As he tries to deflect attention from his lousy record to Mitt Romney’s tax returns, Obama sounds more ridiculous by the day. Last week at a campaign stop in Roanoke, VA, Obama declared people don't build businesses.

“If you’ve got a business you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet, so then all the companies could make money off the Internet. The point is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together,” said Obama.

If people don't build businesses, what the HELL do all of us do all day? We the people, who build and work at businesses, pay taxes that fund Obama’s salary and government. So businesses are people. And people who achieve success through hard work should not have their money taxed at higher rates and redistributed to others to subsidize their prosperity. That’s called collectivism another word for socialism another word for communism another word for the nanny state.

In a fiery retort from a rally in Pittsburgh, Romney reminded Obama, people work hard to build businesses and ‘‘I tell you this. I'm convinced that he wants Americans to be ashamed of success.’’

As a former business owner Romney said, ‘‘To say that Steve Jobs didn’t build Apple, that Henry Ford didn’t build Ford Motors, that Papa John didn’t build Papa John Pizza ... To say something like that, it’s not just foolishness. It’s insulting to every entrepreneur, every innovator in America.’’

This election isn’t about Mitt Romney’s tax returns. This election is about restoring America and her people to prosperity again which Obama failed to do. As a former governor, who worked with Democrats, brought down Massachusetts unemployment, reformed education and a former CEO of Bain Capital who helped companies thrive and create jobs, Romney is immensely more qualified to lead the country out of this malaise than Obama. On the trail, Romney talks of uplifting all Americans out of this economic nightmare through reduced government spending, tax reform and repealing job killing laws like Obamacare.

During their joint interview with Charlie Rose, Michelle Obama said, smiling, “I mean, hope doesn’t get actualized in three and a half years.”

Hope doesn’t rule a nation, results and effective policy do; two things that will never be actualized under Obama. This president is destroying our country from the inside out and the outside in. If Obama was white, the media and liberal Americans would have excoriated him LONG AGO. OBAMA HAS NO CLUE WHAT HE IS DOING AND IS MORE CONCERNED WITH HIMSELF THAN AMERICA’S PROSPERITY. It’s time for Mitt Romney. Let the race begin!
