    Paul Ryan rips Obama’s comment that ‘if you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen’

    James Pethokoukis | July 16, 2012, 8:26 pm

    It was Rep. Paul Ryan’s wife, Janna, who first saw — via Twitter — President Obama’s recent comments about American entrepreneurs, that “if you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”

    And the Wisconsin Republican — thought to be on Mitt Romney’s running-mate short list — couldn’t believe it. He thought someone must “have been putting words in the president’s mouth.”

    But Obama said it all. And Ryan absolutely tore into the president in a chat I had with him earlier today. Among the highlights:

    – “The idea that these entrepreneurs owe all their success to some government bureaucrat or some centralized planner just defies reality.”

    – “Every now and then, President Obama pierces the veil. He’s usually pretty coy about his ideology, but he lets the veil slip from time to time.”

    – “We believe in free communities and this is a statist attack on free communities.”

    – “He’s deluded himself into thinking that his so-called enemies are these crazy individualists who believe in some dog-eat-dog society when what he’s really doing is basically attacking people like entrepreneurs and stacking up a list of scapegoats to blame for his failures.”

    – “As all of his big government spending programs fail to restore jobs and growth, he seems to be retreating into a statist vision of government direction and control of a free society that looks backward to the failed ideologies of the 20th century.”

    – “Those of us who are conservative believe in government, we just believe government has limits. We want government to do what it does well and respect its limits so civil society and families can flourish on their own and do well and achieve their potential.”

    – “He wants to be as transformational as Reagan by undoing the entire Reagan revolution.”

    Frankly, every American should be ripping Obama, sadly too many Americans agree with him.

    If you don't believe Obama, try this...

    Buy a large section of raw land and build your own business - including all infrastructure. Build and pay for your own defense, transportation (roads/highways/ports/shipping), education, research & development, energy, police, courts, etc. without help from anyone else - including the government.

    There is much more, but surely you get the drift by now. Good luck...

    Typical republicans, hiding their use of government funds to create their businesses, and pretending workers in america are not damaged when you fire them to make sweatshops overseas, and then they just pull shit completely out of context for an attack.
