Spin, Baybee!

Why would the Mittster need to "spin" what Teh Won says, when what he really says indicates that he does hate businesses?

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.”
Shall we examine what Obama did say here? Obviously the guy/gal who believed "build a better mousetrap and people will beat a path to your door" was mistaken. His/her idea that hit it big was not really their idea nor can they take credit for it because of all the help they got over the years. It's really because of that special teacher way back when, they did it.

And the people who put in super long hours keeping the business running, and made all kinds of personal sacrifices to be a success had no bearing on the outcome - it was all kinds of other hardworking people who made it happen. They might as well have been sitting at home watching soap operas instead of busting their a$$es.

Somebody else set up the system that allowed that business to thrive, but it sure wasn't our intrepid businessperson. Nor were they involved in the infrastructure - someone else did that. Apparently all the taxes the businessperson paid over the years had nothing to do with that.

And if it weren't for our all benevolent and wise government built the internet for the benefit of businesses. It surely wasn't the military wanting a more secure and reliable method of transmitting data than radio, telegraph and telephone - not an evolutionary step at all. It was designed straight off by the Government. Don't you forget it.

It's very clear that President Obama has a collectivist point of view. In a country founded on the principles of individual rights.

Romney doesn't have to spin what Barry says, and I fail to grok why someone like Steve Sack can't take off the blinders.

I'm to the point I can only have one conclusion: Democrats/progressives want to destroy the country so they can rebuild it. That makes them my enemy and I have no compassion for any of them.

If the rest of the businees world has to deal with anywhere near the government regulation and restrictions as I do, It's a wonder there's anybody building anything.

The picture on Facebook of the empty six lane highway in North Korea tells me the way most of the politicians seem to think we can improve, if it were compared with the eight lane bumper to bumper traffic of South Korea (which has some problems of their own). You do need the highway, but the people must be free to fill it.
