He’s going to have to work on the hair . . .

But when it comes to big, splashy firings it looks like Pres. Obama has his Trump shtick down, very publicly handing GM CEO John Wagoner his walking papers.

On Morning Joe just now, Richard Haas of the Council on Foreign Relations chillingly called the phenomenon in which presidents fire private-sector CEOs a “brave new world.”

Everyday more and more people will see the true zerobama, and realize their big mistake.

♫ Everything old is new again! ♫

The word for this old "new world" phenomenon is fascism.

Look it up.

FEAR is the reason, and other than Rush and a few others, who else is telling Bama and Company they have no power or authority to STEAL with a passionate wantonness. The Bama and Company mentality has been indoctrinated into the minds of the majority of American through the perfect vehicle called public education.

Good to see dolt Mika Brzezinski is cool with this, as long as the tyranny isn’t limited to the automakers — because that would be unfair, or something.

Hey, GE’s stock price has plunged, and it has taken over $100 billion in government loan guarantees. Maybe Obama should fire Olbermann, Matthews, Maddow & Co.

This is the reason I went out a bought a new Tahoe. I heard 2 different people, say on TV, “now that GM has taken all this money we can tell them what kind of cars to make!”. I’ll drive it till it falls apart or I can’t get parts before I drive a smart car.

A CEO coming from engineering, quality or production would have been more likely to say eff off. A finance guy...less likely. The socialization of risk socialists and the financial oligarchs have to stick it to us together. /sarcasm

At least now the trains will run on time. Or the cars will be made on time ... or whatever it is that Il Duce insists should happen.
