mrshowrules: Not sure about that appointment but with Ann's experience with horses, Obama want to consider her for the Director of FEMA.

sweetmelissa31: Rafalca: Ambassador to the USSR

Just like a lib to think that diplomacy will deter the Soviet threat

Wouldn't Republicans be against appointing another Czar?

As long as the legs of his chair at the table where everyone sits is sawed down 10 inches. And he has absolutely no power whatsoever and does it for zero pay, then I'd be just fine with it.
2012-11-09 01:58:25 PM  
We could bundle Romney off as the ambassador to some out of the way place like Bolivia or Cameroon, but he'd be able to just buy the country outright and then start setting up his Mormon army to take back the presidency that is rightfully his, by prophecy.
2012-11-09 01:59:04 PM  

Jacobin: A consolation prize? Why not make him ambassador to Libya? He seemed obsessed with that place

And there is an opening in Benghazi!

/too soon?

A vulture capitalist as the 'Secretary of Business'? No.

Give me the guy who finally realized Dorito Tacos was something worth putting out for the world to enjoy.

Let's put it this way. The next time Obama is thinking about grand compromises with the GOP as currently constructed, he should consult the following flowchart:

Really, maybe just a "Participant" ribbon would be all for the best.

Make him ambassador to the Soviet Union. As soon as he can find the place he called America's biggest threat he gets the job.

Dammit beat me to it!

/Good job.
2012-11-09 02:02:33 PM  
Why not name him 'Secretary of Raping Small Companies and Shipping Their Jobs Overseas'?
2012-11-09 02:02:48 PM  
We have a Secretary of Commerce. We have a Secretary of Labor. They're both cabinet-level.

Why, exactly, do we need a business secretary? Is this someone whose job it is to tell our bootstrappy galtian overlords that we love them very much? Mitt Romney would, admittedly, be good at that.

Because he's really, really bad at business. The only thing he did that made any money was to siphon off cash by liquidating resources while the company sunk (or while he sunk the company).

That's... a really shiatty management style that fails terribly if you're trying to do anything long-term.

You know what? You're absolutely correct. Unlike Romney, that genius figured out what was missing from the market, and filled a niche.

The Doritos Taco guy understands the marketplace, his customers, and current trends. The dude has that product selling right before Washington and Colorado voted? Yeah, there's someone who knows how to make money.

oldernell: Because he doesn't know a damn thing about it.

Wrong, he knows how to make himself very wealthy. Often at the expense of the businesses and employees involved.

I just borrowed this from The Superficial, who borrowed it from someone else. So here: Mitt the consummate businessman, at work.

Mitt Romney pulled such an incredibly impressive dick move Tuesday night, that I couldn't live with myself if we didn't take a moment to bask in its dickishness. I'm genuinely not even trying to make fun of the guy, that's how awestruck I am by the epic lack of fark he managed to give. It's practically biblical. Via NBC News thanks to Todd who I feel like I owe a firstborn to for this:

From the moment Mitt Romney stepped off stage Tuesday night, having just delivered a brief concession speech he wrote only that evening, the massive infrastructure surrounding his campaign quickly began to disassemble itself.
Aides taking cabs home late that night got rude awakenings when they found the credit cards linked to the campaign no longer worked.
"Fiscally conservative," sighed one aide the next day.
2012-11-09 02:20:07 PM  
Because he's a horrible business man.

Was it him? I didn't click, but I'm willing to bet $10,000 a turd of that magnitude could only come from Wolf Blitzer. I can see him asking it in that concerned voice of his, the kind he uses to sound like a big boy news reporter when he's in fact asking questions that would embarrass a 3rd grader.

Kibbler: Other suggestions:

Newt Gingrich: head of the EPA
Todd Akin: Secy. of HHS
Rush Limbaugh: Secy. of Lardassery

Well, he is very concerned with global warming.

How about naming Romney the Secretary of Outsourcing. Give him a job he actually knows something about.
2012-11-09 03:04:57 PM  
Here is a suggestion. DON'T GROW THE BUREAUCRACY! We do NOT need yet another cabinet level position. Secretary of Commerce already exists. What is commerce, but business. THIS idea of a new secretary position is the dumbest thing I've heard out of the Obama campaign.

Fiscal responsibility starts with efficiency in government.
2012-11-09 03:09:19 PM  
Yeah, let's get the guy who thinks that shutting down energy exports for use here at home is compatible with expanding free trade agreements and that the economy will see short term job increases amidst a trade war with China have a say on business matters for the benefit of the US economy.

And the guy who rescued the Olympics with his business acumen by having the feds hand him a billion dollars. Forgot that point.

How about we just contract him out as an economic consultant to foreign countries instead in order to increase our competitiveness. Though that might violate the Geneva Convention or something.
2012-11-09 03:12:52 PM  
Because fark Mitt Romney and the political horse he rode in on.

Next question?

If there's going to be a freaking Secretary of Business, go with Buffet. He knows how to improve businesses rather than sucking them dry.
2012-11-09 04:20:00 PM  
A more trollerific (and less "omfg you can't be serious") move would be for Obama to name Jon Huntsman as Secretary of State.
2012-11-09 04:33:43 PM  
There is already a Commerce Secretary, and the Republicanism want to abolish it.

If he's any good, the Chamber of Commerce will make him an offer.
2012-11-09 06:34:24 PM  
Do it. And as part of the vetting process, ask him for 20 years of tax returns.
2012-11-09 06:37:11 PM  
I thought we already had a department of commerce. Or would that be more of a department of labor thing? Or would we surgically meld the two like some twisted human centipede. That sounds like something Romney would do.

Dr.Zom: Palin

I'd make Palin ambassador to Youbetchastan.
2012-11-09 08:28:04 PM  
I originally thought Obama should throw him a bone to show no hard feelings and that he can build a bridge. But since "real" Republicans are now repudiating him, and the only foreign leader who has any respect for him at all is Bibi, I don't know what he post he could offer Romney better than Official White House Tea Boy.
2012-11-09 10:24:32 PM  
The feck would we need a Sec Business when we already have a Sec Commerce?

Dwight_Yeast: The feck would we need a Sec Business when we already have a Sec Commerce?

It's not a real thing. Obama floated a suggestion that he might consolidate some departments, reduce red tape. He said, maybe the head of these melded departments could be a sort of 'Secretary of Business.' Right wingers ran wit "OMG! Another Czar!" Paul Ryan went with 'I guess he doesn't know we already have a Secretary of Commerce.'

Ta. Da.

Eh, no. Those things go soggy instantly, and turn your fingers orange.
