Barack Obama lectured supporters on economics and entrepreneurship last night in Roanoke, Virginia.
He told the crowd, “If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”

Hat Tip Free Republic

Really? Which mentor taught him that?

From the White House website:

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.

More… Could Obama be channeling nutty Elizabeth Warren?

    I’m not a racist; I don’t like Biden or Pelosi either commented:

    Is this clip taken out of context? I for one would like to hear what came before and after this 12 second clip.

    See … plus the comments.

  15. I do not understand this line of thinking. It is so utterly F’d up.
    I deserve nothing i have because someone else did it for me? WTH?
    It really is time to get this guy out of office before our children start spewing this garbage.
    No wonder kids are so lazy coming out of high school. They are waiting for someone to do it for them.
    I guess it all comes from Obama’s stash.

  16. #5, in this case, the context is accurate, with his next (paragraph) line from the W.H. website:

    “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.”

    Bozo is just blathering in circles to his adoring cult in almost daily traveling speeches on his snake oil circuit. He’s hardly doing his job these days, he’s spending a lot of time campaigning, or in between he is traveling from stop to stop, and/or planning for speeches and strategy. Being the POTUS is just a part-time job for this jerk, and when he is working, he comes off more like a European socialist, U.N. Secretary General. Judicial Watch is a great cause!

  17. Obama doesn’t have a clue about Americans..not a single clue

  18. Romney was selected by the same powers that chose Obama.. Builderberger, Trilateral, Soro’s, NWO, Rothschild bankster scum.. WE NEED A REAL CHOICE.. THEN WE MUST WRITE THEM IN! Somebody who is not in their fray. In their face resistance is all they will understand.. We can not accept any more of the “best of two evils” argument!
