    Well same can be applied to you. Do you have a problem with me expressing my opinion to an obvious supporter of Obama? You obviously support Obama also and I guess you expect those of us who don't to remain silent when you all bash those of us (like K) who point out things not favorable you your hero Obama. Sorry about that but it just doesn't work that way. Gees. Thank you, thank you very much.

    Obama - Biden = Captain Zero and his side kick Minus.
    To put the world in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must cultivate our personal life; and to cultivate our personal life, we must first set our hearts right.

    Yeah man! Stick it to The Man! Who needs jobs? Who needs benefits? Who needs the products and services business provide? We can just live off Obama dollars, sing songs and stay stoned all day. We don't need a competent businessman to fix this broken economy--we need a socialist to spend this country into a full blown depression the likes of which the world has never seen.

    We had a businessman "W" Oil Man Bush and his crony business partner and sidekick Haliburton Bob Cheney last time.

    Yeah, that worked out well for all of us.

    I'm just wondering where this idea came from that business men would be any different then a politician. Mabye old school business people whom actually owned their business and cared for something more then their stock market price and how much they could cash out for. Now maybe a business person like Burt Rutan of scaled composites.

    Iacocca saved Chrysler and, thereby, jobs. He's much revered by employees and businessmen alike.

    Now as to all the other liberal views expressed here, your all's opinions sound strangely similar to the views expressed by your counterparts in "Atlas Shrugged".

    Enough said.
    WHY?

    So BO gets blamed for Benghazi where 4 Americans died because the buck stops at the Presidents desk but it's not the same for Iaccoca? Iaccoca green lighted the production and manufacture of the deathtrap Pinto to compete with the imports at the cost of American lives. They all knew it was unsafe and anticipated the deaths of innocent people, but decided it was NOT PROFITABLE to make any changes for safety, under Iaccoca. Ford decided it would be cheaper to pay out lawsuits than re-tool. Hey Hearthman, still think he's a "competent businessman"? At least 500 people burned to death.....some estimate a few hundred more. The problem with some people on this site is that they don't hold individuals up to the same scrutiny as others for the sake of their political party affiliation.

    Must liberals have not read Atlas Shrugged and most conservatives misunderstand the book. I really like when religious people talk about it though.
