    The President is a prick. Obama is such a hateful little man. I've grown to not only despise him but to loathe him.
    His remarks were totally uncalled for. They were vicious and petty. I'm thrilled that the NFIB issued this statement.

    November can't come soon enough.

    In a hard-hitting statement to Mail Online, the National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB) said: 'What a disappointment to hear President Obama's revealing comments challenging the significance of America's entrepreneurs.

    'His unfortunate remarks over the weekend show an utter lack of understanding and appreciation for the people who take a huge personal risk and work endless hours to start a business and create jobs.'


    AND
    " And the spokesman for the NFIB added: 'I'm sure every small-business owner who took a second mortgage on their home, maxed out their credit cards or borrowed money from their own retirement savings to start their business disagrees strongly with President Obama's claim. They know that hard work does matter.

    'Every small business is not indebted to the government or some other benefactor. If anything, small businesses are historically an economic and job-creating powerhouse in spite of the government.'

    then let the govt. stop keeping up the roads and see how that goes. When businesses have to pave their roads they will think a little better of what has been done so theycan earn money efficeintly

    The government didn't, doesn't and never has created roads. It was the taxpayers, much like the small businesses in the critique above, that built the roads. The government only managed the project. Quite haphazardly and costly I might add.

    The private sector could have, and would have built transport lines without government.

    Your argument is false.

    This goes above and beyond issues of infrastructure maintenance. Obama has been on a wild spending spree and there's no end in sight. His budget doesn't seek to invest in the commerce that keeps this country ticking, but to break the backs of commerce in the name of creating and maintaining a welfare state.

    Why don't you just move to your little Socialist Utopia and leave us backwards Capitalists where you found us? I'm sure there's plenty of room in the flock for a good little sheep like you.

    When government has to collect their own taxes, talk to us about who needs who.

    .

    Obama went too far. He's made the calculation that he'll win more populist votes than what he'll lose in business owners, I reckon.

    I don't like hearing a President talk like that. But then, I know what it is like to be a business owner.

    And where does the government get the money to build and maintain the roads?

    Someone who advocates Communism but is too cowardly to move to a Communist nation; who advocates the destruction of the US Constitution while hiding behind its protections; who condemns the American consumerism lifestyle while living that same lifestyle.

    That woman at the protest handing out pro-Castro literature is a chickenred...she'd never move to Cuba.
