One Philly CEO defends Obama

Mark Walsh, onetime head of Philadelphia moonshot VerticalNet, current boss of online admaker, tells LinkedIn contacts he's "Headed off to be on Larry Kudlow's (CNBC) show tonight to defend President Obama from being (called) the 'Anti Business' president." 

Walsh writes that he's "convinced that if a Republican president had cut taxes to 97% of America, made money on GM bailout, and given Small Business incentives, he would have been hailed as a hero..."

Walsh has done this before. He's also an ex-boss of the failed liberal radio network Air America, and was a minority Democrat in the mostly Republican investor group that owned the Inquirer 2007-09.
