Yer a strange one that's a fact Jack.. Maybe you better come back to the side you know.
At this point I don't think Obama could get a personal car loan from a used car dealer over in Indian Head.

Would give him 4,000 bucks?

Oh Indian Head is just south west of DC in case you ain't neva' been there.. There is a park with great big cannon set up there for the defense of DC in the 1860's.

What would President Obama need with a car loan? He has more than either one of us. He could buy cars for us if he wanted.

He should, to level the playing field...or, rather, the driving field...I hear GM isn't going to be able to pay the taxpayers back. Well, that's OK. How about giving each one of us a shiny new car as it rolls off the line. I'll call it "debt forgiven".

This is how I look at the bailout. The bailout was meant to keep GM afloat so that GM could hire more workers and help people keep their own jobs. I wasn't too thrilled about bailing out the big 3. However, this is the way I see it. If they had been allowed to go belly up, we would be talking about record unemployment rates. And it wouldn't just be Michigan that would get hit.

Yes I understand he gets 400,000+ and all TAX Free for life, but I still bet he couldn't get a used car salesman to float him a loan for 4000 dollar used car.


There is a point. There of course is no need........ The point is he isn't trust worthy...

Bailout was a poor way to handle it. Many good dealerships, with years of history in a community, were put out of business, and that means many jobs lost -- on a selective basis. Who is to say that a dealer with 40 years of success wouldn't have been the one to survive, if he hadn't been told to close his doors forever.

And now that GM is coming back - shouldn't some of those dealers be help too? We have one such dealer in our small town, whose showrooms look like empty warehouses. They're selling used cars now, and continuing with service work, and struggling. Ten people lost their jobs in a rural town, thanks to Obama's fascination with taxpayer funded bailouts.

What if the bailout had not been implemented at all?

The President does pay taxes on his income.
