Van Jones, President Obama's "green czar" may be gone, but team Obama isn't standing pat. They've announced their new "manufacturing czar" Ron Bloom, an investment banker and AFL-CIO money guy. If lack of actual manufacturing experience was a prerequisite then it appears they've got their man.
Before being promoted to the new "manufacturing czar" position Bloom was in charge of the auto bailout.
So the auto bailout was a debacle, certainly they'll do much better with manufacturing, right? Surely your confidence will be bolstered by the fact that manufacturing policy in the United States will be set by "labor's man," right?
What could possibly go wrong?
