How Not To Amuse Business Executives

Updated on December 18, 2013

Now most of us, who have had to deal with progressive liberals, realize how they like to change the subject rather than discuss the subject at hand. They do like those shiny objects and baubles of distraction. there are some rather famous subject shape shifters right here on this forum and maybe they'll pay us a visit this time around too.

So I ran across this account of a meeting Obama just has with the world's leading executives, techie types and gurus and wasn't really astonished at the way Obama conducted his usually unprofessional self since he has zero, and I mean zero, business acumen that a chief executive officer should have.

The real subject of the meeting was their concern about how they have suddenly become a middleman in the NSA's dragnet of information collection. That's a sticky wicket for them as business concerns which centers around public trust, another subject Obama knows little about.

The Adoration Is Wearing Thin...

Obama still has a small group of adoring sheeple but his flock is dwindling rapidly. When you summon people like Apple's CEO, Eric Schmidt of Google, Yahoo's Marissa Mayer and assorted high dollar type executives from AT&T, Microsoft, Twitter and Facebook among others one would think Obama would know to hold the conversation to the subject they were called to a meeting about.So the industry giants of Techieville sat down to talk about a rather serious subject that they concerned them. That would be to reform the government's heavy handedness of the NSA in data collection of average Americans. It seems that this administration is intent on tarnishing that sector of American business and making the public a little bit leery of industry, not to mention Big Brother himself. Obama has already toasted his image so they want some form of salvation.

Prior to the Pow-Wow there was a letter sent from the group to the Whine House critical of the federal government snuffing out individual rights many of us see as our inalienable rights under the US Constitution. Easy concept to understand if you understand what the role of the federal government was intended to be rather than what we have seen it grow into being.

The letter specifically pointed out the obvious, “The balance in many countries has tipped too far in favor of the state and away from the rights of the individual – rights that are enshrined in our Constitution."

So during that fateful meeting where the gurus were there to talk about the NSA and that quagmire, Obama wanted to devote equal time to Obamacare and that quagmire. He basically hijacked the intended purpose of the meeting in those executive's minds and it did irritate them to say the least. Why were they there? They sure weren't there to discuss the health care debacle that Obama created for himself. Their intersecting point was discussing the federal government, the misuse of technology and the private sector.

Hearing Obama's desperate public relations pitch to anyone who will listen wasn't their concern. They will get to that intersection when Obama's unilateral delay of the employer mandate expires and they start dumping employees into the exchanges, if they even exist at that time. In layman's terms they weren't there to solve Obama's internal screw up concerning his signature piece of legislative crapola.

But Doctor Obama stayed hard at work with verbal reassurances that his website was just hunky dory and on the smooth path of recovering from the initial disaster we all witnessed. According to him before long it would become fully functional. He must have appeared to be the babbling idiot in the room of technical experts and chief executives.

What I just described is "how not to" conduct a business meeting. Of course Obama knows nothing about how business operates. That's out of a community organizers realm you see. The business world, the one we're discussing here, has circled the wagons against this administration's propensity to violate the 4th amendment at will. Couple that with a recent federal judge's ruling and there you go.

They should have known, and probably did, what a self-serving, incompetent Obama is before the meeting, not after it was over. His actions there were as inappropriate as some unnamed users here who just want to talk about anything but the subject at hand.

Heck go ahead and click those buttons and send this out to a wider audience.

As Always,

The Frog Prince

      I am still chuckling at the reference to the tale "The Emperor Has No Clothes". It's too close to the truth!

      One of our leader's most 'endearing' traits is his willingness and ability to circle a subject, speak a lot and not actually say anything pertinent to the subject. Quite a talent!

      In the past, the big tech companies were willing to help Bush and Obama violate the Fourth Amendment because the scope of these activities was not as well known by the public as it is today. Now it is becoming a public relations problem for these companies, and may cost them customers. Obama's deflection to the PPACA is as expected, as deflection is Obama's standard method for handling questions he doesn't want to answer. In Obama's famous interview with Brett Baier of FOX news, Obama was questioned for an entire hour, an didn't actually answer a single question. Obama just recited memorized speeches related to the topics asked about, but none of the speeches actually answered what was asked. It's impossible to pin Obama down on anything.

      As long as they took momma's advice and did not drink they cool-aid, they should be ok. Maybe a bit angry at having their time wasted, but otherwise ok.

      I suspect Obama knew he was in way over his head when he walked into the room. The only thing he knew to do was change the subject.

      the "white house" declaring in advance the focus would be on functionality of "the healthcare website" was a ploy by obama to reign in the tech executives to divert the attention on the real issue at hand. So the inappropriate business practices of obama started with this meeting before they even arrived.

      Obama doesn't participate in anything that he considers to be the job of peons. He is the big idea man. He doesn't have to execute anything. In other words he is a fraud.

      Excellent piece of writing TFP.

      It's difficult for Obama to know anything about business since, as a boy, he didn't grow up in a capitalistic society and when he did experience it, his only exposure to it was as a college student and a community organizer, and somewhere along the way he had socialist mentors and leanings. So we can't expect too much from him, and his followers are finally learning why!

      Just another one to add to the embarrassment pile for our President. I'm sure his fan club think his performance at this meeting was just wonderful, but thankfully not everyone shares their opinion.

      If the polling numbers are correct, more and more are catching onto this fake everyday. We can only hope.
