Why do you think the stock market is up? Because people sink their monies into the stock market because their not spending their money on new businesses or new jobs because they don't trust Obama's economy.
Why is it the responsibility of the government of the United States of America to bailout a privately owned company? then.......
Cash for clunkers....why is it the responsibility of the american taxpayers to help people buy a car.
and now all you weirdo liberals want the United States government to send your kids to college.
all you weirdo liberals want the government to pay for your medical expenses.
Most of these things are YOUR responsibilities as Americans and as human beings.
Keep in mind...that the health care program is now considered a tax...and the government can raise that tax anytime it wants.
The government over the last 100 years has done nothing but tax you and then waste your money...that's all they do. Obama has been the worst...with the worst results.
"all you weirdo liberals want the government to pay for your medical expenses."

Tell me, do you plan on using Medicare? Because you'll take out of Medicare many times what you put in; that means that the government will be paying for YOUR medical expense.

Pot...meet kettle.

Governor Christie has nothing but praise for how Obama has handled this disaster:

And, who could blame him? It has been a flawless response. It restores my faith in government after that miserable failure by George Bush during Katrina.

Can anyone imagine being one of the Americans in Libya getting raped and tortured and knowing that help is only an hour away, waiting for that help that never comes, because the Liar in Chief Obama is getting ready for Vegas. Just picture failure Obama watching as over 30 Americans in Libya are in harms way and Obama watches and decided to let them be killed. That is the pathetic excuse we have as a President.

Speaking of help only being an hour away, can you believe how fast FEMA has reacted to this under Obama?

Like lightning! Where is Mitt, by the way? No statement? No nothing...that's what you get from Mitt; no plan, no nothing.

Wait...maybe he's waiting for the private sector to come to the rescue!

What exactly has Obama done?
When Hurricane Katrina hit the gulf coast, the Governor of Louisiana never called the president for help....The president of the United States cannot send in federal agencies to Louisiana or any other state without a governor requesting it....that's not me talking...that's the law. When the gov of Louisiana, a democrat finally did seek federal help, the president acted.
As of this very second I have not seen one single thing Obama has done concerning Hurricane Sandy (Category 1, sissy hurricane I might add)..as of right now, Obama has done nothing...just like the BP oil spill....nothing.
Just like Syria....nothing
Just like Iran...nothing
Just like N.Korea...nothing

Well, see if you can follow along:
Automakers employ many thousands of Americans, and those Americans pay a lot of taxes and spend their salaries in their communities. The businesses to which they give their salary pay taxes on that revenue, as well. Now, If the Automaker disappears, those people become a burder on the taxpayer; which means that they being taking from the government rather than giving to it...see where I'm going with this?

Now, as to your question about helping people buy a car. If more people buy a new car, that supports more jobs in the auto-industry the auto-finance industry, and many other collateral businesses. Once again, those employees pay taxes, send their kids to college, and spend their salary in their communities.
Obama saved the auto industry and all of the money has been paid back, American cars now compete with their foreign counterparts, and we saved thousands of jobs.
So should the government bailout every company in any community that is failing?
and your also mistaken...Obama never bailout the auto industry...he bailed out their union pension plans after GM robbed the pension plans just like Enron did.
It's not the responsibility of the United States to bailout any privately owned company. If Remington Arms fails, and the entire Mohawk Valley pretty much depends on Remington Arms...do you really think that idiot Obama will bailout Remington Arms.Yahoo just laid off 3000 people, why didn't Obama bailout yahoo.Why isn't Obama bailing out or helping the struggling airlines? Why isn't Obama bailing out or helping family run mom and pops stores?...because General Motors helped Obama get elected and he was paying them back with your hard earned tax dollars.....and by the way...the people that owned GM stock...lost their value of that stock and got ripped off by Obama when the Govt bought up the stock.

Do I really have to answer that question? Are you being deliberately or genuninely obtuse?

Obama should not - and did not - bail out "every company". This was an intelligent, calculated risk that paid off by saving thousands of American jobs and the American auto industry as a whole.

This took vision and guts, and it worked.

Would you have rather had the Chinese purchase the dying remains of GM and run it here in America? Of course you would, because you're no patriot, you're just another greed globalist who believe that corporation are people (to quote Mitt Romney).

You wrote that "the people that owned GM stock...lost their value of that stock and got ripped off by Obama when the Govt bought up the stock."

Wait a minute...did I just read a post by a republican who is decrying the free-market and market-risk? Wow, note the date and time!

See, this is what makes me laugh...you dye-in-the-wool capitalists want everything to be about risk and the free-market...until things go badly for you, then you run crying to the government to make things right.

GM was bankrupt and waving goodbye at the pier; those investors were going to lose their money either way...Obama saved the company and thousands of jobs.

So, George Bush was sitting by the phone waiting for a call in order to help? LMAO...you're precious.

You don't the law very well, do you? The President - through Executive Order - can send assistance into any state he wants if human life is at risk. How do you think Kennedy send troops into Selma Alabama?

Learn the law before you quote it.

Obama in response to the hurricane states he no longer cares about the election, he is commander in chief first and the safety of our people is more important.

Romney, steeps himself in press meetings causing controversy and lying ads about jeep leaving us which isn't true.

I think we see the real leader of the country....

Yep - clear as a bell - right down the Euro-socialist road to a second-rate economy and fiscal ruin.

Right down the road to Greece or Spain.

This is America. You want a Euro-socialist Nanny-state?

You're seriously trying to counter the poster's advocacy for self-reliance in making provision for one's lifetime medical needs by trotting out a Democrat Ponzi Scheme (Medicare) as some kind of refutation or counter-argument??

You use terms like "socialism" as though you understand what they mean.

The government doesn own, run or control the auto industry...THAT would be socialism. Instead, the government made and "investment" in the future of the American autoworker.

Maybe you should find an easier-to-understand concept to argue about.

Wow, Obama made a phone call in 4 years and now he has done something good? LOL

The Americans in Libya called him over 3 times and Obama watched them being killed and did nothing.
