Do you like your CEO?

Reader comment on item: Why I'm Voting for Trump

Submitted by Jeff (United States), Oct 25, 2020 at 20:00

For a lot of us who work in the private sector, Trump is a little like our CEO.

1. Do you like your CEO? Not really.
2. Want to socialize with him? Zilch.
3. Wish he were your neighbor? No.
4. What do you think of him as CEO? Well, we're getting raises again, hiring again, he started a bonus program, sure, as a CEO, I'll take him.
5. But is he empathetic? If I want empathy, I'll go to a friend. Not looking for empathy from my CEO. Meanwhile, he promised us and the shareholders double digit growth and he delivered.

People who perform well in their roles are often forgiven for a mercurial personality and a lot more. Lincoln put Grant in charge of the army. Truman put McArthur in charge of the occupation of Japan. Just like a lot of us with Trump, they said I'll take him anyway. In other words the plusses outweigh the minuses.
