Obama stole the CEO's out from under Boehner. Now who wins?

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-12-20/obama-splits-republican-alliance-with-ceos-favoring-tax-increase.html

 

Some 50 chief executive officers have since met with the president or his advisers, White House aides say, with many CEOs spurred by their own desire to rein in the deficit and remove the uncertainty looming over the economy. Among the visitors: Lloyd Blankfein of Goldman Sachs Group Inc., Robert Iger of Walt Disney Co. and Randall Stephenson of AT&T Inc.

The resulting support among executives for Obama’s tax stance has split the Republican business alliance, driving a wedge between CEOs urging compromise and the nation’s most prominent small-business group resisting.

  • Haven't Disney and Goldman Sachs always been in his pocket? GS will play with whomever has the ball.

    Boehner is just negotiating with himself at this point. He is ineffective and honestly at this point it looks more like Obama wants to go over the cliff instead of compromising. I think that's something he never learned to do.
