Obama Warned Us – Role of Government

Posted on February 13, 2014 2:00 pm

The role of government has never been to plan every detail or dictate every outcome. At its best, government has simply knocked away barriers to opportunity and laid the foundation for a better future. Our people — with all their drive and ingenuity — always end up building the rest. And if we can do that again — if we can continue building that foundation and making those hard decisions on behalf of the next generation — I have no doubt that we will leave our children the America that we all hope for.

BARACK OBAMA, speech at Carnegie Mellon University, Jun. 2, 2010

“One where government finally CAN plan every detail and dictate every outcome.”

    Carnegie Mellon is Frank’s alma mater, right? That’s gotta sour Frank’s stomach to think President Smidgen spoke there.

    Translation:

    The role of government has never been to plan every detail or dictate every outcome, until now. Plus, building new barriers creates jobs.
