    If that's socialism then we need more of it.

    I don't see many Libs talk about the Ford bailout as much as they talk about
    the bailout for GM...

    I wonder why that is? :razz:

    Corporate Welfare is nothing to celebrate. Shame on you OWS/Democrat hypocrites. :(

    And I don't see the neo-cons talking about the bailout Reagan gave Chrysler in the 80's either.

    I wonder why that is?

    There's a difference between saving a business that would have had a devastating impact on an already failing economy and bribing a business to relocate (or stay) in a particular city or state. Bribery adds or subtracts nothing to the nation as a whole, only local tax payers.

    Yeah, you're right. And actually Carter and Congress didn't actually "bail them out". They merely guaranteed the loans.

    My bad. :redface:

    Uh sure, nice spin. It's Bullshit spin though. Corporate Welfare is wrong when both Democrats and Republicans do it. You're an Obama-Bot, therefore you're spinning this particular Corporate Welfare Bailout. It really is very dishonest & hypocritical. So shame on you OWS/Democrats.
