Also, considering that America is the UK's biggest non EU trading partner, any person with a brain would take their opinion into account.

Yes, I've noted he was careful with his tone. That can't obscure the fact that he came to this country to aid one particular campaign in a national ballot; not just to tell us about the American interest and likely response, but to tell us what our own interests require.
I don't think the IMF (an international organisation) or CEOs (private citizens) are fairly analogous to the leader of an allied country.
2) well if you want to discount the views of the Imf and the successful CEOs what about the Chinese president or Indian pm chiming abt Brexit?
Tell you what when people can't refute someone's down right sensible response/all they can do is create a frenzy.

Wonder what the leavers have to say about this. Probably the usual rambling about sovereignty, jihadis and immigrants taking our jobs.
It seems, as most people said on this thread, that Obama was just doing a favour to Cameron and never meant to put the UK "back in the queue". The USA will even try to rapidly pass a free trade deal with the UK now that it will leave the EU, whilst TTIP negotiations are put on hold.
Who was right?
