With GM repaying their loan early- A reminder of what Michael Steele had to say
This is what the RNC had to say about President Obama bailing out GM:

No matter how much the President spins GMs bankruptcy as good for the economy, it is nothing more than another government grab of a private company and another handout to the union cronies who helped bankroll his presidential campaign. President Obama will now own 60 percent of GM, and his union buddies will own almost 20 percent. And what do the taxpayers get?
Theyll get stuck with up to a $50 billion tab for the taxpayer dollars Obama is using to pay for his takeover of GM. Americans shouldnt be fooled. This is the real change President Obama has in mind for America government ownership of our economy financed with irresponsible and reckless government spending and debt and no jobs to show for it. This is a very sad day for the autoworkers and their families whose financial well-being will be directly affected by this clear act of an overreaching UAW and overbearing government.

3. I like how the socialist take over of GM
has micromanaged the company. They no longer make the cars that people want to buy. Only one and a half cylinder cars on the lots sitting there unsold. Well there is that new camero, now available in a convertible and 725 hp model. It was just a give away of our tax dollars, never mind that it is being paid back with interest, at a much higher rate than government bonds.
On second thought, perhaps Obama socialism is working.

4. He has company too.
Sen. Richard Shelby from Alabama reignited his criticism of two of Detroits domestic auto makers Thursday, saying the
viability plans submitted to Congress fall far short of providing credible strategies and contain few concrete commitments
by the companies stakeholders in relation to concessions. Feb. 2009

6. google is pretty easy to use
Senator Corker, Sessions, and Grahamn along w/ others all have some great quotes as per
the auto industry.

All the money will be paid back and with interest too after GM is allowed to take the company
public again.

9. I really hope he stays in his present job for at least 4 more years.
He has been a real asset to the Democrats, and we don't even have to pay him.

12. There is level of dorkiness in that photo that exceeds the maximum allowed for any single picture.
Edited on Tue Apr-20-10 03:45 PM by Ikonoklast
Please re-set the dork meter to zero and try again.

Thank You.
