O Anti-business / Companies / Industrial Goods - 3M chief warns Obama over business regulation: "The head of one of the US’s biggest industrial groups has launched a scathing attack on Barack Obama’s attempts to repair relations with companies, dubbing him “anti-business”.

Manufacturers could shift production out of the US to Canada or Mexico as a result, warned George Buckley, chief executive and chairman of 3M.

“I judge people by their feet, not their mouth,” he told the Financial Times. “We know what his instincts are – they are Robin Hood-esque. He is anti-business.”"
How could I be more shocked? Actually, the only thing that shocks me is that headlines like this aren't a daily occurrence. That just shows you how far we have already slipped into the "crony state" and the chilling effect the corrupt GM and Chrysler "bankruptcies" have had on corporations. Nice little business you have there ... it'd be a shame should anything happen to it...
