No you didn’t…

I’m having flashbacks of Mr. Obama‘s “share the wealth” comment in 2008.

“Cause, if you got a business – that – you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.” So says President Barack Obama, on the campaign trail in Roanoke, Virginia on Friday. The comment has gotten a lot of play and has come under fire from groups like the NFIB (National Federation of Independent Businesses).

I love these moments of transparency from the president. When he reveals who he really is. Even though I feel like I know the president’s politics, it still shocks me sometimes when I hear things like this. The man  has a fundamentally and deeply ingrained collectivist worldview, which shows itself in a callous disregard – some might say contempt – for the entrepreneurial spirit.

I’d like to comment more on this later, because I think this story has legs for the fall, and it’s significant. Hopefully this, along with the campaign’s overreach on suggesting Mitt Romney is a possible felon for misrepresenting the timeline of his tenure at Bain, will help turn the momentum of the last several weeks back in Romney’s favor.

    obama has nothing but support for entreprenuars and small business. Get informed. The question is also…. did romney misrepresent his timeline at Bain. And if he did why? I think the facts do and will speak for themselves.
