I know numerous people in all sorts of businesses that have put everything in hold.
I had a contract to purchase a small office building to relocate in.Part of the move would have included hiring several new people.
The building was a fabulous deal. Currently owned by old money who wanted to turn it this year. I have them at 50% below what they were asking a year and a half ago. It is a done deal except that I wrote a clause in to the contract that stipulated if Barack Obama was re-elected I can walk away within 30 days from the election. As of right now I’m leaning towards walking the deal and outsourcing the additional employees work to Costa Rica.
The sellers did the deal because they could not believe that Obama could ever get elected. Frankly, I don’t think he did, I believe that they stole the election.
“I wrote a clause in to the contract that stipulated if Barack Obama was re-elected I can walk away within 30 days from the election.”
I too believe it was stolen.
