Now that President Obama has taken over management of GM through the ousting of its CEO, and underwriting its warranties, I wonder what sort of compensation he is receiving.
On Sunday, George Stephanopoulos was able to attribute a jump in the stock market to an Administration announcement, so would it not be reasonable to attribute changes in GM sales to President Obama’s efforts? And if so, wouldn’t it be reasonable for the President to earn a commission just like any other salesman?
The President did emphasize in his remarks today that he was seeking fairness in the auto industry, and now that he’s a member I do not see why he would be excluded from fair compensation for his efforts.
It’s only fair.
