Acknowledging this is truly a non-issue becuase no one really knows who Icahn is or really cares, I'm glad obama doesn't have that support. Icahn came to his wealth by Greenmailing and corporate raiding. Contrast with Obama’s most high profile endorsement from the corporate world, Warren Buffett. Icahn does not creat wealth. Greenmailing is essentially legalized extortion, and his corporate raiding is far more likely to cost people there jobs than provide any benefit for the economy at large. Buffett on the other hand provides capital for worthy companies and invests in their long term success helping the economy and people up and down the economic ladder.
