Quote of the day — Special Edition

Usually, we let our Quotes of the day stand alone and allow our readers to come to their own conclusions. However, this quote from Jeffrey Immelt begs commentary.

Jeffrey Immelt, General Electric CEO and Chairman of President Obama's Council of Jobs and Competitiveness, on the only thing that seems to work well in China:

"The one thing that actually works, state run communism a bit– may not be your cup of tea, but their government works."

Here is an example of how the Chinese government "works":

You are right about one thing, Mr. Immelt; it is not everyone's "cup of tea."

    The Cuban government works, too. For itself, but it's very happy with the results.

    Immelt looks like a less inbred version of Ted Turner.

    This is like somebody saying "pedophilia may not be your cup of tea, but it works for some people." It's really unbelievable this guy would feel comfortable (and safe) enough to say such a monstrosity, but that's where we are now. Lord have mercy.

    Is he much different then Sean Penn, or Van Jones - not really. What a friggin, disgusting disgrace, I imagine that Obama has promised him that he'll still be living large even as they dismantle our free market system. This piece of shit will be one of the elites on the Central Committee that runs the country, while the rest of us try to keep our heads above the muck. He's also no different from the 'capitalists' that sucked up to Hitler's Nazis and Mussolini's Fascists, so they could keep their perks. This is what America has bred over the past 40-plus years. I could choke the SOB!

    Immelt is worse, because he's far more in touch with reality, as he has to be, and he's still willing to spew pernicious praise for a monstrously evil and perverse system that has done incalculable harm. He does it to ingratiate himself with those he feels are in control and potentially most useful and beneficial to him, which is apparently all he cares about. I believe it's called malignant amorality. Despicable.
