    You know, now Obama's statement that he wants to do for all industries what he did for the automobile industry makes perfect sense!

    Any surprise here? My old man was telling me years ago his screwed gm was. They had some accounting scheme where one part if the business sold the manufactured car to the other at a couple thousand dollar loss. The second company would then sell to the public, and earnings were based off that. No surprise. What have they brought to market lately (aside from a rc car with a built in generator? That's the best they could do? Lol.)?

    On top of that the feds buy GM cars for their different department fleets to jack up GM's sales.
    How come they don't buy from ford? Ford never took a dime from the feds.Ford is basically punished by Obamas government for not taking money.
    Ford made the tough choices and improved their product, and are punished by the Obamas. Very unAmerican.

    Thats whats called government picking winners and losers in the private sector.
    Or what democrats always seem to do. Reward failure and punish success.
    Isn't GM expected to donate to Obama? Of course. Thats called crony capitalism. You know the thing democrats are supposed to hate.

    You have no idea of how bid processes work for local, state and federal purchases..

    Don't let these figures dissuade you from your lies..

    But you posed the question as to why they did not buy from Ford, and when told that they did buy from them in fact they were the top seller to the Government.. you come back with three right wing blogs to prove your point.

    What happened to Ford the "victim company"???

    From your highly regarded an biased article..

    Of course you understand fleet sales include state, local, company and rental car companies.. they are not exclusive to the federal government. There is no mention of the federal government..

    Duped again, eh????

    Would also assume that you would want the government to buy cars from american owned car companies (Chevy Volt) vs. a foreign owned car company (Nissan Leaf).. but you never quite understand what they are thinking..
