I love how Government Motors may use our tax money.  They’ll save GM jobs (ahem) by using our tax money in some unspecified way and importing Chinese autos.

It's a big picture... click it.

DETROIT (AP) – As thousands of General Motors workers await word on more U.S. plant closures, reports that the company plans to import Chinese-made vehicles to the U.S. have created a political problem for the automaker and the White House.

The reports, which GM will neither confirm nor deny, could mean trouble because GM is supported by $15.4 billion in U.S. government loans, largely due to the Obama administration’s desire to preserve the company’s 90,000 U.S. jobs.

If you’re going to save GM, SAVE IT.  Don’t go throwing that money to China, OK?  I know several GM workers that would give their left leg to negotiate a way to even retain some smaller fraction of their job/wages, as long as they had one at all.

Innocent people don’t implode – not at her level.   She’s way too wobbly to have been a “victim” of misinformation.

As a co-worker, The Butcher of Lansing, said:

I don’t know if they just think this is all a big party or if the press just has no respect for Gibbs. Either way, it’s hard to take the White House seriously when this kind of thing goes on.

He was referring to the White House Press Corps who seem to be a bunch of adolescents with little or no professionalism, wanting to talk to their little friends while the grownups have grownup meetings.   Supposed grownup meetings.

My take?

Lack of respect for Gibbs wouldn’t do it. I mean, I respect Gibbs about as much as the average flatworm.

Egocentrism.  Egocentrism would explain it.  Hubris.  Perhaps a pinch of narcissism.  And a dash of cretinism.   And no maturity whatsoever.
