The controversy over some rather stupid remarks by President Obama will continue throughout the campaign. Mr. Obama in trying to make the point that no one is successful without massive help from others, including government seemed to imply that those who had built successful businesses did not contribute to their own success.
The recent events in
what Mr. Obama should have said instead of what he did say. The city of New Orleans New Orleans was saved from destruction by U. S. government built and funded flood
protection systems, systems costing over $10 billion and probably a lot
more. There is no clearer example of
how and why successful government programs are needed in society.
Louisiana is dominated by Conservatives, and they
will never ever admit that the U. S.
government had anything to do with helping New Orleans survive yet another storm. In fact, look for them to blame the
government for the storm coming to Louisiana,
and look for them to claim the private sector was the source of all that flood
After all, that’s what it looks like in their fantasy world.
