    Waiting patiently for the mass exodus of truth & logic from the right-wing FoxBot drones after the election when Obama soundly drubs Romney. The conspiracy theories alone will be better than anything on TV...

    exactly why I would never buy a GM again - I will not support a socialist gov`t practice like a bail out, real capitalism would allow a failed company to fail.

    @turdy-b: I almost got to be a Mod, but another Mod came out of semi-retirement insted. Probably for the better!

    @jendrain: Thanks! It`s similar to many funny videos about anti-Bush from his term. I laughed at those just as much! (not made by this group of course)

    @tseimens: Exactly! If proper LEGAL procedures had been followed, it wouldn`t have been too much worse, taxpayers wouldn`t have paid so much AND investors and credit holders wouldn`t have been F`D over!
    Sure it would have been rough, but HUNDREDS of other huge companies have been though it and prospered, without the taxpayer footing the bill...

    What is it about economics that confuses people so much ?.. Bailing out GM was obviously the best thing to do. That, along with the wall street bail outs is what kept the economic downturn from becoming a full on depression. It may not be perfect capitalism, but it`s by far the best course of action, both for the economy and for society as a whole. It`s not that hard to understand.

    Some fact checking is in order here:

    On December 19, 2008, Bush approved a loan to GM and Chrysler totalling $13.4B. On March 30, 2009, GM asked Obama for more and he said NO. They subsequently declared Chapter 11. On April 21, 2010, GM announced it had repaid the loan with interest. GM had $40B cash in hand at the time.

    This in no way turned out bad for the government, and Obama had little to do with it, other than not risk more of the government`s money.

    @Nageki: Lookie Here Y`all

    And don`t spam the boards, k-thx.

    @doug1963: Sweet Mother Of Jesus! How much WRONG can you get in one post!!!

    Wiki Says: GM Bailout

    Bush sent money from TARP. As a `lame duck` Obama had to re-approve this once he too office.
    March 30 2009: Obama gave them 60 more days to come up with a plan, he didn`t say "NO!"

    Under Obama`s plan, GM got whacks of taxpayer money!
    "A White House report sent to Congress in August 2012 estimated the sale of the remaining G.M. stock acquired by the United States Treasury during the company`s bankruptcy will result in a loss of $25.1 billion to the American taxpayer"

    It wasn`t "a loan" he just handed over piles of cash! Oh, in exchange for "stocks" which were bought at MASSIVELY inflated prices...
    And the White House illegally circumvented the LAW to allow GM to `shaft` it`s stock and credit holders, while giving the Unions ALL they were due...
    GM used that FREE MONEY to "repay" TARP.
    Yes, that`s correct: GM used government grants to repay it`s goverment TARP loan...

    Edumicate yourself, plz!

    5Cats: GM has been wanting to buy back that government owned stock for over year. Obama won`t allow the sale. Why? Because with that much stock the government has a seat at GM`s board, has a say in what cars are made, how they negotiate with unions and how they run their business.

    Bailouts are a terrible idea. Specially when a company has been around as long as GM and has made enough profit to keep the business a float through years of not selling anything. Of course that would mean not dividing the profit every quarter so the company doesn`t go bankrupt from a bad year. If they can`t manage their own business that`s their problem, shouldn`t be the tax payers problem. Just my two cents on it.
