    And let it get thrown away with the rest of them.

    Your logic is faulty. Let's say three people on my street used a "Gov't Loan" to keep their house instead of defaulting. Does that mean "I" benefited from the Gov't bailout too?
    What they meant was that if GM and Chrysler closed some suppliers that supply all three would have to close the doors and Ford would have lost that line of supply some indirectly they did benefit but that was not their fault. They didn't take money and they sold their cars so they are still around.

    Why would anybody attack Ford for something that was out of their control?

    If three houses were forclosed on and the fourth wasn't then somebody bought the first three to save the property values, you could say the fourth benmefited from the purchase of the three houses but they had nothing to do with the transaction, so why attack them?

    It seems nowadays it is OK to attack big business with or without cause. They are all evil.

    I'm not attacking Ford, I'm attacking this lame defense of Harry Reid's commentary that the Bailout probably saved Ford. Boo's logic is weak.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    It's just a fact; not a defense.

    Defending Reid had NOTHING to do with your "fact" did it... nah.

    Talking points, so transparent.

    No, I could care less about Reid. The fact however is a fact. Nothing more; nothing less.

    Doesn't matter if you do or not. The fact is still a fact.

    Let's see, you throw out there that Ford benefits indirectly from the other two getting the bailouts, you supply no proof of this, you then instead of backing up that ridiculous claim, continue to tout it as a fact merely because you uttered it, and viola! It's a fact?!!! I think not, what is a fact though is your utter misunderstanding of free markets, and capitalism.
