Publisher says Obama clueless about business
You've probably already read President Barack Obama's recent comments about business creation that were interpreted by many business owners and entrepreneurs as a slam against all those who have worked hard to achieve the American dream of owning a business. But if you've been living under a rock lately, here's what Obama said: "If you've got a business, you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen." Count Business Report Publisher Rolfe McCollister among those who were surprised by the president's comments—and offended. "Now that was clearly the view of someone who has never started or owned a business. Clueless," McCollister writes in his latest column. "Stop right there, President Obama. You are 'disrespectin'' the people who helped build this great nation—the entrepreneur who came up with an idea and risked it all, working seven days a week, sacrificing with his family to succeed—and now you are giving credit to 'somebody else.' You are insulting and not fit to lead this great county. Read the complete column here for McCollister's response to a number of remarks Obama made about starting and owning a business at that now infamous stump speech in Roanoke, Virginia.
