These Hands: Texas

Mitt Romney‚??s presidential campaign released the latest video in its ‚??These Hands‚?Ě series, in which small business owners respond to President Obama‚??s infamous ‚??you didn‚??t build that‚?Ě speech.¬† The new installment features Gilbert Cantu of Texas, who owns a company called Quality Security Products.¬† Cantu, a Hispanic businessman, described the President‚??s remarks as ‚??very insulting.‚?Ě

Accompanying the release of this video is a statement from Texas Senate candidate Ted Cruz: ‚??From El Paso to Texarkana, entrepreneurs and small-business owners across Texas know that they built their success with their own two hands.¬† They also know the damage that bad policy from Washington can do to the economy. ¬†From new regulations to higher taxes to Obamacare, the President has placed one obstacle after another in front of Texas job creators. ¬†Mitt Romney knows how to turn this economy around, and his plan for a stronger middle class is exactly what we need. ¬†Texans -like all Americans – can‚??t afford four more years of Barack Obama.‚?Ě
