Manufacturing Czar

Great, now Obama thinks the manufacturing industry needs a czar. And of course he has to hire someone for the job that has never worked in a manufacturing industry, the man has worked as an investment banker.

Good God helps us now.

President Barack Obama is tapping a member of his auto industry task force to advise him on manufacturing.

Bloom was senior adviser to Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner as part of the auto industry task force since February. Bloom, a Harvard Business School graduate, previously advised the United Steelworkers union and worked as an investment banker.

And just what is this manufacturing czar going to do?

Bloom will work with the National Economic Council to lead policy development and planning for Obama's work to revitalize U.S. manufacturing, the White House said.

The way to revitalize the manufacturing industry is to let people have the money they make so they can go buy things and make sure free trade is really fair trade.

The labor secratary is telling us that the economy is stablizing, well if it's stabilizing why would they feel they have to go messing around making new policy and appointing a czar?

Meanwhile, Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, who will join Obama at the Ohio labor event, said Monday she sees "stabilization occurring" in the job market, saying some sectors have shown improvement.

And can someone please tell me where this "stablization" is occuring because I look every day for jobs in the manufacturing industry and there is just not any to be had anywhere.

Why should we have a "manufacturing Czar" who has ever had any greease under his fingernails? No one else in this administration knows anything about their duties, either.

Doesn't that technically include EVERYTHING that's made by putting two other, smaller, things together?

Wonder if they'll keep an eye on the out-of-control dog-clothing manufacturing industry? :-)
