What he said was this: "We don’t believe that anybody is entitled to success in this country," said Obama. "But we do believe in opportunity. We believe in a country where hard work pays off and responsibility is rewarded, and everybody is getting a fair shot and everybody is doing their fair share and everybody is playing by the same rules."
I've heard a lot of "I believe this, but" or "We don't believe this, but" come out of his mouth lately.... Equal opportunity? Sure - but NOT a guarantee of equality of outcome.
