CAL LITE:

Obama Echoes Coolidge, Reagan, in Praise of CEOs (Matthew Rothschild, December 16, 2010, The Progressive)

I don’t know why Obama felt the need to bow down to the chieftains of American business on Wednesday.

But there he was, sounding like a composite of Calvin Coolidge and Ronald Reagan.

Like Coolidge, who said, “The business of America is business,” Obama told the 20 CEOs: “We want to be boosters because when you do well, America does well.” [...]

Then he went on, like Reagan, and said, “I believe that the primary engine of America’s economic success is not government. It’s the ingenuity of America’s entrepreneurs.”


It's as easy as this: if business does well the next two years then the UR could be re-elected; if progressives do well he has no shot.
