Washington — Federal regulators have delayed the proposed merger of Duke Energy and Progress Energy late Wednesday, setting back into plans to merge the two North Carolina-based utilities by the end of the year.
How many corporate deals has this man’s administration destroyed?
Off the top of my head:
- Duke-Progress merge
- AT&T – TMobile merge
That’s just 5. Right here with little or no thought.
I often tell people that America and being “American” is more of an ideal than a real descriptor of one’s nationality. For example, if you say he is a “Japanese” you will know that he is a man born and raised in Japan. His heritage is Japanese. Same for a German or a Mexican.
But when you say he is an American you can not assume him to have been born in America. Nor can you assume race or historical nationality. Rather, American means that quality that embraces the pioneer, the risk taker the lover of freedoms and Liberty. It is an ideal of hard work results in hard rewards. Of all the nationalities that one could be, American conjures the bootstrap.
Obama is not American in that sense. And in that way and measure, when he says he is going to fundamentally transform America, I believe him.
