GE in bed with Obama

YEA!! Let's put the CEO ofa failing company as ad economic advisor to fix the problem.

Makes sense.......

http://www.glennbeck.com/content/art...cle/198/21159/

GLENN: We are crossing into new territory now where government and business are blending into one and that bothers me. It tell you something.


Listen to me. Our founding fathers would be going crazy. They would be printing up leaflets everywhere right now. They would be going crazy. And every single person that is -- that, you know, these people who were against big business, all these people that were, you know, antibusiness, where are you now? Because business is becoming -- and I'm not antibusiness. I love business. Not this. You take my favorite company, you take Fox News. If Fox News merged with the United States, I ain't supporting it. I ain't working there. No way. You don't merge companies with government. Only bad things happen on that.


So now where are these people? Where are the people like Keith Olbermann that would stand up and say, "Wait a minute, guys, we were against, you know, Raytheon, we were against Halliburton" because of all the buddies of Halliburton.


I've got good news and I've got bad news on GE. The GE thing, here they are, they are merging government and business with GE. They've got -- GE, I'm telling you, is going to be bailed out. GE will get all kinds of contracts from the government on green energy and everything else. The CEO of GE has now been appointed, today he's just been appointed as an economic advisor for Barack Obama. That's amazing. The guy who -- the guy who would not -- shareholders are like, "Can we sell NBC? This is really not good." They're like, nope, nope, nope, nope, nope, nope. The guy who put MSNBC and put him into the left category, to the point to where Tim Russert said you're destroying our credibility, this guy is, he's down with Keith Olbermann and everything else. You've been asking why for a very long time, yada, yada, yada. Well, now you know. This guy doesn't need the largest lobbying arm in America. He doesn't need that anymore. He's got the president's ear. "Oh, we've got that green week thing. Don't worry. We're doing another green week. We'll help you on that. These people are just stupid. You're exactly right, we'll help you, President Obama and Al Gore, we'll help you convince everybody. We got another Green Week coming up, and we'll do some more green stories and global warming stories, you know, on the news with Brian Williams.


Brian Williams should be shaking in his boots. Now, here's the good side. GE, Stu, have they taken money yet? Weren't they made into -- weren't they given that loophole like American Express was so they can be a bank? GE, GE Finance or GE Capital, didn't they take some money?


STU: I think they did.


GLENN: I think they did, too.


STU: I know if they get another round they would, I would assume, be --


GLENN: So Jeffrey Immelt would not be able to have those big fat cat salaries?


STU: Right, he would be cut to 500,000.


GLENN: My question is would Keith Olbermann be allowed to have a $7 million salary? Because he's with the people, you know.


STU: Right.


GLENN: He's for the little guy. He's the guy who is, he's in there fighting for you against all of these fat cats that are making so much money. Remember, I never have a problem with people making money. I want you to be as rich as you possibly can. God bless America (singing). Keith Olbermann, now, that's a different story. If GE takes money from the government, will they insist that Keith Olbermann does not make $7 million a year? Just wondering. I'm just wondering if Keith Olbermann would say, "You know what, I'm taking taxpayers' money. This is what socialism is all about, shared sacrifice. I'm just wondering." Yeah?


STU: Wouldn't, because he -- what is the wording on this, the way the bailout thing is worded, either a senior or a top executive, correct?


GLENN: Uh-huh.


STU: I mean, clearly --


GLENN: Brian Williams is a senior executive. He is -- if I'm not mistaken, he is the editor in chief or the senior producer or whatever it is for the NBC nightly news.


STU: Because I mean, I don't know his exact title and I think this has nothing to do with really your position. Certainly you can't pay a janitor $7 million because they are a janitor. But beyond that, he has bragged on the air forever. He's the one that picked Rachel Maddow. He's the one that got Imus fired. He's the guy. He brags about it all the time.


GLENN: Well, he is clearly a senior advisor to MSNBC.


STU: I want him to make $500,000 so bad.


GLENN: Oh, wouldn't it be great?


STU: You know he -- I mean, I don't watch his show --


GLENN: I think we should campaign for him.


STU: He had to have been supporting the CEO cuts. There's no way he didn't.


GLENN: Stu, Stu, may I give you weekend homework that will make you happy?


STU: Yes, you can.


GLENN: Will you go through all of the tapes that you can get your hands on of anything that Keith Olbermann has said about how these scumbags need to make only $500,000 a year.


STU: Sure, no problem.


GLENN: Bring it to the show on Monday, will you?

Wonder if nukes was all that Bama talked about with Russia? Maybe he's getting some pointers on how to "change" the US?
