The "Czar-castic" Ron Bloom, Manufacturing Czar

Quick piece of housekeeping - there will be videos included with my blog entries the next several days. If you get my e-mail updates, it's very likely the videos will not come through in the e-mails. The quickest way to access the videos will be to click on the e-mail title which will direct you back to the blog page where you can view them.

Today's featured czar is Ron Bloom, Manufacturing Czar, who was appointed in July 2009. He is in charge of overseeing the bailouts and restructuring of GM (Government Motors) and Chrysler. This position was formerly known as the Car Czar when held by Steve Rattner who resigned over questions about his involvement in alleged financial fraud. Bloom's background is :
  1. raised in union family,
  2. United Steelworkers Union leader from 1996 to February 2009,
  3. Service Employees International Union (SEIU) member, and
  4.  wrote an article in the fall of 2006 for the Democratic Socialists of America magazine which said " ... free markets and the joys of competition is nothing but pablum (def. from Webster's - soft cereal for infants) for the suckers."
His views on the free market and the roles of union in industry is evident in this video :

Hmmm. He thinks the free market is a joke and agrees with Mao that power comes from a gun. Is this socialist / communist really the guy we want overseeing the auto bailout and restructuring ?? Could it be that his appointment is nothing but a union payoff ?? Is this the best Obama can do when it comes to "special advisors ??"

When I started this series, I picked out six of Obama's Czars to highlight. Tomorrow, we'll look at the second whose also one of the nuttiest - the "Czar-castic" Cass Sunstein, Regulatory Czar.
