What have business leaders done for America lately?
Say, since about the time they "persuaded" Congress to repeal the Glass-Steagal Act or since they persuaded the Supreme Court to pass the Citizens United ruling?
Or since they crashed Wall Street with their clever financing and almost destroyed the banking system of America, if not for George W Bush and Barack Obama bailing them out, with the assistance of the Fed?
Or since last year, when they created more jobs overseas than they created in America?
Or since they have kept almost all the profits from all the productivity since 1978 and gave very little to the workers that produced the profits?
Or since they have decided to buy their own politicians to get their low tax rates as the country declines before our eyes?
Now, we are asked to put a CEO into the White House, because he knows how to "create jobs". When, in fact, he has more experience at destroying jobs than creating them.
Can you name a few positive things that business leaders have done for America in the last dozen years??

8. Stacked billions and billions - paying no taxes on it.
It's no wonder the cons are jumping ship - they're as pissed about the economy as we are and their projected nominee is someone who could quite possibly be the blandest business man alive - and somehow he's poised to do a better job of fixing the economy than Obama has? Fuck this.
