A really good political cartoon sums up the absurdity of a situation without much verbiage.

This cartoon by A.F. Branco (original here, reprinted with permission) captures perfectly how out of touch Obama is when discussing the role of government in helping individuals succeed.

Sure, taxes (including from business owners) go towards building a common infrastructure, but government also imposes substantial barriers to success.

Contrary to Obama’s narrative, you do have to be smarter and/or work harder to succeed in order to overcome the regulatory and tax burden government places on success.  Most people understand this, just not the President.
