In an interview that aired Sunday, General Electric Chairman and Obama job czar Jeffrey Immelt told CBS' Leslie Stahl that the notion that Americans were against big companies was "just wrong."
"I want you to root for me," Immelt said. "Everybody in Japan roots for Toshiba. Everybody in China roots for China South Rail. I want you to say, 'Win, GE.'
hey, genius! It's not that we're rooting against GE. We're more than happy to see GE succeed. What we have a problem with is you shipping jobs overseas, making huge profits off of war, and then paying no taxes. We would like GE to succeed without fucking us over. If you're going to keep behaving like you hate America, then the hell with you.
I feel like I have way more invested in KIA doing well, since they started making cars in Georgia, then an "American" company who makes all its stuff in China. How do you not get that?
