Yes. That headline is correct. As reported in the New York Times, Barack Obama has put a student in charge of the GM bankruptcy. He is a student at Yale Law School, which many regard as the best law school in the world, but he is a 31-year-old student nonetheless.

Brian Deese

Brian Deese works at the National Economic Council and is special assistant to the president for economic policy. According to the New York Times, this boy wonder who is currently on a leave of absence from Yale, “finds himself dismantling General Motors and rewriting the rules of American capitalism.”

Barack Obama ran his campaign on being the “change” candidate. According to him, judgment mattered more than experience. He may be taking that mantra to a ridiculous extreme these days.

As reported in the New York Times, Barack Obama has appointed Brian Deese as a special assistant to the president for economic policy. Deese is the man “in charge” of the overseeing the bankruptcy of General Motors.

What experience does Brian Deese have?

He graduated from Middlebury College in 2000 with a degree in Political Science. After graduating college, he worked for the Center for Global Development as a research assistant, and as a policy analyst at the Center for American Progress. Both are nonprofit think tanks.

Then, he worked on Obama’s campaign as a deputy economic policy director and served on Obama’s transition team as an economic adviser.

Currently, he is a few credits short of graduating from Yale Law School.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m sure Brian Deese is a very smart guy. But he can be the smartest guy on earth, and he still would not be the best guy to be overseeing the GM bankruptcy. He has zero, that’s right, ZERO experience in the private sector, and has never operated a company. I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s never even set foot inside an American car.

I am going to apply for a job in the Obama administration. Ambassador to Australia. I’ve never been, but I read a book about it once, and I actually graduated from law school.
