Here's what I don't understand about Obama's 'you didn't build it' fetish: The roads and bridges and all the other infrastructure that Obama uses in his argument is available to ALL OF US. So, if Person A works his ass off building a business and thereby benefits himself and the American economy in general, and Person B chooses to take life easier and do less, the success of Person A is HIS OWN doing and Person B's more leisurely and less entreprenurial life style is HIS OWN doing and it is profoundly irrational (not to mention disingenuous and deceptive) to detract from Person A's success simply because he put to good use the infrastructure that WE ALL have available to us. This form of attack is just class warfare in alternative garb and is the sort of rhetoric we've never heard before from a President. Even Carter didn't sink this low.
