If you need more evidence that President Obama isn’t making a good faith effort at getting our economy going again, just consider John Bryson, Obama’s nominee to be Secretary of Commerce.
Bryson is a co-founder of the Natural Resources Defense Council, an dextreme enviro activist group, and his business experience consists of being a CEO of a regulated utility with a captive customer base. Bryson is an advocate of solar power and electric cars — neither of which will be jump-starting the U.S. economy anytime soon.
Probably the only thing that the Commerce Department or rest of the federal government could actually do to help the economy is to get out of the way. But we doubt that will be happening.
