Executive privilege affords considerable powers under the Constitution. Bear in mind that a President of the USA is the apex of representation for the entirety of the people of the United States -- all the people's power is manifested and focused like light passed through a magnifying glass, bringing outrageously...

What he actually said was if they wanted the bailout money, the CEO had to go. There IS a difference.

no, the government should not control businesses.

Yeah, if the company and the company's finances are affecting (harming) the entire country.

Absolutely not. It's a slippery slope we're on, but some people won't open their eyes 'til they hit the bottom.

If the company is alive because of my tax dollars then yes.... However I don't believe we should have bailed out companies.......

no. thats a private matter. people who made poor choices need to live with the results, its not the governments job to bail them out. unless the CEO broke the law the Government should not interfere at all. the purpose of government is to protect the rights of the people. not provide for them.

Obama did not remove the CEO of the company, he simply bribed the company with bail out money until they had to remove the CEO

Yes, if taxpayer funds were used to bail out that company. Just consider him the Supreme President of those companies. If they don't like it refuse the money like Ford did and move on.

I assume you are talking about GM. In that specific situation, the US government loaned large amounts of money to GM and was given right of 1st lender. This made the US Govt a major creditor of GM. Major creditors of any corporation wield huge influence over the corporation. This is what the President did. He didn't do... More

No - that's not what our country was founded on, nor survives on. We have laws on the books to remove criminals and publicly owned companies have stock holders that the board of directors and the officers of the company have to live up to their expectations to stay in power. The President's job is not to deal with... More

In the case of the GM CEO, yes. But in a normal situation where the company is not relying on government/taxpayer money, no.
