All those guys who knew "everything" about cars did so well.

BTW - most CEOs of corporations didn't work their way up from the manufacturing lines.

But they DO know about the product they're selling. And Henry Ford was a perfect example of someone who knew "cars", as is Roger Penske, neither of whom were appointed by some narcissistic boob who can't talk w/o a teleprompter

Wow Henery Ford? You had to go back aways for that one didn't you.

The Germans who bought Crysler knew alot about cars, how'd that work out for them.

As for the whole “can’t talk with out a teleprompter” mythology the wings nuts keep pushing, I just don’t see it. He cleaned McCain’s clock in the debates, went head to head against other great orators like Edwards and Clinton in the primaries and has had nearly as many press conferences in his first 4 months is Bush had in his last 4 years in office.

I was just asking myself which narcissistic boob you were referring to, then SensorG helped me out.

From SensorG: He cleaned McCain’s clock in the debates, went head to head against other great orators like Edwards and Clinton in the primaries

Sure, The Anointed One went head to head with darn near anyone and everyone. Anyone who was white, that is. None of the opponents, including Queen Hitlery, dared to criticize The Anointed One because if they did, they would be labeled a racist.

This is not to say that The Anointed One is dumb or ignorant. He's neither of those things. He just doesn't value freedom over governmental control, prosperity over governmental control, personal privacy over governmental control... want me to keep going?

The Anointed One and Nikita Khrushchev would have made a great team. Both believed in the sovereignty of government and both were devious in their own special way. I think Khrushchev was just a little better at foreign relations though.

If the management of GM knew what they were selling, the Cadillac pickup truck wouldn't exist.

What do you mean you don't want to have a cubic yard of mulch dumped in the back of your $50K Cadillac pick up?

"The Germans who bought Crysler knew alot about cars, how'd that work out for them."

Worked pretty good for them, pretty bad for Chrysler.
The damn germans raped Chrysler and then dumped it.
Before they took over Chrysler was the hottest of the big three, coming off of at least 13 consecutive profitable quarters.
Chrysler had somewhere around 8 billion in cash on hand, they burned through that in a heartbeat. The last year Chrysler was in control workers got profit sharing checks that grossed an average of $8000.00 . The next year, with Daimler in charge it was around $300, and that was the last of it.

And you know a lot about teleprompter reading boobs.

Is there anything they can't do?
