I think that sometimes too much has been made of the President’s “You didn’t build that” comment. I read one suggestion that the best drinking game for the Republican Convention would have been to take a drink every time the President’s comment was mentioned or alluded to. But his comment does serve to illustrate a different way of thinking where individuals and capitalism are downplayed, and the community and the State are paramount. Here’s a funny video from YouTube that shows the free market/capitalist problem with the “You didn’t build that” philosophy.
