Saturday, Obama explained that the American dream is flawed.  Hard work and dedication don't lend themselves to success, only reliance on the government does.
...if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own.  You didn’t get there on your own.  I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart.  There are a lot of smart people out there.  It must be because I worked harder than everybody else.  Let me tell you something -- there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there.  (Applause.)
     If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help.  There was a great teacher somewhere in your life.  Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive.  Somebody invested in roads and bridges.  If you’ve got a business -- you didn’t build that.  Somebody else made that happen.  The Internet didn’t get invented on its own.  Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet...
Oh, okay.  Then what about all those things you have taken credit for, Blowie?  Care to spread the love and admit that nothing you have accomplished was because you are smart or worked hard?

I guess Blowie has to play the groupthink card to explain away all of the things he promised but didn't accomplish.  He needs another four years, 'cause he tries real hard...

Granny Jan and Jihad Kitty supplied the video.  Excellent work on this and other subjects at their site.
