Barack Hussein Obama: ‘If You’ve Got A Business, You Didn’t Build That – Somebody Else Made It Happen’

Socialist-In-Chief Finally Comes All The Way Out Of The Closet

At last. He finally said it. In a recent campaign speech in Roanoke, Virginia, Barack Hussein Obama peeled back the skin on the anti-business onion – all the way.And, guess what? He’s exactly who we’ve said he was all along: a socialist-progressive who disdains private business ownership and entrepreneurialism to the point of coming right out and declaring: “If you’ve got a business – you didn’t build that. Somebody else made it happen.” Karl Marx would be proud.

It’s one thing to suggest that no successful business thrives in and of itself; it requires customers. It generally requires a favorable economy. It requires a non-repressive tax system and a business-friendly regulatory environment.

It’s quite another thing to declare – categorically: you did not build your own business; other people built it for you. Period. End of discussion. This premise, which sounds as if it’s right out of the Communist Manifesto, must be believed by those who also believe that it is perfectly legitimate – and morally right – for the federal government to take from you anything and everything it wants to take from you and redistribute it to those who are “less fortunate than you.” Because after all, you selfishly built your business on their backs, didn’t you?

Politics or not, this is a chilling statement to hear from a sitting President of the United States.

There are a lot of wealthy successful Americans who agree with me – because they want to give something back. They know they didn’t – look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something – there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there. 

Business owners DO “give something back,” Mr. President; America has the highest corporate tax rate in the world. And yes, many business owners DO work a hell of a lot harder than most people. I’ve seen it and I’ve done it. And I’ve also seen, by the way, perfectly intelligent people fail miserably – precisely because they DIDN’T work hard. But hey, I don’t expect you to understand; you’ve never worked in the private sector – much less understood it.

As if the above “spreading the wealth” justification weren’t quite clear enough, O then launched into full-blown socialist mode:

If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business – you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet. 

Unbelievable. This guy honestly believes it’s inconceivable that anyone could become successful through their own efforts; somebody must have helped them. If your’e a successful entrepreneur, don’t get too big for your britches; collectivism and the government did it for you. As a result, you’re beholden for everything you’ve built. Oops, I meant to say “everything they’ve built for you.”

And of course, it was the government that built the internet. (Al Gore?) It was the government who made it possible for greedy capitalists to “make money off the internet.” Great wording, by the way: making money “off the internet” vs. making money “on the internet” makes it all sound as if you somehow took advantage of the internet, doesn’t it?

If Mitt Romney and the Republican National Committee don’t put highlights of O’s Roanoke speech on a loop and blast it from the rooftops – over and over – Romney doesn’t deserve to win this election. To paraphrase a famous quote from Vladimir Lenin: Barack Obama has given us the rope with which we can hang him in November. The question is, will we step up and do it?

Desperate times call for desperate actions. Often, those desperate actions reveal exactly who we are. Finally.


I know a few very successful liberal business owners; think I’ll go over and swim in their pools this afternoon. After all, they owe me; I built their businesses for them.

  1. When I was a child I acted as a child…yep…before school…Mama zipped my pants, buckled my belt, tied muh shoes…and made sure I did my morning daily constitution, then sent me off to face the world, pat on butt and said “you’re ready, go get it.”. Now Obama and Pelosi think they can do that? No wonder it gets a little stinky along the way. In those days did meet a bully or two…but compensated and made it home.

  2. As profound as what this guy is saying is, I’m afraid it’s lost on a vast majority of us – including those who profoundly disagree with his premise. As is the case with sex and violence on TV, far too many of us have become numb to something as obscene as his comments. Unbelievable.

    • That’s the idea behind is constant bombardment is to make us numb mentally and emotionally. If he had said that back in 2008, I doubt that he would have been elected. I guess he is saying that others put up the collateral for the bank loan, went and found the location, had the idea, worked 100 hour weeks and took all the risk. I guess others got up in the morning and went to open the doors of the business and paid the electricity and overhead in the business. By Obama’s logic if a successful business is built by others, then others are responsible for its failure also. but notice when a company fails it is not the fault of anyone other than the greedy CEO’s who are overpaid.

  3. Sure…didn’t I say that…Mama did this and that. Before that our founders did this and that. Before that tyrants did this and that of which, they, the founders learned from and said no mas. No government flunkies, like O or Pelosi zipped up freedom or buckled up shoes to do the foot stomping to trample tyranny.

  4. Even if you say what about government for WWll, it was boys, blood and guts, ,,,girls, sweat and elbow grease and probably some blood and guts as well,… learned from not government, but when mom said “Daily constitution, before school!” Only way not to be miserable all day ! :) Constitution is infallible.

  5. Reblogged this on nebraskaenergyobserver and commented:

    Huh, didn’t I? Guess I’ll put my eight in and go home, course then I don’t need employees, either. Must be the new American way, I better get on board before they get the deck chairs arranged.

  6. If there are so many smart, hardworking people out there, then why don’t they open their own businesses too? And give most of what they earn to the government? Maybe they are too smart to open a business in the first place. Maybe they are smart enough to know that it makes no sense to work your butt off to build something that will be taken and given to others who do nothing.

  7. Jefferson was right. We should of shipped all of these leeches back to Kenya.
