    This pick does not make sense, due to the fact that this CEO has been really sucking lately running his own company. yet the President want s his 'economic' opinion

    But maybe... could there be other reasons...

    Now we know why NBC and MSNBC was so hell bent on ignoring Obama's bad side. GE owns both

    GE Capital, didn't they get some of the bail out?

    And not to mention, doesn't GE make wind turbines, and solar panels. Pair that with Obama's "climate change" agenda and voila...


    It's all coming together ...... And it stinks!!!

    It's often good to have a bad example in order to know what not to do.

    My point was not just about him as a financial example.but also about the conflict of interest he would be.

    and imagine how much more news stories about Obama would be smoothed over by NBC with this turn of events. It's already bad, but it could even be worse.

    You would not imagine all the people I talk to about Issues that have no clue they exist.

    Thanks main-stream-media. You're doing your job well.

    This seems to be the kind of appointments obama likes making, there is something like this with almost all the people he has picked.
