I am curious to know if its Fortune mag (part of CNN/Time Warner) that endorsed her, or actual businesses.

Fortune (and Time Inc.) have been SO wrong on so many things related to business... it appears it has struck again. Maybe their hypothesis is that business is betting on her (if so, this probably means the long-over-due correction is here and will take place in the next 15 months) — if they’re saying they WANT her, then I know they are wrong.

Businesses may prepare for a Hillary presidency but no business in its right mind would support her candidacy. Unless its from fear of retaliation.

Leftist 'biz' leaders love the way Hillary bobs her head up and down like a yes MAN. Or, is it rather like one of those plastic chickens poised over a cup of water that contunes to nod up and down?

Fortune Magazine...which has never been my favorite, is (as usual) personna non grata in this household.

I thought the pic of Tony Blair was almost as bad.

Hillary does look rough there, and I am very skeptical of this article as well - she’s too much of a socialist to be the posterchild for Big Business, especially the healthcare sector.

Country club RINOS band together with the Google/Apple/Simi Valley new age business types to support the candidate that will ultimately destroy them. This is a case of handing the bullets to the enemy so they can shoot you.

These are the same people who are embarrassed of conservatives and Christians within the Party. Business leaders have always been political whores in some measure, but the Republican Party is sick and this is a manifestation of that sickness.

Big business loves this chick because she will crush their rising competition/small business through tax hikes and regulations.

So it seems. Or it could be careful maneuvering to revive her aura of inevitability, now that Obama is steadily gaining ground. This story is completely BOGUS. I have no doubt about it.

Yea, I’m sure business is jumping up and down for Hillary to come in and tell them how they are allowed to make money.

And what is up with that picture? It is rare a photo which captures her soulless eyes gets past the editor.

Given that the Clintons OWN and CONTROL the IRS
AND have over 900 FBI files,
the Fortune 500 companies clearly know who is QUEEN.

Business loves Hillary?!

Oh, they mean the lobbyist business, alien smuggling business, abortion business, infotainment television business, hair and makeup business, plus-size phe-male haute-couture business, paper-shredding business, electronic surveillance business, construction and lawn care business, litigation business, food service and hospitality business, etc., etc.

Silly

We need to start a magazine called “The Modern Progressive”. Fill it full of liberal tripe, schedules for Grateful Dead Concerts. Lists of the best soup kitchens around the country, where to buy Birkenstocks, retailers that will cash welfare checks etc.

Then when major elections roll around, the magazines will endorse conservative candidates.

Many companies seem to have a definite liberal bent. They are so terrified of offending anyone that they seem to be giant politically correct mindless, soulless machines.

And big business seems to like big government. They can talk free market all they like, but govt regulation helps to favor the large players who know how to deal with the regulation. It helps keep competitors out of their market space.

What buisness really thinks of Hillary


A presidential bust of Hillary Clinton unveiled at the Museum of Sex on August 9, 2006. Accentuating her sexual power and bolstered by the presidential seal, The Presidential Bust of Hillary Rodham Clinton: The First Woman President of the United States of America will be officially open for public viewing on August 9 for a limited six week run.

I agree. You see it all the time. Businesses kiss the butt of the very people who have sworn to destroy them. An additional aspect of this though might be that big business would love to have a socialist in office who would institute one payer health care(taking that responsibility out of their hands) and maybe even an expansion of social welfare/retirement programs(also taking that off their bottom line). Most big companies are global today and don’t care a whit about this country and its future just what is best for the company’s coffers. Having the government take over those high budget items like they do in Europe probably looks awfully good to big global concerns like GM, Ford etc. Add in open borders with lots of cheap labor to keep the unions in check and a Hillary starts to look pretty good.

I don’t like breck boy, but his two Americas is truer than a lot on FR would like to admit. Trust me the powers that be in big business wouldn’t mind in the least seeing that trend continue if it means more bucks in the company’s coffers at the expense of the working stiff and the tax payers.

Don't confuse a magazine about business with business. This is still the mainstream media, remember. And the media really, really, really wants a female President, and that means Hillary. The media desperately wanted a female Speaker to come out of the '06 elections, and pulled out all the stops to get it. This is just one more of the mainstream media falling in line to cheer-lead for a Hillary! Presidency.

Sad thing is, the way things look now, they'll probably get it, unlike Republicans/conservatives can come together behind whomever emerges from the primaries, and not tear each other apart over who is the more "pure" conservative. That is the road to yet another defeat. I sure hope we don't go down it once again, because when we're defeated and Hillary! gets in, it will be the end of the Republic as we've known it.

Why would anyone in business read Fortune magazine? It is just a bunch of ads disguised as news surrounded by ads.

Exactly!! Socialist president Hillary works out just fine for the largest corporations. They can hire people to deal with insane regulations (compliance) and deal with them in court. Small businesses have a hard time doing this.

Hillary style socialism means the Feds will have lots more dealings with major corporations because these are their cash cows. To be milked to pay for socialist schemes. The compliant corporations will play ball with Hillary to get preferential treatment and to avoid her cudgel

That is the danger many are failing to see. If the Rudy haters (I am a FredHead myself) sit it out during the generals over Rudy, it's pretty much Hara Kiri for the GOP. This damnation of a woman will stop at nothing and use every bit of power available to her to ensure her reelection in 2012.

"They can hire people to deal with insane regulations (compliance) and deal with them in court. Small businesses have a hard time doing this."

Socialists would be happy to run all small businesses into the ground. It leaves them with fewer big guys to regulate.

They hate private property ownership. Note that they love renters. They subsidize renters. When they get the chance, they regulate those who own rental units. Most urban voters are renters. Renters like to regulate private property owners.

Tick, tick, tick.

In my opinion, you have hit the nail on the head. The corporate giants want to preserve the steady inflow of cheap labor and unregulated sweat shops globally. In addition, Hillary is their best hope for socialized medicine that will increase profits entitling them to larger annual bonuses. Fortune magazine does not represent the interests of small business owners and operators across this country.

Sooo many big businesses in the US have gone SOCIALIST - they want universal healthcare (then they don’t have to offer it), they participate in all the Affirmative Action cr*p, they support Initiatives that are anti-individual....I’d be interested to know WHICH businesses they are talking about....like someone else said....it’s BIG business.....Small biz is where all the major growth is btw...

She promised to raise taxes. There is no way business is pro Hillary. They may be hedging their bets. And they would rather her than other deomcrats. But they don’t want her if they can help it.
