    Obama talks like he is for small business and the middle class, but he is actually trying to get rid of both of them. He is out to destroy this country not build it up.

    The answer is he has never run a business, and he believes that success of ANY business is only due to the government.

    This is because he has NEVER worked or run anything that wasn't subsidized by government intervention...in other words...he really just doesn't know any better.

    facsism

    There was NO RISK working for ACORN...only reward on the backs of the taxpayers who funded the grants and kickbacks that paid his salary.

    He is merely a product of his own environment of entitlements and government handouts and truly believes that THAT is the key to success.

    Pres. Obama is an academic and a community organizer (rabble-rouser) who was raised internationally by a communist leaning mother, step father and grandmother. All of his mentors and sponsors were far left of mainstream American thinking.



    It is no fault of his that his dreams for America are not the same as most Americans would want. He's not evil. He's not a bad man, perhaps a smooth-talking con man. But mostly, HE'S THE WRONG MAN.!



    We made a mistake by electing him in 2008. He messed things up when a strong recovery should have been part of the typical 2010 2011 business cycle.



    We need to send him back to Chicago, or Honolulu, or Indonesia, or maybe even Kenya where he might be able to be elected as their president.

    I don't think he despises business but I do think he believes they are there to tax for his programs that are designed to keep him in power. He definitely believes they are a convenient target and foil to perpetuate his class warfare- again, designed to keep him in power.
    And, as part of his class warfare tactics and strategy, he does envy the success anyone might enjoy from the fruit of their labors primarily because he knows he had everything handed to him through affirmative action and other freebie programs- from his acceptance and payment for his Ivy League education to the democrat party's nomination (Hilary would have crushed him if he were white).
    He is a fraud, a complete phony, and a very dangerous person to have the power he currently enjoys.

    This is another attempt to demoralize the American people and, once again, level the playing field so we're no longer the dream, the miracle, the grand experiment. We're going downhill fast. Denigrating small business owners and proposing to tax them heavily, will lead to fewer jobs, fewer small businesses and corporate and conglomerate takeover. Is this what we want? NO!

    Obama Seeks to Extend, Expand Small-Business Tax Breaks


    President Barack Obama sent Congress a package of small business measures today that he said would expand tax relief and unlock capital to boost the economy and create jobs.

    The plan would expand and make permanent a zero capital gains rate on small business investments; enact a new, 10 percent tax credit for hiring or increasing wages; double to $10,000 from $5,000 the deductions a startup business could take and extend 100 percent first-year depreciation, for one year, for qualified property placed in service before Jan. 1, 2013.

    Obama said he wants “to spur entrepreneurship, to help startups.” At the start of a Cabinet meeting at the White House, he called on Congress to quickly act on legislation and said he would “sign it right away.”

    Obama has never so much as run or worked at a snow cone stand much less anything that has to consist of ACTUAL manual labor.... He knows NOTHING about getting out and busting your butt to work or make a living. He is so unqualified that its shameful ! It looks like the Democrats and Liberals would be ashamed of what this country has fallen in since Jan 2009 but I don't believe they know the difference. CONTROL is the only thing they understand.

    Just more BS from the Obama hating conservative right. What facts are you using to support your statement? It seems as though a group called Small Business Majority disagrees with your statement. Hell, regulations the Obama administration has leveled on corporations and big businesses has made it possible for small business to even start up in what would normally be a monopoly. Here is a link to the article.

    You are just a racist Obama worshipper who denies the fact that Obama has tripled the national debt further putting our economic crisis in jeopardy. Or maybe your just one of those who maxes out their credit cards and thinks that getting more credit cards and spending more money will solve your credit and debt issues. This just defies ALL logic. Here is a link that say the exact opposite of your claim, business owner support is dropping for Obama as his policies hurt them. http://www.gallup.com/poll/15...

    Tripled the national debt... I didn't think it was any where near 30 trillion yet but those may just be some more numbers you pulled out of you butt.

    All in all, it looks like your poll is just about 50% for and 50% against Obama, just about what you would expect with a little more than 50% of the country belonging to the Democratic party and a little less than 50% belonging to the Republican party.

    And what kind of business owner are we talking about in this poll? Funny that professional workes are high on him... Of course big business, transnational corporations and banks don't like him because he has increased regulations on them and fined them. He is trying to protect America from any more of the greed that has already destroyed the economies of Greece and the US. Greece was done in by corporate greed when they agreed to be helped by US financial institutions in order to move into the Euro.

    Small Business Majority it is not, founded by a democratic partisan hack and has a liberal agenda:

    "Small Business Majority is nonpartisan only in the most technical sense, in that it is not formally allied with any party. Informally, however, it is allied with the Democratic Party. Mr. Arensmeyer serves as a board member of the Bay Area Democrats, which describes itself as “a network of private citizens active in national Democratic Politics.” Since 2002, Mr. Arensmeyer has given generously, and exclusively, to Democratic candidates, according to F.E.C. records. (“I’ve voted for Republicans,” he offers.)"

    This faux group is nothing more than a front and a shill for liberal causes.

    The “free market” economy can be boiled down to a simple formula: “socialism for the rich, capitalism for everybody else.”

    Big business is forever lecturing the government not to get involved in its affairs. Let the invisible hand of the so-called free market guide us to the promised land, they say. That is, of course, until their utter incompetence, greed, and arrogance drags them to the edge of the abyss instead. Then the government (read: the taxpayer) is suddenly their best buddy. There is no difference between this and a gambling addict who travels to Las Vegas with the understanding that – no matter how bad he is at playing poker – he will always break even. Can anybody out there actually call this capitalism with a straight face?

    Too Big to Fail is 'too Big'.

    You are right. Big business, particularly in the financial industry, is not free market capitalism, but crony capitalism and corruption, manipulating and controlling the government to give them whatever they want.
    Look at who is in charge of the US Treasury today, and what rules and regulations he handed out to those to whom he gave stimulus and TARP money. First rule to the banks: go out and shaft all those borrowers on your books, get out of those real estate and construction loans you agreed to fund and already have made commitments on, use TARP money only for NEW loans, not to meet your obligations on EXISTING loans.
    Oh, and btw, the courts will protect you, the bank, from any lawsuits. You can bankrupt those little businesses (they 'deserve' it for borrowing anyway). A federal judge in Chicago ruled that National City bank acted in bad faith and without cause in foreclosing on one business property, refused to hear evidence of verbal fraud by the bank, and stated that the bank "had the right" to do so. The rest of us who were destroyed got the message.

    I sympathize with Obama Worshippers, I would be very upset if a person that I worship failed to reduce the deficit (over doubling the national deficit) and put the United States in a deeper financial hole. It just demonstrates that Obama is incapable of leading this country to financial prosperity rather he led us down the path of deeper debt.

    If only I was one of those, I don't like politicians in general. I doubt there would be anybody able to get us out of that pattern because the president is not the singular controller of the economy. At a time when small businesses were the source of economic growth everybody helped everybody. Now that many of those small businesses have become great corporations they need to keep themselves there. In my opinion they have more power than the president.

    No one business should be to BIG to fail. Hence our president handing out bail out money. The President giving them OUR tax money. The President is the Leader and has failed to pass a budget (which is his JOB) in 4 years. No he just triples our national deficit and spends stimulus money like there is NO end to the money pit. The buck stops with the President and in Obama's own words, "If I don't cut the deficit in half after 3 years, I should be a ONE term proposition." Well Obama did not, so he should follow his OWN WORDS and give it up.
