What Barack Obama really meant to say was that it is undeniable that a partnership exists between government and private enterprise.
A business can't operate without a stable trading currency, roads, power grid, etc., that an efficient government provides. The argument is the same in this partnership as it is in any what is the split between the partners?
Contrary to opinion, especially from those on the left, Obama ain't that great a speaker unless he has a script. He winged it the other day and what occurred is that what he really believes came tumbling out.
He really, truly doesn't recognize the hard work, brains, and sacrifice required of a businessman to succeed. Obama thinks our system is unfair. He really believes in the concept of equal outcome as opposed to equal opportunity.
Having someone so untrained in business, so antithetical to the concept of entrepreneurship, despite lip service otherwise, is very unwise and possibly dangerous to a capitalist nation.
He, and the people he has surrounded himself with truly believe you can tax and regulate an economy into prosperity.
You cannot! They as a group and he as an individual need to be fired in November.
