How will Obama hurt big business when he's supported by the media?
Disney owns ABC Viacom owns CBS General Electric owns NBC Time Warner owns CNN The evil, greedy businessmen control the media, and they can control the election. (Especially if one man owns stock in them all) And it is clearly evident all their CEOs will be voting Obama, the candidate who is "fighting for the middle class". So, my main question is, can you stop and think hard before you vote? And remember, Herbert Hoover was a Democrat, and he raised taxes during the Depression. Sorry, thought FDR was a republican.

Entertainment businesses do better when there is an economic downturn. People without jobs have the time to watch movies and television. (Commercial ad rates are based on the number of viewers)

He will hurt all of us. The recession Hoover faced would have run a natural cycle had he not raised taxes thus taking money out of the economy and prolonging the depression..

So is this the "liberal media" you are describing? Hoover: A Republican, not a Democrat.

First, Hoover was a Republican. Second, the media is one business out of millions. Third, you don't seem to have a point.

Herbert Hoover was a Republican. In any case, Obama is not "supported" by the media. I'm not sure what your point is but it is true that the corporate media looks out for its own interests and those of its corporate advertisers. The CEOs are usually Republicans.

He will raise taxes and it will effect everyone. All Democrats want to take more of our hard earned money. I don't see why people would want that at all it's not fair to the hard working man.

Don't worry about big business.... 95% of all businesses - that's over 25,000,000 businesses have less than 100 employees and that's where the bulk of the taxes come from... but if you listen to the media and democrats, you'd think it's all about big business and it's not. If it's wasn't for all these small businesses... More
