Ryan slams Obama in Roanoke

By Beth Fouhy

ROANOKE, Va. (AP) - GOP running mate Paul Ryan says President Obama's "you didn't build that" remark explains why the U.S. recovery has been so sluggish.

At a campaign rally in Roanoke, Va., the Wisconsin congressman said it revealed Obama's "mindset" of favoring big government overprivate entrepreneurs — and shows why his policies have failed to create jobs.

Last month, at a Roanoke fire station, Obama said successful businesses depend on things like bridges and schools that governments created — and said to successful business owners, "You didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen." Since then, Mitt Romney and his running mate have denounced the comment as anti-business. Obama's campaign insists his words have been taken out of context.

    Ozero is the one that ‘needs to be taken out’; tarred, feathered, and run out of town on a rail. He genuinely needs to be replaced in November before he can do any more damage to this great nation. This man and Biteme are a ‘two man wrecking crew’ for a constitutional republic. The only thing that will help this duo is to be ousted from government totally and finally. There needs to be so complete a separation of our country and Ozero / Biteme that everyone forgets who they were.

      The sane people in this country were betrayed and manipulated by the MSM who presented an image of a charismatic, competent and non-extremist who had no skeletons in his closet. Only after the election did some realize they had elected a community organizer of Black voters for the Chicago machine whose background and beliefs were unknown to everyone but those who selected and funded his campaign; some of these supporters have been revealed by the payoffs to organized labor, solar power manufacturers etc.
