That is correct, so GM is an innocent party, as the federal government was the only creditor available on the planet, and we see how our Imperialist in office did his special version of a government bankruptcy.. GM will forever be falsely marred, due to Obama's actions. Can you imagine that if the government had just lent money, and GM was now reporting payments back every quarter, how GM's PR would be much better? It is what it is, but GM is a great company and their new model launches have been outstanding. GM and Ford are now gaining market share against their Japanese counterparts after losing share steadily over the last few decades.

Right! The largest auto manufacturer in the Untied States shouldn't be here! LOL. Now, Obama is another matter, as he forced GM into his own version of a bankruptcy. He actually took an equity stake in the company, and promptly sold his equity prematurely, costing us over $10 Billion. It is Obama that should not exist! GM(and Chrysler) was just caught with a lack of proper amount of liquidity when the financial collapse hit, leaving our government as the only creditor on the planet. Obama handled that very selfishly and poorly.

I just got this from LanguageMan: "Thought you might like to know. Our mutual friend, Dennis, 1cheapgasin from Indianapolis Gas Prices is no longer with us. He passed away yesterday afternoon about 3:30. He had double pneumonia, blood clots, and 2 fungus in his lungs. His wife Jane informed me. Forgive me if I don't write much. He was one of my better friends from here and in life. He was a REAL GOOD guy. I will miss him. Martin"
