THE HILL: ‘You didn’t build that’ remarks won’t change Obama’s strategy. Good.
Meanwhile, Reader Curtis McGirt writes:
I think it’s time to resurrect the Heinlein quote just for a little perspective here:
Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.
This is known as “bad luck.”
Yes, it was clear from the beginning that the Obama Administration would be full of this kind of bad luck, and they have not failed to deliver.
