For good or ill, what Obama did for GM and Chrysler/Fiat was a one shot deal. It is not as if it were a continuing resolution. So, for what he did for them that One time, which saved more Union pensions than jobs, they are willing to force Obama on the entire country knowing we are going to hell in a hand basket under his wrongheaded leadership? And after they have
watched him depress jobs and pile debt on their very own unborn Grandchildren?
I don't think they were putting the country first!
