Sean Hannity invited former Governor, and Romney adviser, John Sununu and Fox News contributor, Juan Williams to discuss President Obama's not so helpfully phrased comments on businessmen not building their businesses by themselves. Sununu, if you politicos will recall, was the same douchebag who called Obama a "socialist stoner who needs to learn how to be an American."

While showing slightly more tact during this discussion, Sununu nevertheless continued to slam Obama for doing things like raising taxes, lambasting those that were successful, and just showing absolute contempt for capitalism (and by extension, America) as a whole.

Of course, none of that was particularly newsworthy. But he did say something that I thought was worth mentioning in the following exchange regarding the rich in this country having it really tough cause of that mean ole Obama (Skip to 9:38)

Williams: I see the rich fleeing America! The rich are fleeing by the minute! We've gotta stop it. Oh come on.

Sununu: They are! Canada had more Americans except for one year, more Americans look for permits to move into Canada to do business.

The Romney campaign REALLY needs someone better representing them than this dude. He's not only offensive, but he's pretty dumb too. Though I suppose, it's not like the likes of Eric Fernshtrom are doing Romney any favors either (he's the guy who made the etch-e-sketch comment).

The rich are leaving America in droves when you consider how few "truly rich" there are. They are also leaving high tax states like California and New York. Ask yourself "why?" Why do states like Texas and Florida gain residents while states like Cali and NY lose them? What are the common denominators there?

Another denominator to throw in the mix, is the unemployment of those states that are losing the 'rich'. The rich are the employers, why is that so hard for everyone to understand?

John Sununu has been saying a lot of off the wall weird stuff lately.

This doesn't make sense either.

They are not just moving to Texas and Florida. They are moving to Wisconsin , Colorado , Washington , Maine , Nevada.

Why ? Cost of living is high , but wages are low. These other states have low cost of living to match the low wages.

They are not necessarily better. They are just more affordable. I know this from my own personal experience as I am one of those Americans who moved from California.

So why are they also moving to Canadialand as Sununu said?

Agreed. Has anyone ever gotten hired by a poor person?

Yeah, I left Virginia years ago because they taxed like the north but paid like the south. In Florida, the pay matches Virginia but the cost of living, especially taxes and local fees, is much cheaper.

If you moved up here you'd only like winter for a little while. We get 2 warm months out of the whole year. July and Aug. That's it. The rest is cold. That's why were all wearing shorts and t shirts in las vegas and arizona in Jan. To us that's the same tempurature as our summers.

The reaon many rich may be moving to Canada is consitancy and stability.

It may not be better in Canada, but you know what to expect.

That one point is why businesses are not hiring. That one point is why businesses are not expanding. That one point is why people like me are pulling their money out of investments.

Business owners do not know what to expecct from Obama.

Remember, the Obamacare package... is has passed and validated by the Supreme Court... and it is still being written today. Do we know a finalization of what is really in there...NO.

How about punitive taxes? Obama is still beating up on the businesses and tax rates for the $250,000 income level are going up.

The problem is that small businesses and what they make push the small business owner into that bracket... it doesn't leave room to point out the actual net income vs gross income...

Heck, my wife and I are not rich, but we do Ok and although things have been tight as of late, we have always lived tight... so the difference is negligable. But even we have been doing research of moving to a few South American and Central American countries where there are large ex-patriot communities and a proven stable political and economic enviroment.

One key element a business owner needs is stability... knowing what to expect next year and the year after that. because so much of what a business does is based on projections and growth... to a giant business $10,000 is a drop in the bucket... to a small busines, it is the difference between opening next month or closing.

If I have, as a small business owner, $40,000 to spend and invest in my business for next year...Jan 2013... do I want to buy a couple of used pick up service trucks... some new equipment... promote two of the best workers I have and hire new crews under them and expand my business? This could double or even triple my service area, business area, get me into a few new service areas. Orders from me go up for new equipment, new fixtures and accessories to service my customers and expanded customer base... plus all those new crews will be eating out at lunch time... and the maintainnce on my trucks will add new business to the garage down the street.

Or... because i don't know if I will be taxed more and have to pay penalties for Obamacare... and then to add on to my shop I have to deal with EPA because there is a stream behind me in the ravine... plus all those oils from servicing my customer... and then will i have to pay for all those new crews healthcare or will the government cover them... as a small business i only offer minimal coverage at high rates...and if my sales and profits go up... it will push me for sure into the $250,000 dolar bracket... even though i only made $40,000 last year... the bulk went back into the business..

So... I decide to wait and see what will happen... give the 2 crews I already have overtime... do not hire anyone else... make the 1992 ford service trucks run one more year... lease a used storage container unit and park it beside my present shop for any extra needs... run a drop cord out to it... hidden of course... no permits and it works fine... The garage down the street does not get any extra business... the auto dealership does not sell me two of the six service trucks he has in his inventory... the crews I do not hire do not eat out at lunch...infact the 6 men I would have hired are still unemployed and instead of making money, spending money, and paying taxes... they stay on unemployment...getting food stamps, and the system is drained even further instead of money going into the system.

That is why people are moving out of California... and NY... and into Canada and Texas and Costa Rico and Brazil.

Socialist policies, why shouldn't you have some socialist obligations, free health care, free education, free energy, free water.

America is a resource rich country, why shouldn't those resources be used to benefit Americans.

Nah, you'd sooner have a strong military

Nah, I'd rather have the government stay out of my life. NOTHING IS EVER FREE when you get it from the "government". If you believe it is, you are lying to yourself.
