Yeah, but if you look at the GM Facility Map they're mostly in blue states (this election, anyway).

Republican Senators and Congressmen really are despicable people.

Amy Walters was on The News Hour and told us that Obama won 80 House districts formerly won by Bush, while McCain won only 5 won by Kerry. The Republican House members who are left are the most conservative of the bunch. If Obama tries to be bipartisan with that crowd he's gonna have to lean so far right he'll tip over.


Y'know, I'm a union man. I belong to more unions than my dad did and my dad was a lifelong construction worker.

Unions paid for my dental care, my medical care, my eyecare. They helped with my education. They helped my dad find work when he was laid off.

Unions gave my mom and dad pensions when he retired. Pensions. Guaranteed payments for life. My mom or dad wasn't worried when the stock market collapsed. They knew the union pension was going to save their bacon.

They didn't have to watch their 401(k) dwindle along with the rest of the money in the nation, draining away to, well, someone's pocket.

We need unions. We need MORE unions. Period.

You're right. But this also gives them the chance to sell Chrysler to China and bail out their buddies at Cerberus.
