Car sales are up, consumer confidence is up, investor confidence is up. Businesses are excited about the upcoming Republican sweep of Congress and governorships. The climate is good for an economic recovery with the Republicans having a say in government.

That's very true...

as even ford was just been given giant tax breaks by the state taxpayers and enables it to gloat a little more...

and don't forget that it's gm and chrysler who are still on bailouts and spending the taxpayers money to gloat...

while spending their money on crap.

Very true ... But don't let's not lump Ford in with the losers at GM and Chrysler who took taxpayer money to bail out their overpaid unions.

Only Ford deserves buyers for their cars going forward as the others had to cheat the system and the American public just to stay in business. If GM and Chrysler didn't make bad cars in the first place, they would never would have had this problem!

I think you're right but lets not forget who it really is that cheated...

because ford only operates with tax breaks...

and as everyone knows that 45% or more of car sales to the other 2 goes to the Fed and to rentals in a quarter...

so who else would really buy such union made, over valued crap with such low sticker prices as it's all at taxpayers expense...

and while the other 2 are still spending the bailout money to spiff up their appearances...

and as far as they could care it's all a lose to the taxpayer...

not to them.

At the same time...

it's that communist party uaw who is latched on for the free ride to all 3 American car company's.

That plus Toyota always pays its own way...

while 2/3's of the American auto companies are still spending bailout money...

considered as a loss to the taxpayer.

It's too bad jj that you aren't included as either one.

Huh...

you're mixed up yourself there jj...

ford is a real company using tax breaks to expand while the other 2 are on bailouts and have no money of their own to spend on anything...

that and the communist party uaw who assembles their cars with parts made in china and mexico only represent itself...

and in no way has anything to do with the American worker or labor...

it's only a special interest group in politics.

Speaking of clueless...

I think what wifey meant was that by being on welfare you are neither a buyer or a taxpayer...

and that you must be very self-convincing while looking in the mirror.

After investing all of its own money into Mexico, Canada, and China.....GM finally decides to spend the taxpayer bailout money on some old crusty Midwest factories as ruse.

You got it...

and the ruse is that communist party uaw who assembles those parts has some fooled into thinking they represent the American worker as a labor union...

but in fact they are nothing more than another special interest group who wants to spend the bailout money on themselves...

and I don't think that many taxpayers like their money being burned away like that very much...

even if the social democrats seem to.

That's very true...

but I don't see any Hyundai's on the top 10 list anywheres...

as Camry then Accord win over them all.

As a matter of fact...

there are more 3 Toyota and 2 Honda's on the top 10 list and that's more than any others.
