You didn’t build that, cont.

Here’s a great email I just received from a friend:

Obama’s views on this would be much more credible if he ascribed his own accomplishments to luck.  He didn’t merit admission to Harvard; that was given to him.  He didn’t merit being editor of the law review; that was given to him.  He didn’t merit election to the Senate, his party’s nomination, or his election as President.  Those were given to him.  He didn’t get there on smarts, effort or ability.

“ 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.”

But strangely, Obama seems to think he’s pretty smart.  He seems to think that it makes a difference whether his ideas are implemented or not.  If someone else would do just as well in the Oval Office, why doesn’t he go write another autobiography?

Let me tell him something.  If he signed a huge stimulus bill, he didn’t write that, Nancy Pelosi wrote that.  If he signed a huge financial reform bill, he didn’t write that, Barney Frank wrote that.  If he signed a huge healthcare bill, he didn’t write that, Max Baucus wrote that.

    Barack did not merit going to Harvard Law – Percey Sutton pulled strings (it is alleged that he did this because Donald Warden – “Khalid al-Masour” asked him to) to get him in.

    Also Barack did very little at Harvard (one published article on abortion and that is about it) so the Harvard Law review thing really was just a gift.

    Ditto every job Barack has ever had – given to him, with no need to actually WORK as lawyer (just a bit of work for the ACORN clients) or anything else. You try getting a job at the University of Chicago without a doctorate and with virutally no published work. And you try putting your feet up on the desk at the law office working on your autobiography (during office hours – before giving up and giving the job to Bill to finish for you), see what happens to you…….

    The U.S. Senate seat? Given to him by David Axelrod’s smear campaign (getting sealed divorce case court papers – an old trick of Axelrod’s) and John Kerry (keynote address as the 2004 Convention).

    The Stimulus Bill was written by the Apollo Alliance (Bill Ayers old Comrade in Arms, Jeff Jones and co).

    So YES when Barack says other people provide success – he is just thinking of his own life.

    A life without effort, without work, where everything is handed to a person – on a plate.
