Here is the quote of the day from President Barack Obama, posted by Charlie Spiering of

“Other than -maybe- the CEO of Boeing, I don’t know anyone who’s done more to sell Boeing planes around the world than me.” – President Obama

While Obama is the first to speak out against big business and the “1 percent,” the truth is, progressive policies help them the most. The bigger the government, the more opportunities for companies like Boeing to collude with it and lobby for special deals.

If the President is the #2 salesman for Boeing behind the company’s CEO, who would be #3?

Perhaps it would be former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor. Boeing’s stock actually dropped in value after Cantor lost his re-election in 2014.
