Video: Obama Treats Chamber of Commerce Like Joe the Plumber

This one goes out to everyone who is having buyer's remorse about voting for Obama despite his 'Joe the Plumber' moment on the 2008 campaign trail when he said, 'When you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody.' We conservatives couldn't believe that moment wasn't enough to wreck his campaign. The Kool-Aid was just too sweet. Here we are, little more than two years later and president Obama delivers the same line. What's different is he's directing it toward business leaders as practically an informal mandate while unemployment continues to climb.

If you're a business leader and Obama tells you it's your responsibility to share your profits with your employees, what would you do? Probably hire less employees. Profit sharing isn't a bad idea but it's a decision Obama has no business getting involved in. Again, the free market should be allowed to dictate the who and the how much. Mandating businesses share their profits with employees stifles the innovation and job growth Obama claims to want to stimulate because there's less money to invest in such things; it also ignores the benefits of meritocracy.

Now for a very relevant follow-up video. Far left socialist Howard Dean appeared on MSNBC with far left socialist Lawrence O'Donnell to discuss Obama's interview with Bill O'Reilly one day prior. The clip played was Obama's denial to O'Reilly that he advocates wealth re-distribution (see Chamber of Commerce video above). Then Dean actually says that it IS government's job to re-distribute wealth and that it's not a question of 'if' but of 'how much.'
