    On June 22, 1983, President Reagan addressed the National Conference of the National Federation of Independent Business(NFIB) on their 40th anniversary. The president praised America and then he praised small business owners.

    “America is getting well. She’s growing strong. And, together we’ll keep her free. Looking at you I get a lump in my throat… Small business is the gateway to opportunity for those who want a piece to the American Dream... The character and conscience of small business built this nation. You know, in his book Wealth and Poverty George Gilder wrote something about entrepreneurs that I’ve long believed. He said that most contribute far more to society than they ever recover. And most of them win no riches at all. They are the heroes of economic life…”

    It was an amazing speech.

    Now compare that to Barack Obama’s approach. Here is what Barack Obama had to say to business owners last weekend.
    “You didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”

    But to be fair. He did push food stamps on Spanish TV.

    Lawrence Kudlow had this to say about Reagan’s style of praise versus Obama’s trashing of business owners.
