‘This Man Hates This Country’: Limbaugh Excoriates Obama for Telling Business Owners ‘You Didn’t Build That’

 

Rush Limbaugh on his radio show Monday slammed President Obama‘s assertion that America’s business owners are not responsible for what they have built. He also accused the president of plagiarizing Elizabeth Warren who made nearly identical statements previously.

Limbaugh explained Obama and Warren are misguided and believe the government is “the center of everything,” something he says stands in direct opposition to the principles that America was founded upon.

“Now, a couple of interesting things about this. Let’s look at roads, for example. Which came first, the paved road or the car? Well, which necessitated which? I would submit to you that the car came along, and then the government built the roads. What Obama and Elizabeth Warren want you to believe is that government is the center of everything, that government starts everything. And government doesn’t. Government reacts,” Limbaugh said.

He continued: “It is the market that built cars, it was somebody, it was a bunch of people that built cars. It was a bunch of people who invented the assembly line to make them efficiently and quickly. Government had nothing to do with it… This is a bunch of people with miserable, meaningless lives, lying to themselves, trying to tell themselves that they matter.”

Just to recap, this is what Obama had to say to business owners at a campaign rally in Roanoke, Va. on Friday:

There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me — because they want to give something back. They know they didn’t — look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something — there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there. [Emphasis added]

“I think it can now be said, without equivocation, without equivocation, this man hates this country,” said Limbaugh after playing the Obama clip. “He is trying, Barack Obama, is trying to dismantle brick-by-brick the American dream.”

Limbaugh argued it is Obama’s upbringing that led him to harbor such a radical, leftist ideology steeped in Marxist “class-driven economics.”

“He was indoctrinated as a child, his father was a communist, his mother was a leftist. Sent to prep Ivy League schools where is contempt for the country was reinforced. He moved to Chicago, it was the home of the radical left movement. He hooks up with Ayers and Dohrn, Rashid Khalidi…”

“This is what we have as a president: a radical ideologue, ruthless politician who despises the country and the way it was founded and the way in which it became great,” he concluded.

Just one more of the many reasons I LOVE Rush! He makes more sense than most anyone else I can think of, except maybe Glenn!

I do not listen to Rush but every once in a blue.And I do not always agree with what he says or how he says it BUT this is so on target.People need to open their eyes to what the man (Obama) is clearly saying.It really could not be any clearer other than him flat out stating he hates the country and wants to change it into HIS idea of what it should be.

And again I am going to point out how Obama speaks of how the wealthy should do as he thinks they should and spread their wealth around and yet Obama IS one of the wealthy and has no track record of doing so himself.So whats that tell ya? hmm?

You go, Rush!!!

This quote sums up odumba quite well:

"This is what we have as a president: a radical ideologue, ruthless politician who despises the country and the way it was founded and the way in which it became great,” he concluded."

I really like Rush Limbaugh, I listen to him every morning :)  I agree with almost everything he has ever said on the radio.  He also is entertaining!!  lol.  He was spot on when he was speaking about what Obama said in that speech about American people & businesses.  I don't know about he rest of you here, but Obama is getting 'scary' in the outragous things he is saying.  To me, it seems like Obama wants to destroy this Country.  He has insulted the American people more one once in his speeches.  What I just don't understand is, WHY ANYONE can't see this & yet still vote for him.

No sense in argueing this with those who long for huge government control and expansion though.Some seem incapable of feeling secure in their own capabilities ..therefore they have to have big government step in and tell them/show them the way.
