Obama stated his stimulus created 150K jobs. Why did he kill 100K jobs at auto dealers?
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090613/ap_on_re_us/81_years_of_cars The National Automobile Dealers Association estimates the GM and Chrysler dealer closings will wipe out more than 100,000 jobs; the average wage is between $45,000 and $55,000 a year. Brilliant move Obama!!!! If Obama didn't step in, they would have been bankrupt and the assets and factory's sold off to buyers. Penske bought Saturn. I am sure if they would have put the pieces for sale, someone would have bought them.

They were bankrupt, and probably would have lost far more jobs, as well as America losing it's last manufacturing base, without Obama's intervention.

Nothing that Obama states is factual. He will say whatever he needs to appease the 35% of this nation who still believe him.

Because the people who make 50 to 60K didn't vote for him so they don't matter.

Obama is the Messiah. He can do whatever He wants. His Supporters are Bowing Down and Bending Over as we speak. How cool is that?

The only jobs created are temporary government jobs, and God only knows how many of those positions will be filled by illegal aliens since there are no provisions against it.
