Lawrence,

“If you’re confident about your strength, you don’t need to show me by putting somebody else down,” Obama said. “Show me by lifting somebody else up.”

If this is not lifted out of a context that would modify its meaning, I agree completely. One does not make one's self stronger by weakening or otherwise harming others.

Norm.
