Craig Benson is the former Republican governor of New Hampshire and co-founder of Cabletron Systems.
The Guy is a God dam Idiot!
Thugs also have a mindset and orientation to work their way through uncertainty by taking action. “Making things happen” is the hallmark of an entrepreneur, and it defines our 44th president.
The difference is an entrepreneur tries to create for themselves and thugs try to take from others..
They've got to be kidding!
Hussein has never so much as run a lemon-aid stand — everything has been handed to him every step of the way.
The man’s never been accountable for a thing in his life. Until now, that is. And suddenly he wants to wrap himself in the mantle of “entrepreneur?” On the government’s dime? While he showers government agencies with trillions?
What has he ever produced that can be weighed and/or sold? Who has he ever employed? What has he ever built?
This guy is full of it - Just another adorer of O without a shred of substance to stand behind it.
HAHA oh man, that’s funny. I guess destroying our economy could be considered an action. I would say it’s a bad one though.
In the broad scope of Benson's definition of 'entrepeneur', any homey with a pistol would qualify.
I second that. Benson got lucky at Cabletron - and it ultimately tanked. His achievements as governor were unimpressive.

WTF? This guy find some good acid?
You forgot the n
So, 0bama got a % of the DVDs & toy helicopters Brown got? Hadn’t thought of it that way.
Oh, wow I can “make things happen, too!”
I mean it’d be easy, just enter a federal courthouse with a gun... from there the news will spread like wildfire that a National Guardsman, an Iraqi veteran, a “right-wing zealot” ... and so forth. And then there’ll be people whining aand crying about soldiers having weapons and the Government will “take action” by taking everyone’s guns away.
Yep, I could make things happen. [/sarc][/cynic]
LOL - Funny, harsh, and totally deserved.
Benson and another founder Levine were called "corporate misfits" and were unorthodox in their day to day in-house organization with employees.
U.S. Attorney Thomas Colantuono directed a securities fraud investigation of Cabletron Systems away from then-Gov. Craig Benson, despite evidence from another key employee that Benson was involved in sham... transaction to inflate the then Rochester-based firms revenue.
|You got the wrong people in jail. You need to go after Benson. You need to go after [former Cabletron chief financial officer David] Kirkpatrick. They are the ones who are the masterminds. Who do you think taught all the people you are prosecuting how to do this?-Winders 2004 interview, which says Benson was involved in a bogus sale to ensure that Cabletron could make its numbers.|
You know I was trying to think back..and this was the stock I bought back in the 90's when a Cabletron guy let some insider info out (not to me and now thinking back could have been on purpose) at a racket ball court in Haverill, MA... and I am sure I bought it "on rumor" for a quick profit..then the spin offs, some new guys came in- which ended badly for later investors..I forgot all that went down, but got ugly. Those were risky times to play short term focus in the market (for fun). Like "the wild wild west". (sighs.. blast from the past! I think I miss those days..then there was Rambus-oh well! another story)
“You forgot the n”
I was thinking it!
The Guy looks up to Zippy the Con Man??
Nope, Obama taxed it.
“Making things happen” like destroying the economy.
Actually, I know some. In fact, I’m one of them. It is a sh***y game, but actually a fairly easy play if you saw it coming in time. Is it the game I wanted to play? Nope. But when the dumbed down American public votes in a bunch of marxists, it is a game I will play out of necessity. Frankly, it will be better for me personally, but I really wish I wasn’t forced into this game. I’d rather play in a free market. More real competition, so a bit harder, but better for our society, which would be worth it to me.
BTW, I know those two posts seem contradictory. I’ll just say that mt biz partners and I saw this coming when mclame was nominated, so we took steps and don’t fall into the “most entrepeneurs” category. We hope.
