Georgia Business Owner Tells Obama to “Kiss My A**” Over President’s “You Didn’t Build It” Comment

It just won’t go away for the White House.   President Obama’s comments about business owners and developers is still a firestorm, and now a Georgia business owner has put up the most strongly-worded response seen yet.

Ray Gaster built and owns Gaster Lumber & Hardware in Savannah, Georgia, and has told the president to “kiss my XXX.” In trying to emphasize that we all have had great teachers, or inspirations and help at times in our life, Obama touched off a firestorm when he finished it by saying “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.

Obama might have been able to dodge this one, or explain it away, if he had not spent the last three-plus years emphasizing that we Americans cannot seemingly survive without his, or government’s, help. Given his actions and history, it’s clear what his intentions were, regardless of him trying to persuade everyone he believes in the private sector.

Gastor has made up several signs that read, “I built this business without government help. Obama can kiss my XXX. I’m Ray Gaster, and I approve this message.”

While his sign has been criticized for its strong language, Gaster said he wanted to respond to Obama in “Chicago language — something he’s used to.”

Well played, Mr. Gaster, well played!
