Skip to comments.NBC's David Gregory: Obama Rhetoric 'Anti-Business,' 'Could Really Discourage Businesses' in U.S.

Wow, just wow. Never would have seen this one coming, but is one of the standard-bearers of the media elite recognizing the Obama administration's anti-business populist tone is inhibiting the U.S. economy?
On the June 18 broadcast of CNBC's "Squawk Box," NBC "Meet the Press" moderator David Gregory was asked to respond to a June 18 New York Times article by David Sanger suggesting the Obama administration may be "overstepping" and discouraging business growth in the United States. Gregory told "Squawk Box" viewers that in his view they were and called it "a real problem."

How long until the DNC bigwigs start suggesting to Obama that perhaps running for re-election may not be such a hot idea?
Without trust and cooperation no truly great enterprise can be undertaken, while the fruit of such enterprises is wealth beyond the dreams of narrow chiselers.
I’d imagine a lot of these wealthy liberals are getting some bad news from their accountants and stock brokers, and they are not happy.............
Anti business rhetoric???
How about all the friggin’ ANTI-AMERICAN puss he has been spewing since he took the oath of office, TWICE???
There is a big overhang of uncertainty restraining the US economy. Right now a huge tax increase will automatically happen next year, everyone is wondering when the massive deficit spending will kick up inflation, and the Democrats are threatening to whack the economy again with cap and tax. No company is going to bet on strong growth in these conditions. These idiots are murdering the economy.
Not gonna happen. They adore Him...................

With a Communist in the White House, why would any of us invest in American businesses via the stock market?
That is unless we can guess upon whom the Politburo will give their blessings.
The old rules are out the window.
And Soros makes more money.
I’ve been thinking for months that it’s him that wants to be a one-termer....he’s reached his pinnacle and satisfied his ego; besides the job’s a bit over his head and he probably sorta realizes that.

No Sh!+!!!!!! You guys been sleeping with Rip Van Winkle??Is the Retard/Libtard media finally figuring that out??? (sighing in contempt and amazement at the utter stupidity of thd media. . . .)
I’m not optimistic. i see the comments on my facebook page from these libs and they are still deluded.
Never invest in a country without the rule of law.

Hopefully the Dinosaur Media is starting to realize this as well.
Thanks, David Gregory & NBC, for making ABC’s job that much harder.
I have always believed that, too.
The job of POTUS is beneath him. And it is actually a “job”, which he has never had prior to now. I think he is finding out that it kinda sucks.
He ran, won, made history - time to move on. He can go be Sec. General of the UN, be “citizen of the world”, soak in global adoration, not have to work.
Thanks a whole lot for this revelation, Mr. Gregory. It’s due to people like you voting for this fraud that we are in this horrible situation. Especially the oiled pelicans thank you.
Money trumps ideology every time..................
I'm not so confident that his mental processes will let him see that he's incompetent. Besides, he and the family are really enjoying the perks of office. I don't see him leaving willingly.
As Jesse Jackson once said, “He’s never run anything but his mouth.”.................
Really? How will you be able to tell, Dave?
Wonder if Gregory is beginning to think he may not get a year-end bonus from NBC or something worse.
Many of the leftist liberal bureaucrats are just naive to understand what socialism really is. Hopefully the more they see and understand it the more they will get enlightened and join us in defeating it. They have children and grandchildren to think of.
Actually I'm kinda envious of the left - its obvious that deconstructing the left's power structure in Washington will be a suicide mission but I can't think of a potential candidate on our side who'd be willing to take the leap.
I’m beginning to see 1980 played out all over again except this time it isn’t Carter/Kennedy.
Nice when every now and then a particle of sanity invades a leftists mindset.
Doesn’t last long but it’s a start.
If it took Gregory this long to figure that out, he must ride the short bus.
No, they don’t. They are starting to see him for what he is. His “attitude” is showing and they aren’t liking his elitist arrogance. One term president.
I expect that the leftmedia will try to pretend that Obama was just too brilliant for us to appreciate. Barf!
Gregory’s probably getting spanked as I write this. He’ll be heavily reeducated this weekend by his NBC/GE overlords. By Sunday he’ll be spouting the Jake Tapper observation that “Obama had a good week.”
The homegrown commies never stopped to think that when they voted for The Destruction of America that it could include them too?
I was speculating with another FReeper on this awhile ago.
One term may have been his plan all along. Figure that he gets the boot in 2012, dumps Michelle in 2013, gets $20 million per volume of the endless anthology "My Life as the First Black President", and hits the lecture circuit to do what he does best - getting paid 50K a pop to read a teleprompter to adoring sycophants.
They thought that he was going to go after the “evil rich”, which of course, did not include them................
The "job" is incidental to him.
His objective is to fundamentally transform the U.S. into a Fascist/Marxist state, with so many dependent on the state teet that it would be impossible through "democratic" process to reverse it.
Who are those who want what others earn taken away and given to them than those who promise to do just that?
If he can stick it to those who believe in personal liberty and limited government enough to accomplish that in one term, so much the better.
The "job" of the presidency is just pomp and circumstance to such a committed, evil ideologue.
Somebody in his circle of friends is helping him decide what to say. NBC/MSNBC is potentially to be controlled by new management, with the Comcast/Universal/NBC joint venture.

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.” — C.S. Lewis

Getting a clue why there’s no recovery? D’ya think?
That’s right-—”Fat Cat” and “Greedy” never applies to them (or those lowlifes in Hollywood)
I’ve read that American businesses have 1.8 TRILLION DOLLARS sitting on the sidelines. They are never going to spend it with the way government is borrowing and spending. They know the taxes are coming, why make their positions even worse than they already are?
Obama is anti-business and anti-corporations. He is also anti-taxpayer. Like he said to Joe the Plumber, it’s good to spread the wealth.
Joe Barton was right in his first apology.
Obama is the most anti-small business chief executive since Joseph Stalin. Larger companies with campaign contributions to make (Rand’s “aristocracy of pull”) can buy themselves a piece of the oligopoly - but small business gives the peasants all sorts of unsavory anti-Socialist ideas about self-reliance and independence, and it must be crushed.
All of the significant people in Obama’s life were Marxists.
Jesse Jackson had this Obama clown pegged.
They cannot stand being trumped in arrogance.
Barry is doing the job that he was picked by his creators to do. This has been many years in the making.He's right on target.What appears as failure to us is great success to his puppeteers.
Id imagine a lot of these wealthy liberals are getting some bad news from their accountants and stock brokers, and they are not happy.............
Why do you think they want Cap n Trade so damned bad? MASSIVE profits to be made in trading carbon futures.
He might not listen and run the Democrats into the ground. I have noticed that for once, conservatives are on the offensive and the Democrats on the defensive.
