Star of Romney's "Built That" ad received millions in government loans

The guy Romney hired to attack Obama for saying government played a role in his business received millions in government loans and contracts.

“I’m not going to turn a blind eye because the money came from the government,” Gilchrest said. “As far as I’m concerned, I’m getting some of my tax money back. I’m not stupid, I’m not going to say ‘no.’ Shame on me if I didn’t use what’s available.”

How many of the people who have appeared in Obama ads have had their life history searched and broadcast to the world? Because I can think of at least 3 Obama opposers who have.

I'm more interested how a guy who has had his hand out to government can shite on the President for saying government helped him.

He would've been better suited for an Obama ad on how government helps small businesses.

The businessman, Jack Gilchrist, also acknowledged that in the 1980s the company received a U.S. Small Business Administration loan totaling “somewhere south of” $500,000, and matching funds from the federally-funded New England Trade Adjustment Assistance Center.
So now working for the governemnt = goverment building business? Who's responsible for contract performance?

This isht's gotten ridiculous. Hell, let's go all the way back... Government didn't build America, the Indians did.

considering that was in the 1980's he took those loans out, we can be pretty damn sure they have been payed back to the government WITH interest.

Right...

quote:

Gilchrist Metal, “received $800,000 in tax-exempt revenue bonds issued by the New Hampshire Business Finance Authority ‘to set up a second manufacturing plant and purchase equipment to produce high definition television broadcasting equipment’…”
This the only part that resemebles government "help". And it's not millions, it's hundreds of thousands. For a business that requries what a steel fabricator takes, you're not talking about a lot of money. AT ALL.

And even if you buy into the premise that government loans = building a business.... Gilcrest was successful in turning it into a successful operation. Obama "built" Solyndra for a lot more in "help".

So you are upset at a guy who was given a government loan and payed it back? The outrage. He should have just sat his arse on the porch and wait for that gubment check, like a real American.

There are those pesky facts that keep negating any argument these fools have trying to defend that fool which was elected to the Presidency. Respect the office, but it does not mean you have to respect the person occupying it at the moment.

“Defense business is a good way to help the economy. But the President wants to cut the crap out of the defense budget.”


And the star of Romney's ad also thinks government spending helps the economy.

Crazy

Did he get 500 million like Solyndra, or 200 million like Fiskar? Those two companies alone were given DOE loans and both have gone the way of the Dodo.

No, not upset at all. But YOU guys are upset because Obama made the obvious point that government helps small businesses.

The guy Romney put in his ad to shite on the Pres for saying government helped, actually received help from the government.

Don't you consider a consider a loan help? When somebody asks for a loan, they're asking for help.

If I link to the text of obama's comments in VA, can you point out the part where he says this?
