So is this a "real" position or one of those "" positions?   (Source: Reuters)
Otellini will give Obama a helping hand on getting Americans back to work

Intel Corp.'s chief executive Paul Otellini has been tapped by U.S. President Barack Obama to be a member of the President's Council on Jobs and Competitiveness.  General Electric chief executive Jeffrey Immelt chairs the panel.  Its goal is to put Americans back to work, post recession and to promote skilled and professional jobs.

The White House says that it will name more board members in coming weeks.  President Obama, following the severe recession of 2008 and 2009, first created the board in 2009.

President Obama is currently wrapping up a West Coast trip, in which he dined with the likes of Steve Jobs (Apple), Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook), and Eric Schmidt (Google).  Today he is touring Intel's Hillsboro, Oregon facility, accompanied by Mr. Otellini.

Mr. Otellini is only Intel's fifth chief executive.  He has been with the company for over three decades, having joined in 1974.  He slowly climbed the ranks, gaining notice as the general manager who supervised the design of the first Pentium processors in 1993.  From there he became executive vice president and general manager of the Intel Architecture Group, supervising chipset and processor development.

In 2002 he was elected to the company's board of directors and became president and chief operating officer.  In 2005, he replaced Craig Barret as chief executive.

During his reign as chief executive he sold Apple on the idea of using Intel processors and oversaw the launch of the highly successful Core series of processors.  Despite these successes, he's had to make cuts, committing to the largest series of layoffs in the company's history during the downturn.

Now he's going to be looking to put Americans back to work.

It always amuses me listening to you petulant left wing dullards call republicans sheeples. You Nanny Statist liberals are the ones who want to keep everyone dependent on government from cradle to grave and hate it when a company makes a freaking PROFIT .

And by the way, you do realize that US corporations and companies get tax breaks for offering benefits to their employees, right? Benefits like continuing education, child care assistance, maternity leave, and other things. There is no such thing as a free lunch, liberals.

You Nanny Statist liberals

Oh please with the Faux-doms. First off I haven't voted either party in decades. Both parties have sheeple, else why would the 2 party merry-go-round continue?

hate it when a company makes a freaking PROFIT

There you go again, hailing your political alliance above all else.

People who put political ideology ahead of truth and ethics are neither? patriots nor human beings.

Now please return to your cult follower status.

Hey Nfarce,

It appears your brethren have screwed up while making profits. I'm sure you'll feel lots of pity for the company, and none for the victims.

By definition a misanthrope.
