From the Detroit Free Press:
Granholm, Bonior join Obama's economic transition team
WASHINGTON -- Gov. Jennifer Granholm and former U.S. Rep. David Bonior will serve on a panel of financial luminaries and corporate experts advising President-elect Barack Obama on the nation’s hard-bitten economy, ensuring Michigan, its troubled auto industry and labor has [sic] a seat at the table.Transition to WHAT, a Third World economy? The elimination of secret ballots? Even less ability to balance a budget? An approval rating in the 30s? Doubling down on recession? $50 billion in automotive industry corporate welfare? Government seizure of 401(k)s?
The burning question, though, is which does Obama consider Granholm to be, a "financial luminary" or a "corporate expert?" Inquiring minds want to know. After all, Obama claims it is his superior judgment that qualifies him for the Presidency - it obviously can't be learning from example. He should check out Robert Owen for that.
Maybe the theory is that if Granholm disagrees with you, you are on the right track. Maybe it's a Chicom plot to reduce US consumption (counter intuitive that they would say this, I know, but talking about it encourages the Green Party and damages America). Maybe Obama is considering offering Jennifer a cabinet post and this is a trial buffoon, though like her husband, I worry about her children should that come to pass. They should not be left alone with him for periods exceeding 30 minutes.
I hope, like card check, there are no secret ballots for
