"When I began the company, it was just me. So by definition, I certainly started it myself. I didn’t get money from a bank or from an investor. I started the company with the confidence that made me willing to risk a year’s worth of savings, even if I ended up not making a dime writing and selling software."

Ben Bruno, Op-Ed, “Mr. President: I Did Build My Business,” Richmond Times-Dispatch, 7/22/12. Entrepreneurs, like Ben Bruno, who come up with big ideas and take risks make America the unique and great nation it is. They’re the lifeblood of the economy and ought to be encouraged, not denigrated.

On the other hand, the president has used out-of-date data to unfairly criticize Romney’s Medicare plan. For straight fact-checking on both campaigns, follow the Post’s Fact Checker.
