Goodness. The Twitster did not Spake of The Peace Process while on his Visit To The M.E. Good For Him.

I mean, if Pitiful, The Peace Prize Winning(Deservedly So), Drone Hit Man, Throw 'em Under Da Bus Potus can't Bring Peace To The M.E., then what can A Twit Do?

And All The Other Candidates For Prez, Congressmen/women, Past Prezes, and Other Do Gooders can't Bring Da Peace, then, again, what can A Twit Do?

Can The Twit Spit? Bet he has a good one.

Anyways. With Empty Seats and Empty Heads, The World Keeps Spinning.

Oh, so he did not use public roads, sewers or hire employees educated in public schools? Truly a self sufficient individual!

I see an entrance to a road. Hmmm perhaps the local gov't contracted construction company needs to be called back out and put that curb in like they were supposed to do. No need to help a business. In fact I don't like that road perhaps the gov't should just dig that right up and plant a few trees. While we are at it lets get those annoying water and sewer lines dug up and revoke your business license and change your zoning to farming only. Heck lets change the city regs so your facility is to low or considered in a flood plain.

Be a jerk and a city can be one, too.

So obvious when you look at it. Yes as much as you think you did it all yourself someone was their to get the little things done so you can do what you want as a business. Did you get your building inspected when it was being built? Did the police attempt to bribe to keep your facility safe? From OSHA to public safety it takes a village to raise a store : )

Nobody said an individual didn't start their own business. However, the gov't had a hand in making your business a safe and as prosperous as it can be.

That's not even what Obama said, nor what he even meant. The GOP is purposefully taking a specific statement made by President Obama out of context and are trying to turn it against him.

The full context of the speech is thus:

“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.

“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.”


In other words, he was trying to inspire us all to work together to rebuild America again. Any honest person can see that, in context, he wasn't trying to tell anyone that they didn't build their business from the ground up without government help. He was trying to illustrate that all businesses rely on either hiring good employees or their relationship with other companies to become successful. That the success of a business is directly related to the quality of work from not only the employees, but their suppliers and everyone in between. Unfortunately, he used the Internet as an example and people inferred from that statement that Obama was saying that Government is responsible for the success of every business.



To be fair though - the Dems have pulled the same out-of-context style rhetoric and attack method with Romney's "I like to fire people" comment.

Right, when Romney said he liked to fire people he was talking about corporations. People are corporations too.

"How about that Michael Phelps? But let's remember he didn't win all those medals, someone else did. After all, he and I swam in public pools, built by state employees using tax dollars. He got training from the USOC, and ate food grown by the Department of Agriculture. He should play fair and share his medals with people like me, who can barely keep my head above water, let alone swim." -- WSJ

Misfit -- Phelps did win those medals, Didn't win them on his own -- he won them for his mother. Of course on the relays it was impressive that he swam all four legs.

It is curious watching the blather right objecting to the 'no man is an island' theme. I want to see the blather right NOT for Rmoney, rather they should all vote for themselves.

It's all politics.

yes telling that man that he didn't win those is going a little far, but we (should) understand that that's NOT the point here...

Wonder how much tax he pays in a year?

Wonder how much of his tax dollars went to pay for roads and scoop snow off of them?

Wonder how much of the Hi-Way [federal] does he use for his biz?

Wonder how much of the state road system he uses for his biz?
