It was a great paragraph till the last sentence:
If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business -- you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.I am not big on the art of oratory, but the word "government" in that sentence is really a spoiler. Should have kept it for the next paragraph, at least.
Er... what else? Well, just a notion: in Brezhnev's times a slip like that would have cost the speech writer his/her job. At least.
