President Obama had no problem speaking with dictators from other countries but finds issue with speaking directly to the ceo of BP about the Deep Water Horizon accident? Is this a fair comparison and how does his attitude make you feel?

Obama despises the wealthy and it's very apparent in the way he handles these issues. Unfortunately, most of our jobs come from the evil rich and a lesser amount from small business owners. The more we crush them, the fewer jobs we will have. The more we tax them, the faster they leave and take their jobs and money elsewhere.

I'll just wait until after the meeting between the two tomorrow. Easier to see and hear the facts as opposed to just assuming.

Here's the quotes in question and please forgive me if I mis-typed a word or two, I wrote these out as listening the videos.
Barack Obama Quote from Matt Lauer Interview:
"I have not spoken to him directly and here's the reason. Because my experience is when you talk to a guy like a bp ceo, he's going to say all the right things to me. I'm not interested in words I'm interested in action."
Question asked to then Senator Barack Obama:
“...Would you be willing to meet separately without preconditions within the first year of your administration in Washington or anywhere else with the leaders of Iran, Syria, Venezuela, Cuba, and North Korea in order to bridge the gap that divides our countries?”
His Response:
“I would and the reason is this, that the notion that somehow not talking to countries is punishment to them uh which has been the guiding diplomatic principle of this administration is ridiculous. Now Ronald Reagan and democratic presidents like J.F.K constantly spoke to Soviet Union at a time when Ronald Reagan called them an evil empire and the reason is because they understood that we may not trust them and they may pose an extraordinary danger to this country but we have the obligation to find areas where we could potentially move forward and I think that it is a disgrace that we have not spoken to them...”
