One More Jumps Off The Bandwagon

Ted Leonsis is the owner of the Washington Capitals, but he's also a supporter of President Obama who maxed out his contributions to the President in 2008 when he was running for office.  Which is why these words carry some special weight...
Economic Success has somehow become the new boogie man; some in the Democratic party are now casting about for enemies and business leaders and anyone who has achieved success in terms of rank or fiscal success is being cast as a bad guy in a black hat. This is counter to the American Dream and is really turning off so many people that love American and basically carry our country on their back by paying taxes and by employing people and creating GDP.

This is a bad move all designed by some pollster who said this is the way to get votes during the re-election. It should be stopped. We should be healing and creating teams NOT dividing and pitting people against one another.

I know the President isn’t speaking to me specifically when he talks but many times I hear stuff and I cringe personally. As a friend told me the other day who lives in China, “Every time your President talks of late, it costs us billions in market cap and in confidence in your country and your economy.” Why do we devalue success in the US when the rest of the world is trying to emulate what we have created as an economic system?
Read the whole thing.

To quote John McClane...

You're a little late, but we'll take all the help we can get in 2012. Just do us a favor and start realizing that this is what the Democratic Party is about -- you don't have to give money to the GOP, but stop funnelling cash to people who want to punish success.
