Ohio Small Business Owner Rips Obama: “Mr. President, You Have No Idea How We Try to Run a Small Business From Daylight Until Night” (Video)

Good for Mitt Romney for continuing to pound this revealing anti-capitalist statement by Barack Obama.
The Romney Campaign released “These Hands: Ohio” today. The internet ad includes testimony from a small business owner who rips on Obama’s clueless approach to business.

Here’s the script for “These Hands: Ohio”

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: “There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something. If you’ve got a business—you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”

DENNY SOLLMANN: “I mean, I’m thinking, ‘You’ve got to be kidding me.’ He was trying to say: ‘Hey, you didn’t build that business on your own. The government helped you build it.’ And that’s what ticked me off more than anything. Mr. President, unfortunately you have no idea how we here in Midwestern Ohio have to try to run a small business from daylight till night. Not only my business, but other small businesses around here they’re all scared to death that the path that we’re headed with the current administration is not the path for America. We need a new path so that my son and my grandson can prosper like I did. What we need is a leader who truly understands, truly understands, how business works. My name’s Dennis Sollmann, President of Sollman Electric and I built this.”

MITT ROMNEY: “The idea, to say that Steve Jobs didn’t build Apple, that Henry Ford didn’t build Ford Motor…to say something like that is not just foolishness, it’s insulting to every entrepreneur, every innovator in America, and it’s wrong.”
