    The CEO of Ford would want his competition burdened with such a massive bailout plan. Ford has taken full advantage of the situation. Don't be blinded by bull(*)(*)(*)(*).

    Nixon was a paranoid that at least had the decency to resign. Obama hasn't the brains to know it's time.

    GM has got all those pensions and debt off of them and they can now compete with all the foreign own auto companies. It doesn't do this country one bit of good to see them go under now.
    No that is not what will happen. Hundreds of thousands would not be put out of work. It would be sold off and most of it would still be operated. Just without the Union contracts that exist now.
    Most companies that undergo that kind of selloff are operated by the courts until their assets are sold.

Your only hurting your own country. I can't believe that my fellow Republicans can be so stupid you can't see that.
    It's about one car,,,,,,,,that's it! They should have made a car everybody would have wanted,,but Noooooooooooooooooo,,,they had to Bow to the Government and produced an overpriced Roman Candle!!! I would not trust any report knowing the Government may have done some arm twisting. The Government screws up enough and we do not need them using OUR money to PUSH their agenda!!!
    We want lower fuel prices, not Obama political substitutes....

    And as far as Republicans go we want LESS GOVERNMENT,,,NOT MORE!! They screwed up from the start [as stated], and they will keep screwing up....I do not want them NEAR ANYTHING having to do with business...
    Infraction??, but he insulted me FIRST!!
    So report him.He reported you, we usually check reports first. Next time report him
    Oh, I will thanx...

    So you think the right thing to do is to continue to do the wrong thing? HUH?

    The fallacy you keep spewing is hundreds of thousands out of work. You make it out as if GM goes away completely (won't happen because many firms operate in chapter 11) that the demand for a product also disappears. Ford could not fill the demand with its present production rate. They would need to tool up and add employees

    Chrysler and GM should have taken the bitter pill instead of giving the taxpayers the shaft.

    What GM and Chrysler should have done has nothing to do what is happening TODAY. Why can't you guys see that? You boycott both of them, yes, you'll put them out of business. You'll get hunderds of thousands of employees laid off. Parts plants will go out of business. Foreign auto companies will pick up the slack which will increase our balance of trade even more in their favor. Billions of dollars in profit will leave this country. Why is that so hard for you people to understand?

    Do you hate unions and Obama so freakin much that you'll try and hurt this country to get back at them? That's stupid. Just plain stupid.

    The Government is giving credits to all cars that are gas/ electric, not just GM. Toyota is getting it too.

    This is just hilarious. Its true though....its great to know that any business can make it with unlimited financial resources and the backing of the federal government.
    the Fiero was bad ass...after that, this (*)(*)(*)(*)(*)(*) bag piece just falls apart. there's enough to criticize w/o resorting to hyper-hyperbole.
    What you have whispered to someone behind closed doors will be shouted from the rooftops.
    Do you want to live in Flint or Detroit but don't want the hassle of relocating? Keep voting for Democrats, and they will move to you.

    Bullions of dollars we put out in tax dollars to bail them out will be lost with no chance of ever getting back one penny. Come on people, think what the hell your doing.
