    Obama revealed his Marxist sentiments in Roanoke, Virginia some days ago. But anyone with half his brain working knew this 4 years ago when the man was confronted by Joe the Plumber.

    Obama Slams Business, Belittles Success


    Most Americans find President Obama’s recent comments belittling success to be shocking. But if you paid attention to what the Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr. was preaching for the 20 years Obama sat in his pews, you were not at all surprised.

    During a talk in Roanoke, Va., Obama diminished successful people by saying no one gets there on his own. "If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen,” Obama said.

    Obama cited the fact that everyone needs teachers, roads, and bridges. Well, of course they do. But to detract from the achievement of any successful person — whether a student graduating from college or a Thomas Alva Edison, Steve Jobs, or Bill Gates — is to attack the very essence of what makes America great.

    Referring to Obama’s comment as “foolishness,” Mitt Romney aptly said the president wants Americans to be “ashamed of success.” The presidential candidate said he found it “extraordinary that a philosophy of that nature would be spoken by the president of the United States.”​
