You should try reading the article you linked rather than trying to tie it to Obama's 2008 campaign slogan because the article has nothing to do with Obama and looks at a big picture of business growth in this country, including encouraging immigration because immigrants are more likely to start businesses than Americans.

Or you know, corporations now provide 99% of all the services and goods Americans need versus small companies. Barrier of entry in a lot of markets is too high to be really succesful. Best you can do as a small business is try to ride a bigger company, like E-bay or Amazon if you sell items.

I saw this same thing being reported elsewhere, but it's like beating a dead horse at this point.

The only people who think Obama's laws, regs and policies are resulting a recovery and creating jobs are his blind partisans, and sycophantic flag waivers.

U.S. businesses are being destroyed faster than they’re being created

The American economy is less entrepreneurial now than at any point in the last three decades. That's the conclusion of a new study out from the Brookings Institution, which looks at the rates of new business creation and destruction since 1978.

Our laws and regulations are making it increasing more difficult for small companies to compete, only large corporations with deep pockets can afford to absorb these new costs of doing business. In fact, many times it's big corporations lobbying for costly and burdensome regulations, because they drive out the little guys, leaving them with a bigger piece of the pie.

Clearly you didn't read the article. This is the first time this has happend in THIRTY years. Obama is the President NOW. If anybody can't see the correlation between the two either has an agenda or not to bright. Liberal policies are killing entrepreneurship.

This only works when the president is a Repub. Let's go back 5+ years and blame Bush instead. That's it!
