Obama’s “When you’re president” picture spawns hashtag
“When you’re president, as opposed to the head of a private equity firm, then your job is not simply to maximize profits. Your job is to figure out how everybody in the country has a fair shot.” -Barack Obama
According to the president, making a business profitable is no rationale for the presidency. The conservative Twittersphere seems to think there’s more to the job that the president forgot to mention.
