"Illinois Workers Suck"
Globe Energy LLC president David Jones said LaHood told him a few years ago that Illinois has a bad reputation when it comes to work ethic. Jones said he has found it true that Illinoisans' have a questionable work ethic.
LaHood said Wednesday that Jones' claim he made the comment was "baloney."
LaHood said he met with Jones several years ago when Jones was attempting to establish Globe Energy, an English company, in Peoria. The company provides energy saving technology to commercial firms.
The controversy comes as Jones tries to expand Globe Energy's staff in Peoria by 50 people.You'll also remember that last time LaHood made national news was when he wanted to tax everyone by the mile, not the gallon of fuel consumed.
My immediate reaction to this comment is that Obama is following Warren G Harding's Presidency over Lincoln or Cater. Remember, Harding is reputed to have said: “I have no trouble with my enemies, but my damn friends, my God-damned friends… they’re the ones that keep me walking the floor nights!”
