Recently, President Obama has drawn more than his usual number of facepalms by uttering these words: " 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 youve got a business, you didnt build that. Somebody else made that happen, he said. The Internet didnt get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.
Let us digress very briefly: It is true that we live in an interdependent system. Someone may have had a great teacher, true. And someone may have benefited from great infrastructure, true. Yet, one person creates a business, and the next falls into welfare dependency. That difference can only be explained with hard work, character, bravery, and intelligent choices.
That said, perhaps we are being too hard on President Obama. Perhaps he actually believes the words he uttered. After all, is this not his experience?
1) Did he not recieve a Nobel Prize with absolutely no action, including a proposal or an outline of his intent, from the Nobel Peace Prize committee? This is a GENUINE case of "Someone else did that", and Obama experienced it firsthand.
2) Before the killing of Osama Bin Laden, wasn't President Obama out on the golf course, somewhat oblivious to the events of that day? Didn't other men sacrifice life and limb to accomplish this act? However, didn't he immediately bask in the glow from a willing, sychophantic media, implying that he was solely responsible for this event? This is a ANOTHER GENUINE case of "Someone else did that", and Obama experienced it firsthand.
3) We still do not know how President Obama got accepted into Occidental, then Columbia University, and then Harvard University. We do not know what his grades were that permitted these college acceptances. How did Obama become the editor of the Harvard Law Review, when extensive digging uncovered only one article submited to the publication? Certainly all these events were genuine cases of "someone else did that", and he profited from that intervention.
So, it's clear to even a casual observer: Barack Obama has had many things happen FOR him, actions that were actually performed by other people, and he ended up getting the benefit. It only follows that he would assume that this is how the rest of the world operates. Therefore, when he sees a Steve Jobs or a Bill Gates, he remarks that these people did not create their business, someone else did it for them.
It's the only reality he can understand, because it is the only reality he has experienced firsthand.
Well said, Laz!
That is some great stuff, Laz.
Rush was just talking about this, and he said “America, Obama’s just not THAT into you.”
Yeah. To say the least. He is into destroying America though.
Well, I better not get THAT excited. After all, I didn't create this. Someone else did it. < /Barack Obama>
A short, succinct writing. Thanks....
I write an editorial, then I ruthlessly edit. Then I edit again. Then I combine a few sentences. Then I eliminate one of every three sentences. Then I edit.
Pings to my other newsy friends.
Opps, no. Rush was talking about the absurd remarks that Hussein made. The same remarks discussed in this article.
Well that's okay, Rush didn't create his radio show. Somebody else made it happen.
This is also not true: The Internet didnt get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.
How can becoming a 'known associate' of our website's most beloved skank have a bigger downside?
Unless there's a new viral infection spread by consenting adults, RAOTFLMAO it's Okay, I'm already a carrier!
You disgusting skirt chasing coon dog and serial adulterer, is there no decently sanitary woman out there for us?
T4TP! This is a good one!
I take it you’re asking?
You know, I didn’t reply. Someone else made that happen. There’s infrastructure, and electricity, and all sorts of stuff. Roads, and generators, and internet. I didn’t do this. Someone else did.
The government has no money to build a road or a bridge or anything else UNLESS it TAXES the people who made stuff, started a business, toiled in the sun, etc..
SO, the very beginning was God made people, not governments.
I guess Hussein is confused since I’ve not heard him say Allah made people. Maybe he thinks Allah made a governemnt for the people the real God made.
Hussein is a puddle of nothing - now, what does “nothing” look like? I think I’ll have a drink.
That’s gonna leave a mark.
It’s a brilliant take and good distillation of what a lot of us have been thinking since the credit-taker-in-chief inserted his foot so deeply down his own throat.
