26. They're people who have different types of relationships with each other.
Edited on Thu Jun-17-10 03:46 AM by Radical Activist
Kind of like how I have a different relationship with my sister-in-law than my brother does even though she's the same person. I'm sure GE has some influence with Obama but that's not the same as having a power relationship over a media outlet GE owns. It's silly to equate the two different types of relationships. Having influence with a person is not the same as having direct control over a person.

As we have seen in his actions and this speech, Obama is pursuing a number of agenda items strongly opposed by GE. If GE had direct control over Obama, like they would over an employee, then he would be acting a lot more like Ronald Reagan than he is right now.
