Why Business Bashing Has Flopped

September 24, 2010 05:48

A recent survey, from Independent Women’s Voice, found 63% of independents said they’d prefer a businessman who has new ideas to an experienced politician. A Bloomberg poll this week found that 77% of U.S. investors find Mr. Obama “anti-business.”



‘What’s behind this shift? Call it a supercharged dose of Democrats and failing liberal governance. As Americans for Tax Reform head Grover Norquist notes, the country has been witness to “pure, distilled government.” It has been led by an administration staffed with career politicians and academics who have insisted that government can solve all. It hasn’t worked. “When Washington fails, what’s the alternative?” asks Mr. Norquist. “It’s people with real-life experience, who can do real-live things.” Business folk have real-life experience.’

‘It was exactly this sort of political shift that helped buoy the Reagan Revolution. We’re still a long way from a repeat, but a new crop of real-world, creative business thinkers certainly can’t hurt. Thank you, Democrats.’
