Pictured above are Suzy and Jack Welch. He’s the former CEO of General Electric, and she’s the former editor in chief of the Harvard Business Review.
Suzy recently made a fool of herself during a discussion on national television in which she compared President Obama’s singing of the opening lines of Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together” with Mitt Romney’s now-infamous rendition of “America The Beautiful.”
Mrs. Welch said:
It’s the difference between the songs that they’re singing. Mitt Romney didn’t exactly do a beautiful job on that song, but think about what he’s singing, OK? I mean it’s that patriotic song and he goes all the way through it. Then you’ve got the very cool Barack Obama singing Al Green. That is the two different Americas. Isn’t it?
Two different Americas? The woman is suggesting that Obama’s choice of a soul song is somehow fundamentally at odds with Romney’s choice of a patriotic song. She’s saying that Obama’s America is different from Romney’s America — and not in a good way.
Wouldn’t it be fun to further engage Suzy on this subject at one of her parties in the Hamptons?
