Obama is doing the fundraising overseas that Americans won’t do? Does it come with a coupon for citizenship?
Spoken by a guy who has never started or run a business in his life. When you compare the level of input by a small business owner to what “help” is provided by others. What a pandering fool.
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.)
If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. 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 Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.
The point is, is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together. There are some things, just like fighting fires, we don’t do on our own. I mean, imagine if everybody had their own fire service. That would be a hard way to organize fighting fires.
You would think they would at least pause to take a breath in between hypocritical statements
Free speech is free. You get to judge it’s value. In the interest of fair play and equal opportunity, Lopex will turn his attention to the “authenticity” of Obama’s heritage, I guess, or whatever the point of his riff was.
In the same interest of transparency, democratic pundits are calling for Barack’s birth certificate, and college records just like they are calling fr Romney’s tax records and SEC filings
