Oh, Joe. Say it ain't so...

Dear Joe (is it still okay to call you Joe?):

I’m sort of shocked, Joe.  Are you guys serious? Y’all seem to be going to a lot of trouble to convince us to believe something other than the truth.

You’re really starting a campaign to try to convince us that you’re not ‘anti-business’? Really? Don’t you guys have anything better to do? Maybe figure out a way to clean up some oil?  Add some jobs private-sector jobs, perhaps?

[Oh yeah.  That’s why you’re doing the campaign to begin with, right?…Because no one is hiring because you’re so…anti-business.]

By the way, if you really want people to believe you’re not anti-business, how about this: Get out of the way of America’s job creators. That would be a good way to start convincing people—if you’re serious, Joe.

If you’re not willing to do that, Joe, wasting your our time trying to convince us that you guys are good for American business is…well…just a waste of time.  [By the way, Google doesn’t count, Joe.]

You should also let the boys at Politico know that you’re only a joke joking about this:

The White House has launched a coordinated campaign to push back against the perception taking hold in corporate America and on Wall Street that President Barack Obama is promoting an anti-business agenda.

Obama has been happy to be seen by voters as cracking down on Wall Street but those efforts have had an unintended result: feeding a sense that the president and his party are indifferent or even actively hostile toward big business, whether those businesses are Silicon Valley tech companies, Midwestern manufacturers or Main Street small businesses.

So the White House has launched a campaign to help instill that confidence, highlighted by Obama’s remarks on Wednesday stressing his commitment to lifting trade barriers as a way to spur economic growth.

The White House campaign to change the view that Obama is anti-business will continue though the week.

For a week?!? Geez, Joe!

After 18 months of demonizing business, kissing union bosses’ butts, nationalizing health care and auto companies, as well as throwing America’s treasury into the toilet bowl, you guys are going to spend a weeka week?…trying to convince business leaders that you’re not anti-business?

Well, good luck with that, Joe.

Until next time.
