The only GE position the right-wing hacks took was in 2009--they shorted GE and the DOW. Bad mistake. That's why they are so hysterical today. They missed out on a life-changing investment opportunity.
I think many of them came when GE owned NBC and particularly MSNBC (too liberal.) Some of them still think that GE still owns the NBC stations others continue to post here since they don’t like change.
