22 years ago, I left corporate life to start my own business for one central reason. I couldn't handle the fact that decisions were made, often critical decisions, based on political considerations. In other words, what does the boss think I should think or what does his boss think I should think ... or I owe someone a vote on a project because that someone gave me their vote. In this environment, poor business decisions are inevitable because political turf and inter-office relationships were more important than the bottom-line business results of the company. It was my own living hell.
Dear President Obama, I have written to you before through this blog and through your various websites. It is now 30 days since you were sworn in as our Chief Executive. While it is way too early to pass judgment, I have to say that what I have seen so far has dashed a great deal of hope for me and confirmed my fears.
Dear President-Elect Obama: Well only 12 days to go. Are you ready to take on some of the biggest challenges in a generation?
Help!!! We, as a people, witnessed another circus this week in Washington as the 3 heads of the Auto Industry and the head of the UAW testified and answered questions before respective committees in the House and Senate. Its enough for me to wonder if there are any signs of intelligence in the universe of the Washington scene ... all of it ... Congress, the Administration, the new incoming administration, the Press and the whiz kids who visited this week from Detroit.
Through the final months of the race for the White House, Barack Obama continued to dominate his opposition, John McCain.
Barack Obama launched Change.gov on Nov 6 for the transition to the new administration on January 20, 2009.
Dear President Obama, I am a middle aged small business owner of two companies, one in telecommunications and one in internet marketing. I did not vote for you because I disagreed with much of what you espoused during the campaign.
It would be shocking to me, at this point, if Barack Obama is not elected as our next President. It reminds me of the phrase ... "be careful what you ask for ... you might just get it."
