If government made the success happen, what about the failures? All those failed Dot Com startups? They used the same internet as Google and FaceBook. Solyndra used the same roads as ExxonMobile. Failed businesses and successful business had the same bridges.

But happily for the Solyndra investors, they did not take the same risk as other successful businesses. Those investors had bundled big contributions for The 0 in '08, and The 0 helped to prevent them from taking ANY losses when their business failed.

THAT is how The 0 sees business and small business creators. And HE shall pick the winners--even if they are actually losers.
President Barack Obama's recent business-related comments in Virginia ("If you've got a business -- you didn't build that; somebody else made that happen") sounded more communistic than capitalistic, especially because the "somebody" to whom Obama referred was in fact the U.S. government.

Progressives and the mainstream media were quick to come to the aid of the president by stating that similar statements have been said by other entrepreneurial moguls, such as Henry Ford, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Andrew Carnegie and Walter Chrysler. Others excused Obama by saying he "borrowed" his business verbiage from Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren.
