"society 'allows' entreprenuers to be successful" 'allows'? That is mighty nice of you to allow me to work in my own business. "by giving them the support they need." what "support?" everyone needs roads and bridges! we pay the taxes needed to build the roads and maintain them. As for Obama's constant refrain about teachers being instrumental in people's successes...... American young people are dumber now then at any other point in American history. My former teachers, some good, others, not even worth recognizing had little impact on my becoming successful.

President Obama blasted American entrepreneurs last weekend, boldly claiming the self-made man is an illusion to an audience in Roanoke, Virginia. Since the Obama apologists in the mainstream media are claiming that the president is being quoted out of context, here is how he led into the subject:
