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?

What the muslim queer nigger is saying is that you are not personally responsible for your successes and failures.  Just line up for more government freebies.  Don't bother working for anything because you can just sit on your ass and have it handed to you.  MAY GOD PLEASE STRIKE OBAMA DEAD!!!!

 Obama is a damn cracker ass traitor that never built anything and can't  do anything but poor money and gasoloine on a burning Constituion.
It really doesnt matter. YOUR A FUCKING MORON !!!!

the point of Obama was that no one can really establish something without support from, or cooperation with others and/ or the government or other institutions and/ or companies. that you can't do something big in complete isolation. where, for example, does the vast majority of the individuals get their education from? I think this principle is not only true for the USA, but for every other country in the world, including the country I live in (the Netherlands). It seems to me Romney apparently completely misunderstood Obama's words, or he is willingly distorting them for campaign purposes.

+nlucctw2 Obama said that "THE ROADS THAT LEAD TO YOUR BUSINESS, you did not build that. meaning the roads not a persons business. You blithering Idiot...............
+Jelmer Scheringa No I think he outline it well. Obama just doesn't know what the fuck he is talking about when he says "If you have a business, you didn't build it".....Not out of context...he basically says it in all parts of what he was saying prior. Obama is an idiot.
matt w
18 trillion $ debt...The MOST taxes ever collected in the history of the U.S. !
People are sheep,the fact they think this guy is any better than Obama is HILARIOUS.If you're not upper middle class and you're a republican then you must feel pretty sore from that raping you're getting from BOTH of the puppet parties.
