Obama at Roanoke, VA fire station Friday night: “If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.” Play the 11-second video just below to hear The One say it himself. This is what Juan Williams is attempting to defend. It’s hard to defend because it’s idiotic.
I think the purpose of this sort of talk is to convince a lot of people that successful entrepreneurs did not earn their success. That will make it easier for Obama to take it away from them. As Sununu says, Obama is attacking success. There is a lack of success in America right now, largely because Obama is constantly attacking success and trying to make Americans believe it’s not legitimate to work hard to get ahead.
