President Obama recently said, “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”
Small business owners all over America took offense at this incorrect view that government (instead of elbow grease, intelligence, and good-old-fashioned risk taking) is the bedrock of our economy.
Since the President doesn’t understand how our economy works, let’s take a moment to explain how small businesses are created… More importantly, let’s show him the businesses we’ve made and who has made them. Please send me your photos — either e-mail me (via BristolsBlog @ gmail.com, without the space!) or tweet me at this blog’s brand new Twitter account (@BristolsBlog) using the hashtag #IBuiltThis.
Be creative! The photo can be of you working or of your small business. Make it fun, by putting yourself in the photo holding up a sign that tells the President “I Built This!”
Don’t forget to tell me your name, location, and business website!!
Let’s give the President a little lesson on how this country works. And let’s hurry, because he only has a few months left on the job!
There’s my photo — send me yours!
Thank you for all the photos! See the “I Built This: The Video!”
