77% of U.S. Investors See Obama as Anti-Business

Joblessness. Inflation. Economic cluelessness. Ludicrous bailouts. Cash for clunkers. Boondoggle bills. Taxing banks. High-handed but hypocritical harranguing. Blaming others for his own failed policies. Appointing tax dodgers to his cabinet. An arrogant attack mode towards business. Trampling the Constitution to kill cash cows.

Is there any surprise then at the opening paragraph of this Bloomberg/Yahoo story?

U.S. investors overwhelmingly see President Barack Obama as anti-business and question his ability to manage a financial crisis, according to a Bloomberg survey. The global quarterly poll of investors and analysts who are Bloomberg subscribers finds that 77 percent of U.S. respondents believe Obama is too anti-business and four-out-of-five are only somewhat confident or not confident of his ability to handle a financial emergency.
