Kucinich to Immelt: Resign

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- General Electric chief Jeffrey Immelt should resign from his position as head of the President's Council on Jobs and Competitiveness because many of his company's goals conflict with the council's goal of boosting U.S. employment and economic output, Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) argued Wednesday in a little-noticed press release.
"If he does not resign, the White House should remove him," Kucinich said in the statement.
Kucinich's statements came in response to a story in the Washington Post describing General Electric's transfer of sophisticated aviation technologies it has developed to a Chinese joint venture.
"American taxpayers subsidized the development of this advanced technology, but U.S. taxpayers' investment will end up creating jobs in China. In the short term, GE is selling products to the Chinese, which will help GE's bottom line. In the long term, the Chinese will end up manufacturing and selling products using the same technologies that were made in America," read the statement from Kucinich, a seven-term congressman who has run for President in the past, and who is known for taking positions that are well outside the politicial mainstream.

Shouldn’t the headline be “Kucinich Right for First Time Ever” - or something like that?
Never thought I’d be saying this:
“Kucinich is right.”
(Doubt it’ll happen again.)
You know you’ve screwed the pooch when Kucinich is after your rear end. BUT....Obama is very pleased though...if he is getting under the skin of socialists like Kucinich, his plan is working.
eat tail, libs
Do any of Kucinich's press releases get noticed?
Kookcinich knows that socialism is sold better by the drop.
Obama has went “whole hog” and now the backlash has compromised the goal.
First thing I’ve ever seen Kucinich say with which I agree!
Second thing for me. He was against Libya without Congressional action.
Kucinich is right on the money with this one.
The broken clock syndrome.
Gee, the first time I ever agreed with The Mistake on the Lake.
Kucinich is correct.
I think this may be the tird or fourth time.
I’ll give Kuchinich credit for at least being honest about what he is even though I agree with very little of what he believes.
You never need to use words like “...in name only” with him.
Sarah Palin and Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio)agree on crony capitalism. What a day...
WAKE UP PEOPLE! The Rats, termites, and snakes have already infested the Capitol, and are actively destroying the Constitution.
While your characterization of Kucinich is right on target, his analysis of Immelt and GE policies is also right on target.
Immelt is one of those “screw the future - let’s profit today” types of managers - i.e. less than worthless.
