Run, Mitt Romney, Run!


I'm not going to pretend to know what was in Obama's head when he said what he said about entrepreneurs and small business owners, but he changed the game and Romney is running with the ball. It's hard to twist his words when there's audio and video and his purpose for speaking is clear. He's trying to convince the country that his "plan" for making rich people pay more taxes is a good thing. The idea that these rich people are some of our job creators is FINALLY starting to resonate with voters, and then we have Obama's word vomit. Up until now, Obama has never referred to business owners specifically in this manner, so it's no coincidence. Obama has said many times he doesn't want to punish success, but his actions speak differently. We see it in his proposal for the Buffett Rule, his attacks on Mitt Romney's wealth, and now the Bush Tax Cuts. The Great Uniter is dividing America, pitting the rich against the poor; increasing government dependency and bashing American individualism. Obama IS making the case that we need government because that's been his whole deal since he took office. Obamacare wouldn't be the hot mess that it is if he didn't believe people need government. And not just our need for government, but his words say he believes we owe government for our success. If that doesn't bother you, then there's something wrong with you.

  1. That's probably the best Romney ad I've seen, although to be fair, Obama practically gave that to Romney.

    Quite the eye opening speech by Obama. I wrote about it here: http://mikestreetstation.wordpress.com/2012/07/18/for-us-who-didnt-build-that/
