Obama: You Can’t Build That! And If You Succeed It’s Because You’re Lucky

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.



Originally published on LonelyConservative.com

According to President Obama nothing gets built without the government, and anyone who has enjoyed any success in life only did so because they got lucky. How inspiring.

MRCTV has the scoop:

Pres. Obama doubled down on his infamous “You didn’t build that” claim when he declared “You can’t build” that and then told college graduates they gained their degrees by being “lucky.”

In remarks about the economy on Friday, Obama chastised those who think they’re self-sufficient and don’t need government:

“You can’t build your own metro system.  You can’t build your own highway.  You can’t build your own airport.  And so we have a specific problem with under-investing in infrastructure.”

Then, on Saturday, Pres. Obama told Howard University graduates that his “pet peeve” is people like them who don’t credit luck for their success:

“And that means we have to not only question the world as it is, and stand up for those African Americans who haven’t been so lucky — because, yes, you’ve worked hard, but you’ve also been lucky. That’s a pet peeve of mine: People who have been successful and don’t realize they’ve been lucky.”

The remarks are redolent of comments Obama made to business owners when he told them that, if they have a successful business, “You didn’t build that.”

Read the whole thing.

I’ll bet the college students leaving school with $100K or more in student loan debt aren’t feeling so lucky, especially if they’ve found out what the job market is like these days. And wait until they find out how many obstacles government throws in the way of people who want to build things.
