Selectively left out of Nicholas' article, Obama concluded with:
"The point is, is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together."
The entire comment by Obama:
"Iím 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 ó there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there.

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 youíve got a business ó you didnít build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didnít 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."
This was not an elegant speech or comment by any stretch of the imagination. But it does take a big imagination to take these comments and see a
"war on small business"
. Faux News talking points, Jon, you should try to do better......

You and Beckley should become roadies for the Grateful Dead reunion tour. You both are unkempt perverts and would probably fit right in. Welcome back, Beckely. How is your Mom? Has she recovered from that rough night you showed her?
