    Papa Obama Seen as Anti-Business by 77% of Investors -Where would they get that idea?

    Jan. 22 (Bloomberg) -- U.S. investors overwhelmingly see President Barack Obama as anti-business and question his ability to manage a financial crisis, according to a Bloomberg survey.
    The global quarterly poll of investors and analysts who are Bloomberg subscribers finds that 77 percent of U.S. respondents believe Obama is too anti-business and four-out-of-five are only somewhat confident or not confident of his ability to handle a financial emergency.
    The poll also finds a decline in Obama’s overall favorability rating one year after taking office. He is viewed favorably by 27 percent of U.S. investors. In an October poll, 32 percent in the U.S. held a positive impression.
    “Investors no longer feel they can trust their instincts to take risks,” said poll respondent David Young, a managing director for a broker dealer in New York. Young cited Obama’s efforts to trim bonuses and earnings, make health care his top priority over jobs and plans to tax “the rich or advantaged.”

    Billy boy raised taxes on the highest earners, and we had the biggest stock market boom in history.

    Problem isn't just lifting top marginal rate a few points, but Bam's endless rhetoric against profits of all kind.

    He has no problem with profits as long it's his buds making them.

    He demonizes the stereotypical rich in pure Marxist ideological form.

    It's his Bread & Butter.

    He blames Bush for the economy but any fool can tell that his ridiculous rhetoric is the cause of most of our economic woes.

    Not his faithful Obama Bots. Go ahead make a poll and make it viewable and see how many people like Jillian and company, if they are brave enough to take it, support him as being good for Business.

    They believe that the system sucks....so why not scrap it and start over.

    In effect turn the whole county upside down...thus turning us into Venezuela.

    Did the US economic system nearly collapse?

    Yes.

    Did it fully collapse?

    No.

    Why not?

    Because it was a sham.

    Hedgefunders started calling in their investments to the tune of billions of dollars and ACORN started telling their members, friends, and anyone they could to stop paying their mortgages. Thanks to the help of Barney Frank and Chris Dodd thousands of loans were given to folks that shouldn't have gotten them and never could pay them back.

    All of the sudden the Fed Chairman and his own economic adviser starts telling Bush that banks are about to collapse. So the media takes it and runs with it. The funny thing about it is it was all a trick to takeover banks and companies by Obama and his financial supporters. Notice the timing. September 08'. Just in time to push him over the top and win the White House.

    The Recession was caused by fear in the markets and by a lack of confidence by consumers. Businesses refuse to take any chances in this poisonous anti-business environment thanks to the destructive rhetoric of Obama. Jobs are being lost because everyone is worried that the economy is gonna collapse in the next year or so. Banks refuse to go through the same BS that happened in 08' so it's tougher to get a loan. Businesses aren't able to get loans and expand so jobs are being lost instead of created.

    It's all pretty straight forward if you have an open mind.

    That's alright then.

    The rest of the world can be sure the sham won't happen again I assume?

    Well then I guess it must have been the other 23% of investors who drove the stock market up over 25% in President Obama's first year.

    Which easily beat 'pro-investor' guy G W Bush's entire presidency, which isn't hard to do since the market had a net LOSS for the duration of Bush's presidency.

    Let's see...

    Stock market up 200% under Clinton, down 25% under Bush, up 25% (already) under Obama.

    hmmm....

    Obama is anti-business and therefore anti-jobs.
