I guess, according to Barack Obama’s reasoning, the panhandler I see on my streets got there because of our road systems and an inferior teacher.

I think the difference between the panhandler and the successful entrepreneur is that one took advantage of the American dream and with his own investment of money and sweat built something for himself, not the government which usually gets in the way more than anything.
