Big Business and the Liberal-Left

Given that President Obama is a left-leaning politician who was elected into office during a financial meltdown, he’s been pretty muted in his criticisms of the financial sector.

Indeed, if an FDR voter from the 1930s were to travel in time and listen to a speech on the economy by Obama, they would probably assume he was a Republican rather than a Democrat, which is something acknowledged by Democrat activists.

The fact is that while Obama may well be a progressive on social issues, he’s pretty much on the right when it comes to managing the economy. And that’s a combination the Democrats’ big business backers are quite happy with.

If the left gets in, it’s free trade, open borders, and more women in the workforce, if the right gets in its open borders and lower corporate taxes. Either way big business wins.
