    Obama Better For Economy, Business Executives Say


    Reuters
    08/17/2012


    LONDON, Aug 17 (Reuters) - Twice as many business executives around the world say the global economy will prosper better if incumbent U.S. president Barack Obama wins the next election than if his Republican challenger Mitt Romney does, a poll showed on Friday.

    Democrat Obama was chosen by 42.7 percent in the 1,700 respondent poll, compared with 20.5 percent for Romney. The rest said "neither".

    The result was different among respondents in the United States, where a slim majority thought Romney would be better for their businesses than Obama.

    Obama maintains a seven-point lead over Romney among registered voters in the race for the Nov. 6 presidential election, despite the fact Americans are increasingly pessimistic about the future, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted last week.

    Well if Obama wins I am sure the World economy will be better.
    And the US economy will be worse then it is now...

    If that is at all possible.

    of course

    When he takes money from us and gives it to them, we become weaker, giving them the advantage.

    about 37% were honest though

    Not another Buffett style thread. The same Warren Buffett who is trying to fight to keep from paying one million in back taxes.

    I don't have much faith that the policies in place are going to be good for this economy.

    I have a lot of faith that the policies MITT proposes would be disasterous for this nation.

    There's my choice.

    Something not very good, versus something I am pretty sure is much much worse.

    Obama is probably going to get my vote, unless something VERY dramatic happens to change my mind.

    I have no obligation base my vote on what pleases foreigners, no matter how much those foreigners and American leftists insist I do.
