The Dillard Doctrine

Urban Conservative Commentary on Politics & Life

Nationalization without Deliberation

Yesterday, the CEO of General Motors stepped down, at the request of the Obama Administration.
 
Ever think you’d live to see something like that as a headline in the US? That’s more reminiscent of Russia during its communist days. Or maybe China. Or Venezuela.
 
This is concerning, for a couple of reasons:
 
1. The White House apparently now has the power to hire/fire in the business world. Talk about your imperial presidency. Granted, it’s just GM-who could use a good housecleaning-but that should come at the behest of their board of directors or their shareholders-NOT the federal government.
 
2. If the Obama Administration-and I smell Rahm all over this, because I don’t think Pres. Obama’s got the…um, stones…for this kind of action-decides it can make business decisions to force change, what happens if/when those decisions start to take on a political undertone? Like, say, those fired end up being replaced by some of the larger Obama donors/supporters (as process also known as cronyism)?
 
Remember the uproar over the last president who supposedly pulled that stunt?
