CEOs' Anti-Obama Slams: President Compared To Hitler, Mussolini & More (PHOTOS)

At the Aspen Forum this week, Intel CEO Paul Otellini blasted the Obama administration for not understanding "what it takes to create jobs."

"I think this group does not understand what it takes to create jobs," CNET reports the CEO as saying. "And I think they're flummoxed by their experiment in Keynesian economics not working."

Otenelli's remarks thrust him into a growing crowd of chief executives who have publicly doubted or outright slammed the Obama administration's economic policies. As the midterm elections approach, this powerful interest group has ramped up its attacks on the White House. And as they compare the administration to communists or to Hitler, some of America's CEOs are starting to sound more like, well, politicians.

Speaking at the Technology Policy Institute's Aspen Forum, Otellini vented about Obama's allegedly anti-Intel economic policies. CNET collected some of the best quotes. Here are comments reported by CNET's Declan McCullagh:

The U.S. legal environment has become so hostile to business ... that there is likely to be "an inevitable erosion and shift of wealth, much like we're seeing today in Europe -- this is the bitter truth.'"

"Not long ago ... 'our research centers were without peer. No country was more attractive for start-up capital... We seemed a generation ahead of the rest of the world in information technology. That simply is no longer the case.'"

"If our tax rate approached that of the rest of the world, corporations would have an incentive to invest here."
