(CNSNews.com) President Barack Obama insisted Thursday that without government spending, Google, Facebook would not exist.
Obama made the remark at a campaign fundraiser while criticizing the budget passed by House Republicans. Obama said the Rep. Paul Ryans budget would, among other things, cut funding for research.
I believe in investing in basic research and science because I understand that all these extraordinary companies that are these enormous wealth-generators -- many of them would have never been there; Google, Facebook would not exist, had it not been for investments that we made as a country in basic science and research, Obama said. I understand that makes us all better off.
Obama said Ryans budget would gut an advanced, responsible society.
I gave a speech on Tuesday about the congressional budget thats been proposed by the Republicans in the House of Representatives -- a budget that Gov. Romney, who is the frontrunner on the Republican side, has embraced -- said the budget was marvelous.
But Obama said the vision portrayed by the Ryan budget is of an America where everybody is fending for themselves, a few are doing very well at the top, and everybody else is struggling to get by.

Maybe they shouldn't.
This is beyond campaign rhetoric.
Little bammy is nuts.

If Obama wasn’t too stupid and lazy to actually present a budget, his would have a few doing well at the top and everyone else forced to beg the government for enough subsidies to afford some energy and food.
I’d rather struggle to get by than become a dependent/slave of the government.
Obama - F.O.S., as usual.
Obummer is Gargoyle and Farcebook.
He is talking to the dumbest of the dumb among us, i.e. the democrat base...
Can’t wait to see what this clown will be spewing come September....
Facebook is what made America great?
I’m sure Mark, Eduardo, Larry, and Sergey would be shocked to find out they were funded by the .gov
This jerk actually BELIEVES that government is the answer to everything. He is not just a communist, he is a DELUSIONAL Communist. Pick a subject, pick a product, pick an accomplishment; this idiot CIC will credit GOVERNMENT for it’s existence!
Facebook launched in 2004.
What a friggin’ idiot.
AlGore invented the internet redux.
Well, they wouldn’t exist without Owl Gore, that’s for sure.
But the cat is out of the bag. The Internet is the greatest trojan horse ever invented by government. They have all us troblemakers ID’d by now.
Because government funded public education that made Google and Facebook possible? Well, maybe it’s true, but BFD. Past generations spoke of putting men on the moon....
Obama is a TRUE BELIEVER in the state. He TRULY BELIEVES that government has the answer for everything..... if people like him run the government.
He is the most dangerous enemy of freedom that this country has. That is a scary thought, considering who he is.
