You miss the point because of your extreme bias against Obama.

If you actually listen to what he is saying it makes sense. What he is saying is that the business owner is not solely responsible for the success of their business. It took a lot of other peoples hard work to make it so. From those who built the roads that lead to the business, to those who actually work at the business, to those who protect the streets so people are safe to enter the business, to those who provide the power to run the business, to those who deliver the goods that the business sells, to those who pick up the trash generated by the business. The owner is obviously the one who put the plan for their business together, who works long hours to make sure the business plan is moving in the right direction, etc, but they are not the only ones making it a success. Could he have done a better job of bringing that part out? Yes, definitely, but you and some others seem blind to the fact that it takes more than one person to make a business successful. Personally, those who helped write the speech dropped the ball on this one.
I've seen it in big business and small business where the owner thinks they are the only one who knows what is going on and the only one who is responsible for the success of the business. Plenty of incompetent owners with money who have the right people around them to make it work and yet fail to acknowledge it or reward them fully for their effort.
