"You didn't build that" vs. "I totally deserve this..."

Obama wants you to believe that the driving force behind envisioning, starting and successfully running a business is...not the person who comes up with an idea, mortgages his house to get the money to start it, risks everything and works 70 or 80 hours a week for years to make it successful, but...some other person.

Thus a week ago he uttered the infamous line, "If you've got a business, you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen."

CNN--which has always supported Democrats--ignored the remark for four days, finally reporting it only after the Romney campaign featured it in an ad.

Now flashback three years: Two whole weeks after he was sworn in as preezy, Oblahblah was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. The committee--normally fairly anti-American--was totally in love with Obozo and awarded him the prize, passing over a field of people who had actually done something positive, to honor a person whose only experience with peace was being a U.S. senator for a bit under three years--during which time he gave dozens of speeches proposing peaceful solutions to thorny problems, and introducing critical bills to further world peace.

Just kidding. He didn't do squat. But he totally deserved the Nobel. He deserves all the credit for the Nobel, because... because... uh... er...because he's such a great orator, and never needs notes.

The phrase "You didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen" is reserved for businessmen.
