President Obama, speaking in Virginia, said, "We don't believe anybody is entitled to success in this country."

 

"This country doesn't just succeed when just a few are doing well at the top. It succeeds when the middle class gets bigger. Our economy doesn't grow from the top down -- it grows from the middle out. We don't believe that anybody is entitled to success in this country," said Obama. "But we do believe in opportunity. We believe in a country where hard work pays off and responsibility is rewarded, and everybody is getting a fair shot and everybody is doing their fair share and everybody is playing by the same rules."

No one is entitled to success. It needs to be earned. Nobody deserves success just by existing. Just like his comment on businesses, taken out of context. A business becomes successful because of the customers, the loan officers, all the people who support that business. Success is a collaborative effort and no one deserves it just by existing. They deserve the right to try. Life, liberty, pursuit of happiness.

yup

Quoting grandmab125:

He is changing his wording to "fair shot" from "fair share", because he finally figured out that tactic was costing him support.  And as Gov. Romney so eloquently said in the debate, "Gov't trickle down economics doesn't work."  And for those of you who weren't paying attention, when the mod asked Obama what he thought of gov't trickle down economics, Obama mumbled something, asked the mod to change the topic, and went off on the Obamacare rant.

If you don't have the successful employers creating jobs, the middle class have no jobs.  The success of one can affect the success of the one under him.

Life isn't fair, suck it up.  It's about time someone told Obama that.   

HE even called Obamacare - Obamacare..........lol Not ACA or whatever the official name of the thing is...

A great moment in time lol

....I am only responsible for what I say,NOT for what you understand.....

Enquiring minds want to know.........

I must be missing something, just see him answering all the republicans saying that democrats feel entitled to hand out without work, what he is saying is, No we don't believe that we are entitled to anything, but everyone deserves the same chance?

And what he said about the middle class is so true, and has been true in every civilization in history I believe.

It really does chafe your ass when someone agrees with him doesn't it?  That has to hurt since your head usually resides there, huh?

I'm sure you're one of the millions who think they are "entitled" to the success of others, though.
