Wicked Commentary

From the Blaze:

“The White House has released the transcript of President Obama’s recent speech in Roanoke, Virginia, and it holds a number of noteworthy statements.

“Channeling Elizabeth Warren,” in the words of Jazz Shaw at Hot Air, Barack Obama said that successful Americans “didn’t get there” on their own.

The official transcript relates:

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.  [Emphasis added]

He continued:

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. [Emphasis added]

This has got to be one of the more inane things coming out of his mouth. You who worked hard to build your business did not do it on your own.  What an insult to all entrepreneurs across the country who did just that, build a business from the bottom up despite government interference and not government help. 

This will go down in history as one of the worst offensive remarks he has made about business owners.  I do believe he is going to pay a heavy price for this mistake.  Business owners, especially small ones are already against him due to the uncertainty he created with his regulations and Obamacare.

He is digging his own grave.  I guess then we would have some shovel ready job to do.

    You have to understand the DICKtater projects his life onto everyone else. Just look at all the help he had – Wright, Alinsky, Resko, Corzine, Immelt, Holder, Geitner, etc.,etc., and when they no longer serve a purpose or kiss his ass(very hard to do since his head is in the way) – under the bus.


    • Hi Just Gene,

      LMAO! You are on the humor bandwagon this morning. Very, very funny. Yes it’s all so true, every bit of what you said.

      Right, under the bus. It’s telling that he is not willing to throw Holder under the bus. What say you?

    Mrs. Pepper’awk. Hopefully this one will come back and take a big hunk out of his skinny @zz. This guy is getting desperate. No telling what he’ll say or do next. Val and the “ax” are probably pulling their hair out out trying to figure out what to try next.

    You are on a roll gal. Keep ‘er rollin’.

    ‘oohRah! 😉


    • Willibeaux,

      Yeah, I’m rolling all right. Won’t be on here tomorrow. We’ll be in Lexington, Liberal Bastion from Hell ala DavetheRave.

      You’re probably right that Val and Axelrod are pulling out their hair. The last time I saw the Ax on a Sunday morning news show, his eyes were popping out of his head and he was ranting about Romney. He looked like he was on speed as fast as he was talking like a drugged up loony.

      ‘ooRah! 😀


  3. This is another sterling example that proves beyond a reasonable doubt that Zero is absolutely clueless about ANYTHING.

    I hope that he keeps digging the hole he is in. He may well be Romney’s best campaigner.


    • Hi HN,

      The Occupier is getting absolutely desperate is what I think. I bet their internal polls are telling them how many blacks just won’t be voting this November. They won’t vote for Romney but they may very well sit at home.

      Yeah, let him keep flying with this stupidity and hopefully he’ll slice his own throat big time.
      I’m praying for a landslide Romney win in November so there is no excuse to drag out the lawyers on the Occupier’s side.

    I believe the Commander in Thieves wil have us in a war by October, or creat a riot, then declare Martial law and cancel the elections. Anyone who thinks Syria can’t happen here knows nothing about DICKtaters. It’s hard to put humor in such seriousness, but if I didn’t I’d be drinking scotch and hemlock. We not only can stop it – we must. Everyone must do their part. I was on a back country road yesterday and saw something laying in the middle of the road. I pulled over and walked back to see what it was and there was Chicken Little. I asked him what was he doing and he said “The sky is falling, the sky is falling”. I told him I knew that but why are you laying on the yellow line with your feet in the air. He replied “One does what on can”.


    • Just Gene,

      LMAO!! More humor. You must be in a terrific mood today. Interesting that you tell the joke about the chicken. I heard last night the Iran has banned showing chickens on their TV. The Iranian government stated that too many people cannot afford to eat chicken and they may kill someone over a chicken. Can you believe that? Crazy world.


      • Pepp, (containing my laughter)

        Ha what’s that, show no more chickens? They could replace them with videos of stoning women. That probbably looks good in HD. That wouldn’t bother the regime. Just no chickens or they’ll arrest you.


  5. This ppmunch must wake up every morning,wondering,”how can I piss’em off today”? Today’s topic must have been “You Can’t Do It Without Government”. The pollsters,or respondents,must ALL be lying for ANY sort of “closeness” in this race. Sure hope Romney’s people unleash the TRUTH about the knucklehead,instead of this trying to play nice bullshit.


    • clyde.

      I don’t doubt it that the Occupier wakes up and figures out the next thing to piss us off. I don’t think he gives a damn about what he says. He is so taken us in his real goal now, he is letting all his Marxism show. The mask is falling off.
      Now if we can get all the useful idiots to see this we’d be in fine shape.

      Romney is starting to lash back but he needs to step it up. Would you believe the Occupier spent over $200 million dollars on attack ads against Romney in 3 swing states, Ohio, FLA, Penn. No wonder Romney has dropped in the polls in these states.

      Romney better unleash those attack ads he knows so well how to do when he took Newt down in the Florida primary.


  6. Oh, btw, the Senate Republicans blocked the Disclose Act yesterday, another victory for our side.


  7. Pepp,

    Great post. I’m getting irritated that some label it a gaffe. It wasn’t a gaffe; it was an exclamation point to his diatribe. It was supposedly the applause line. But gaffe? Hardly, it was a big government, socialism, anticapitalism rant. Why do conservatives have to be generous to him?


    • Bull,

      Right. His teleprompter is not going with him recently, he’s tired running around doing 4 to 5 fund raisers a day and he’s slipping up revealing who he really is.
