    I feel bad for the Secret Service agents that had to go out and bug the guy because some do-gooder libtard faggot flagged him.

    I have clients tell me essentially the same thing every day. Granted, they don't put it on billboards, but until they know how their expense projections are going to be affected over the next few years, they can't afford to take the risk of new hires.

    I wish this guy would be more specific. He doesn't cite any policies that are affecting his business. Sounds like he's a dumbass if he couldn't make any money in heavy construction with all that stimulus money being thrown around. Trying to drum up business playing into conservative talking points sounds like what he's doing.

    This.

    For all the bullshit about lower taxes, etc., what is truly vital is certainty. Give me a roadmap that I can gameplan for. If it's a rocky road, where you're raising taxes, then tell me that. If it's a smooth road, where you're lowering taxes, then tell me that.

    Obviously as a businessman I would prefer the lower taxes. That frees up more money so I can build my business faster. I can hire more people, I have more money to spend on goods to make my business grow, and that helps the economy. But if you're going to fuck me up the ass, at least tell me ahead of time so I can lube up properly.

    Certainty is more important than lower taxes. That doesn't mean lower taxes aren't important, but fucking let me know so I can make long-term plans, dammit.

    The only difference between the presidential styles and policies of Bush and Obama were that Bush had a cooperative Congress working for him. Obama has had to deal with uncertainty and stalemate the whole time, even when Pelosi and Reid were running the show. What we really need is for Boehner and McConnell to act as if Bush was still in office and allow Obama to pass the legislations that he thinks the country needs to succeed. Those guys need to cooperate or get out.

    I'm not trying to be sarcastic or anything, but why is Obama a more uncertain President/responsible for a more uncertain era than any other President? As business people, I can understand you feeling more secure under Bush but was that security that much more "real" then?

    It just comes down to a level of confidence

    The current POTUS is incompetent and he has surrounded him self with out incompetents

    If Hillary were the POTUS this would not be a problem, as whether people like the policies of Hillary or not (and they would be practically identical to Little Barry's) they still would have confidence in her as a manager.

    Why do they have to be the ones to cooperate and not Little Barry?

    I don't know about business as a whole, but if your business niche is medicine/healthcare, then your financial future has NEVER been more uncertain and more threatened that it is with the imminent threat of Obamacare being instituted. And yes, the lack of financial security for healthcare workers is very real under the clusterfuck that Obamacare will certainly be if it should become the law of the land.

    I'd like to add that Hillary would actually be competent at the politics of governing. President Obama is really good at the politics of getting elected, but the guy just isn't good at working with people who don't agree with him. He's a a pure preach-to-the-choir guy.

    Say what you want about President Bush, but even when he owned Congress he got TEDDY FUCKING KENNEDY to co-sponsor NCLB for him. Yes, NCLB is a mess, but on the mechanics of governing, President Bush was smart enough and wiley enough to get Teddy on board, even when he didn't really need to.

    Meanwhile, President Obama didn't have a substantive meeting with Republicans until he lost Congress.

    President Obama just isn't good at working with people he doesn't like. As BS as you may think he was, President Bush got along on a personal basis with politicians he disagreed with. Ditto for President Clinton. Seriously, even after getting IMPEACHED President Clinton was friendlier to an opposition Congress than President Obama is to his opposition Congress.

    Deep down, President Obama sees Republicans as The Enemy. He sees this country's enemies as opponents and he sees domestic opponents as enemies. That's fucking retarded.

    VMS nailed it. Certainty and consistency are the most important things for businesses. Right now companies don't know what will change with tax, regulation, and health care costs... So they are reluctant to expand and hire. This is the problem with electing pure politicians, they simply have no idea how the business world fuctions. If we simplified the tax code and required amendment-level votes to change it substantially, and simplified/repealed Obama-care, we would see an immediate drop in unemployment.

    This guy is welcome to express whatever political positions he wants obviously but would you want to work for a company that consists of such a pessimistic owner willing to risk his fortunes and future on something like who sits in the Oval Office. Good, don't hire anyone and watch your competitors snap up all the best talent. Then when the economy turns around your competitors will be positioned to succeed and you'll be positioned for the bankruptcy court.

    Why are things less certain with Obama? How can you argue that healthcare costs were a predictable certainty before HCR was passed? And put your partisan goggles aside, go back to early 2003, with threats of terrorism and war with Iraq and tell me how the economy was more secure back then than it is now.

    For example, can anyone really say we won't end up with a Frfench-style unemployment system? In France, the owner of a business has to keep paying fired worker for months. It's a way of taking some of the unemplolyment burden off the government's shoulders.

    As bad as state and federal budgets are right now, can you really say that won't happen? It's unlikely as hell here in the US, but would YOU risk a business you've built for your entire life on that?

    There are a million little bullshit things like that which scares the ever-loving Bejeesus out of employers. I wake up at night, worried that this person or that person will sue me: do I add the danger of the government changing the rules on me to fuck me over?

    Give me a level playing field and get out of my way. *I* will fucking save this economy, or at least my corner of it. And people like me will save their corners. We can do this without you, Big Government. YOU CAN'T DO IT WITHOUT US. All you can do is make a shitty economy more comfortable for the wage slaves.

    Barring that, at least give me a reliable map on just how badly you're going to butt-fuck me. I may not be able to save the economy that way, but I can at least keep my corner of it as-is, which is at least as much as you're doing, Big Government.

    There are minorities that refuse to work until Obama is out of office. So it's all cool.

    Because a country's economic security is directly dependent on its level of debt. Whenever it rises above the threshold of 90 to 100% of GDP, the economic future of that country is unclear at best. The only way to clarify that future would be for the government to present a credible plan to lower that debt.

    Such a plan has not been presented. Everything Obama suggested up to this point has been populist nonsense, backed by ridiculous claims on who is and who isn't paying the bulk of taxes in the United States.

    You're joking, right? Because 2/3s of Obama's presidency has been with a Dem Congress... We didn't vote in the cock-blockers until last year.

    Ahhh.... But he said "cooperative", not "Democratic". President Obama is such a brilliant leader that he couldn't lead the party he's the head of, and couldn't get his bills passed when he had A FILLIBUSTER PROOF MAJORITY.

    This is where, if I were on my home PC, I'd post the famous President Obama "Leadership" poster.
