We All Fall Down

GM is running a commercial regarding their financial collapse, the government bailout and their recent success.

The right has their undies in a bundle about it, but to be perfectly honest, I don't see what the big deal is. The commercial shows various footage clips of things going bad, and then getting better. They end the ad with a simple thank you. How in the world is that offensive? Here's the ad:

What do you think?


  1. the right is just wrong

  2. I'm just glad Ford was able to prosper in spite of it's government helping it's competition.

    Some corporations good, some corporations better. So much for equality, eh?

  3. I'm just glad Ford was able to prosper in spite of it's government helping it's competition

    "We are acutely aware that our domestic competitors are, by their own reporting, at risk of running out of cash in a matter of weeks or months. Our industry is an interdependent one. We have 80 percent overlap in supplier networks. Nearly 25 percent of Ford’s top dealers also own GM and Chrysler franchises. That is why the collapse of one or both of our domestic competitors would also threaten Ford."

  4. GM was just about the only bailout recipient to spend the money in the way it was supposed to AND pay it back...and I guess the fact that they employ the working class on top of all that is enough to bundle some republicans undies!

  5. The right invested a great deal of time and energy convincing the flock that government intervention in the marketplace was akin to heresy. GM's success is viewed a lousy return on investment.
