Obama Wants Americans To be Ashamed Of Success – Romney On the Attack!
I am liking the fired up Mitt!
From fox News
Mitt Romney hammered President Obama on the stump Tuesday over the president’s recent comments on the relationship between government and business, saying his opponent wants Americans to be “ashamed of success.”The Republican presidential candidate seized on Obama’s gaffe Friday in which he suggested businesses owe their success in large part to government investment and said to business owners, “you didn’t build that.”
Romney, speaking to a crowd outside Pittsburgh, worked the comments into his campaign theme that Obama represents a big-government approach harmful to business. He called the comments “startling and revealing,” returning to them repeatedly throughout his address.
“I’m convinced he wants Americans to be ashamed of success,” Romney said. “I want Americans to welcome and to celebrate success. … I don’t want government to take credit for what the individuals of America accomplish.”
Romney suggested the comment was tantamount to saying Steve Jobs didn’t build Apple or Ray Kroc didn’t build McDonald’s, calling the notion “insulting” and wrong.
The Friday remark has dogged Obama for days. Romney has been joined by prominent business groups including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in firing back at the statement.
