What a moron! Who is that grinning fool on the left (clapping his hands)?
President Barack Obama made some concessions to the business community in his State of the Union address Tuesday, saying he'd like to lower the corporate tax rate and foster U.S. job growth and innovation.Many chief executives reacted skeptically to President Barack Obama's offer to lower the corporate-tax rate and foster U.S. job growth, but some said they appreciated the president's changed tone toward business during his State of the Union address.
President Obama was applauded by Vice President Joe Biden and House Speaker John Boehner prior to delivering his State of the Union address.
The Obama administration has been criticized by many U.S. chief executives for being anti-business. Business leaders have complained about the 35% corporate tax rate, the administration's free trade stance and healthcare reform, all of which, they allege, make U.S. companies less globally competitive. Business leaders have also been unhappy with rhetoric coming from the White House following the financial crisis, when the president referred to "fat-cat bankers" and chided bankers for their "reckless practices."
Since the November elections, in which Democrats lost the House majority, Mr. Obama has worked to appeal to the political centerand to business. Last week, he appointed General Electric Co. CEO Jeffrey Immelt to lead a new President's Council on Jobs and Competitiveness.
During his State of the Union address Tuesday night, Mr. Obama said the corporate-tax rate "makes no sense and it has to change." calling on both parties to lower the rate.He also said he would seek to eliminate "unnecessary burden[s] on business."
CEOs welcomed the idea of lowering the corporate-tax rate, but many wanted more details on exactly how Mr. Obama might bring it about.

Why is Obama clapping for himself
Watch what he does not what he says - the two are never the same.
By now we all know the man is a stranger to the truth.
Nothing but lies and more lies.
He’s rushing around the country campaigning on a pack of lies that enable the msm to pretend he’s a real president.
Don’t be so sure that Barry Soetero can’t be re-elected.
Soetero is preparing a ONE BILLION dollar re-election campaign (pay backs for the trillions he spent on his cronies),
He just hired a notorious ACORN thug as head of DNC operations.
Soetero owns 95% of the media.
His approval ratings are creeping up.
okay, who overfed the “fat cats”
This Kenyan doofus hasn’t got a clue on how American business works or how American manufactuers make “stuff”. He and most of his advisors have never worked a day in their lives in a factory, or ever got their hands mildly soiled or dirty. He probably doesn’t even know how to change a lawnmover blade, let alone know a lawnmower works or ever changed a a car tire after reading the instuctions three times.
This is the man who is going to lead us back into proserity? I think NOT!
Suck on some shaved ice, OBAMA
Radical Islamic terrorists Remain Certain Obama is Delivering
the stupid, helpless American people to Them(You Don't Say!)
This is not a concession. This is a cliche.
And, the delusion is strong.
Execs still haven’t learned. Obama can deliver...he’ll deliver a world of hurt to them.
Interesting how this is called "appealing to business" instead of being identified as the corrupt corporatism it is.
Amazing. The federal government is so unconstitutionally involved in business matters, that when the federal government is literally in bed with a politicically connected company, the people shrug.
I guess I shouldn't be surprised at the rank hypocrisy of the vermin on the left.
ok, maybe not literally. Rahm is in Chicago these days.
Along the same lines, this is what I just sent out to my email lists:
Sarah Palin on Barack Obamas State of the Union Address:
Well, speaking of last night, that was a tough speech to sit through and try to stomach because the president is so off base in his ideas in how it is he believes government is going to create jobs. Obviously, government growth wont create any jobs. Its the private sector that can create the jobs. His theme last night in the State of the Union was the WTF, you know, Winning the Future, and I thought OK, that acronym, spot on. There were a lot of WTF moments throughout that speech.
Boy Barry combed the archives, and blatantly ripped off successful themes from his predecessors.
So we got Morning in America from Reagan, the new Sputnik from Kennedy (going to the moon), oh yeah, and he also ripped off another Republican, none other than.., Newt Gingrich’s book title....Winning the Future.
So the alphabet networks are praising the Sun God to their skies for plagiarizing others. They’re too stupid to know any better. ...”
Yes, indeed. The public is not well aware that when you get applause, you do not clap along. Often, I see those at the podium join in when the crowd signals its approval on something or another, and I have to think, don’t you know, you’re not supposed to applaud yourself like that? Sheesh.
There is no doubt he can, if he wants, deliver on anything solidly backed by the GOP. Seriously, is there any bill passed with the whole House GOP behind it that would fail to clear the Senate if Obama threw his weight behind it?
Tigers don’t change their stripes...
He was not installed to improve the quality of life in America—on the contrary-—
“Tigers dont change their stripes...”
Obama’s entire SOTU was devoted to convincing you he has become a spotted leopard.
Anthony Guzzi, CEO of Emcor Group Inc., a construction and facilities-services provider:Mr. Guzzi just hit it outta the park.
"He gave a sound bite but should have been more specific," he said. "For two-and-a-half years now, capital has been afraid to invest in the U.S. in any substantial way."
Right on Matchett, thanks for the ping!
...literally in bed...I imagine they still meet at the bathhouse when they are both in their hometown of corruption.
ok, maybe not literally. Rahm is in Chicago these days.
I loved that reference by Sarah. She's acting more like M. Thatcher, and I like that! .............................. FRegards
