The Clintons asked GM to build a green car SIXTEEN FRIGGIN YEARS AGO. Instead, GM chose to build SUV’s that not only guzzle gas, but also tip over! I don’t think they should be privy to one penny of my tax money. F ‘EM! They’ve had 16 years to do the right thing for America and they’ve chosen not to.
Let’s take that bailout money and invest in a greencar company or at least an American smartcar. Set one up in Detroit overseen by U Michigan engineers. They know a little something about cars.
The whole point of capitalism, is that it rewards those with foresight and good ideas, and punishes short-sighted dimwits. If we continue to bailout the dimwitted, the cream will never have a chance to rise.
