WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) -- President Barack Obama told business leaders Wednesday that he's no socialist plotting a government takeover of the economy( I just plays one on TV).His administration isn't anti-business,(as long as it is controlled and regulated by the government) he said in a speech to the Business Roundtable, an organization of chief executive officers of major U.S. corporations. "It's pro-America and I don't apologize for it."
"Contrary to the claims of some of my critics,(Tea Party Patriots) I am an ardent believer in the free market,"(and I will work to tax business and redistribute the wealth) Obama said. "I believe businesses like yours are the engines of economic growth ."(in China and India)
I firmly believe that America's success in large part depends on your success," (and a fist full of dollars to my re-election committee )Obama said.
"We are all in this together,"(Na Na Na, I can't hear you) he said in asking the business leaders to help him create a smarter(poorer) government that will be pro-growth and pro(union)-jobs.( if we can survive the remaining 3 years of this administration) Obama's remarks came on the eve of a high-stakes summit (ambush) with congressional leaders about the way(his and only his way) forward on health-care reform, momentum for which seems to have stalled (fingers crossed) on Capitol Hill just short of the finish line.
