Bin Laden is dead GM is alive....................

The vehicles were among 7.55 million in the U.S. in GM's June 30 announcement of six recalls. Seems to me like it would have been cheaper to just buy Bin Laden a GM vehicle and leave it outside his compound like a Trojan horse.

GM screwed up on the ignition switches and is now being EXTREMELY cautious by recalling anything else they can think of.

There's a lot more issues out there lurking to bite the other automakers in the ass. They're not all safety-related, either.

How soon we forget Toyota's "unintended acceleration" and braking issues... leave it up to Fred and his fellow Republicans to defecate all over an American company and American jobs.

Is Chrysler an "American company"? Is the Honda plant in Ohio creating "American jobs"?

Just trying to keep my union lackey distinctions sorted out.

Where's the headquarters? Do the profits get shipped overseas to avoid taxes?

This will answer part of your question - On July 21, 2011, Fiat bought the Chrysler shares held by the United States Treasury.[40] With the purchase, Chrysler once again became foreign owned. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV, the company that will be formed from the combination of Fiat SpA (F) and Chrysler Group LLC, will be based in London, marginalizing Italy’s role for the automaker.

While Fiat Chrysler had long planned to have a fiscal domicile in the U.K. for tax purposes, it hadn’t selected a specific city. The manufacturer’s presence in the British capital will also be more than just a postal address.

“The board, my office and some of my functions need to operate out of London,” Chief Executive Officer Sergio Marchionne said during a press conference yesterday in Auburn Hills, Michigan.

It is true, much to the "Buy American" crowd's dismay, but Chrysler is now no different from Honda or Toyota. The company is foreign owned/headquartered with factories in the U.S. The next time you see one of those "Out of a Job Yet, Keep Buying Foreign" bumper stickers on a Chrysler/Jeep, you may want to point that out to the driver.

Also, Anonymouscoward might want to remember that it was President Obama who gave Chrysler to FIAT.

What, are you admitting that you wanted Obama to, dare I say, NATIONALIZE Chrysler rather than let the free market work? I didn't know you were a socialist! Oops, crap, I just spilled your dirty secret all over this here forum.

It's obvious to most of us that he was pointing out your proclivity for using Obama as an example of good leadership while excoriating Republicans in general and former President Bush. I'm sure he didn't mean that Obama should nationalize anything. You wanted to try to make a point about Chrysler being an American company, that got refuted so you jumped to this ignorant conclusion.

You need to apologize, Fred. I did not say anything about Chrysler. I did not "want to try to make a point about Chrysler being an American company". I didn't even assert that it was. You and your buddies Galt and Swampy jumped all over Chrysler. You need to man up right now and apologize for your own ignorant post attacking me.

Did I say or imply Chrysler is an "American" company.

NO.

Did you claim that I did?

YES.

Are you trying to weasel out of it?

YES.

Grow up and act your age. You're a disgrace to the conservative movement.

Who dat said you a disgrace to the conservative movement?

"DTOM" {1776} " We The People" {1791}

I'm not being facetious, but I am always interested in how people rationalize issues solely based on their political views.

Didn't Obama say that the bailout was supposed to save the American auto industry? Yet, he gave Chrysler to FIAT--an Italian company that was in dire financial shape.

The irony of all of this is that instead of FIAT producing more mini-cars for sale in the U.S. (as Obama wanted it to do), FIAT has gone the route of making more trucks and Jeeps. This is good for Toledo, but bad for Obama's environmentally correct supporters.

There were no "free market" factors involved in the government giving away Chrysler to FIAT--in fact, the government controlling the future of a company is "Socialism."
