Home Depot Founder Issues "Racist" Attack On Obama Economic Policies That Are Hurting Business

AJC: Bernie Marcus unloads on Obama administration in CNBC interview

Oh brother. If you thought that the boycott against "Whole Foods" and "Target" was bad - wait until we see picket signs by progressive-fundamentalists outside of Home Depots throughout the land.

Bernie Marcus did not have any kind words for the Obama administration’s policies during a CNBC interview today.

Here’s part of CNBC’s story of the interview:

In a scathing criticism of the Obama administration, Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus told CNBC Friday that Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner should have a reality-TV show about small business to illustrate how out of touch Democrats’ policies are with the private sector.

“My solution is that you take a guy like Timothy Geithner and put him in a new reality show. It’s called ‘Timothy Geithner Does Small Business’, something like [the porn movie] ‘Debbie Does Dallas’, and it ends up the same way,” said Marcus. ”Basically, what they’re doing to small business is very similar in this case [to what ‘Debbie’ did to Dallas.]”

To play out his story, Marcus said Geithner would have to deal with the state, federal and local regulations that he contends stymie business, and then the public official may understand the challenges that small business people face.

Hyperbole aside, Marcus said the administration’s poor performance warrants the Democrats being voted out of office. He did not, however, call for Geithner to resign.
