How Obama managed to scare Steve Wynn
Why businesses are afraid of Obama.
Last night, Steve Wynn appeared on the "Ralston Reports" a Nevada political talk show. In an interview with host, Jon Ralston, Wynn criticized Obama saying, "I'll be damned if I want to have him lecture me."
"I'll be damned if I want to have him lecture me about small business and jobs. I'm a job creator. Guys like me are job creators and we don't like having a bulls-eye painted on our back," Wynn told Ralston.
I've created about 250,000 direct and indirect jobs according to the state of Nevada's measurement. If the number is 250,000, that's exactly 250,000 more than this president, who I'll be damned if I want to have him lecture me about small business and jobs. I'm a job creator. Guys like me are job creators and we don't like having a bulls-eye painted on our back.
The president is trying to put himself between me and my employees. By class warfare, by deprecating and calling a group that makes money 'billionaires and millionaires who don't pay their share.' I gave 120% of my salary and bonus away last year to charities, as I do most years. I can't stand the idea of being demagogued, that is put down by a president who has never created any jobs and who doesn't even understand how the economy works.
Wynn explained why he felt so strongly about Obama saying that he's afraid of the President.
"I'm afraid of the president," Wynn said. "I have no idea what goofy idea, what crazy, anti-business program this administration will come up. I have no idea. And I have to tell you Jon that every business guy I know in the country is frightened of Barack Obama and the way he thinks."
