In this clip from Romney's speech at Horizontal Wireline Services in Irwin, Pennsylvania, he ripped into Obama over the Campaigner in Chief's remarks about business owners didn't build their businesses. Romney had some excellent lines.

That somebody else is government in his view.

He describes people who we care very deeply about, who make a difference in our lives, Schoolteachers, firefighters, people who build roads. We need those things. We value schoolteachers, firefighters, people who build roads. You really couldn't have a business if you didn't have those things. We pay for those things. The taxpayers pay for government.

It's insulting to every entrepreneur, every innovator in America. And it's wrong.

Well the President would say you didn't do that. You couldn't have gotten to school without the roads the government built for you and you couldn't have gone to school without teachers so you're not responsible for success.

President Obama attacks success and therefore under President Obama we have less success.

And in my own view is what the President said was both startling and revealing. I find it extraordinary that a philosophy of that nature would be spoken by a President of the United States.

Do we believe in a America that is great because of government or do we believe in a America that is great because of free people allowed to pursue their dreams?
