    And you Republicans say that no one wants to buy American. Why do you hate America and American workers so much? Over half the cars sold in America are made by the Big 3. Stop wishing America and Obama will fail. Its sad. :(

    Ford Motor Co., the healthiest of Detroit's auto makers, scored a small victory, outselling Toyota Motor Co. for the first time in at least a year as the Japanese auto maker's sales fell even more preciptiously than those of its U.S. rival.

    Your headline is a bit misleading. Both companies sales are down. How is that a good thing? And you want to give credit for poor business numbers to your Dear Leader?

    And finally, could you refresh our memories as to how much Bailout money Ford Motor Company took from the gubamint?

    Mad Scientist beat me to the punch:

    "Toyota saw a 42% decline in April, while Ford's U.S. sales fell 32%."

    Yippee!!!!!

    What's wrong with Toyota? They don't have unions. :lol:

    What's wrong with the broke asses that work for Toyota?

    Now maybe you see why it is important to pay American workers a decent wage. If you pay them $15 an hour, they won't be able to afford your cars.

    I guess Toyota's aren't that much cheaper or better if they are losing sales so rapidly.

    And FUCK giving them a bailout. They can ask Japan or China or wherever they come from for the money.

    What's wrong with Toyota? Nothing. Their profit margins are much greater than Ford's. Sure, they sold a few thousand less cars, but the number is still huge.

    It's amazing how you come up with the crap you post. Do you have 'crap response generator' program?
