Even The Left Knows Obama Is Anti-Business

Interesting post here from The Daily Beast, not known (at least in the circles in which I run) as part of the "vast right wing conspiracy" to undercut the effectiveness of the President.  In it--Professor Joel Kotkin--who seems to be a pretty middle of the road guy from a quick perusal of his internet profile--lays out some thoughts on the growing gulf between the business community--in this case, small business--and the Obama vision. 

As in many posts like this--criticism of Obama on a site generally friendly to the One--the comments section devolves into a schoolyard taunt at times.  But there are a few gems in there worth diving into.

Liberals don't like losing money anymore than conservatives. Liberals (not leftists) want to make and keep their money and have conservatives taxed to pay for their do-gooder schemes. But the last thing they want is money transferred out of their pockets especially when the market is down. Just look at San Francisco, one of the wealthiest and most liberal cities on the planet. That didn't happen because they were mad into wealth transfer.

I've always liked your definition of the difference between Leftist and Liberal, Hammer. I'm just not so sure the line between them is as strongly drawn as it once was.

Well, as I've said before, liberals want us to look like Sweden, leftists want us to look like Cuba. All my life they've had the same goal; defeat conservatives and subvert the Constitution. But they are not the same and when/if the time comes the leftists the liberals an offer they can't refuse.
True leftists are such a small minority they pose as liberals in government, foundations, unions, special interest groups etc. leveraging their small numbers. But make no mistake about it, they're out there.
