Do You Subscribe to Obama's rationale?
We take no view on whether the administration’s efforts on behalf of the automobile industry were a good or bad thing; that’s a matter for the editorial pages and eventually the historians. But we are interested in the facts the president cited to make his case.
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.

Obama would get more respect if he admitted~ he tried with new policy ideas and they were not as successful as he hoped...
He sure would. Just like Weiner...people understand mistakes and appreciate honesty. Ignoring what went wrong just for arguements sake perpetuates shitty policies and unsuccessful strategies. As a detroiter i supported the auto bailout but wouldn't consider it a gleaming success and can't pretend that it benefited the entire nation. Sure, things for the automakers & manufacturing communities aren't as bad as they could have been but they aren't exactly great.
