    So Obama could be gone and we could still have the same set of goobers passing the objectionable legislation.

    If the guy isn't planning on hiring anyone soon anyway, then this is just good marketing. If not, then it's kind of dumb to make business decisions based on emotions.
    Yeah and the Democrats still own two-thirds of the government.

    But the business owner specified Obama.

    Yeah, because he's the Democrat holding one-third. Not to mention, he's the one that's promised to by-pass Congress at every available oppurtunity to promote his crazy agenda.

    There is very little that Obama can do to significantly impact the economy (for better or worse) without congressional approval. Actually, there is very little that he can do anyway. Unless Congress decides to pass another massive stimulus, which doesn't seem to be in the cards, all that Obama can really do is to appoint a good Chairman of the Federal Reserve (which he did)...who has to be confirmed by the Senate anyway.

    In the absence of strong fiscal policy, the economy will just do whatever it's going to do. The idea that the president can singlehandedly solve economic problems is ridiculous.

    If the repeal of Dodd Frank or Obamacare came across his desk, would he sign it?
