Tulsa, Oklahoma -

A sign in Broken Arrow is raising some eyebrows.

The sign is hanging next to Additive Systems, Inc. on Main Street in the Tulsa suburb.

It says "'We' built this business without gov't. help. Obama can kiss our a**."

It goes on to say, "I'm Bob Roggendorff and I approve this message."

The sign is one of several reactions to a comment the president made in a speech last month. The quote "If you've got a business, that, you didn't build that, somebody else made that happen" has ignited a furor in small business owners across the country.

An identical sign was posted earlier this month outside a lumber mill in Georgia.

A spokesperson for Roggendorff's company declined an interview, but released a statement Thursday saying:

"We at Additive Systems Inc. are passionate about doing our part to see the United States move in the right direction. We realize our sign has an edge to it, but we've received overwhelming support for our statement and we think a healthy debate is good for our country. We encourage everyone to make an informed decision when they head to the polls this November."
