    Good article. This came from CNN?? I thought CNN was deep into Obamanomics ... etc. Nevertheless, we need more of this kind of stuff coming from all media sources.

    Don't drink the conservative kool aid when it comes to their approved media choices. they want you to listen to only them, and get the truth as they see it.

    So why is it that when I do watch Fox (which isn't that often), they always have a liberal on? Must be a figment of my imagination.

    Really, Jillian, I know that 'talking points' are easy but you're smarter than this.

    The problem for the right is they’re suffering from a boy who cried wolf syndrome – they’ve thrown so much crap against the wall the voters can’t tell what’s true and what’s contrived partisan hype.

    While I do not share most of the views of Barack Obama, I think some people forget several facts on the auto industry bail-out:

    1). The auto companies by their very own free will ran to the government for bail-out.

    2). Though I do not support bail-out of companies when existing laws have already made provisions for their problems, the fact remains that without the bail-out, thousands would have been out of work (though probably just temporarily).

    3). Because these companies where rescued with taxpayers monies, the government has every right to have them under tight reins until they have repaid taxpayers monies.

    I guess the auto companies and several people whining on this situation forget it is just not smart to run to the government for about anything, seeing you become more a ward and give up your right to your individuality. If you doubt me, then just talk to welfare recipients!
