to number 1, Dean - When did Americans ever say they were happy to bail out GM and Chrysler? I think it is the opposite.
Usually when the government has to bail the auto makers out is because they arent selling enough cars. Now if this was grains we would just say price is tooo high to sell. I feel it is no different with vehicles. The cash for clunkers is a fine example, once you take some 7-8 thousand dollars off the price tag all of a sudden you sell some its that simple. Car makers in this country I feel are on a dead end road unless they can some how lower prices.
Perhaps one of the people that work for them.
