    I have no issues with it. I think it's a silly decision from a business perspective, but it's his business, he can do what he wants with it.

    Idiots have the right to make business decisions just like non-idiots.

    I didnt post it to say he didnt have a right to do it...I posted it because I believe this attitude of not hiring goes WAY HIGHER into the biggest corporations...they are keeping the misery up for working america to try and force political change in DC and the WH...

    What's he going to do if Obama loses in 2012 (likely) and the Democrats win again in 2016?

    The reasoning behind not hiring is really quite simple and does lead directly to Obama for two main reasons.

    1: Obama is not a leader. (I know many will say this is talking point of the GOP but even a clock is right twice a day.)
    2: Obama is unpredictable. When POTUS's are unpredictable companies get nervous. Companies need continuity. When there isn't any and the companies get nervous they don't hire.
    There's a difference between not hiring because it's just not in your budget to do so, and not hiring because you don't like who is the President of the United State.

    Huge difference! And any businessman who'd use the President as a metrix to guage his hiring practises need not be in business.

    This man's an idiot! Plain and simple.

    Re: 'Company Policy: We are not hiring until Obama is gone'

    Did anyone slamming the man read his reasons for not hiring? It's not political based, it's business based. He believes the business climate sucks, that it's too expensive to hire with unknown higher costs in the forms of healthcare, regulation and taxes coming down the way,a nd he doesn't believe that Obama gives a **** about the plight of businesses in this country.

    So he takes a stand. To call him an idiot without commenting on his reasoning is well, indisputably partisan commentary.
    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.

    As a very small business owner myself, I am waiting to see if 0 is reelected before I make some financial decisions. If he is I will keep trying to make my old worn out equipment work, if he loses I will buy some new stuff.

    If someone else was President but acted the same as Obama I'm sure things would be the same for this buisness owner and many others. It doesn't have so much to do with who is President, but in the actions of the President.

But more likely, he's just blowing off some steam and expressing his political views without making a serious threat. He can do as he pleases, but I agree with apdst and megaprogman...it's not a smart business decision.
    He doesn't have to much worry about on that score.
