Our Junior Achievement President

07 Feb

Recently, President Obama attempted to “make nice” with the US Chamber of Commerce. As we have already seen, the Commander-in-Chief is really only adroit with his “hat in hand” routine when bowing before despots and human rights violators. When confronted with red-blooded American entrepreneurship, Mr. Obama flashes all the sincerity of Paul Lynde delivering a snappy comeback from the center square of the Hollywood Squares.

His latest attempt was no exception. It was another example of our President, once again flashing his complete lack of gravitas (hee hee) when it comes to any and all things business. No fools, they, the Chamber was reported to have applauded only twice during the entire 35 minute speech. And one of those was at the conclusion of the evening, when Obama offered the Chamber President the dinner receipt for a tax deduction.

Once again, President Obama perpetuated the myth that America’s standard of living has seen no discernable increase in decades. But feeling brave, probably from the oyster entree, the President again displayed why community organizers make bad Presidents. Stirring up trouble and fomenting discontent in the Middle East is MORE up their alley. The President complained that over the last few decades American businesses have failed to “share profits with the workers.” Even the Vice-President of the Beta Club knows that in business, the workers’ wages and salaries AREN’T included in profit. They are part of the overhead. The part that is computed BEFORE profit is arrived at, and dutifully reported to the IRS, I might add. And to delve into the social justice of the profits (and the losses) being the sole property of the capital risk taker would be too much to ask. We’ve already seen the President has no interest in FOREIGN policy. I’ll just bet Mr. Obama expects the workers to suffer through capital LOSS as well? No?

This is not the first time, Democrats have made the same gaffe. Perhaps I’m reaching; the term”gaffe” would imply that it was unintentional. The smart money is that this was no “gaffe” and is another in a long line of attempts by liberals to steal the language, change meanings, own words and definitions like Chavez would own an oil company or Obama a major car maker.

Instead, Obama’s speech read more like some teenager’s warm-up speech for a Junior Achievement project wowing his spellbound classmates with how he’s going to have Coke machines with FREE sodas for everyone that works at HIS business, when HE grows up.

Democrats are good with bureaucracy. Bureaucracies don’t EARN profits. Bureaucracies don’t meet needs, sate demand, create, build, sell or even promote anything. Democrats should stick to bureaucracies. And conservatives should start stamping bureaucracies out.

    Obama really doesn’t get it. When was the last time you heard someone say “I want to start a new business in order to employ a lot of people and pay a lot of taxes”?
    Someone needs to inform Obama that businesses are created and expanded only when there is a reasonable expectation that their investment will result in a positive return on investment.

    Martin,
    Liberal Pols have pay a mighty high price, up to and including their dignity, to be a Democrat politician. There not just going to chuck that away. The teflon D behind their name is too precious to waste on their conscience.
    Better to concentrate your efforts on the many self-identified rank-n-file Dems in your family and at work, unless you work for a government agency, that is.

    Obama really has no clue about business or the private sector. We have a massive federal bureaucracy that Obama wants to increase at the expense of the private sector (that means us).

    We have a Dept. of Energy that does not produce energy, a Dept. of Education that does not teach children, a Dept. of Agriculture that does not grow food, a Dept of Commerce that does not engage in commerce, a Dept of Labor that produces no useful labor, a Dept of Transportation that does not transport anything, a Dept. of HHS that does not provide medical care or provide for secure retirement… and I could go on.

    The point is that Obama thinks these agencies, not businesses, are what produce wealth. The leopard does not change his spots. Obama’s PR and rhetoric may change, but his antipathy to private business remains and he is just altering his tactics to attack from a different direction.

    Professional Liberals rarely change their spots, indeed. Unless there’s a big pay-day in it for them; see Ariana Huffington.
