PICKET:(VIDEO) Obama - Business owners not responsible for their own success but, "I killed bin Laden"

PICKET:(VIDEO) Obama - Business owners not responsible for their own success but, "I killed bin Laden"

President Barack Obama is taking heat for slamming business owners who credit themselves for their own successes. He told supporters in Roanoke, Virginia on Saturday:

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.

This Moron usurper

has a brain the size of a pea and fat purple lips that flap so hard with BS that he creates a breeze.

former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said: “It is a narrative that is being pushed by our current president, that ‘I’m doing poorly because you’re doing well,’” she said. “That has never been the American narrative. Ours has never been a narrative of aggrievement and ours has never been a narrative of entitlement. It is time for all of us, in any way we can, to mobilize, get our act together, and storm Washington D.C.”

Keepin' it real.

Prove it....

Prove it....

of a malcontent collectivist community organizer.

Let me see...if individuals

Let me see...if individuals are not responsible for their own success, are they then solely responsible for their failure? Or can the collective also assume responsibility for that too?

Ahhh...collectivist's rationalizations are truly insane.
