Obama is Stealing My Ideas

Okay, so maybe the title of this post is a bit of a stretch. But I couldn’t help but notice something familiar about the controversial comments Obama made in Virginia the other day. Conservatives and Republicans only want you to hear the part where he said “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that!”

But then again, that’s why Fox News never broadcasts any of his speeches. Because if average conservatives were allowed to hear Obama speak two sentences without having some old, loud, racist, angry white guy loudly extrapolate how those sentences prove he’s Hitler reincarnate, they would be Fox News viewers no more. But I digress. Here’s the video of Obama’s speech in Virginia.

I couldn’t help but notice the idea he expressed – that individual success in America is attainable thanks to collectivist action in the past – is quite similar to a concept I poked at a while back.

Regardless of what I think, I want to know what my readers think. Would Mitt Romney have been able to achieve his level of success in a state of anarchy? Because that’s what it comes down to. Mitt Romney finds Obama’s comments insulting. What do you think?
