Betcha President Obama wishes he could reel it back. You know — his clueless, incredibly revealing take on business success in America:
“If you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own,” he told supporters in Roanoke, Va., adding: “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that — somebody else made that happen.”
By “somebody else,” it was clear, he was talking about government — which Obama sees as the principal creator of wealth.
And that is so wrong.
The Soviet Union never lacked for government — and its citizens were as poor as the proverbial church mouse. Indeed, if government can create wealth, explain Zimbabwe.
