Obama’s “signature achievement” could be heading for bankruptcy again

Not only does Obama portray the GM bailout as a great success, he has actually said, in public, that he wants a lot more “successes” just like it. “I said I believe in American workers, I believe in this American industry, and now the American auto industry has come roaring back,” he told an audience in Colorado last week. “Now I want to do the same thing with manufacturing jobs, not just in the auto industry, but in every industry.” – Human Events

As such, it appears that either a respected reporter or Mr. Bloom’s former boss in the Obama Administration have both given inaccurate accounts of Mr. Bloom’s comments to the public, or his testimony before Congress was not completely truthful.

President Obama’s phony accounting on the auto industry bailout – lies, lies and damn lies

“What we found is one of the most misleading collections of assertions we have seen in a short presidential speech. Virtually every claim by the president regarding the auto industry needs an asterisk, just like the fine print in that too-good-to-be-true car loan.” -Washington Post

Big Government Motors Big Failure

The bottom line is that GM and Chrysler still owe the government a great deal of money, and it is far from clear that they will be able to repay it all. As long as the prospect of large losses for taxpayers loom in the distance, it is impossible to say that the jobs saved didn’t come at the expense of other jobs.

Taxpayer losses from bailing out Chrysler and General Motors may reach $34 billion but that doesn’t stop GM from giving your money away to groups like the Crongressional Black Caucus.

Gov’t Motors’ Electric Edsel

This is a car mandated by environmental elitists and government command-economy bureaucrats at the expense of taxpayers who won’t buy the car but will be taken for a ride anyway. It will not pull us out of the economic ditch we’re in. – IBD

Was White House pushing Toyota witch hunt to pump up GM, Chrysler?

In this ‘transparent’ administration the DOT is hiding information on Toyota safety records. Is this to help the government bailout auto companies increase sales to make the White House payoff of union autoworkers look good?
