Obama's comment reveals how little he understands job creation or America!
Some are calling it the Roanoke Incident. It happened last Friday at a campaign event in Roanoke Virgina. President Obama went off teleprompter and told the crowd that "if you have been successful you didn't get that on your own...If you've got a business you didn't build that!" [video]
It was another Joe the Plumber moment and a revealing glimpse into Obama's thinking that nothing is possible without big government and the bigger the better.
It was also a smack in the face of small business who struggle every day to survive in the Obama era whose big government policies and over regulation have made success so much harder to achieve.
