Obama VIDEO: “If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that.”

President Barack Obama not only insulted American business owners when he delivered a speech yesterday in Roanoke, VA, but he also showed just how little he knows of the entrepreneurial spirit. He managed to ramp up his class warfare argument at the same time. According to Todd Stames of FOX News Radio, the president’s remarks included the following:

“If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that,” Obama told the crowd. “Somebody else made that happen.”

President Obama said successful Americans did not become successful on their own — they had help.

“If you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own,” he said. “You didn’t get there on your own.”

“The point is, is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together,” he said. “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.”
