I know this is a cliche, but this is outrageous! I realize you have to keep the Unions happy if you’re a Democrat, but this is ridiculous. Sickening.

Hmmmmm ... a little over-reaching powers by the POTUS? Why don’t we demand that BO resign instead.

“The Obama administration asked Rick Wagoner, the chairman and CEO of General Motors, to step down and he agreed, a White House official said.”

Translation: “Obama fired Rick Wagoner and is now running GM.”

And you wonder why the banks are deciding to return the bailout funds.

O learned well from the other fascists around the world.

They brought the economy down with their demands for free housing for everyone. They exploited the poor and their scam enabled them to oversee the destruction of our economy and our country.

Who’s next? Who will Obama appoint to run the General White House Motors?

The ruler of the universe. Welcome to “nationalization”. They won’t call it that, of course. Anyone who says differently is a Rush-bot Republican nutcase. Some might call this fascism.

Exactly! Why do the people apparently condone this degree of meddling by the administration in the (formerly) private sector.

We need to get past tea parties and on to the real civil disobedience stuff. It’s time to take back the country.

Step one...notify ALL your elected officials in Washington demanding they immediately repeal ALL bailout programs. Let the market determine its own level. Artificially contrived market assistance at this point is merely postponing the inevitable. It was proven in the 1930’s and is about to be proven again.

This sends an even stronger signal for businesses not to look to the Federal government to bail them out.

It reminds me of the scene in Goodfellas after the restaurant owner begged Pauly to become his partner for protection. The restaurant was promptly run into the ground and torched by Pauly's henchmen.

I had to explain to my 13 year old the difference between a president and a dictator, and how Obama is acting like the latter.

Hey, I would’ve quit, too.

Do I look like I want to get the “ACORN treatment” like the AIG execs did?

Well, ME specifically: I would welcome them, primarily as target practice and only secondarily for the amusement value.

However, Wagoner looks like the kind of guy who would probably dislocate a joint trying to pull a trigger.

“Welcome to the United States of Zimbabwe”

I take it when Bush fired AIG head Willumstad last September that wasn’t fascism and was done for the good of the country, right? Obama wanting that incompetant, arrogant sob Wagoner’s hide on the wall is about equal to my desire as a former GM stockholder for the same thing!

How much of our money has AIG taken to make sure Wall Street and the foreign banks keep making their bonus payments Hank Paulson’s buddies? Try a comparison of that fiscal fiasco with what GM and Chrysler are looking for and what it will cost management and labor. Zimbabwe indeed! /s

Wagoner had the bankruptcy filing ready to be filed in Delaware tomorrow, Pres Obortion said no way not before G20 saves the world this week, so Rick quit taking his parachute with him.

I suspect the UAW demanded sacrifices from everyone, including Management, and Obama complied by ousting Waggoner.
