Mitt hits Obama in web video: Does not "understand" how small business works

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--Mitt Romney's team released a web video on Thursday timed to President Barack Obama's rally this evening in Leesburg, in northern Virginia. The video hits Obama again for his remark about U.S. business--that people did not build companies on their own, part of a larger comment about the roles and relationships of government and business.

The web video, from the Romney campaign: "These Hands: Virginia." Small businesses are the lifeblood of our economy. But President Obama's comments show that he just doesn't understand who the real job creators are. How can he help small businesses, like those in Virginia, when he doesn't even recognize their value?"
