“Channeling Elizabeth Warren,” in the words of Jazz Shaw at Hot Air, Barack Obama said that successful Americans “didn’t get there” on their own.

they didn’t — look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own.
I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was

because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something —
there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there. [Emphasis added]
