Noted right-wing columnist Mona Charen agrees with Obama: "Of course, the president is correct." I never thought I'd see the day. A RHINO no doubt!

"...PARTIALLY correct IN A BANAL SORT OF WAY." (Please consider the caps like italics for emphasis, not shouting.)

She's giving credit where credit is due, saying that it would be much more difficult, perhaps prohibitively, to build enterprises without the benefit of these public resources. Obama's words are, though, not to that effect, but instead giving them the credit, not the entrepreneur, for bringing the enterprise to fruition, not only stupid, but profoundly insulting. But, of course, the private sector is doing fine, isn't it? It must be; he said so.

A Rhino is short for rhinocerus. RINO means "Republican in Name Only." She could not be a RINO because she holds no office. I consider her a conservative.

Hey ignoramus, you've taken her quote out of context!!!!

President Obama's "you didn't build it" gaffe just defined the 2012 campaign. It succinctly encapsulates the president's prejudices about the public versus the private sector. Though the president has frequently mouthed platitudes in praise of enterprise, his suspicion and contempt for business has always percolated just beneath the surface.

Of course, the president is partially correct, in a banal sort of way. Yes, roads, bridges, firefighters and teachers are essential prerequisites to establishing an environment in which business can operate. So are peace and freedom -- for which we must thank the military.

But the president doesn't understand...
