GE Scumbag Jeffrey Immelt to Head Obama's Jobs Panel
WASHINGTON—President Barack Obama will announce Friday that Jeffrey Immelt, chief executive of General Electric Co., will head a new White House board aimed at finding ways to foster private-sector job growth.

The board will replace an existing panel called the President's Economic Recovery Advisory Board, led by former Federal Reserve chairman Paul Volcker.

The name of the new panel stresses competitiveness and job creation, which are expected to be themes of Mr. Obama's State of the Union Address next week. It will be called the President's Council on Jobs and Competitiveness.

Mr. Immelt also served on the previous panel. Mr. Volcker will not join the new council.

Putting a prominent chief executive atop a panel is the latest gesture by the White House toward strengthening ties to business.

bump for pinme

The march to fascism continues...

Announced the same day their earnings come out. Of course, I'm sure their stock is up over 5% because they had such a strong quarter, not because their guy is now in the White House and if they f*** up a bailout is GUARANTEED.

ohyeah

From the article:

During the 2008 campaign, Immelt, who counts former President Ronald Reagan as a “personal hero,” donated $2,300 to Obama’s Democratic primary challenger, Hillary Clinton, and $2,300 to the Republican presidential nominee, Senator John McCain of Arizona, according to the Washington-based Center for Responsive Politics.

Sounds like he was covering all his bases. That's how they work!
