Talk about a Socialist/Marxist mentality. Barack Obama believes that there are no self-made men and women. He must be projecting from his own Equal Opportunity supported lifestyle.
Obama goes on to press the socialist vision:
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.
Well, Barack, since the roads, bridges and internet exist for everybody, then why do only a few succeed? I worked my way through college and paid my own way. I finished my undergraduate degree in three years and graduated Phi Beta Kappa. No one else did that. No one studied for me. No one else woke me up and forced me to go to my job as a Respiratory Therapy Tech at Boone County Hospital. I made sacrifices to succeed. And no, no parent or relative helped.
When I started my business as a consultant I did not seek out U.S. Government contracts nor did I ask for a Government loan or handout. I had to do the work and I had to deliver a quality product or else I would not get hired again.
Clearly, in Barack Obama’s delusional world, what you do does not matter. How you perform does not matter. That’s why he refuses to disclose his college records. He was a mediocre student who got ahead by playing the race card. He got minority preferences and discovered the joys of government handouts.
What a despicable human being. He is a total disgrace as a President of this country and must defeated come November.
