Obama to CEOs: Ask what you can do for America
By JIM KUHNHENN, Associated Press
Echoing John F. Kennedy, President Barack Obama prodded business leaders Monday to “ask yourselves what you can do for America,” not just for company bottom lines, even as he sought to smooth his uneasy relations with the nation’s corporate executives.
Amazing. The president (apparently hearkening back to JFK) tells these CEOs to ask what they can do for their country, as if providing jobs, goods, and services in a very uncertain economy is not enough. What an insult! Here’s what they could really do for their country: Work for Obama’s defeat in 2012.
