This is America, where we choose to reward people for success rather than punish them and the class warfare argument coming from President Obama isn't working.
Yesterday on Fox News Sunday, Black Entertainment Television Founder Robert Johnson made it clear he isn't pleased with President Obama's demagoguing of the rich and his efforts to attack successful people. Johnson isn't a republican or a tea party member, he's a life-long democrat.
"Attacking me is not going to convince me that I should take a bigger hit because I happen to be wealthy."
"I've tried poor and I've tried rich and I like rich better, doesn't mean I'm a bad guy."
"I didn't go into business to create a public policy success for either party, republican or democrat. I went into business to create jobs, to create opportunity, to create value for myself and my investors."
Johnson's point that people don't go into business on behalf of politicians' policies is crucial. President Obama doesn't seem to understand why people decide to start and grow a business; it isn't to serve the government, it is to make money. Through his constant and repeated calls for American business owners and CEOs to "do their part to save the economy," Obama has made it clear he doesn't understand that concept.
