So taking over 1/6 of the economy is not enough? He wants the other 5/6.

Nobama, No way, no how.

“We should have one Secretary of Business, instead of nine different departments...”

I have an idea. Let’s sh*tcan the nine departments. Smaller, not bigger.

We should also have a Committee of Secretaries.

Or maybe a Council of Ministers. I think the Russian word for council was, uh, Soviet?

We already have a cabinet level department that deals with business. It is called the Department of Commerce.

The problem with proposing a central “one-stop shop” approach is that they don’t get rid of the other nine shops, they simply put one more shop ON TOP OF THE OTHER NINE!

We will end up with AT LEAST ten levels of screw-ups, instead of nine non-centrally controlled shops.

NO! NO! HELL, NO!!

Indeed. I can't believe this election is even close, it's as if app half of Americans have been bodysnatched by aliens and aren't really Americans. If we thought the damage in Hussein's first term was astonishing, we ain't seen nothing yet if he manages a second one.

The fact that Obama and his campaign are flaying about and throwing out these lame last minute ideas for his 2nd term just proves that they are losing.

That’s not a “Fascism Alert” as much as a “Chronically Clueless Alert”. The good news is, we can stand down on such foolishness before much longer.

According to the constitution the fed govt doesnt have jurisdiction to oversee business, only interstate commerce. The establishment of the office should be declared unconstitutional. It belongs to the states explicitly.

This is the first time this nonsense is coming up. He's clearly flailing around looking for something. Everyone views him as anti-business — because he is. So he flails around with trivial nonsense like this. Its a clear sign of desperation.

How appropriately Orwellian for the Commie in the White House!

To better continue the Obama campaign to destroy FREE enterprise businesses of cause the Regime needs a Secretary and department or Ministry of Business... a la Ministry of Truth and the Ministry of Plenty.

What we really need is a Secretary of “Stay the Eff out of the Way.”

Ronald Reagan said it best (paraphrased), “Government isn’t the solution, Government is the problem.”

giving loans to SBA

Idiotic comment by 0baMao...Nobody "gives" loans to SBA.

In reality, SBA secures loans for businesses.

Hey there’s an idea. No one’s ever thought of that before. A single department for dealing with business. But we should call it the Dept. or Commerce or something.

Duh, we already have a “Secretary of Business,” and he is called The President of the United States of America.

However, Obama might just have stumbled onto the truth here, as for the last almost 4 years our Nation has not had a President of the United States of America.

Thus, “Empty-Chair” Obama may have been calling to be replaced by expert businessman Romney.

BTW, any FReepers out there who would post a reference to President Calvin Coolidge who famously said: “The business of America is business.” ? Thanks.

Would the Secretary of Business help the Department of Bureaus and Agencies communicate with the Bureau of Agencies and Departments and the Agency of Departments and Bureaus? If so, the Department of Redundancy Department could become obsolete.

What world does Obama live in?!? He actually sees this as a political fight and not a fight over the future of the country. The “war” Obama hopes for, if he wins and pushes his power grab, will be much bigger than within the Republican party.

2014 will make 2010 seem like a high school student council election.
