There are a lot of entities that I wish would keep there noses out of politics, do you have the same position on all successful business people who voice their opinion . . .

Yes. These people were not put in positions of authority over shareholder-owned assets so that they could use the platform to disseminate political views with which shareholders may not agree, and when doing so may hurt the company.

I will also say that the ceos who tend to do this sort of thing are generally on the left. In any event I disagree with it across the board.

Of course a privately held firm is a different matter. That person is risking his own net worth and that of people close to him. I think it's possibly stll bad business, but it is vastly different from the leader of a public company doing it.
