    If I have to hear left-wingers touting the “success” of the auto bailout one more time, I might as well toss a chair through my window. It’s patently false to say that the auto bailout was a success. Furthermore, it was more of an United Auto Workers UNION BAILOUT than it was for the auto industry. As Amy Payne of Heritage wrote back in June:

    However, let’s focus on the China element for a second. Obama claims that Mitt Romney and the Republicans are complicit in the evil dynamics of OUTSOURCING. I don’t think liberals read Forbes much, but Paul Roderick Gregory wrote back in August 12 that:

    Concerning claims that millions would have lost their jobs through the bankruptcy process, Sherk and Zywicki aptly conclude that ”General Motors and Chrysler would have had no difficulty filling entry-level positions even though they paid less than transplant automakers,” even under the threat of a strike, which wasn’t in the works in 2009. It’s all nonsense. Barack Obama and the Democrats needed to keep their parasitic allies in big labor happy at the expense of the American taxpayer. I know this is old history, but until the media and folks on our side have the gumption to say that the bailout was a horrible episode of government intervention– we should keep on hammering away at this. After all, it will probably be brought up in the debates.

    Mr. President, stop saying “I am GM, hear me roar!” The facts just don’t support your narrative.

    GM is alive and thriving. Bin Laden is dead and rotting.

    you and Ms. Malkin need to get over it.

    Ask yourself this question, "Is the UAW better off now than it was 4 years ago?"

    So when reagan bailed out auto makers in the 80's it was okay to support union jobs, since the unions backed him for president?

    Woweeeee.

    Senior Secured Creditors did not get fucked over by Reagan, neither did the UAW get equity in the company they were bankrupting...

    and the loan was fully repaid and not by borrowing more from the government

    He is also Chrysler. I take pride that for a short time we were part owners of Ferrari.

    If GM was allowed to go bankrupt the taxpayers would not be on the hook.......the union would have had to take a haircut instead.....
