Obama saboteurs twisting the truth?

Roanoke Times, 7-22-12,Pg Va 1: Obama saboteurs twisting the truth
-
This editorial commentary tries vainly and passionately to change the tenor and context of Obama's pronouncements at his political rally at Roanoke Fire House # 1.
However it's impossible to reinvent the entire lead up to the "you didn't build that -- someone else did" which was a condescending and disrespectful diatribe against businessmen.
The tone and tenor was right out of the "Street Organizer" handbook from Chicago.
The followup words sounded like Evita explaining the joys of socialism.
Who does Obama think paid for all the government services that exist?
It was and is the taxes from successful people and businesses!
God Bless the 10% who pay 70% of the Federal Income Taxes paid and support much of our society.
-
Watch the video of Obama, watch the facial expressions, watch the body language listen to the words and draw your own conclusions as to who is "twisting the truth" and who is insulting your intelligence.

And Obama's "Who invented the internet" comment was interesting considering that Al Gore had already taken credit for that!  However, for a factual update on that issue click to read the WSJ's article that details the who, what, when and where; and it wasn't Al Gore!

A Letter to the Editors of the Roanoke Times
A Conservation With Sen. Mark Warner At The Hub
-
Senator Mark Warner visited constituents Saturday at the Hub Restaurant in Rocky Mount. He shook hands and talked with Franklin County residents assembled outside to express their disapproval with his support of numerous laws adversely impacting individuals and businesses. The interchanges were respectful, personal and direct.
-
I congratulated him for having been a very successful businessman in Virginia; having taken personal risk in investing in businesses, hiring employees and personally exercising the American free enterprise system. I implored him to step back from his involvement and support of the current Socialistic Washington culture of excessive regulation, taxing and spending and instead change his focus to pro-business legislation encouraging and supporting businesses to grow and develop and generate good jobs with good benefits.
-
I did not have the opportunity to get his view of Obama’s comments at Fire House #1 that were condescending and a personal rebuke to him and all successful business-people.
After mocking business people's intelligence, hard work, innovation and risk taking, Obama then said: You businessmen didn’t build your businesses; someone else did it for you! Has any President of the US ever maligned American businesspeople and our entrepreneurial free-enterprise system in this manner? How pathetic and sad!
