You Didn't Wreck That

What President Obama should have said:

If you were unsuccessful, somebody along the line slowed you down. There was a godawful government official somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American red tape that we have that impeded your ability to thrive. Somebody invented permitting and inspections. If you’ve lost a business, you didn’t wreck that. Somebody else made that happen. The bureaucracy didn’t get invented on its own. Government created the bureacracy so that all the petty functionaries could take money out of your pocket.

Face it, our federal government is just too big and sticks its nose in too many things.

Heck, local governments, too, feel free to interfere based not on rule of law but on whim. Who knew that dissent was no longer patriotic?

Hey, it takes a village to wreck a business.
