    I guess you could look up how many people are on welfare, food stamps, and the like.

    If this economy is the indicator of how "govt is responsible for building business", then I'd suggest the govt doesn't know it's butt from a shovel about business.

    What it seems to be you're doing here is projecting a political ideology into his statements. I think we should move beyond this type of tactic.
    Are you kidding me? "WE" should stop reading political ideology into a politician's statements? EARTH to Boo, that is precisely what politcal campaigns, thus elections, are about! Obama is a huge federal nanny state type of guy, that honestly believes that job of gov't is to enforce "social justice" and to redistribute U.S. wealth "properly". Obama screwed up (again) by going "rogue", or off teleprompter, and let fly his REAL feelings. These moments are very rare, yet quite telling.

    At least President Obama is being honest about his open goal of everyone being dependent upon the government.

    That is what the country was founded on. The premise of dependency upon the government rather than a weak King who let people do what they want, plus opposition to the merchant class.

    YOu reproduce my statement and then you follow it with something like this and it makes absolutely no sense as a reply to mine.

    Re: Obama to business owners: "You didn't build that."

    The intent of the OP is to accuse Obama of saying that business owners didn't build their businesses.

    And that, as we all can clearly read, is a lie.

    Which tells you nearly nothing as what Turtle asserts. It only is a snapshot in time. My challenge to Turtle and anyone else is still there: just how many people are there that are wards of the state and NEVER pay any taxes at any point in their lives?

    Obviously you believe and embrace the fraudulent tactic of intentionally and deliberately perverting what you 'enemies' say and then twisting it even more to create a strawman monster that you can whip up the villagers to attack.

    Who do you think you are fooling with such intellectually bankrupt tactics that are so easily spotted?

    Here's a tip for you:

    Judge someone's message from the words they use, not the ones you've inserted in your head.
    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear
