Did it ever occur to you that GM's stock price fell because the government made them make crap cars like the Chevy Volt? lol. So if only that meddling government hadn`t bankrupted those auto companies they`d have been fine? Maybe you should do a little research first. The reason they had problems initially was because they focused on gas-guzzling SUVs and trucks due to the relatively high profit margins of those models at the time. Then the energy crisis happened in 2003, the price of fuel skyrocketed, and people started buying less of them, and then their debt overwhelmed them. The government was actually the voice of reason telling them to make models that are better on gas. Geez you can be thick-headed.

patchgrabber: Did it ever occur to you that GM's stock price fell because the government made them make crap cars like the Chevy Volt? Guess not, after all, you`re one of those people that thinks the government does things better than private enterprise.
HG: The government owns and runs many companies that are in bankruptcy, including stock in GM and Chrysler.
Benghazi was not a non-story, Obama sat there and watched the attack on TV from an overhead drone as our ambassador Chris Stevens died.
You constantly defend Obama because of your politics. Don`t blame me for your non-criticism of him.

"Sometimes you have to actually read a whole news article"
I read every word of articles before I post them. One guy speaking in hypotheticals about ideal situations does not equate to "GM has tried repeatedly to buy back it's stock from the government" which is what you said.
You like to blame everything on Bush, even now. Nothing can be Obama's fault in your eyes.
1. I do blame bush a lot. Because it is true: tinyurl.com/apneffn
Just to reiterate I voted for Bush the first time. He was atrocious and that isn`t a biased opinion.
2. There are lots of things Obama has done that I don`t like and lots of things I want him to do that he hasn`t done.
The problem is we never have those conversations because you guys say things like we are becoming socialist without giving a SINGLE example of a company that the government bought under Obama. Or sensationalizing non-stories like benghazi. Or attacking Obama for things Bush did or initiated or caused, like GM bailouts or unemployment.
