America’s CEO is Off the Grid


Obama is on vacation and off playing golf all the time. All he does care about is power.
Check it out:

Okay, ladies and gentlemen, we have the CEO of the United States of America basically saying, “I didn’t know about any of this.” We have the CEO of the United States, the chief executive, saying, “I didn’t know about the IRS, and I didn’t know about the IG report.” Folks, he’s stretching credulity. He’s lying about this. I just want to ask you to make a comparison. Let’s say that this afternoon there is an oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, and let’s say that it’s an Exxon well.

Just to make up something, let’s say it’s an Exxon well that starts leaking and there’s oil all over the Gulf of Mexico, and the Exxon CEO strides to the microphone and says, “You know, I really don’t know about any of this. My staff hasn’t told me. Now, I don’t like it, and I’m gonna get this fixed. I’m gonna fire whoever runs that thing out there.” What if the CEO of BP, British Petroleum, had reacted the way Obama did?

If any CEO of any multinational corporation reacting to inappropriate behavior by employees, says, “It’s their fault. I didn’t know about it,” do you think it would work? Would that CEO get away with it? Would the business media cover for the CEO of Exxon? That happens to be Rex Tillerson, so let’s put a name to it. There’s a big oil spill this afternoon. Let’s say it happens. I don’t even know that Exxon has a rig out there, but let’s say they do.

They have an Exxon rig and it blows up, and there’s oil all over, and there are fires on the surface of the Gulf of Mexico. Rex Tillerson, CEO of Exxon, waits three or four days and calls a press conference. “You know, I just found out about this a couple of days ago, and I’m trying to get to the bottom of it. I want to assure everybody it isn’t gonna happen again. All right? Now, I gotta get back to running Exxon. So I’ll see you.”

Would people put up with that?
