  The idea that the Federal Government is going to appoint someone that can solve the automaker’s problems would be unbelievable if it didn’t come from the…the Federal Government.  I am sure you have seen, that we’re to accept that a tough, smart business or political type is going to force the automakers and unions to come to a permanent solution, and in the process, dictate what type of “green” autos it deems the customer to need (not want).

Perhaps the strongest case against Government involvement is the conflict of interest.  In the last election, the United Autoworkers gave nearly $2 million to political candidates (99% of that to Democrats).  And nearly all that came from Political Action Committees.  Over the last ten election cycles, the UAW has given $25 million to politicians (again, 99% to Democrats).  Why isn’t anyone talking about this?

  2. The bailout is not an auto bailout, but rather a “payback” the unions.

  3. What’s going to happen when the Chinese are allowed to market and sell their cars in the U.S. Knowing the way the liberals operate, they will welcome them with open arms and allow relaxed safety and emissions standards.
