    Obama 'Unpresidential,' 'Petulant' 'Dividing Us': Langone

    President Barack Obama's conduct during the debate over the debt ceiling has divided the country and will inflict damage that will last well after the battle is over, former New York Stock Exchange director and Wall Street stalwart Ken Langone said.

    =-=

    In sum, the behavior is symptomatic of Obama's disrespect for the office he holds, Langone said.

    =-=

    "He is not acting presidential. He is behaving in a way designed in my opinion to divide us, to make us look at each other with skepticism, with suspicion. That is the end of America as we know it," he said. "The destruction he is inflicting by his behavior will carry on long after we settle the debt limit."

    Damn, CNBC carried this?

    I must say I agree with him 100%
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I think it's a bit hyperbolic. His speech is definitely partisan, but I'm not so sure we weren't already pretty well divided.

    Wait for the 9-11 show. Between Cramer and this guy from England the show is more MSNBC than CNBC. Hard to listen when you want a business versus politics show.

    This is a "he who smelt it dealt it" complain. The sad part is, we aren't in grade school and that doesn't work anymore. Just because Obama addressed it, does mean he's the cause of it.

    America has been divided since its inception, but we are willing to pull together to move forward. Now we have a situation where some aren't willing to pull together to move things in a positive direction.
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.

    The co-founder of Home Depot sharply criticized the president for promoting class warfare through his repeated attacks against "fat cat" business executives and his targeting of tax loopholes.
    Nothing but talking points. Saying Obama has disrespect for the country or the presidency is over kill. This guy can go **** himself. He's pissed off that people actually want to close tax loopholes.

    Exactly. This guy, along with his GOP friends, are afraid they might have to pay the same tax rate as normal Americans, instead of that 15% capital gains tax they usually pay... that is, 15% of the money they have not legally hid from the IRS.

    "The end of America as we know it?" Sounds a little alarmist to me.
