Leadership: A business icon has ripped the administration's "divide and conquer" strategy, the president's refusal to take responsibility for his policies and for an enemies list that would make a disgraced ex-president proud.
We now have the Obama Principle. It's like the Peter Principle, in which people rise to the level of their incompetence, except as redefined by this administration you refuse to recognize your incompetence and constantly blame others when things go wrong.
Jack Welch, renowned former CEO of General Electric before it became the nontaxpaying sock puppet for the administration's green energy push, has penned an Op-Ed article for Reuters in which he says Obama's "divide-and-conquer" re-election strategy is unworthy of a great leader and chides the president for blaming others for our economic woes.
"Over the past three years," Welch wrote last Wednesday, "Obama has taken a sort of divide-and-conquer approach, amassing a list of enemies that would make Richard Nixon proud bankers, health care insurance providers, oil companies, wealthy taxpayers, Congress and, most recently, the Supreme Court.
"Gas prices are the fault of oil speculators. The failure of solar power companies is the fault of unfair Chinese competition. The bad economy is one of the many things he inherited, as is the deficit. Operation Fast and Furious was a program begun under the Bush administration that he knew nothing about. The deficit is skyrocketing because the rich aren't paying their 'fair share.'"

and what about that little femme that took your spot at GE?
Right on Jack.
Obama incompetence ping
...and the list goes on. Great article!
Jack Welch and his board developed and nurtured the beast that is NBC/MSNBC.
I can’t accept his hypocrisy
Good for Jack Welch. He’s got it. He’s right on the mark.
...and conservative Americans, and more and more, Americans in general. Never been a big fan of GE or Neutron Jack, but keep speaking out like this and I may have to reconsider.
Kill Whitey...he done me wrong!
Make that the “Oblame-a Principle”
Of course it it.
But then, by absolutely no stretch of the imagination could Øbama be considered to even faintly resemble "a great leader".
Heard this on radio the other day, got me fired up.
Now that is just not fair.
When judging leaders one has to consider who is being led and what their goals are.
I see Obama as a leader of looters and their goal is to redistribute as much of Americas wealth and give it to the followers of the One.
On those bases I think Obama could be considered a great leader.
No president in the past has so successfully raped the treasury of the United States to enrich his followers anyone must admit.
JW may be right on this point...but he’s still,as ever, a self-serving A$$.
Nope, The Won is not a leader, not by any stretch of the imagination.
He’s a figurehead, a puppet, a Marionette dancing on the strings of the barbarians at the other end of his Blackberry.
Good for Welch!
I would only hope that Immelt had a set of testicles to say the same thing!
Yes, we need more of this rational, principled talk from the giants of American industry!!!
Actually, we need more giants in American Industry!!!
