Barack Obama certainly has outdone George W. Bush at being “The CEO President.” With Bush it was merely a metaphor.
Those who doubt automaking magnate Obama’s qualifications for running a corporation – you know, those basic fundamentals, like making a payroll -- should be reassured by the fact that since taking office Obama has consistently made a whole bunch of payrolls.
First he paid off the big-city Democrat Mayors with the “Stimulus” Bill -- and he didn’t forget ACORN’s commission check either. He paid off Democrat cronies by doubling-down on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. He paid off the UAW by letting them cut in line in front of secured creditors at Chrysler’s bankruptcy. This week he is paying off the Trial Lawyers by opening vast acreage to exploration and drilling for new supplies of domestic lawsuits. That's "stimulus," of a sort.
Whose payday will be next? I’m not sure, but I know who will have to come up with the money.
