    Ok...what he meant to say is "are there any relevant, non-trolling comments on this topic".

    As for the piece, I don't think that Obama is actively warring against big business, but I definitely see where his policies are going to create a very unfriendly business environment very soon.

    I agree, and as easy as it is to believe that liberals are warring against business, I would say that is only partially correct. I know that liberalism mostly holds business in contempt, and want to simply lower their profits while ignoring the consequences of doing so. Here's where the warring ends and the incompetence begins, when they institute policies to limit business and have GOVERNMENT save the day. Liberals are unable to fathom the fact that people and their personal business transactions make this country and the economy great. They think that government is the ultimate arbitrator in the business world, by controlling all aspects of business transactions to make sure it's all fair to everyone. What they fail to understand is that citizens pursuing their own happiness is what makes this country great, not the pursuit of happiness by the government for everyone.

    Isn't there something about Breaking News being for ... well... news. This is commentary.

    It's also pretty silly - given that I think like a close-minded partisan, my conclusions will also be closed minded and partisan. Q.E.D.

    First, one way the economy might finally take off is for some entrepreneur to invent an amazing new product that launches something on the scale of the dot-com boom.
    What kind of fantasy is this? I guess I'm supposed to take Obama's drug policy as an intential attack on intellectual property. Why exactly?

    Because Obama is evil that's why!!!

    If you want to have health care for everyone, you have to give it to many people for free. Once we start doing that, we will never stop, at least until the government runs out of money.
    This is a vague slippery slope argument that doesn't actually establish a link to Obama's plan. Of course in partisan fantasy world all things are possible. And oh yeah... Obama is a socialist!!111


    End that deferral opportunity and U.S. firms will no longer be able to compete, given their huge tax disadvantage. With foreign tax rates so low now, it is even possible that the end of deferral could lead to the extinction of the U.S. corporation.
    Does anyone really take this alarmism seriously?

    Hasset is preaching to choir in his commentary, so I'm not sure why it should a starting point for discussion. If you don't already share his bias, there's no reason to take it seriously.

    Perhaps so certain folks can debate how fast Obama will end the world?
