    Gee, a rightwinger hates Obama. What are the odds of that? 3 to 1?

    Is there a sign on her that I missed saying she is a rightwinger? Seems a lot of small businesses that employ people then are rightwingers. Noticed that the content went right over your head.

    She said so. Don't you ever pay attention?

    She said she was a right winger? Seems like you stopped paying attention in Nov. 2010 when the country turned back to fiscal responsibility in an overwhelming rebuke of Obama policies. Record state legislatures and House wins that must have gone right over your head. The fact that you are part of the 40% that still supports this incompetent President says a lot.

    Went back and listened and watched again, didn't hear her claim to be a rightwinger but she sure made a lot of sense. She said "I inherit a mess each day I was hired to clean up that mess" Take note, Sheik, something apparently foreign to a liberal who can only blame others for their own failure. Obama lacks leadership skills which is evident by the results generated. Everything is "We inherited" and never it is my problem and I didn't fix it.

    Have you ever considered the possibility that massive wealth accumulation is in fact not "achievement" but a pathology?

    The problem I have with comments like this makes the assumption that the pie is always the same size and never grows. That simply is false. The pie continues to grow and people need to stop complaining when apparently they don't have the initiative or drive to capture their piece of that growing pie.

    It can be. For a few.

    It has nothing to do with the size of the pie except to say that there is some point when you have enough pie. If you eat too much, you could get sick. As a matter of fact, some people have so much pie they can't possibly expect to eat it all and are just competing with other pie collectors.

    It's also the case that one can have plenty of initiative and drive to do things other than "capture" pie.

    here is some point when you have enough pie
    and who has the moral authority to make that decision?

    No, the pie is the economy which keeps growing and that is what generates wealth opportunities for individuals. You have to accept the reality that some people just don't have any initiative, drive, or dedication to go after a piece of it whereas others do. Too many want to demonize those that create individual wealth and have sympathy for those that don't.
