As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Yesterday’s Worst Attempt to be John F. Kennedy

Obama’s message to business leaders at the Chamber of Commerce Monday:

But ultimately, winning the future is not just about what the government can do for you to succeed.  It’s also about what you can do to help America succeed.

Oh please. One of his speechwriters should be fired for this.

Perhaps they’re already at work on a speech related to Obama’s 50th birthday this summer:

Four score and minus thirty years ago, my mother brought forth – not on this continent, but also not in Africa – a new baby, conceived in liberty . . .

  1. Good catch. I thought he echoed Marx with his share the wealth and a 19th century view of business. 50th birthday year. Oy

    “If we’re fighting to reform the tax code and increase exports to help you compete, the benefits can’t just translate into greater profits and bonuses for those at the top. They should be shared by American workers, who need to know that expanding trade and opening markets will lift their standard of living as well as your bottom line.”

  2. Obama lecturing the Chamber on success? Lets see:

    1. Obama was at the helm of the greatest Congressional loss in decades.
    2. Obama has negotiated no trade treaties that *benefit* America.
    3. Obama’s new payroll taxes start in 2014 – the death knell for small businesses that have a large number of employees.
    4. Obama is sureptitiously anti-big business.
    5. Obama fete’d the Chinese, which will increase the trade deficit.
    6. Obama received no concessions on Chinese trademark violations (we loose *billions* every year).
