And what did I read about Obamas' next great leap forward? The bailouts worked so well for the auto industry, he wants to do it for ALL industries now! If he can get corporate America completely beholden to government, they will have no choice but to do the governments bidding every step of the way. Imagine a world where companies are told, by the government, who to hire and who to fire. This worker does not have the correct political orientation? Lay him or her off, and hire a party loyalist. Think this doesn't happen in socialist countries? Think again. The company will have a "Political Liasion" director that reports to the government on how the firm is adhering to the regimes dictates. They called them 'Commisars" in the Soviet Union!
