Obama supporters (not to mention the president himself) sure are high on job-creating small businesses these last few days. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney and Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid were just two who tweeted their support of “You Didn’t Build That Saturday” — sorry, “Small Business Saturday.” President Obama himself made a high-profile trip to a local bookstore.
Comedian Patton Oswalt has found two small businesses in L.A., a paper maker and a print shop, that are too hip to fail. Anthony Cumia of the “Opie and Anthony” radio show, though, has also noticed an uptick in interest in the survival of small businesses.
No witty rejoinder yet, but we imagine it would go something like this.
Nonsensical? No, this is nonsensical. Out? Blame Bush. In? Blame Walmart. Oswalt responds to the right-wing douchebags cluttering his timeline.
So, small business owners: is it true that most of you just want to make a livable profit from those businesses you didn’t build? If your ambitions aren’t any higher than that, a second Obama term might be the right business climate for you. Be sure to close up before you get too successful, though, and start hurting your competitors. Cool?
