It's easy to see what Obama is up to. He had to eliminate these dealerships in order to make way for Chinese and Indian dealerships to move in. And the previous owners will be so desperate, they'll take anything in order to survive. Obama gets what he wants from the Chinese/Indians, the dealers will get to make money again (and will be forever grateful to Obama), Americans will be forced to purchase the Chinese/Indian crap because the big three and the Japanese will be able to make only so many and Obama will have succeeded in getting Americans in world class motorized roller skates he admires so much.

Americans are such dupes as we sit and watch Obama and his crew dismantle the U.S. and turn it subservient to the communists of China.

It's a shame to hear about Extreme Jeep. My Jeep was bought there, and serviced by them over the years.... it has over 253,000 miles on it, and still runs like a top! They're very nice people, and I wish them the best in these tough times, but I think we're all feeling the crunch to one extent or another.
