  • “It’s not about companies anyway; we’re talking about shareholders.”

    that sums it up right there! shareholders do not care where the company is running or who it employs. Shareholders only care about bottom line profits. Obama needs to understand that execs are not going to play his silly games or take his crap. They'll pack up and move where it is cheaper. Obama is NOT HELPING ANYONE!!!!

  • Don't expect liberals to respond. They stick to the tabloid posts about race, public assistance, and Antichrist. Thinking they don't know who they voted for.

  • I thought Bill Gates was all up in Obama's sh#t. Why would he support Obama if his business would have to make such drastic changes? Or am I just wrong about the Gates thing? I really don't know.

  • Microsoft might move some employees off shore..out of the country...to save money . Not move the whole company.........did anyone read the article? Microsoft is trying to increase profits by avoiding paying taxes on Foreign profit. Read it. Its just complicated and nobody needs to jump to the conclusion that Obama is ruining anything.
