‘We’re Under Attack’: Gibson Guitar CEO Was Not Too Impressed With ‘Big Liberal’ Obama’s Jobs Speech

“He is using the levers of government to not only redistribute, but to penalize.”

The Blaze has been following the ordeal at Gibson Guitar this month.

For our detailed post from a week here.

Amid the uproar over the company's importation practices, CEO Henry Juszkiewicz was invited to attend Obama's Thursday night speech as the guest of Tennessee Rep. Marsha Blackburn. Afterward he talked to National Review Online.  He didn't seem to be too impressed!

Henry Juszkiewicz, the chief executive officer of Gibson Guitar Corp., tells National Review Online that President Obama, a “big liberal,” has done “untold damage to business” and should not be applauded for his jobs speech. ”He’s a government fan,” he says. “He has a problem with successful businesses. He thinks they’re the problem, that they shouldn’t be quite as successful.”

“He is using the levers of government to not only redistribute, but to penalize,” he adds. “I see a difference between what he said and what he’s doing.”

And here's Glenn Beck's recent radio interview with Juszkiewicz:
