How She "Built It": Fox's RNC Theme Undercut By Key Speaker's Business Success
Blog 56 minutes ago CAITLIN GINLEY

The experience of a small business owner who will be promoted at the Republican National Convention sharply diverges from the right-wing media myth her speech is intended to promote.

On the day that the GOP convention will tout Fox-fueled myth "We Built It" as its primary theme, Delaware Lt. Gov. candidate and small business owner Sher Valenzuela is slated to deliver a speech about small business issues. But contrary to the evening's theme, Valenzuela's company, First State Manufacturing, has received millions of dollars in federal loans and contracts. Valenzuela has not only attributed her success in part to this outside assistance, but urged other small business owners to follow the same strategy of seeking government funds.

But when FoxNews.com reported on Valenzuela's scheduled speech, these facts were absent:

An RNC official tells FOX News Tuesday's schedule also includes a speech by Sher Valenzeula, a Latina candidate for Lieutenant Governor in Delaware. Her campaign website notes she and her husband started an upholstery business that makes padding for baseball umpires and military vests worn by members of the Israeli military.

The "We Built It" convention theme is based on Fox's distortion of comments made by President Obama, who remarked that business owners succeed with the help of "this unbelievable American system" that includes government spending on infrastructure and education. The right-wing media has deceptively edited Obama's comments to suggest that the president was insulting small business owners, an attack promptly adopted by Republicans; according to FoxNews.com, Valenzuela's speech is "meant to directly contrast" Obama's remarks.

In fact, much as Obama suggested, Valenzuela appears to have succeeded through a combination of her own entrepreneurship and government assistance. She has in the past explained that government assistance was a vital factor in the success of her company. Earlier this year, Valenzuela gave a presentation on her small business success, crediting the use of "millions of dollars in secure government contracts."



The presentation notes that small business owners should start with a "secret weapon" -- the "no-cost/low-cost resources that you, the taxpayer, have already paid for."

Indeed, Valenzuela's company has received more than $2 million in federal loans and more than $15 million in federal contracts.

A Small Business Administration document that names Valenzuela and her company's co-owners "Delaware 2012 Small Business Persons of the Year" details four SBA loans the business has received at various stages of its growth.

First State Manufacturing received an initial $20,000 SBA loan soon after Valenzuela and her husband Eli reportedly started the business out of their garage. FSM received $96,500 in 2001 when the company "was ready to grow again," and a $65,800 SBA disaster loan "after the 9/11 tragedy and its economic fallout" in order to "maintain their business and employees until revenues returned."

Today, the company employs "more than 40 technicians working in a new 66,000 square-foot facility funded by a $1.8 million U.S. Small Business Administration 504 loan," according to the SBA document.

FSM has also benefited from $15 million in federal contracts since 2001, about 66 percent of which were non-competitive dollars. The company received at least $1.5 million each year from fiscal 2006 to 2011, with a high of $3.8 million in 2009. In fiscal 2012, it has received more than half a million dollars in contracts.

FSM, a Milford, DE-based manufacturer of "soft goods and industrial textile product solutions" serves as the "sole source capable" for military products like "V-22 Aircraft Plugs & covers" and "F-16 Curtains & Insulation." Its customers include Air Force bases and Department of Defense supply centers as well as defense contractors like Lockheed Martin, Mohawk Electrical Systems, and IAI/Golan Industries.

The convention theme on August 28, when Valenzuela is expected to speak, "will honor the fact that it is the drive, determination and sacrifice of America's job creators and millions of hard-working American men and women who made the United States the exceptional nation it is." RNC chairman Reince Priebus has said of Valenzuela's participation that "we are thrilled to have Sher on our convention schedule and excited to share her story."

It remains to be seen whether Fox News and the media at large will be as eager to share the full details of Valenzuela's business success.

In the mind of the GOP that qualifies as building it yourself. What a huge load of cr*p they're going to be dishing out at that convention! Hope Isaac doesn't sling it all over the rest of us.

Being a fair citizen of the fine city of Tampa, most of us are hoping at the very least Isaac keeps most of the riff raff, you know, the politicians, away.
Maybe we'll get lucky and it will be cancelled!

How ironic with the wording "How She Built It". Everyone knows the GOP is the party that looks out for women - equal wages, birth control, choice.

The fact this woman's company received federal loans and some government contracts doesn't undercut her success at all.

I think we've seen that's no guarantee of success or even survival, even if there are also adjacent roads and bridges! Far from it.

For some reason, her company became successful and did survive. How?

Possibly because she had the support of people who helped her succeed?

Do you think the ability to attract and retain supporters (customers) has anything to do with the skills and talent of the individual business owner?

That's the part of Obama's rant that was the most bothersome. The, "lots of people are smart" and "lots of people out there work hard" statements. Most people would weigh those qualities heavily in determining success or failure, but apparently not Barack Obama.

Clearly, he doesn't consider those attributes all that special and I'm at a loss to explain why he would go out of his way to diminish the efforts of those that possess them.

Those comments were first made by Elizabeth Warren.

"Elizabeth Warren said it better than Barack Obama. And the president's presentation wasn't helped when supporters of Mitt Romney edited his words. Sadly, lost in a squabble over "you didn't build that" was the opportunity for a more serious conversation about social contracts.

Last August, while contemplating a run for the U.S. Senate against Scott Brown, Warren offered a fiery defense of liberal economic theory at an event in Andover, Mass. Two minutes' worth of what she said became a YouTube sensation that has now been viewed nearly a million times. That her remarks appeared extemporaneous and from the heart made the clip all the more watchable.

Warren was rebutting GOP charges of class warfare based on her argument that one's ability to become financially successful in America is contingent in part on an environment that has been created and supported by all. She said, "There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own. Nobody." And then she hit her stride:

"You built a factory out there? Good for you," she says. "But I want to be clear: You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for; you hired workers the rest of us paid to educate; you were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn't have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory, and hire someone to protect against this, because of the work the rest of us did."

As for the tax implications, Warren said, "Now look, you built a factory and it turned into something terrific, or a great idea? God bless. Keep a big hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is, you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along." The crowd enthusiastically applauded.

Ten months ago, upon watching the clip, I said on the radio that, unlike President Obama, Warren had found her voice with a finely honed message for the middle class. While the size of the "hunk" that should be paid "forward for the next kid" is debatable, her underlying premise was solid.

Finally, two weeks ago, Obama attempted to take a page out of her campaign manual while speaking at a fire station in Roanoke, Va. But the president's presentation lacked Warren's clarity, and it was then taken out of context by Romney supporters.

Unfortunately, both sides have been quick to cut and paste, as evidenced by the unfair attention paid to Romney's "I like to fire people" remark, which was actually a statement about bad service.

In this case, from a discussion that spanned several paragraphs, Obama's remarks were reduced to this: "If you've got a business, you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen."

That statement was then used to further a fictitious narrative of the president as a socialist, assaulting entrepreneurship. American Crossroads, a political organization connected to Karl Rove, quickly produced a commercial purporting to show small-business owners reacting to that one line on an iPad and noting their responses: "Unbelievable"; "What an insult"; "I am outraged"; "I can't believe he just said that"; "We risk everything every day"; "It came from my personal savings."

But the context of Obama's two sentences was a far cry from an assault on American entrepreneurship. He was arguing that, while he was willing to cut government waste, he would not gut investments that grow the economy or give tax breaks to the likes of himself or Romney. And then came this:

There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me -- because they want to give something back. They know they didn't -- look, if you've been successful, you didn't get there on your own. You didn't get there on your own. I'm always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something -- there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there.

If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you've got a business -- you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn't get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.

The point is, is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together. There are some things, just like fighting fires, we don't do on our own. I mean, imagine if everybody had their own fire service. That would be a hard way to organize fighting fires.

Obama then cited the funding of the G.I. Bill, the creation of the middle class, the construction of the Golden Gate Bridge and Hoover Dam, inventing the Internet, and landing on the moon as examples of what he was talking about.

The trouble with the president's remarks? They extended beyond the 20-second attention span of this campaign. And when the edited version made the rounds, a legitimate, substantive conversation about social contracts was instead reduced to silly charges of socialism.

This piece was originally published in The Philadelphia Inquirer."

It doesn't undercut her success at all. What it does is put into context exactly what Obama was talking about in his speech. Remember, the speech that the Republicans isolated one sentence from and then changed the context trying to make it sound as if Obama meant that people literally didn't start their own businesses. He was talking about infrastructure as well as things like loans and government contracts of which her business may have not succeeded without. She will be the perfect example for the Dems to straighten out how the context of Obama's speech was completely changed by the Republicans and will galvanize what Obama was talking about in that speech.

What are they going to use to "straighten out" the fact that Obama was inspired by, and endorsed the OWS movement? The intellectually shallow sentiment that if you're successful you must have stolen it and that you're the problem.

His "You didn't build that" comments were not an isolated glimpse into the mind of Obama and how he views capitalism. They fit perfectly with "things are better when we spread the wealth around" and "at some point you've made enough money." Two of the most repugnant statements ever told to a country built on free enterprise capitalism.

I don't see how the government loans and contracts that Ms. Valenzuela's company received diverges from the believe that entrepreneurs create businesses. I agree that President Obama did not intend to say "you did not create that business," but the entire speech makes it sound like businesses owe everything to the government, and there success is not due to hard work, long hours, enormous risk, intellect, etc. The fact is that they pay a lot more taxes already. That is how the tax system is set up. You make more, you pay more.

A government backed loan (SBA loan) is not a handout. You have to pay that loan back with interest just like every other loan. The government guarantees a percentage of that loan for the private bank that issues it to the customer. If you don't pay it back, they take whatever you put up for collateral and probably a lot more, just like every other loan.

I agree that a successful business gets better use out of taxpayer funded projects such as roads, police, fire departments, etc. Those businesses also pay a lot more in taxes than the individual. They also employ people so they can pay taxes.

Should she have turned down the contracts from the government just because the customer was the government and not a private company/individual? Her company still had to produce an acceptable product for those government contracts. They still had to put in the work. There was obviously a need for the product.

Ms. Warren's comments make it sound like that company does not pay taxes.

"You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for; you hired workers the rest of us paid to educate; you were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn't have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory, and hire someone to protect against this, because of the work the rest of us did."

She leaves out that the company also helped pay for those things, a larger amount than most.

That comment wasn't taken out of context at all. It fit perfectly with the context of the whole speech - that it's not about the individual, but about the group. A classic divide between individualism vs collectivism. "You didn't build that" would be taken out of context only if it didn't fit the rest of the speech, but it did!

Oh, wait. Did Wisconsin give them the power plants yet? I get confused.

How about if we post an endless list of businesses located adjacent to public roads, connected to the power supply, and using public water that went BELLY UP due to a lack of talent, skill, or work ethic neccesary to make it a success?

Again, it depends on the skill level of the individuals running the businesses. Some are nimble and well-run enough by individuals with the ability to adapt and survive.

I know in my town businesses are hurting becuase of the road construction on Main Street. People have a hard time getting to the businesses on the main drag, and will have for almost another year. Most folks gp elsewhere to shop for now. There are groups of Chamber members going around and buying stuff to try to help them out, but its not enough, and many are afraid they will go under. Having been a small business owner I can assure you there are a myrid of factors that affect the bottom line and whether you will survive or not, and many are out fo your control.

Warren happened to have said it better than Obama, but she's right and so is he:

"You built a factory out there? Good for you," she says. "But I want to be clear: You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for; you hired workers the rest of us paid to educate; you were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn't have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory, and hire someone to protect against this, because of the work the rest of us did."

Actually Dave Lakoff the Democrat "communication expert" came up with the original idea, not Warren. But where do they think the money comes from to pay for the roads, teachers, police and fire services?

Government bake sales?

Obviously, the whole idea pretty much blew up in their faces.
