    Obama is void of management skills and has proven so beyond a reasonable doubt.

    Small buisness owners also think so and they are the ones that create jobs.

    "What do concerns about regulations and policies mean for small businesses? Stalled growth. 80% of small businesses surveyed report the taxation, regulation, and legislation from Washington make it harder for their business to hire more employees. Nearly three-out-of-four (73%) of small businesses surveyed cite the recent health care law as an obstacle to growing their business and hiring more employees.”

    Do small businesses support Obama's policies?

    "Sixteen percent of small businesses approve of the job President Obama is doing."

    The survey is only of businesses that hire people. There are about 7 million buisneses in America that have 1 or more employees.

    That is the reason all of these business group are fighting Liberals and especially Obama. I undestand they are spending more money then the Republican party to defeat Obama.

    Interesting that some business have money fatten up the GOP coffers but, cry "broke" when called out for not hiring Americans.

    The GOP's hustle is actually admirable. They know they will lose in November so, they will use racial resentment to raise fund.

    Businesses are not going to hire with a Marxist Liberal sitting in the White House. It is too risky.

    The money has been overseas since late 2008. It won't come back until Obama is dumped in the street. To risky!

    "Businesses are not going to hire withy a [half-Black Democrat with a Semitic name] sitting in the White House."

    Too political correct & inclusive, I guess.

    "The money has been overseas since [before the Bush Tax Cuts were implemented]."

    " It won't come back until [either Obama leaves office in 2017 or until Obama, along with a truly Patriotic Congress, pass & sign bills into law that create Americans jobs]."

    Harry Alford, president and CEO of the National Black Chamber of Commerce, went off on President Obama’s anti-business philosophy on Friday in an interview with Laura Ingraham.

    Alford called the administration “Marxist” and “fanatical” and said, “They might as well put on the brown shirts and swastikas.”

    http://www.ihatethemedia.com/...

    Do you think Harry Alford would be the CEO if his members didn't agree with him? The vast majority of small business owners in the US agree with Harry Alford. That is why Obama can create jobs and why every business organization in American is fighting Obama.

    So, Harry Alford (like Alan Keyes, Hermann Cain, Michael Steele & Allen West) are near-complete idiots.

    Laura Ingraham has shown me over the last five years that she has nothing of substance & merit to offer any academic discourse on anything.

    http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-5...

    People who use "Marxist" to describe any part of America can't be taken seriously.

    What does Laura Ingraham have to do with it? Harry Alford who represents black business owners said that Obama was a Marxist. The majority of black small business owners agree with him or he would be the CEO of the US Black Chamber of Commerce.

    Every business organization in America agrees with him which is why they have a huge Super Pac to provide funds to fight Obama anti job policies and Marxist Liberals in Congress.

    I'm a business owner who just happens to be Black.

    This idiot Alford doesn't represent me at all & I'm starting to be offended by your implication that "all Black people in business should think exactly alike".

    So, if Harry Alford wants to cozy up to Paul Ryan and hate on my President, that's his right. That idiot doesn't represent me.

    "Every business organization in America agrees..."

    Nope.

    You are in the minority of black business owners that don't support Harry. If you were in the majority then Harry Alford won't be the CEO of the Black Chamber of Commerce.

    Of course, you cut and run on my question’ “what does Laura Ingraham have to do with it?”

    You had a breakdown in logic. Marxist Liberals always cut and run when they get slammed with facts.

    Harry made the statement that Obama was a Marxist not Laura Ingraham.

    Your side is funny.

    You say "Government can't/shouldn't create jobs!".

    Then, you say "Where are the jobs, Obama?"

    Then, when jobs ARE created in the private & public sector, you say "Lib Spin! Propaganda!".

    Then Boehner & McConnel take an elephant dump on any jobs put forth that would actually help this country.

    If Obama such a "failure", why are there at least 33 Billionaires trying to help a weak corporate Koch-puppet like Romney win...?

    I would love for Harry Alford to sit down with Rachel Maddow for a 20-min. interview.

    Anyone who thinks Marxism exist in Americal is an idiot and/or a deceiver.

    Quote me were I said; "Government can't/shouldn't create jobs!" You can't that is crap!

    The Obama Record: May's weak jobs report further confirms the president's policies are failing to help the economy. This is, indeed, the worst recovery since the Depression.

    • The share of Americans who've been out of work a long time — now at 42% of the unemployed — is the highest since the Great Depression (source: Labor Department).

    • The proportion of the civilian working-age population actually working, at 58%, is the smallest since the Carter era (Labor Department).

    • Growth in nonfarm payroll jobs since the recovery began in June 2009 is the slowest of any comparable recovery since World War II (Hoover Institution).

    • The rate of new business startups — the engine of job growth — has plunged to an all-time low of 7.87% of all businesses (Census Bureau).

    • 54% of bachelor's degree-holders under the age of 25 are jobless or underemployed, the highest share in decades (Northeastern University).

    • Black teen unemployment, now at 37%, is near Depression-era highs (Labor Department).

    Interesting how you infer that the economy was perfect until President Obama was inaugurated & that his predecessor contributed nothing to these numbers you posted.

    I'm wondering if you believe that Romney, McConnell & Boehner are the perfect guys to cure all comic woes.

    The stats you posted feels like McConnell's plan to sabotage the economy is working. I guess we'll see if the GOP's sedition proves fruitful for them.

    2. Reaganomics & "trickle-down" are the models that all comic policy should build on?

    3. The economy was thriving perfect until January 20th, 2009?



    If that's where you going, how could you expect to be taken seriously by any sane, academic?

    1. When Pelosi and Reid took control of Congress in Jan 2007, the unemployment rate was 4.6 percent and it had been under 5 percent since July 2005. Marxism doesn't work.

    2. Reagan created 16 million jobs and increased Federal revenues by 76 percent. Conversely, Obama brought in only 2.3 Trillions of Revenue in 2011 while Bush brought in 2.5 trillion dollars of revenues in 2008. Marxism doesn't work

    3. The economy was thriving perfectly until Pelosi and Reid took over Congress in Jan 2007. The unemployment rate was 4.6 percent. Marxism doesn't work which is why Obama can't create job. Every business group in American is fighting Obama.

    1. Bush B.S. spin for his Tax Cuts was to discourage outsourcing jobs to other countries. Ten years later, we're still waiting on this. Marxism in America doesn't exist.

    2. Reagan raised taxes 8 times, mostly on the Middle Class. The revenues existed at the expense & destruction of the Middle Class. This is "Trickle-Up" economics. Marxism in America doesn't exist.

    3. "The economy was thriving perfectly until Pelosi and Reid took over Congress in Jan 2007." No, it was in a tailspin. Tax Cuts for Corporations, two wars purposely left off of the Budget, Wall Street deregulation & the Housing Bubble bursting. Marxism in America doesn't exist.

    Wow, all of those studies on FOXNews viewers seem to be pretty accurate.

    Here is the disingenuous lie you've posted:

    "Every business group in America is fighting that Marxist Liberal in the White House including the black Chamber of Commerce."

    Obamacare (ACA) is Romneycare on a national level. The same guys wrote both bills. Since the GOP watered down the bill even further, Obamacare is a big gift to Big Pharma & Big Insurance. Hardly "Marxist".

    The Supreme Court is weighing out how much money will actually be lost if they go all "Tea Party" on Romneyc.... er, I mean... Obamacare.

    Interesting that Thomas' wife is huge Tea Bag (no conflict of interest, there. Right?)

    I do thoroughly enjoy your Luntz talking-points and other Koch propaganda. However, I'd really be impressed if you put down the Beck Kool-Aid, turn off FOXNews, think for yourself & present some facts.

    Here's a fact:

    Any reasonable person would have to go with Romney when it comes to management abilities and business acumen, but I should probably qualify that statement a bit by saying that is not all I think we need out of a presidential candidate.

    If all I was looking for was sound business skills and competent managerial abilities then why not find some CEO on the Forbes top 10 who has brought his company back from the brink of disaster and has an MBA from some prestigious Ivy League university?

    Being a capable statesmen requires a great many abilities, some of which are fairly tangible, others are more innate.

    The primary problem Obama has in creating jobs is that capital and jobs flee Marxism. Romney clearly understands investors. He will delete Obama’s big government regulations. He will eliminate the uncertainty in what government will do next.

    Romney is going to have a massive stimulus package using investor’s private money not tax dollars. There are trillions sitting on the side line with corporations, investors, and small businesses.

    "A vast majority (97%) of small businesses surveyed cite a candidate’s support for the free enterprise system as important, 84% cite as very important.

    Almost as many small businesses, (92%) think the business community should lead the American Recovery, compared to 8% who think the federal government has the best solutions.

    The vast majority of small businesses still are looking for the government to get out of the way (81%) and for more certainty opposed to government assistance."

    Bloomberg makes a comment like that yet adds he would not vote GOP because of the social issues like, gun control. He has his own rich guy agenda, and knows Romney would protect that top percentile of rich guys. There is certainly nothing to base an opinion that Romney would do a better job. Bloomberg has designs on running for office in Washington, I think that is apparent. He overestimates his favorability rating, because it has dropped significantly in NYC.

    That's just it...the President of the United States is a far more encompassing job than being beholden to a group of shareholders. When you plan for the future of the nation, vision requires that you look beyond short term profits. You have to invest in the American people to insure the future of our country. Romney would have let GM fail. Obama did not. It was not only a good investment decision but it saved jobs and the community affected by the company success.

    Are you saying that the success of American industry (GM) does not benefit all of America? Not all of GM employees reside in Detroit. Certainly the shareholders, where ever they may reside, are all happy. Why are you so certain that GM would have come out of it okay? Do you think mass layoffs would have been conducive to our bottom line? GM is the number one car maker today. If they are shaky, the auto industry is in trouble.
  • baboula wamcalif 2012/06/21 13:18:01

    that's exactly what I am saying. GM would have come back because it is strong at it's core but just got overwhelmed. The mass layoffs would have become mass rehiresbecause no company especially one starting over is going to pass up on trained, experienced employees.
