The President As GM CEO

by Pejman Yousefzadeh on March 30, 2009

It’s so fascinating to see that Barack Obama feels he is qualified to run an automobile company. I have made it a habit to say that he is not the Messiah, and that rather, he is just another politician. But apparently, I have things wrong. Barack Obama is a tycoon and we just didn’t know it!

If there is a silver lining to this story, it is that it will give the heads of other companies a glimpse of what might await them if they invite government to poke its nose inside their tents. In the meantime, we will have to put up with the absurd conceit that the 44th President of the United States and his acolytes somehow have the talent and experience necessary to run a car company, despite the glaring omission of any car company management experience on their resumes.

Just when you think that things could not possibly get any more absurd . . .
