Saw the speech, the Republicans are taking way out of context. And featured in Romney's ad is a small offended business owner who did it all by himself Oh yeah with lots of Gov't money. Send the GOP packing til they learn what country 1st means. Romney and his GOP cohorts ARE the problem!

We all heard it. It was not out of context. Obama thinks nobody built their own businesses.

It makes it easier to take more and more private wealth this way. The American people have got you figured out Obama - sure took long enough...

I heard about it. Then I heard zero claiming it was out of context. Then they played the entire passage. It sounds worse than it is being portrayed. He hates people who are successful. The money they have does not belong to them. It is the governments and they allow people to keep some of it.

So you leftists claim businesses didn't build the roads, bridges, schools and all the rest of the infrastructure? That shows how stupid you truly are. You will suck up ANYTHING dear leader feeds you. Businesses built all that. Their taxes are why we have schools, roads , bridges et al. How about you lunatic leftists kiss a business owners backside?
