Where Obama has no p

Where Obama has no personal credibility is on issues of job creation and business. Hence he is now surrounding himself with banksters, CEOs, and free trade hucksters. This is bad for the country because corporate profits already reached an all time high last year, and what's good for the Fortune 500 is often bad for the country (e.g., unlimited imio)ratimng. Democrats would be smart to find candidates with some business background. American could use someone who is willing to be a traitor to the Davos class.
