American Crossroads, the 527 organization co-founded by Karl Rove, released a new video titled “Build” today, hitting President Obama for telling Americans earlier this month, “If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”

Crossroads put the speech on an iPad and showed it to small business owners across the country. Some of the reactions in the video:

“Unbelievable.”
“What an insult.”
“I am outraged.”
“I can’t believe he just said that.”
“I can’t believe the president of the United States could say that I have not made this.”
“We risk everything every day…”
“It came from my personal savings…”

Crossroads did not indicate if the ad would be put on television.
