I agree with everything you said until this last line. It was just a regular campaign stop, you know, just people from the area, old and young, all that stuff.
Obama is clearly making the supporting argument for how taxes and the gov't are essential to everyone, not just individuals, but small business owners also. The American entrepreneurs who are smart, innovative, and business savvy didn't get that way by watching Hogan's Heroes for 12 years. It came from a good education in (presumably) public schools.
