Project 21’s Deneen Borelli on Fox News Tuesday Morning to Talk About GE’s Jeff Immelt

On Tuesday morning, Deneen Borelli — a fellow with the National Center’s Project 21 black leadership network — will be a guest on the Fox News Channel.  She is scheduled to be on “Fox and Friends” at approximately 7:20 AM eastern.

Deneen will be talking about General Electric CEO Jeff Immelt.  The National Center’s Free Enterprise Project just released a new commercial, created jointly with FreedomWorks, asking for people to sign a petition asking for Immelt to resign from GE for — among other things — supporting “cap-and-trade” energy regulations that will hurt GE employees, investors and consumers and lobbying for federal stimulus and bailout money.  Immelt was also just selected by President Obama to lead the White House’s new “President’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness” while simultaneously running GE.

In a statement released today, Deneen had this to say about Immelt’s presidential appointment:

Tragically, the continuing Obama-Immelt partnership is going to drive our economy and job creation over a cliff.  Their war on fossil fuels is only going to drive jobs overseas.  Americans stated loudly and clearly in last November’s elections that ‘We the People’ will not stand for policies that expands government and raises energy prices.  Putting Immelt in charge of this new council sends exactly the wrong message.

The National Center/FreedomWorks commercial is featured above.
