Hey you guys left out the most important part of the story. Why is GM going down the tubes? Obama allowed the union obligations to survive bankruptcy where secured bond holders were given 10 cent on the dollar. This effectively wiped out 200 years of bankruptcy law and doomed GM to a longer death spiral. GM was left with what got it into trouble financially in the first place. Lack of business experience is what I suspect on Obamas part and he lacked an understanding of the law.
GM should have reorganized, got out from under Unions grip and GM would have been a strong company going forward.

GM is once again flirting with bankruptcy despite massive government purchases propping up its sales figures. GM stock is rock-bottom.
