Does this guy even know how to change a tire?

Meet Brian Deese.

This is who President Obama has put in charge of disassembling General Motors.

He's 31 years old.

He's "a not-quite graduate of Yale Law School".

He had never visited an automobile plant until he got tapped by the Obama Administration.

Again, this is the guy that President Barack Obama has put in charge of the GM bankruptcy.

Does Mr. Deese know anything about the automotive industry? I mean, if he's gonna be overhauling one of the largest manufacturing companies in American history, he should have some real-world experience in management or engineering or something... right?

(Let me put it another way: What the HELL does Obama think he's doing?!?)

Mash down here for the rest of the story of Mr. Deese, that in a saner age would have never happened...

Do not judge, or you too will be judged.
for in the same way you judge others, you will be judged,
and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?

Why fear the judgement of others?

If no one has the guts to judge other people (that are presumably bad), where the hell would this world be?
If all of us would be thinking like "oh no I am not judging that fool because then he'll judge me", then there would be no world economic, no businesses, no schools and no Ameican Idol competitions!

Being the best matters. When you're the best - no one will judge you. But when you are a "not-quite graduate of Yale Law School", you could expect to be judged.

A mugger does not require an engineering or accounting degree to commit a crime. That would be silly.

If I, a taxpayer, now own 60% of G-M, I should be able to demand a representative of my choice on the board of the company . . . but I can't. Someone else is doing that for me, and will eventually vote to sell my stake in the company for a loss so that someone employed there can have a pension and healthcare for life.

Strange world we live in . . . .

Let's cut him a little slack. Not everyone can paint toy soldiers and become an internationally-infamous political candidate at such a tender age. The bar is set pretty high in here.

He's a political hack. Chris look at his resume, this guy is life long Democratic operative. That's how he got this "job".

He gets bonus points from me for being a fellow Bostonian. :)

I'll be the first to admit that I don't know anything about the car industry. That's why I would never accept this job if it were offered me.

There are much wiser and more knowledgeable people about such things, who I would feel better about managing this... considering that it's our tax money that's going to be going into it.

Unless the kid has already earned a few billion dollars on his own and honestly, then anyone has the right to ask where does he have the wisdom to handle a bankruptcy that's going to run a good chunk of a trillion dollars when all's said and done.
