According to Charles Gasparino, Jeff Immelt, the far left head of Obamas jobs council, is voting for Mitt Romney. Obama named his longtime friend and supporter GE chief Jeffrey Immelt to head his economic recovery advisory panel in January 2011. Business Insider reported:
General Electric CEO Jeff Immelt, the head of President Obamas Jobs Board, plans to vote for Mitt Romney, Fox Business Charles Gasparino reports (via Bloomberg).
If true, the news would represent a major embarrassment to the Obama administration, which had elevated Immelt in their pursuit of private sector employment growth.
Gasparino has not spoken with Immelt, but said sources close to the G.E. chief said he was leaving Obamas side.
The president named Immelt the head of his panel of economic advisers in January as a replacement to Paul Volcker, the former Federal Reserve chairman.
The past two years was about moving our economy back from the brink, Obama said when announcing the appointment. Our job now is putting our economy into overdrive.
This is great. Let Immelt squirm and refute this report. He cant win either way. Its just too bad GE has kept this far left crank as CEO for so long.
I guess if he goes for Mittens..it is worse than I though
Romney has promised GE and Goldman Sachs that he’ll bring back Cap and Trade if elected. No surprise here.
Immelt is no better than the Nazi businessmen who collaborated with Hitler. GE pays $0 in taxes for Immelt being The Messiah’s stooge.
Is this for the November election or for the primary? He’s a resident of Connecticut. I don’t think Connecticut has had its primary yet.
not much difference
Really? Nazi businessmen? I don’t think so!
“Romney has promised GE and Goldman Sachs that hell bring back Cap and Trade if elected.”
Where and when did this happen?
WRONG! It would represent a major embarrassment for Mittens, as GE and Immelt are poster children for offshoring, tax-evading, "green" fraud-pimping creeps that we were planning to wrap around Obama's neck. No Republican should have anything to do with Immelt.
So says George Soros—Obama’s puppetmaster and biggest supporter.
Those that support Romney obviously haven’t heard this or don’t know Soros and Maurice Strong and their belief system, or they would choose otherwise.
Jeeze! What idiots.
Immelt is a registered voter in Shenzhen not here.
How in the hell would he get it through the congress?
I know most FReepers don't trust mittens but inventing this kind of crap is nutz.
