With Obama, Breaking Up Is Hard To Do
By: Guest Authors
Neil Sedakaâ€™s #1 hit song is making a billboard comeback with a lot of Obama voters today. Yes, â€œBreaking up is hard to do,â€ especially when you had such high expectations from your newfound love.
Billionaire investor Warren Buffett and Former General Electric CEO, Jack Welch are topping the financial â€œmaya copaâ€ charts of all those emotionally driven â€œObama lovers.â€
Many people fell hard for â€œcandidateâ€ Barack Obama, proving that strong emotional attraction tends to cover a multitude of character flaws, intentions and quirky habits.
â€œCandidateâ€ Barrack Obama swept quite a few financial â€œheavy hittersâ€ off their feet with his swooning oratory and lofty promises, but mostly because he wasnâ€™t George Bush.
Like an innocent young girl overlooks the tattoos, body piercing, and questionable associations of her newfound love, many seasoned investors and CEOâ€™s set aside their understanding of basic fundamental economics and fell in love with Barack Obama.
As most often happens in any whirlwind love affair, second thoughts arise as reality sinks in. You begin to see and hear things you somehow missed before. The tattoos start to look a little ominous and those â€œquestionable associationsâ€ become intimidating and down right scary. Next, you ask yourself how you got into this relationship in the first place. But your emotional attraction keeps you connected regardless of any rational concerns you now have.
It looks like Buffett and Welch are starting to have those second thoughts about their love affair with â€œPresidentâ€ Obama. But it seems that â€œcandidateâ€ Obama they fell in love with, is making breaking up hard to do.
Fortunately for America, these two guys are feeling the relationship reality in their wallets and not in their heads. They know a â€œgold diggerâ€ when they see one.
The problem is, heâ€™s just so darn cute.
