In the aftermath of the UAW’s failure to loot the Treasury, one of the geniuses advising Barack Obama made this comment:
Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm (D) said it was “un-American” for senators to have voted against approving a bailout of troubled automakers last night, saying their vote may cause a recession to become a depression. – Weekly Standard
Jenni Granholm is the economic wunderkind whose big idea for reviving Michigan’s economy was “Cool Cities.”
i.e.,If only Detroit had enough trendy coffee bars, prosperity would follow.
Never mind that Detroit can’t even keep any supermarkets open inside the city limits.
Would you want to buy from a UAW-staffed coffee bar? Your coffee would come to you cold, forty minutes late, cost $40 a cup, and they’d spit in it.
Real economic genius, Michigan governor Granholm. And the people of Michigan proved their own genius by re-electing her.
