"You didn't build it...and we rewarded you"

You all must remember when President Obama said, and I quote: "If you've got a business—you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen." While the Left backpeddled and obfuscated, those were his words. "Someone else made that happen", "that" meaning "a business". Clear enough. But in today's puff piece (September 2, 2012, cover and page 6) in the Parade sixteen-page throwaway in your local newspaper (here in Seattle, the Seattle Times) President Obama said that he rejects "...the idea that if we just reward those at the top..." So the president not only believes that you didn't build your company OR earn the financial success in doing so because "we" -- meaning maybe society or the government, or perhaps Barry and Michelle -- "rewarded" you. Then he said that achievement and success of the few -- Oh, say, George Washington, J. P. Morgan, the Rockefellers, Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, General Motors, R. H. Macy, the Nordstroms, Howard Schultz -- "HASN'T BEEN HOW AMERICA GOT BUILT".

Then I ask you, Mr. President, just how did America get built?
