RALEIGH, N.C., Oct. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- With the 2008 elections far behind us, hot-button issues like the sagging economy and high jobless numbers are giving the public a clearer idea of the leadership style of this President. "If Barack Obama were CEO of a major U.S. corporation today, he'd be fired by now," said Stephen Xavier.
A recent Fox News Poll indicated that's what American voters think as well, notes Stephen Xavier, an Executive Coach, Republican Campaign Consultant and Conservative Blogger (http://www.americastopcoach.com, http://www.lifeontheright.com). Xavier's list of corporate clients includes the leaders of numerous Fortune 500 companies.
"Obama's polling numbers are abysmal by any measure. In a recent Fox Poll American voters indicated, by a 52-38 percent margin, that Obama's policies and leadership style are a failure," said Xavier.
Xavier points out that the recent news from tech giant HP validates this point: "HP's last CEO, Leo Apotheker, lasted 11 months on the job. His dismissal as HP CEO is how things are done in the 'real world' where results matter. Three consecutive quarters of poor results got him booted out. Obama's had three years with only worsening results and people are tiring of it. Shareholders want ROI; voters want jobs and a stable economy. It's that simple."
"And now, with Obama's recent empathy for the Occupy Wall Street protests, his new role as 'Protester In Chief' shows further lack of leadership and professionalism," Xavier affirms. "Could you imagine the CEO of a major U.S. corporation, in the heat of a union strike, let's say, making statements to support union action that is shutting down his own company? It's absurd!"
Xavier further asserts, "In the '08 election many voters and pundits expressed concern over Obama's lack of experience in having 'never managed anything' besides a 'community organization' and now, those chickens have come home to roost. His lack of experience is apparent and the White House is not the place for on-the-job-training or, from a 60's model of 'take-it-to-the-streets' leadership for change."
Xavier cites the way Obama caught and held the nation's attention with his charisma and charm and message of "change and hope" during his campaign. "'Coyote Ugly' might now better characterize voters' sentiment towards Obama," said Xavier, referring to the "morning after" shock of a bad date we are stuck with after a night out with too much to drink. "Voters now will do almost anything to get out of that bed and run for the hills. The Kool-Aid has worn off - reality has set in."
Xavier expresses hope that the last three years should have taught us something about the need for experience at the helm of the world's most powerful nation. The remaining Presidential GOP debates and those candidates' reactions to the crisis at hand will show "CEO style" - and ultimately will resonate with the public in the voting booth.
