It will be interesting to see who our majestic highness, the Emperor Obama appoints to that post. He’s probably going to start making Putin jealous.

Wagoner is just following the smart guy’s (Lutz) lead. Wagoner is no AP Sloan.

I don’t agree with this decision, but I’ll support it if it’s followed by the forced resignation of Gettelfinger.

I’m sure Wagoner got some sort of golden parachute out of this. He’ll leave quietly, or else this will be a drawn out battle that even Obama would probably want to avoid.

If I were Wagoner, I would have told Zero "I have decided to take the company into Chapter 11 Sunday night - your Feds can go to hell."

That’s the problem they did not ask for more GM was to file bankruptcy and the Whitie House said no Rick you are fired and Zeus the dictator will take over from here.

I bet this red son of a bitch’s plan for GM is not going to workout any better than his plan to demonize Limbaugh.

we should never have bailed out Chrysler. Despite what the politicians say, it didn’t really “work.” Bankruptcy would have been more economically efficient for a loser like Chrysler.

But everyone keeps on doing bailouts as if they really work. We are going to bail out ourselves to death.
