Taxpayers took a bath so Obam could build cadillacs in China!

So,

The administration's move to bail out GM and give it to the unions, at a high cost to the taxpayer and ignoring standard bankruptcy procedures, results in cadillac producing their cars in China.

lol! New UAW hires get $13/hour. The union uniquely took it in the shorts. I guess that equates to Obama giving GM to the unions.

We're sunk. Americans hate each other so profoundly, we won't be satisfied until we see absolute devastation.

But everything's fine! Just go buy more chinese crap!

That's fine for them to sell them there. Normally it would be fine for them to build them there...however...in this case, the administration raped the american taxpayers under the guise of saving American jobs. Doesn't seem to be the case after all.

By the way, who do you mean by "you guys"?

I have no problems with them being sold or built in other countries ... what I do have a problem with is using tax payer money to save a company that sends jobs to other countries.

When will Obama just admit that "fundamentally changing" and "destroying" are the same things to him?

It was the fault of the unions asking for everything regardless of reality and management giving in to the unions demands. You combine that with other stupid management decisions and you end up with a company that is going to fail.
