Barack Obamas “superhero move”

Barack Obama, der amerikanische Präsident, hat den Boss von General Motors gefeuert, in der Tat, quasi persönlich. Querdenker Michael Moore (”Bowling for Columbine”) kommentiert diesen Schachzug des Politikers in seiner neuesten Kolumne. Und er tut das auf seine ganz eigene Art und Weise. Lesenswert.

I write this letter to you in memory of the hundreds of thousands of workers over the past 25+ years who have been tossed into the trash heap by General Motors. Many saw their lives ruined for good. They turned to alcohol or drugs, their marriages fell apart, some took their own lives. Most moved on, moved out, moved over, moved away. They ended up working two jobs for half the pay they were getting at GM. And they cursed the CEO of GM for bringing ruin to their lives.

Not one of them ever thought that one day they would witness the CEO receive the same treatment. Of course Chairman Wagoner will not have to sign up for food stamps or be evicted from his home or tell his kids they’ll be going to the community college, not the university. Instead, he will get a $23 million golden parachute. But the slip in his hands is still pink, just like the hundreds of thousands that others received — except his was issued by us, via the Obama-man. Here’s the door, buster. See ya. Don’t wanna be ya.
