S&P Futures down 2% at this hour. Clearly global markets not pleased with Obama’s first mandate.

The government is so unpredictable on who wins and who loses. They have shown why private/public partnerships don’t work. Tomorrow should be a very interesting day in the markets.

The Dow will drop 500 points tomorrow. Investors are going to punish Obama hard.

He may get destroyed long before he destroys America. He is making lots and lots of powerful enemies. Many more than JFK did.

GM went to the government, not vice versa. Bailout funds can come with strings just like any other investor that saves a company, they get to call some shots to affect the investment. Bush did the same with AIG CEO Robert Willumstad last September.

GM has lost over $80 billion in the last three years and 95 percent of its total value since CEO Wagoner took the reins in 2000.

Do you honestly think firing this guy as a condition of taking OUR money is a facist move? I don’t think so, I think like Bush’s firing of AIG’s Willumstad, it isn’t facist, it’s prudent.

FORD HAS A BETTER IDEA—MOVE TO BRAZIL

FORD'S TEST BED: Brazil's Camaçari plant is model for the future
Bryce G. Hoffman / The Detroit News

At Ford Motor Co.’s factory here, a group of Visteon Corp. workers connect the wiring in a dashboard module for a Ford EcoSport. Next to them, Lear Corp. employees are building seats for the same vehicle. A few feet away, Ford's Diede Silva dos Santos applies trim to a Fiesta subcompact. She's mastered seven jobs at the plant and is working on an eighth.

“If you do different jobs, it's more interesting,” said Silva dos Santos, 24. “It gives me a chance to expand my knowledge. (It) makes me a more valuable employee, too, so that I will have a future here.”

All of them exemplify a different kind of worker in a different kind of plant for a Detroit automaker.

This state-of-the-art manufacturing complex in the northeastern Brazilian state of Bahia is not only the centerpiece of Ford's Brazilian turnaround plan, it is also one of the most advanced automobile plants in the world. It is more automated than many of Ford's U.S. factories, and leaner and more flexible than any other Ford facility. It can produce five different vehicle platforms at the same time and on the same line.

Ford sources said it is the sort of plant the company wants in the United States, were it not for the United Auto Workers, which has historically opposed such extensive supplier integration on the factory floor. . .
