Without a Clue, Barack Obama Suggests He Will Create ‘Secretary of Business’ Position if He Wins 2012 Presidential Reelection
Barack Obama just has no clue when it comes to the economy …
President Obama floated a trial balloon that he would create a ‘Secretary of Business’ position to help the economy if he is reelected for a second term. Good grief, just what America needs, more government bureaucracy. As responded to by Mitt Romney, the US does not need a ‘Secretary of Business’, they United States needs a president who understands business, job growth and the economy.
President Obama says he would like to establish a “secretary of Business” if he wins a second term.
In an interview with MSNBC, the president said he wants to consolidate a number of business and trade-related agencies, creating a “one-stop shop” for oversight.
“I’ve said that I want to consolidate a whole bunch of government agencies. We should have one secretary of Business, instead of nine different departments that are dealing with things like giving loans to SBA [the Small Business Administration] or helping companies with exports,” he said in an interview with MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough.
Obama’s statements amount to a late-campaign effort to burnish his business credentials against Republican Mitt Romney, who has highlighted his success as a private equity executive throughout the presidential race.
Hmm, a Secretary of Business, whose job it is to promote US business. Wow, who would have thought of such a thing? Oh wait, the PJ Tatler has it … don’t we already have a Department of Commerce?
It is rather unbelievable that Obama has had four years to create this position and he had three Presidential debates to discuss the plan with America and did nothing. There is a reason why Romney leads in the polls for who can better fix the American economy. Obama is just without a clue and has no plan except for more of the same pathetic and anemic job growth.
