Barack Obama: a Threat to Big Business
There are exceptions; not everyone in the business community is threatened by Obama.
Paul Volcker, former Federal Reserve Chairman, endorsed him last month. And Obama has been consulting with Warren Buffett and international financier Robert Wolf. Wolf said “When I sat down with him, I found him to be unbelievably refreshing and smart and thoughtful.”
One Democratic strategist said “He's been pretty clear that business would have a seat at the table, but business wouldn't be able to buy all the chairs." Communist!
No wonder the U.S. Chamber of Commerce has given Obama the lowest rating of the three White House contenders. They gave McCain an 80% favorable rating; Hillary Clinton got 67%; Obama got 55%.
The National Association of Manufacturers (not that they're partisan or anything) gave a zero rating to Clinton and Obama; McCain got 100%.
Here are some of the reasons the Good Ol’ Boy Network doesn’t want Obama:
He sponsored a bill that would give shareholders (i.e. the owners of the company) a nonbinding proxy vote on executive pay.
He also voted for a free trade agreement with Peru which would include protections for Peruvian workers and the local environment. What?!?!?!? God created those Peruvian peasants for American businessmen to exploit!
And that’s not all: Obama might amend NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) to include environmental and workers’ protections.
