North Carolina small business owners gathered in Raleigh Wednesday to speak out against President Obama’s remarks on business success earlier this month, reports WTVD in Raleigh:
“It’s almost like someone just slapped me in the face, it was me that built this company,” Raleigh business owner Juan Ponce said.
Ponce was one of a few business owners who rallied at Snoopy’s Hot Dogs on Wake Forest Road Wednesday morning to affirm that they did, in fact, build their own businesses. [...]
Fetzer read the speech the President gave earlier this month in Roanoke, Virginia word for word during the event, to underscore they weren’t taking it out of context.
