private schools, and never got any ta breaks - what’s your reason for living on the public dole?

I'll be careful how I say this.
But not sure I would wear that shirt at an event if they were the ones paying me and hiring my business!

Any other event fine.

Most of those ‘government loans’ go to the people who fail at business. They’re the folks who specialize in getting loans - not in doing business.

Here's a comment from the bottom of the page..(wrote John)

“Government Didn’t Build my Business, I Did.”(said the business owner)

(following text is taken from the comments section at the bottom of the article)

“Typical conservative idiot.
I would have LOVED to see this guy build his business without any loans, education, or tax breaks (all paid for by the taxpayers).

So again, YOU didn’t build your business, WE did.”

(John continues below)

So sorry to have offended some of you casual readers. To the posters who comprehended my post, thank you for your intelligence.

(John at this time will sign off to attend to more productive activities.)

“WE DID” ???
The liberal mindset. Can’t argue with them. Wrestling, pigs, mud, yadda, yadda.
What I’d like to know is how are they going to encourage productivity when they remove any motivation?

Yes it can be.......and the way you have it spaced and set up, it looks like YOU are the one saying 'typical conservative idiot.'

I'm not the only poster that noted that.
