Yet another person waking up to the fact that Obama ain’t the guy we were told he is by the media, and by Obama himself:
President Barack Obama’s conduct during the debate over the debt ceiling has divided the country and will inflict damage that will last well after the battle is over, former New York Stock Exchange director and Wall Street stalwart Ken Langone said.
While he believes a debt deal will get done and in fact favors a plan closer to what the Democrats are proposing, Langone told CNBC that Obama’s behavior has been “unpresidential.”
“He is dividing us as a nation,” Langone said. “He’s not bringing us together. He’s willfully dividing us. He’s petulant.”
The co-founder of Home Depot sharply criticized the president for promoting class warfare through his repeated attacks against “fat cat” business executives and his targeting of tax loopholes.
In sum, the behavior is symptomatic of Obama’s disrespect for the office he holds, Langone said.
“Ronald Reagan would never go into the Oval Office without his jacket on—that’s how much he revered the presidency,” he said. “This guy worked like hell to be president…Behave like a president. Let me look at you as a model to how we should behave. What does he say? Fat cats, jet airplanes. What is the purpose? Us versus them.
“The thing I fear the most about the future of America is…divide us, we all lose. This has got to stop.”
It will stop in 2012.
Or we do lose.
