    Sort of like Pee Wee Herman speaking at a football banquet.
    Obama challenges business to "create jobs":cuckoo:
    It is not the job of business to "create jobs". My job is TO STAY IN BUSINESS.
    The man has NO clue about private sector business.
    He has never had to create a budget for a private business, create a business plan, calculate the economic worth on profitability of a potential new employee or review the business plan to determine profitability.

    The man has ZERO experience in the for profit business sector. Here we have a President standing up in a room and telling the largest capitalist business organization that they are in business to hire people and share the wealth.
    Mr President, excuse me sir but you are A DUMBASS.
    I am in business to MAKE MONEY FOR MYSELF AND MY SHAREHOLDERS. If I choose I will hire people THAT HELP PRODUCE THAT WEALTH and I will pay my employees a fair and competitive wage to work for me.

    We need Mitt Romney and bad.

    Erm..no.

    President Obama basically saved their collective asses from disaster. And some of those people sitting in the room should be cooling their heels in the pokey. Instead of being vindictive he went and said what he should have said. America saved all your asses. Time to return the favor.

    Please tell me how he "saved my ass".
    I owe no one any favors.
    I risk MY $, not the taxpayers' $$.
    When has Obama asked anyone on assistance, anyone in the unions, seniors, ANYONE OTHER THAN PRODUCTIVE PEOPLE, to give back anything?
    When?

    You do business with a bank?

    You have to make payrolls?

    Are you totally liquid?

    If you answered yes to the first 2 questions and no to the last, Obama saved your ass too. If you answered no to the first 2 questions and yes to the third..then more power to ya.

    The bank does not pay my employees OR ANY EMPLOYEES.
    A business has to ALWAYS pay their employees with PROFITS.
    My business, NOT THE BANKS OR THE GOVERNMENT, makes the profits.
    ALL businesses have to be liquid to pay their bills and employees.
    ONLY capital expansions are financed by banks. NEVER payrolls.
    Respectfully, you know nothing about small business or most business it appears.
    PROFITS finances ALL business. If I do borrow from the bank IT IS PROFITS that HAS TO PAY IT BACK.
    Where do you get your information?
    98% of American business gets NO $$ from government.

    I owned a bar once..in the way back.

    Noticed you jumped over the questions.

    But the long and the short of it..is if the financial institutions had collapsed, it would have, more then likely, had a negative impact on your business.

    So you want a president with real business experience like:
    George W. Bush - a failure in the oil business, a co-owner of losing baseball before entering politics
    George H. Bush - a short time managing the family oil business followed by a long career in politics
    Clinton - no business experience
    Ronald Regan - no real business experience. Worked as an actor then politics
    Jimmy Cartier - a number of years as a sccessful farmer followed by politics.
    Richard Nixon - no business experience
    Dwight Eisenhower - no business experience
    Harry Truman - worked in a clothing store then politics
    FDR - no business experience
    Hoover - mining engineer, co-owner of moving company, managed a mining consulting firm, on the board of a bank, secretary of commerce.

    Jimmy Cartier was the last president we had with extensive business experience. Most economists believe his policies brought on the 1981 recession.

    Herbert Hoover had extensive business experience and for a number of years was given credit for the Great Depression but today we just give him credit for making the depression worse.

    Presidents with good business backgrounds have not done so well for this country.

    The man is an ivy league, wall street puppet. The sooner we rid ourselves of an elitist oligarchy in D.C. the closer we'll come to real freedom. I won't honor you leftist cowards by writing about the real hate I feel for your executive charlatan.

    When an American citizen states that a business has an obligation to hire more workers they know nothing about business.

    I make payroll with my profits, never in 30 years with the help of a bank.
    I have to be liquid fully to cover the payroll.
    I am totally liquid. I owe the bank zero on all 3 of my businesses except my investment business which has no employees or revenues for the last 4 years. The bank solicits my business there, not the other way around.
    I know of no business that a bank pays the payroll, subsidizes losses and manages the business.
    When did the bank ever pay your bills or payroll when you owned a bar?
    Many Presidents have not owned a business BUT they knew how a business is run.
    How come Obama ONLY asks the producers and never the moochers to give something back?
