Obama's missing one stage of the "Understanding" of how business works. Having started more than one businesses with just a desk and a telephone, I feel quakified to comment here. Technically Obama is right; we had streets to drive on, police protection and bridges to cross rivers with. NONE OF THAT WAS FROM THE GOVERNMENT! Those helpful tools were there because many other people had busted their humps, risked all, made a little profit and paid enough taxes to provide them for the rest of us! They were not a gift from King George, FDR or the Rainbow Coalition. Successful businesses paid for it all!
