If Obama is Bad for Business Why Are Foreign Investors Flocking To The United States?
By: Ray Medeiros
June 11, 2012

Hold up, wait a minute. This can not be true. President Obama is bad for business! Why would foreign investors be coming to the United States to invest.

According to CNN Money,

"The State Department expects to issue over 6,000 "investor visas" in the current fiscal year, which would be an all-time record. Other countries, meanwhile, are following the U.S.'s lead, keen to spur growth in lean economic times."

So as the other party is telling average Americans how terrible President Obama is doing, foreign investors see opportunity in America. They see America is on track for tremendous growth.

This actually goes in line with what I wrote for my website USAprogressive, "Does Obama deserve a second term?" In this article I pointed to 4 economic facts that have occurred under Obama's watch.

First, the Dow Jones has increased 85% from 2009-2012, the S&P; 500 has increased 98% since Obama took office, and corporate profits after taxes have increased 68% since President Obama took his oath. Now finally, Obama has turned this economy around from losing 750,000 jobs a month in the first quarter of 2009, to averaging growth of 150,000 jobs per month.

So either foreign investors are really stupid to invest in America, when they could be investing more in Brazil, Russia and China or they see amazing economic strength coming down the pipe for America! You decide!

    Very simple the other economies around the world are a worse bet. Unlike the european socialists they know that the US still has the opportunity to throw the vapid suit running the nation out and recover.

    (1) He has a nice voice (very important when all you do is talk);
    (2) He's likeable (unless you are in the crosshairs of one of his drone attacks);
    (3) He's black (and, as the post-racial President, only He can cure our racist nation of its racist ills);
    (4) He's the first Black American (what?);
    (5) He stopped the wars (and stemmed the rise of the oceans);
    (6) He put an end to Don't Ask Don't Tell (and has evolved from supporting gay marriage to campaigning for traditional marriage to embracing Gay Marriage, one of the most heinous civil rights violations in our time);
    (7) He...I don't know (that's probably the only accurate response yet);
    (8) He's awesome (when using his nice voice to sing Al Green songs and attend over 150 fundraisers...while Rome burns);
    (9) He'll tax the G-D rich and make those selfish people pay their fair share (until he runs out of other people's money. Hey, Michelle! How about another $2,000 sundress, $500 pair of gardening shoes or $400,000 vacation with 40 of your BFFs?);
    (10) He needs four more years to...put it all together (because he messed up so badly during the first four years--during his practice round as President).

    Foreigners dislike;

    (1) He has done more to divide this nation between races, religions, economic and educational status than any other human being in our history;
    (2) He has ushered in the longest, sustained period of unemployment-40 consecutive months at 8% and higher-since the Great Depression;
    (3) He has spent so much taxpayer money, even fetuses are burdened with a debt of approximately $45,000 before they come to term;
    (4) He wants everyone to have a college education and has vowed to provide more student loans and, at the same time, forgive their repayment because, under his administration, 1 out of 2 recent college grads have had to move back into previously empty nests with no prospect of working or, are flipping burgers;
    (5) He does not look cool when he runs down the steps of Air Force One and even if he did, it's no reason to elect anyone;
    (6) He's America's first Downgrade President. If anyone else allowed that to happen under their watch at their place of work, they'd have been summarily terminated;
    (7) We need a manager not a singer;
    (8) The content of his character is questionable; the color of his skin irrelevant;
    (9) He wakes up every morning working for the little guy but actually hurts the average Joe with high taxes, burdensome regulations, unsustainable entitlement programs, a $16 trillion dollar debt, and $813 billion stimulus programs that haven't created the private sector jobs we were promised; and lastly, as expressed by the young college grad in the video
    (10) "We are in danger."

    Ah Joe, you get dumber by the day. You're the ones dividing this nation. You're at war with anyone in the 99%, anyone with a vagina, anyone whose skin isn't white, anyone who actually works for a living, anyone who worships a different God (or no God) than you do, and most importantly, anyone with the intelligence to lead this nation. No wonder you hate President Obama. You caused the longest, sustained period of unemployment by blocking every bill that would help the American people. He has spent a small fraction of what George Bush spent to hand our national economy to the corporatists. He does want everyone to get a college education. And in your case, I'm sure he'd help you get out of elementary school in less than ten years. He does look cool running down the steps of AF1. The Tea Party caused our downgrade. Singing is just one of his many abilities. The stimulus created over 4 million jobs. The Average Joe's taxes are LOWER now than when he took office. And yes, we are in danger. That's why anyone who gives a sh*t about the future of this country will support the President against people like you who simply want to destroy everything this nation stands for.

    LOL at least you're consistent. If someone had invested at the start of the Bush Administration they'd have lost their shirt. If someone had invested at the start of the Obama Administration they'd see significant profits. If by some horrible miracle Romney is elected you will see money fleeing offshore like never before.

    If the President loses the election the resulting Great Depression will make Herbert Hoover look like a financial genius by comparison.
