What Obama should have said

When President Obama spoke recently he said, and I'll paraphrase, "If you are successful, you didn't do it by yourself. There was infrastructure in place that helped you."

The next sentence should have been: "So if you are not successful, there is no one to blame but yourself, because society gave you all the help you needed."
