Is anyone surprised? Small Businessman Who Critiqued Obama at GOP Convention Got $850,000 in Government Loans

"I built that!" he said.

And he did, to a point.

But he also got an $850,000 Small Business Administration loan guarantee to build an 11,700-square-foot building for his company.

And he got help from the US Forest Service, to which he supplies signs, and a Department of Energy laboratory to develop environmentally friendly sign materials.

But the Government only impeded him! Down with Government!

Sigh.
