Campaigning in Roanoke, Virginia on July 13th — just a few days ago — Mr Obama had this to say regarding his viewpoint on businesses in the nation:
That’s correct, businessmen and -women, you didn’t build your business — someone else did.
You heard and read that correctly, according to Mr Obama.
That is how fervently Mr Obama despises private business.
The full transcript is here at WhiteHouse.gov, should you disbelieve me.
President Barack Obama addressed supporters in Roanoke, Virginia on Saturday afternoon and took a shot at the business community. President Obama dismissed any credit business owners give themselves for their success:
There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me — because they want to give something back. They know they didn’t — look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something — there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there. (Applause.)
Mr Obama goes on to say that business creators owe massive debts to their teachers, their local bridge builder. That’s like saying I’m a good cop because my parents had milk delivered for a while to the house in the 50s. Or that we had our garbage collected by two guys on a truck once a week.
Mr Obama is so beyond the pale of human ken as to be, in my opinion, not only ludicrous but patently dangerous.
He is biased, racist, a massive Leftist, schooled at the feet of persons such as Saul Alinsky, William Ayers and of course his father, Barack Hussein Obama — a Communist.
Victor Davis Hanson sums up Mr Obama’s racial obsession quite succinctly here:
Never has America been more assimilated, integrated, and intermarried — as is evident in everything from politics to popular culture, from statistics to anecdotes. Yet from late 2007 to 2012, Barack Obama has been establishing new rules of racial referencing. In general, his utterances follow a disheartening pattern. When he is ahead in the polls, has won an election, and is not campaigning, then he emphasizes the unity of the country. But when he is running for president, or campaigning for others, or sinking in the polls, he and his closest associates predictably revert to charges of racial bigotry, albeit usually coded and subtle. America is redeemed when it champions the Obamas, but retrograde when it does not.
In a word: precisely.
Mr Obama believes in government: HIS. He believes in race: HIS. He believes in nothing else.
Because you became successful, because you aren’t government, because you don’t RELY on government — you, Mr and Ms Private Business-Builder: you can go to Hell.
Because he’s going to tax you out of existence just as he’s going to tax private Healthcare out of business. Just you watch.
