The Weekly Standard's Fred Barnes weighs the evidence on President Obama and business and delivers a verdict:
Anti-business may be too crude a label. But this we can conclude: Obama doesn't trust free markets, he prefers government over business, he thinks Americans are too concerned about money, and he has a dark view of profits. A follower of Adam Smith, he's not.
President Bush is more charitable, or at least reticent. According to the Huffington Post, "Asked during a question-and-answer session if he thought his successor's policies were 'socialist,' Bush began saying 'depends on...' then stopped and concluded, 'We'll see.'"
