I just spent the last 17 minutes on The Blaze watching an amazing interview in which Ken Langone, co -founder of Home Depot, blasted Obama. It was, as they say, “a thing of beauty”.
US Another Home Depot Co-Founder Blasts Obama: ‘Unpresidential’ & ‘Willfully Dividing Us’
On Thursday, Ken Langone, the former director of the New York Stock Exchange and the co-founder of Home Depot, joined former colleague Bernie Marcus in criticizing President Barack Obama’s job performance. In an interview with CNBC, the successful businessman has some tough words — and warnings — for the nation’s top executive.
Aside from calling the commander-in-chief “unpresidential” and “petulant,” he accused the president of purposefully pitting Americans against one another during the nation’s ongoing debt debate. In the interview, the successful businessman said:
“He’s not bringing us together. He’s willfully dividing us. He’s petulant. Ronald Reagan would never go into the Oval Office without his jacket on — that’s how much he revered the presidency…
Divide us and we all lose. And this has got to stop. And if [Obama’s] listening, or one of his people are listening, and you can quote me exactly for what I say, he is not acting presidential, he is behaving in a way designed, in my opinion, to divide us and make us look at each other with skepticism, with suspicion.
That’s the end of America as we know it when that happens.”
Langone takes specific issue with the president’s “us versus them” mentality. He continues:
“This guy [Obama] worked like hell to be president . . . Behave like a president. Let me look at you as a model to how we should behave. What does he say? Fat cats, jet airplanes. What is the purpose? Us versus them.”
