You know, imo, this statement betrays BO's basic problem in life: he's black/white but not quite, he's a cool guy who smokes dope but not quite, he's a lawyer or law expert but not quite, he's a senator who hardly ever attended meetings and/or voted, he's an author but not quite, he's a president but shows to be totally clueless at that too...
Quote from nutmeg:
You didn't build that pizza...
Back at AT&T I saw the type: coming into a job full of bravado, never quite completing anything, talking a lot, trying to get promoted or transferred to somewhere else before they actually have to deliver anything real... the corporate Ronin, pseudo-consultants of sorts, people without professional heart and soul. In this way, our man is falling through the cracks all over the place: he's neither this nor that... or both... or none.
Such a person should be expected to look at the backbone of this economy, the small business creator/owner and tell them: you may have it now but you didn't build that, someone else did... etc Again, his thinking is not complete, his understanding is not clear, he expects that somehow the issue (in this case, who built that business or who deserves the credit) will somehow disappear before it needs to be addressed, and by then our halfway there undecided in chief will have a different job, preferably somewhere else. We should be that lucky.
