Most Democrat politicians have attacked large business for being successful (i.e., "large"). Obama is a bit more honest in the sense that he takes the logical step of attacking *all* business owners, large and small. After all, there is no reason to make the odd distinction of calling "small" businesses virtuous, but large ones villainous. Thus, when Obama said: ""If you've got a business -- you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen," that is just the next logical step in the statist-oriented philosophy.
