Obama: “If you’ve got a business-you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.” [Darleen Click]
Another telling nugget from Barry that marks him as a full-fledged member of the coveting Left
There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me — because they want to give something back. They know they didn’t — look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something — there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there. (Applause.)
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.
Recall Cherokee Princess Elizabeth Warren attempted this dismissal of individual success earlier this year …
Warren rebuts the GOP-touted notion that raising taxes on the wealthy amounts to “class warfare,” contending that “there is nobody in this country who got rich on his own. Nobody.”
Scrape away all the “Progressive” huffing and puffing based on a premise no one has posited — “the concept that it is possible for Americans to become wealthy in isolation.” — and what you are really looking at is the “mama’s boy” relationship as venerated paradigm.
Government is Big Mama, who aggressively controls her offspring and consistently reminds him “I gave birth to you, you wouldn’t be here without me, YOU OWE EVERYTHING TO ME.”
The emotion-based Left is also psychologically twisted. The Left as Toxic Parent.
