They’re kidding, right? It’s a joke. Ha ha ha.
Someone from the government is going to oversee the car makers. Someone appointed by the Bush administration is going to be responsible for making sure the car makers, whose goal is to get our money, spend our money correctly. Would this be the same administration that manages social security? the same administration that is managing 750 billion of our money…yet doesn’t appeared to have accomplished anything other than propping up the party at AIG.
See, I think there is some confusion. Just take Speaker Pelosi’s comments today…”This is a barbershop, and everyone is getting a haircut.” Someone on her staff needs to tell her that barbershops are not at stake here. Cars and trucks, Nancy. Cars and trucks. Not haircuts. She’s had that dazed look for awhile and no wonder.
So line up you corporate weasels! The government is having a holiday sale and even though they appear to be concerned they’re giving away billions, paid for by the sweat of us all. Mis-managed? Got caught with your hand in the till? No problem. They don’t care if you’re in prison. The government will succeed where others have failed. Doesn’t matter what credit you have. Just belly up to the (fed)bar…the drinks are on The House.
