    You will find that this will be a recurring theme with this President; hang on to your wallets my friend, this is JUST the beginning.

    BUT, you get what you VOTE for, or DON'T vote for.

    Is it just me, or does anybody else see a problem here?

    Article is here.
    None of this since Obama took over has been about "helping" any industry, it's been about control over our lives via the Government. Anyone who thinks otherwise isn't really paying attention.

    Since the government seems to be carelessly throwing around bailout money like confetti maybe we should all write the government acting like we are a corporation having financial difficulties so that we can possibly get some free dough as well.

    That plan doesn't sound like debt forgiveness to me.

    It won't work, they use your level of campaign contributions as means testing.

    Personally I never believed that it was loan. All the government did was throw money at Chrysler and hoped that it would come back to life. The old business rule "You cant fix something by just throwing money at it" applies greatly here.

    Obama and the DEms owe the Unions, or are owned by the unions even as they control them as it were.

    Letting GM or Chrysler fall putting the Unions out of work is a non-option. Period. The correct, economically correct answer was to let them fall and then create incentives for a new auto industry to rise from the ashes.

    That however doesn't help the political cause of the unions. We're paying billions to keep unions under the control of a political party. Why do you think Card Check is so important? If, Obama and Co. had let the big three sink or swim, the Card Check issue would have died.


    American's need to wake up and realize what's really going on here.

    ...and GM and Wall Street bankers and healthcare. It's easy throwing money at problems when it is not your own isn't it?

    We can expect more of these irresponsible partisan antics from the great orator in the near future; hell, we haven't even begun to "re-structure" healthcare yet!

    We don't agree on much, but sometimes we do find common ground on a few issues. This is one of them.
