tyler, tx — President Obama recently turned heads when he said this during a speech:
"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."
Yes, there are. But, does this send a message where the president is really going with all this?
Not everyone succeeds, but, we have the right to pursue life, liberty and happiness.
Just the right to pursue. It doesn't mean we will get there.
Yes, Mr. President, we breath the same air and teachers taught us whet we know, but then there is the next dimension of doing something with it.
I don't know why he is so jealous of people who have made it. He's made it.
He went on to say If you've got a business, you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen.
Tell that to all the business owners here in East Texas not buying their family things to make a payroll.
Tell that to business owners here who didn't sleep last night wondering how they are going to make payroll because they've made a huge risk by starting and growing a business.
Tell that to successful people who bet the farm that they would succeed and they did after enormous sacrifice. Those people are winners.
And let me ask you this, when your small business goes belly up because everyone is so scared to buy anything because of whats going on in Washington D.C., guess who's got your back--- no one.
I guess the president has a hard time recognizing winners since he keeps betting on losers like Solyndra.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
