Inexperienced Youngster Put in Charge of Dismantling GM

This[1] should come as no surprise, considering our boy president was installed in office without having any serious credentials:

It is not every 31-year-old who, in a first government job, finds himself dismantling General Motors and rewriting the rules of American capitalism.

But that, in short, is the job description for Brian Deese, a not-quite graduate of Yale Law School who had never set foot in an automotive assembly plant until he took on his nearly unseen role in remaking the American automotive industry.

Nor, for that matter, had he given much thought to what ailed an industry that had been in decline ever since he was born. A bit laconic and looking every bit the just-out-of-graduate-school student adjusting to life in the West Wing … Mr. Deese was thrown into the auto industry’s maelstrom as soon the election-night parties ended.

Deese’s automobile experience consists of sleeping in his car in the parking lot of a Pontiac plant on his way to Washington.

The kid in charge of the auto industry.
