Deja Vu with the Chrysler/Fiat thing?

If it's not too much trouble, if you are interested in the Chrysler/Fiat deal, you may want to check out our comments back on January 23 when we described the deal as a give away and now, it's being aided and abetted by the President of the United States who insists they go through with this deal! Perhaps there are details that have changed since then, but if so, they are not being made public. It is just so sad to see this happening in broad daylight--Highway robbery.

So the Prez is back from his jaunt across Europe and the mid-East. Frankly, I'm not sure what we have to show for it. At least it was probably cheaper for us than the Clinton's trip to China with his 900+ friends.

So is North Korea quaking in their boots because Obama is a strongman? Are the Chinese going to get tough with them at Obama's request? What is the result of more words uttered throughout the trip? Oh yeah, 3000 support staff military to mark time until the August elections--then they can go back home. And by the way, we won't need to spend as much on inventory of nukes 'cuz we won't have as many. That ought to make us feel real good and safe on top of it all.

He did say something about misbehaving countries who when (not if) they engage in nuclear proliferation we need to be ready because they will have to "face the consequences." A scolding, perhaps?

Why, Bless his heart. He cain't he'p it. He just doesn't know any better. There, does that make us feel better?

God bless.........

I remember what you wrote-

"No wonder the American public has little confidence in our government!"

If there is any possibility at all that Fiat will join with Chrysler/Cerberus ifthe government gives them another $3 billion while they give only their "expertise" in small car design in exchange for 35% of the company, we are justified. Then, if they "perform" as contracted, they will be able to buy another 20% (giving them control) for $25 million. (And does anyone remember that Cerberus put up $60 billion for their present position?)
