Unfortunately I don't think he will be on the Ballot in 2012. No one with substance will be. It is already the extreme R Elitist versus the extreme L. Neither side Represents the Middle class . The legal American citizens that make America run.

With a lot of it, yes.
Especially in where these record profits should be invested.. America; not in building factories in other countries, to exploit the cheap labor .
The polls show that the American people are completely fed up with the nonsense in Washington.
Something's gotta give pretty soon.

Karven I agree with.
If you read my question above you'll see what nuttiness I dealt with today.
This women who is not stupid and runs a business thinks there is a cure for Cancer. I tried to explain the latest research.
Sadly I feel sick every time I hear Romey,Perry or any of the R speaking out about their Agenda.
I had eight years under Bush wear research was not funded.
I wish I could literally give all anti Stem Cell Research people the diseases only Stem Cell research can cure.
As long they oppose research I consider them fascist immoral people that Represent a small wealthy morally corrupt few. They are No better than the Iranian Fascist.
Unions did not destroy our Economy Bush and his Elitist friends did.
Obama unfortunately is not bright enough to fix things. Hillary would have. Under Bill our Economy thrived despite his mistakes.
By pushing an unexperienced guy on us the Demarcates hurt our country and; we will have more years of a R Wing immoral Elitist like Bush.
I wish we could have a true business man from humble beginnings. Someone like Bill who was not born wealthy.

One of the sad things is, so many are complaining about all unions, but unions have been making concessions for years, and the gains from those concessions have been going to building plants in cheap labor countries.
Labor so cheap, that even if our workers were making less than minimum wage, and cut all of their benefits, we couldn't compete.
We have to gain a competitive edge in some other way, as in new and innovative, and patented.
The idea that we can compete cost wise, just isn't possible in many, if not most cases.
Unless of course, we want to turn our work force into a third world nation, within a country comprised of the rich, and the working poor.
The slow demise of the American Dream isn't an acceptable solution.
Meeting world demand for innovative products of the best quality, and beating everyone else to the market, is.
But of course, that's not "easy money"; producing cheap junk like everyone else, in foreign countries is.

Yeah, he's saying the right things.
Let's hope that he follows through, and that it inspires others to reinvest in America as well.
Happy Friday!

We don't pick up much coffee anymore. We bought the kind that takes packets but can use ground beans too.
Yes Starbucks is over priced but this guy still makes sense.
Happy Friday.

I won't presume to know his mind, but I think we should remember that his statements are also excellent PR.
He's a business man that deals directly with the consumer.
At Starbuck's prices, they're working consumers.
He's seen the polls, so he feels the pulse of his customers, and potential customers.
The fact that he's actually opening up new locations and creating jobs in the process, is certainly a plus, even risky, but as a business man, he also knows he's strengthening his relationship with his current customers, and hoping to attract new ones.
We shouldn't forget what he does for a living; sells a fairly common product, at inflated prices, and many of his employees make little more than minimum wage.
Here's a pay scale at Starbuck's.

So, I guess he's a Knight of sorts in helping to create jobs, but his armor isn't exactly shinning.

He surprised me.
To bad he is not running.
