Even in context, Obama’s “You didn’t build it” line to fawning leftists in Virginia is a horrible opening into the soulless ideology of our most liberal President ever. No acknowledgement at all of the hard work, sweat, and hours most of America’s entrepreneurs put in to become successful. None. They owe it all to the largess of their government betters.
As if the roads they travel to work and back were gifts from government, not the taxpayer-funded, pothole-strewn ribbons of asphalt they really are. As if the police and firefighters who protect them do so of the largess of government, not because those same people pay taxes to have them there. Business people got together and decided to pool their money in the form of taxes to have those things. It wasn’t a grant from Obama or his leftists predecessors, it was a necessary evil that Barry and his ideological soul mates have turned to evil to further their own political ambitions.
Needless to say, the people who actually have created jobs in this country (hint: it’s not people like B. Hussein Obama who spend their lives trashing the system when it works, and lauding it when it doesn’t) are thoroughly pissed off, and most aren’t very appreciative at being trashed by Obama in his remarks.
They’re hitting back.
