Good Grief. Obama Puts Former SEIU Bigwig In Charge of Creating Manufacturing Jobs
What exactly does a union leader know about creating manufacturing jobs?
Honestly, just how incompetent is Barack Obama?
The radical in the White House just placed a high-level SEIU negotiator in charge of creating manufacturing jobs…
When was the last time you heard of a union official creating a manufacturing plant?
Former SEIU principal Ron Bloom becomes the Obama “Manufacturing Czar.”
Jake Tapper reported this on Sunday:
In Cincinnati tomorrow, President Obama will announce that he’s appointing Ron Bloom his Senior Counselor for Manufacturing Policy, White House sources tell ABC News.
Bloom is currently Senior Advisor to Secretary of the Treasury Tim Geithner as a member of the President’s Task Force on the Automotive Industry, named to that position in February. He will remain in that position even while he takes on his new task.
So who is Ron Bloom?
Jammie Wearing Fool has this:
The name Ron Bloom is one that we need to start paying attention to. He has a long history of being the negotiating face of unions in a suit. He is a Harvard Business School graduate who has worked for the unions beginning with SEIU for decades. The most recent union he represented was the United Steel Workers (USW) before becoming a part of the automotive team that Obama put together. You know the one that had the head Steven Rattner having to resign over some questions about his personal finances mixed in with a little fraudulent money gifts.Rattner was replaced by Ron Bloom, and voila the United Auto Workers (UAW), got a sweetheart deal backed up by the power of the federal government to try and stave off bankruptcy.
This is just further proof that Barack Obama knows nothing about economics but is an expert on radicalism.
More… This, of course, follows the news in late August that Denis M. Hughes, a New York AFL-CIO labor leader, was named to chair the Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s board of directors.
