Casino mogul Steve Wynn, a lifelong Democrat, has been on an anti-Obama tear as of late, warning of the repercussions of reelection. In particular, Wynn has been warning of how Obamacare would negatively affect employment, the nation's greatest challenge during this economic depression. In a recent interview with Jon Ralston, host of Ralston Reports on NBC-affiliate KSNV MyNews3 in Nevada, Wynn said that he, his colleagues, and his employees are "frightened" of the prospect of an Obama 2nd term:
The president is trying to put himself between me and my employees. I have no idea what goofy idea, what crazy, anti-business program this administration will come up. I have no idea. And I have to tell you, Jon, that every business guy I know in the country is frightened of Barack Obama and the way he thinks.For those who believe that Obama and Romney are essentially the same candidate, ask yourself the following: Since Gary Johnson has no chance of winning (let's be realistic), would you rather see the reelection of a president of whom the nation's jobs creators are afraid (if you've ever been long-term unemployed as I have, there is no way you'd allow that to happen), or would you rather have a new president who might force Bernanke to pack his bags and reduce barriers to employment? Sure, it's all talk right now. And Romney does have a history of flip-flopping. But at least he's saying some of the right things.
