    Let the government backup the warranties of auto manufacturers, gillotine the CEO’s and key exec’s and reorganize with a strategy and more aggressive management, to have less models, non-monster truck products and economic fuel-sensitive cars and people will buy them. Also go into bankruptcy with a pre-packaged approach which include these ideas and which break the legacy union wages and benefits and, as a lot of smart minds have posited, and they can work through this.

    The management flew into DC on their private jets and said “we dont need management changes, give us the money”. The union flew in on chartered jet and said “we dont need worker changes, give us the money”. With no changes, they will need more money in 3 months. Chapter 11 is the only way to rid us of these parasites.

    I wouldn’t buy a car from a bankrupt car maker. But I don’t think this is a decision that will have to get made. The politicians are not going to cut-off the hand that feeds them so well. Detroit and the UAW have been good to politicians. Detroit get the money they are asking for, if not now, then in January. Washington will just shake the feet of the taxpayer a little harder.

    But will Detroit turn into another AIG, continuing asking for ever more $$? Probably, but only time will tell.
