For John, BLUF: Ford Motors benefitted from GM $49.5 BILLION bailout. Apparently, car buyers like Ford's independence. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Over at the InstaPundit Professor Glenn Reynolds is sharing his blogging duties while on vacation(?). Here comes Mark Tapscott, at 10:57 AM, with a comment on the GM bailout.
FORD HELPED MOST BY GM, CHRYSLER BAILOUTS? Bet you didn’t see this coming! A new Rasmussen survey of consumer sentiment finds that a clear majority of those interviewed are more favorably disposed to buying a Ford product because the famous automaker did NOT go hat-in-hand to Washington for a bailout in 2008, as did General Motors and Chrysler. Since it’s about my two favorite issues, cars and politics, I, of course, have an opinion on these developments!The short post links to this Rasmussen Poll report.
"Bin Laden is dead and
GM is alive Ford prospered."
