uhh...
This was a business decision made in Chrysler's court case in bankruptcy.
And if people maybe bought a few more cars that their own country made...maybe we wouldn't be in such dire automotive straits.....

Sure, blame Obama.... wasn't the economic model so revered by Republicans which caused the demise of all the US automakers?

How do you explain that ONLY the automakers which built BIG SUVs and very inefficient cars are the ones which failed?

Sure. Bush and his oil industry friends created this huge mess and now you blame Obama for saving Chrysler?!?!

I thought free-market economics were supposed to "take care of things", take care of humanity.... yeah, right!

One of the dealers on the list, is owned and operated by a woman, runs a non-union shop (but matches and equals all union pay, just tried over all the years to keep extra bucks out of useless slobs hands)...yet the CATA Pres. and his shack of a rented bldg gets to stick around? This was crap and politics as usual...CHANGE HAS ARRIVED! YIPPEEEEE! Obama/Jeb 2012!

I dont know about you guys, but when I grew up my father would NEVER let anyone with a foreign car park in his drive way. If you have a foreign car, you must park in the street, and he lives on a major highway with no street parking lololol Go dad!!! I was raised to buy American (what you can still buy American anyways) and I strive to pass this on to my children. PS I also have a no foreign parking restriction at my house it embarasses my kids friends if they come over in a Hundai, but if thier parents had no sense to tell them, my kids will =)
