He can do as he pleases, but I agree with apdst and megaprogman...it's not a smart business decision.
    yeah, he'll just refuse to hire any more workers, until a GOPer is in the White House.

    I repeat: This business owner is an idiot! But it's his right to operate his business and/or enact hiring practises as he sees fit. Too bad his stupidity is liable to kill his business far sooner than any bill ratified by Congress and signed into law by the President.
    Actually, someone with any business savvy would look at the political climate, before expanding their business.

    The funny part is if people like his position and want to do more business with him, then he just screwed himself over because now he can't expand.

    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.
    Any business man that doesn't gauge the effects of the political climate on his business, probably won't be in in business for very long.

    If, as people claim, they are motivated by nothing but greed, I doubt they'd forego income this way just to get rid of a politician - and why would they need to? What political change do they want if they can make money now? Your claim makes no sense.

    So he takes a stand. To call him an idiot without commenting on his reasoning is well, indisputably partisan commentary.
    Maybe he should put up a sign saying he misses Bush. Oh, wait....

    Oh see, this is where you libs take forefathers like Allenski to the extreme. You think just because he makes a statement that he would have to fore go business that would benefit him because all of the sudden he can't hire anyone.....hahahaha...Too funny.

    The idea that you or anyone else can predict what the political environment will be like a year from now is absurd. At this point, the range of possible election outcomes is anything from an Obama landslide to a Republican landslide.

    "The political climate" is not the same as "the name of the president." The president is not a king who automatically gets his way on anything he wants. There are 535 congresspeople as well. Furthermore, for most types of businesses, the difference between a Republican-dominated government and a Democratic-dominated government isn't very big.

    I don't think the government should arrange its policies on the basis that some people are bad businessmen. The free market will take care of that problem.

    He's just coming out and saying what many business owners are already doing. I don't want to work for this man, so I find him extremely irrelevant. If a Republican wins in 2012 I'm walking off my job on inauguration day. How's that for advance notice?
