Barack Obama’s going to Vegas. If this had been Rick Wagoner, there would have been Hell to pay.
(Given that the President of the United States has decided to involve himself heavily and substantially in the automobile business, I have no problem making the comparison between him and Rick Wagoner. I also have no problem stating that he ought not to gallivant around in private jets when the nation’s finances are in such a parlous state. That was, after all, the standard used to launch populist attacks on business in general and CEOs in particular, no?)
