Steve Wynn has created tens of thousands of jobs in his lifetime. He owns casinos and he has invested his own money in large projects in Las Vegas and he also likes to spend money and living in luxury. He knows money and he knows business. He knows how to create jobs and he is not stupid.
Today, via the Business Insider, Wynn says this about the Obama administration:
And I'm saying it bluntly, that this administration is the greatest wet blanket to business, and progress and job creation in my lifetime. And I can prove it and I could spend the next 3 hours giving you examples of all of us in this market place that are frightened to death about all the new regulations, our healthcare costs escalate, regulations coming from left and right. A President that seems, that keeps using that word redistribution. Well, my customers and the companies that provide the vitality for the hospitality and restaurant industry, in the United States of America, they are frightened of this administration.And it makes you slow down and not invest your money. Everybody complains about how much money is on the side in America.
You bet and until we change the tempo and the conversation from Washington, it's not going to change. And those of us who have business opportunities and the capital to do it are going to sit in fear of the President. And a lot of people don't want to say that. They'll say, God, don't be attacking Obama. Well, this is Obama's deal and it's Obama that's responsible for this fear in America.
The guy keeps making speeches about redistribution and maybe we ought to do something to businesses that don't invest, their holding too much money. We haven't heard that kind of talk except from pure socialists. Everybody's afraid of the government and there's no need soft peddling it, it's the truth. It is the truth. And that's true of Democratic businessman and Republican businessman, and I am a Democratic businessman and I support Harry Reid. I support Democrats and Republicans. And I'm telling you that the business community in this company is frightened to death of the weird political philosophy of the President of the United States. And until he's gone, everybody's going to be sitting on their thumbs.

A Democratic businessman ripping on Obama. This doesn't bode well for Obama but this is what people have been saying about Obama since Day 1. People just didn't listen and they were angry at the GOP at election time, which was understandable at the time. But now, we have an incompetent administration who has no clue what they are doing. They are doing things by the liberal text book and it has failed and now they are clueless because they didn't have a back up plan. Typical academic types. They have no clue what works in the real world because they don't live in the real world, they live in fantasy land where everything works magically and how it was written in the text book.
Shoot, even the liberal blogs are not supporting Obama. All they do is rip on the GOP but they don't defend Obama. How pathetic is that? And yes, the liberals own Obama- he is not a moderate- he is an incompetent liberal.
Worst president ever and will be a 1 termer. And he could very well bring down the Democratic Party with him.
