Sometimes I find it hard to credit exactly how Marxist (stow that: Maoist, but more on that in a future post) this Administration is. From his remarks about business owners' success not being their own, Barack Obama comes back for Marxism II: Electric Boogaloo.
As reported by the Washington Examiner, Barack Obama was at it again on Monday. Now, it's not simply that the Government is partially responsible for your success. Now you own none of it. You see, you were just a bystander who fate chose for success, not a hard worker driven to succeed.
Mr. Obama's quote (my emphasis):
If you're lucky enough, and fortunate enough, and been blessed enough to be in the other two percent...
Yes, that's it, Mr. President. They were lucky. They simply tossed a coin in a well and wished real hard. Then, one day, they woke up and *poof* they had all this success.
But of course, the President doesn't believe that either. He knows you are the author of your own success. He knows that, however lucky and blessed you may be, that store didn't open itself, and the Government didn't open it, either. He knows that, whatever good fortune you've received, you didn't sit around on your hands waiting to be handed success on a silver platter. He just also doesn't care.
You, successful business men and women, are not his audience. His audience is the looters and leeches. His audience is those who would vote themselves benefits from the public treasury.
