woulda thought that would get a strong reaction here, unless everybody's still ashamed of the 45 mpg cars they failed to produce like the Japanese

I think there are actually plenty of people out there who have seen the auto industry be a real powerhouse in the past. For some it might be a sort of opportunity to get a little payback or a chance to get even.

Often there is no face on the human toll represented by this debacle. Its easy to say tough crap and etc.

Plus America loves to tear down the powerful and the high and mighty. Even when its themselves that they are hurting.

You might not like the way he said it, but he is correct in what he said. A significant majority of Americans polled oppose spending federal money to bail out auto makers.

Well then, here's hoping that majority of Americans buy a new Ford, since they aren't getting bailout money.

Unashamedly making the Fusion Hybrid which beats the Camry Hybrid in MPG (sorry, Flyingj)... and it's a nicer car.
