And Russian guys is staying quiet on this one -- -- -- all of our president Obama's remarks about business.
One we've got.
A president campaigning.
If you added Disney you didn't build and somebody else made -- -- -- I I don't understand why anybody.
Who was ever amounted get any -- or won't sue.
Cannot be -- Horrified by this -- him.
That's a question I'm never going to have answered it'll it'll never be understandable to me.
-- because there's too much -- rationality.
In the world and your rationality is inexplicable.
Wasn't all that long ago the people -- got lectured in this country where the people who were lazy.
He got lectured if you were doing nothing kind of guy you parents -- bureau.
High school guidance counselors teachers whatever election you didn't do anything you're only you're the one they got election -- we were sitting around.
Blazing it all up cannot accomplish -- your god you got -- now.
The people being lectured to in this country are those who succeed are those who achieve.
Many small business owners are steamed about president Obama's remarks Catherine Bragg is one of them she's the owner of flower child bakery and cafe near San Cisco she's -- before I'm on the record to talk to us and she's back tonight nice to see you -- Hi Greta thanks for having me back.
I did I know from our past conversations say in how wild about said that about President Obama I'm curious so -- your small businessperson.
Have his remarks.
Had any impact on your view about him.
Well unfortunately they sort of solidified my views of him I think he spoke pretty much what he thinks.
And when he's left to do that off the teleprompter it can be very enlightening for those of us are paying attention so I found his remarks quite derogatory.
And I found them to be a slap in the face of one small business owner here in this country.
So when I look at him as a president I'm disappointed because he doesn't speak to me.
And he doesn't speak to -- 400 -- they're thirty businesses and my business association he doesn't speak to the other.
Eighty or 90% of the economy that are small business owner so I find it to be really disappointing.
Isn't that he -- using words I think derogatory couldn't be simply that he has an idea -- IG about how hard you know how big government should be -- what the role of -- that is is vastly different than yours -- do you think he was actually being insulting to you and all your -- -- hard work in your business.
Well I you bring up a good point and I think there is a difference in the way we think and I do believe that he is telling us what he thinks and we need to listen to that.
But I do find it disappointing he is our president.
And he should be speaking for all citizens and he should be looking at the American way which is what I'm trying to keep alive which is what I believed then and I'm not alone.
Millions of people come to this country with the same belief that I -- god where is born in this country and get to experience.
He it does not understand what it means to be.
A citizen of the United States and what this country was founded on and what people get up every single day and go to work and believe then.
Those of us are elevating ourselves and bringing others up with us he does not believe that and I think that's fundamentally wrong for me when I look at my president I don't appreciate that.
Do you think -- governor Romney it would be if -- president Romney who would make it any better for your business.
Well my -- personal -- which -- come to rather recently threw up profound meeting with the person.
Who's with Fox News was my -- is thinking is that.
The government and elected officials that we have.
I would like to see them look at deregulating I would like to see them looking out the laws on the books and really determining which ones are most important because.
I think work.
I'll work over litigated or -- over saturated with -- Will governor Romney if he's elected will he walk into office with that same notion that he's not there to create additional laws that create additional burden.
Is he in fact going to be there and understand what it is to be -- US -- to go out and work every day.
Try to make a better life for yourself and your family what can the government do to get out of our way.
That's why I would elect anybody regardless of the party it's not about parties anymore it's about a philosophical understanding.
Of what it is as good citizens out here every day.
And the person that's at the head of the United States.
Can make things a lot better for everybody or they can turn it makes them a lot worse.
And I think governor Romney today -- Spoke a lot more passionately about what he believes that similar to my beliefs the American dream is what we're here -- it's it's what it's all about.
It creates the most amount of wealth out there it's -- most the most profound system in the world I've traveled to other countries.
I really want a person who was ahead in the states here speaking networks -- -- gonna guess a quick question you made a reference to -- and is quite catches someone you spoke to -- Fox News.
Yes I had a chance to meet Johns docile one person.
That's okay yeah.
-- has -- idea I had was unaware of any of this.
Well it was just something that happened recently because of his book I had a chance for him -- find his book and the interesting thing was he spoke with me about.
You know my notion is that government is there to help and that's true but if we're not careful I think many of the citizens -- tend to go too far with that notion and we tend to think maybe because the governments there that we should be getting some kind of checks back from the government and that's free money and it's not free money.
And maybe we should look at officials now and say -- I'll let you what can you do to help dismantle government what can you do to help take whatever it is that's on the books and really examine our these laws really necessary for our society he'd be productive.
Catherine thank you are --
