Poll: Majority Says If Obama Was a CEO, He Would Have Been Fired
Foxnews ^

Posted on 09/29/2011 5:23:40 PM PDT by Red in Blue PA

If Barack Obama were president of a major U.S. company, he’d be fired by now. That’s what American voters think -- by a 52-38 percent margin.

Fifty-six percent of independents think a corporation’s board of directors would have already handed Obama his pink slip. Nearly a quarter of Democrats also believe Obama would be out (23 percent).

Based on his resume (or lack of), I wouldn’t have hired him in the first place.

Why would anyone hire a CEO who didn’t subscribe to the core values of the company, and who openly mocked the mission statement and goals of said company?

Maybe on the board, but as CEO? They’re usually held accountable to the stockholders, like Cain was at his gigs.

The scary part is is that ANYONE, after seeing all he has done, would still not fire the clown!

Given his record, what evidence is there that he would recognize the authority of the Board to fire him?

There are several investigations going on concerning the president. The courts are so stacked I doubt if any investigations resllt in a conviction . See what was going on all those years you were living it up, or raising a family, or working hard? The termites of Communism invaded the foundation of America! And termites are difficult to get rid of.

I don’t know Jeff Immelt has done much worse for GE since 2001 and he still holds his job.

Under Immelt’s watch GE has lost about 1/3 of its value. Why is he still there?

Not so obvious to me. What's to say in our current cockeyed world that Obama wouldn't now be the CEO of GE or GM?

And if he failed at one of those places he could go on to be the CEO of HP.

Being intelligent or ethical doesn't seem to be a prereq to run a major corporation these days.

As a longtime business owner, and one who deals with high end businesses, the man would never even been asked to interview for a CEO position.

The genius of his promoters is that they manipulated public perception to accept this guy as legitimate. Those people could get an interview for CEO for the singular accomplishment of successfully selling this piece of nothing to the citizens of the USA.

If Obama “were”, not “was”.

Must have been a product of the American school system.
Thanks liberals.

I saw my first blue Obama 2012 bumper sticker yesterday. Made me think I should buy a bunch of blue “Stop” stickers to correct the errors when I see them.

Obama as a CEO? Maybe in an alternative universe. Hell, he’s never worked for a company, never worked a day in his life, never earned a promotion, never managed people, and never met a payroll. He’s nothing but an AA/AA flunky. Nobody on the planet would hire him as a CEO except may Fidel Castro or Hugo Chavez.

What a sad state of affairs that a nation this great could be taken in by such a flimflam man.

If I were blaming my failures and utter incompetence on someone we hasn’t even worked there for 3 years, I don’t think that would fly either.

An unknown guy shows up at your company’s door.
Says he wants the CEO position.
Won’t reveal his education records.
Has no leadership experience.
Has no executive experience.
Has a grudge against your core business.
You ask for his credentials and then you are shouted down as being racist because he is a black man.
He gets the job anyway.
He moves in and proceeds to target all your good customers.
Hires friends who have no experience in your industry. Pays them handsomely.
Fires all your current good vendors and goes with overpriced new vendors who cannot deliver.
Goes on vacation every other week.
Puts his feet up on your desk.
Spends the Christmas fund on golf
Throws parties for his buds and takes the cost out of your paycheck.
Laws? Those are for the little people.

Then the board has enough and asks for his resignation.

He then sets fire to the building and blames on it some crazy bible and gun toting racist white folks.

descriptive enough?
