    What do you think of GM's "thank you" ad?

    Watch the advertisement...

    take the poll...



    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I'm not terribly impressed. I seriously doubt it's meant in the spirit it's presented in. Buying goodwill with ad time doesnt really impress me.

    They better be saying thank you. And I don't see any problem with it, we gave them money, and now they've given a lot of it back, and they're a much more competitive company than before.

    Well the commercial isnt a high-tech video. Its just a simple representation to get the point across. Its simple. Its MEANT to be simple. Its just says we all get knocked on our ass... and then we get up again. (yes Im thinking of that song too)
    Its meant as a good will commerical that is well intended. Also its advertising. Either way I appreciate it. They COULD have just taken that money and advertised their cars. Its a very good marketing move if ya ask me.

    They spent a couple thousand on the airtime for it and probably an hour making it, why is this such an awesome thing?

    Gotta agree.

    Although there has been some "accounting fancy footwork" which has overstated the success, all in all the GM bailaout has turned out much better than I expected. Very pleasant surprise....

    I loved it. Very classy move by GM. I suspect some conservatives simply do not want to be reminded and are disturbed by it thinking their faces are being rubbed in the dirt.

    If GM's sales contiune at their current growth rates as if their Asian branch picks up as its predicted, using the timeline of projected government stock sales and likely dividend and stock appreciation, there actually is a pretty decent chance we'll get a profit on this. People are far too focused on appreciation. That's not the only venue of income.
