President Obama unwittingly defined himself as clueless about business in a speech last week. He said quite emphatically, "If you've got a business -- you didn't build that, somebody else made that happen." And of course, since you did nothing to build your business, it belongs to "the people" -- along with any wealth or profit derived from it. Pretty much what that deadshit LENIN had to say about the matter, if you recall.
The president is obviously clueless about what it takes to start a business from scratch, having never done anything remotely like that, since his career has consisted entirely of suckling at the government teat. His extreme leftism allows him to promote a form of class warfare by asskissing the Occupy movement encouraging the "them against us" attitude without a thought for what made America great...entrepreneurship. That supreme gamble to put your assets on the line for a taste of prosperity.
His use of Chicago-style sleaze attacks against Mitt Romney for being a successful business man is a diversion from a bad economy and a taste of things to come in the presidential campaign. John McCain, expressing anger at the negative attacks concerning Romney's tax returns, his offshore investments and his years running the Bain Capital investment firm, said, "Mitt left Bain Capital in good shape to save the Olympics that were in severe collapse and all kinds of scandals. And he worked 16 hours a day to save the Games. I'd like to see Barack put that much effort into getting America to prosper again."
Just in case you needed any further persuasion that Barack Obama's carping about Romney's finances is both stupid and hypocritical, Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul noted that Obama himself (besides being a millionaire) has accepted six figures' worth of political donations from executives of Bain Capital. "President Obama has based his entire reelection campaign on a dishonest assault on Mitt Romney's business career and wealth. The real question for the President is this: if Bain Capital is so bad, why has he taken nearly $120,000 in donations from them? Obama's actions are the height of hypocrisy," Saul declared. The hypocrisy continues with the knowledge that the managing director, Jonathan Lavine is actually responsible for the decisions Obama has most stridently hammered Romney for, even though they were made after Romney left the company.
"Relations between Obama and black businessmen is downright contentious", says Harry C. Alford, president of the National Black Chamber of Commerce (which represents nearly 2 million black businesses). "His views on small business, especially black business is counter to ours. This clueless President's view of business is that there should be few major corporations which are totally unionized and working with the government, which should also be massive and reaching every level of American society," Alford continued. "His first Executive Order was the reinstatement of Project Labor Agreements in government contracting. PLAs give labor unions an exclusive option in construction jobs. This activity, in effect, discriminates against blacks, Hispanics and women per se, as trade unions deliberately under-employ them.. How ironic that we have the first black president who deliberately discriminates against small business, women and minorities and doesn't want to hear he is wrong. What an Amateur!"
The Way I See It....Obama's populist assault on Bain's laying off workers and sending jobs overseas just shows the fact that Romney participated in the global economy and made him guilty of precisely nothing. The tax code was tilted to encourage such behavior. In the 1980s and 1990s many American corporations had to be restructured to compete in the global economy. By almost all accounts Bain Capital performed this function honorably and well. Now there is a crying need to rebalance American capitalism, to make sure that the rewards of financial wizardry do not dwarf the rewards of productive manufacturing, to reward long-term development rather than short-term profits.
All in all, every American has a right to experience the reward of knowing they gambled and won, that they built something with their own hands that belongs to them -- something that one may be able to leave to their children. And that's something no one should belittle or take away from you. Unless it's a wannabe commissar like Barack Obama...who resents you, deep down, because you had the courage and ability to do something he could never have done in a thousand years.
The only way Barack Obama can get what you have is to steal it! Which is exactly why he's telling people it doesn't belong to you in the first place. Yes, it really is that simple...that S.O.B!
