Romney Ad Hits Obama for Insulting Small Business Owners

By Newsmax Wires

The Mitt Romney campaign has launched a new Internet ad ridiculing President Barack Obama for denigrating small business owners.

The ad, titled 'These Hands,' begins with a clip of the president talking about those who own businesses. “If you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own,” Obama said. “I’m always struck by people who think it must be because I was so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there.”

Another common thought is that “it must be because I worked harder than everybody else,” Obama said. “If you have a business, you didn’t build that, somebody else made that happen.”



Jack Gilchrist, president of Gilchrest Metal Fabricating Co. in Hudson, N.H., proceeds to offer a rebuttal in the video.

“My father’s hands didn’t build this company? My hands didn’t build this company? My son’s hands aren’t building this company?” he asks sarcastically.

“President Obama, you’re killing us out here. Through hard work and a little bit of luck, we built this business. Why are you demonizing us for it? We’re the solution, not the problem. It’s time we had somebody who believes in us, someone who believes that achievement should be rewarded, not punished. We need somebody who believes in America.”

Then comes a clip of Romney. “The idea to say that Steve Jobs didn’t build Apple or that Henry Ford didn’t build Ford Motor, to say something like that isn’t just foolish, it’s insulting to every entrepreneur, every innovator in America,” the Republican presidential candidate says.

“And it’s wrong. President Obama attacks success and therefore under President Obama we have less success. I will change that.”
