I couldn't be happier for Ford Motors. Good on them.

One comment bothers me. We all know that it wasn't really a bailout of Chrysler and GM. It was a bailout of the UAW and its "Cadillac" health care plan! Without those taxpayers' dollars, they were done.

Which brings up another point. The unions were up in arms about the tax on Cadillac plans, before Obama exempted them. You would think some curious journalist would think to ask, "Why does the UAW still have a Cadillac health care plan? They are broke! The taxpayers are paying for those plans and the taxpayers don't have as good insurance as the UAW workers and retirees!

You have to give the folks at Ford a lot of credit for their foresight. And if I was going to buy a car from the American three it would be a Ford.

We’ve never owned a new foreign car. We currently have an 01 GMC Sierra, an 05 Dodge Gr Caravan, both bought new, and an 00 Olds Intrigue. I have had a Ford Fusion and Taurus as rental cars fairly recently, before Zero was annointed, and was leaning heavily Ford based on the strength of those experiences, but now with the takeover/union bailouts noted here and in the linked article, I will not look elsewhere than Ford from now on.

A lot of Ford's success is due to the fact that they just make a better product.

And the decision to bring in someone from outside the industry (Alan Mulally) to break the historic insularity was a courageous and profitable deed as well.

I have always been a Ford guy. In fact I just bought a 05 Mercury Sable Ls “premier”. Love it so far.

Good for Ford. Like many others, I pledge to never buy a GM or Chrysler vehicle again.

The secret to Ford Motor's success

"I do not like the sea of white faces in the audience and FoMoCo must ensure that in the future the company reflects the broad spectrum of Ford’s customers."

Jacques Nasser is no longer CEO and FoMoCo remembered that there are a lot of white people in America?

I know the secret.

Most Americans will never buy a Gov Moters as it supports Obama’s plan. I’m a fleet buyer and will never buy a GM or Fiat Crysler ever again. Most folks I know feel the same way.
