“These Hands: Let’s Show the President Just How Much They Can Do”

Posted: July 30, 2012 at 12:05 pm   /   by

It’s been nearly two weeks since President Barack Obama verbally slapped business owners in the face by stating that they “didn’t build” their businesses.

Speaking to a group of his supporters in Virginia on July 13th Obama emphatically proclaimed, “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that.  Somebody else made that happen.”

The Romney camp has seized the quote and run with it, as they should have, releasing a series of YouTube videos titled “These Hands” and asking for others to tell their story at

Obama has responded by saying he was taken out of context and claiming he wants small business owners to succeed.

Problem is he has done nothing to back up that sentiment over the last four years.

The first video in the series “These Hands: Nevada” features Nevada small business owner Joe Dutra of Kimmie Candy Company criticizing the President and his track record.

“Who, Mr. President, built my business? Who took the risk? Who put in the long hours? Your words are bad enough, but your actions over the last four years speak even louder,”Dutra narrates over shots of his employees hard at work.

Apparently Dutra is not alone in his disapproval of the President’s business policies.  The most recent Gallup poll shows that nearly 6 in 10 business owners are unsatisfied with the current regime.

Those polls were taken BEFORE the President made his true feelings known on July 13th.

There is no telling what the next poll will show now that he has made it clear that the owner’s have little to nothing to do with their company’s successes.

The President’s efforts in turning around the struggling economy have had little effect over the past four years for business owners.

At a time when new employees are getting straight in the unemployment line and potential employers are being handcuffed by the President’s business policies, you would think he would make the time to fix the problem.

He hasn’t, and his track record suggests that nothing will change if we sign up for four more years.

We need to unite and elect a candidate who has faced similar problems in the past and came out on top.

It’s time to show the president what “These Hands” are made of.
