"You Olympians, however, know you didn't get here solely on your own power,” said Romney, who on Friday will attend the Opening Ceremonies of this year’s Summer Olympics. “For most of you, loving parents, sisters or brothers, encouraged your hopes, coaches guided, communities built venues in order to organize competitions. All Olympians stand on the shoulders of those who lifted them. We’ve already cheered the Olympians, let’s also cheer the parents, coaches, and communities. All right! [pumps fist].”
So either (a) Romney is an un-American collectivist who thinks the government should confiscate Michael Phelps' gold medals because community tax dollars funded the swimming pools that allowed him to compete, or (b) Romney's is thoroughly full of crap for attacking President Obama for saying that people who start businesses got help along the way.

Given that Romney himself now admits that he agrees with President Obama, I'll go with b.
