Skip to comments.'WE DID BUILD IT': SMALL BUSINESS OWNER TAUNTS OBAMA MOTORCADE
Posted on 08/18/2012 7:22:59 PM PDT by Hojczyk
On a beautiful August day when most people are enjoying the weather and leisure time, self-made man Al Letizio organized a protest against the President of the United States.
This New Hampshire businessman set up signage outside his business to let Mr. Obama know that in America, the free market still works and small businessmen aren't obligated to grovel on bended knee to thank the federal government for allowing them to exist.
Al Letizio owns a small food service business that just happens to be situated along President Obamas motorcade route to his rally in New Hampshire today. Mr. Letizio, like so many other small business owners across the country, is annoyed at the President's infamous, off-prompter declaration that business owners in America "didn't build that." In fact, it's quite the opposite. The federal government is funded by people like Mr. Letizio.
Check out these pictures from earlier today as Mr. Letizio hung a We Did Build It sign on his storefront as Obama drove by, with Romney supporters cheering him on.

Build this, democrats!

Now for the rest of the evening I will be hearing Grace Slick singing “We Built this City”(on rock and roll)
But they are all pissed with what Obama said last month. I have a cousin with a small business that he and his wife started up. They work as much as 16 hours a day and often go years without a vacation. Sometimes they are on the couch at home at 11pm at night, exhausted, but still on their computers doing bookkeeping chores and such, knowing that they have to somehow wake up in five more hours to do it all over again. Obama's remarks cut them deeply. My cousin's wife was almost in tears talking about it. Obama clearly has no idea how hard these people work and how badly he insulted them.
I think this year, we are going to see a lot of small business owners voting. In fact, they might have the kind of impact in 2012 that the Reagan Democrats had in 1980.
Starship - We Built This City
If Grace Slick happens to own the rights to that song, then there's not a chance the Romney campaign will get to use it. Grace Slick is about as far-Left as you can get. In fact, she intended for the song to be an anti-corporate anthem and bristles that some think of it as a pro-corporate song.
Anyway, I have an idea for a killer set of TV ads that Romney/Ryan can run. Have each ad feature a hard-working couple who worked day and night for years to build a family business together, be it a corner grocery store, a bake shop, a veterinary clinic, you name it. Show in the ad how hard they worked to get this business off the ground. Then towards the end of the ad, show Obama waving his finger saying "You didn't build that!" and then end the ad with the husband and wife telling Obama "Oh yes we did, Mr. President!"
I'm telling you, those ads will kill! Might need to make them 60-second ads to tell the full story but it will be well worth it.
He is the poster boy for welfare, affirmative action and getting a pass based on race. I have yet to see a single thing he has accomplished - academic records, essays, work records, voting records (’Present’ doesn’t count), Congressional schedules- nada.
“We Built This City” is a song written by Bernie Taupin, Martin Page, Dennis Lambert, and Peter Wolf
Well it seems Bernie Taupin one of the writers might be open:
Taupin has lived his dream of being a “Brown Dirt Cowboy”. He moved to Southern California from England in the mid-1970s; since the 1980s, he has been living on a ranch north of Los Angeles near Santa Ynez, California. He co-owned a restaurant in downtown Los Angeles called “Cicada” with then-wife Stephanie Haymes. He co-owned a PBR bucking bull named Little Yellow Jacket, which was recently retired as an unprecedented three-time world champion.
Not your typical leftist background
polling -no, campaign rallies -no voting always
established: May 29th, 1896
That's the first thing I thought of when the phrase first oopsed out of Obummer's mouth. It's a very catchy tune.
Think of anything but an elephant.

Permission to use the song, or any known song, comes from the publisher, not the writer. So that’s Warner Chappell or Peer or...whomever the publisher is.
Sure he has. He killed Osama didn't he?
He is so brave and courageous to do that for us. He is like God or superman.
Webster's definition of "sucks".
Webster’s definition of “curmudgeon”.
God bless and keep Al Letizio and his cherished family.
Websters definition of curmudgeon.
That may be true!
(and that song is, without a doubt, the WORST Starship song ever!)
We built this business
We built this business with our sweat and blood...
