I almost saved this for the "Friday Funnies" but then realized that Michael Moore doesn't think he's being funny. The sad turd-sicle actually thinks he's is being intelligent and witty when talking about the death of General Motors.
The reality is, Mr. Moore, it was union-pushing maggots like yourself that helped to kill the General. When GM could not compete with the higher quality of the Japanese rivals, the unions were the ones primarily to blame. People like yourself and the union stooges you support actually pushed through a tariff on foreign cars in the early '80s after it became evident that American-built cars were going to be in trouble. So the foreign companies started making the cars here to get around that tariff. They paid their workers a fair wage, but said "No" to the UAW and were thus able to save a great deal of money. In the end, the American-built "foreign" cars still ended up costing more than the American makes (some of which ended up being made in Canada or Mexico) and people still flocked to them--Honda and Toyota never had to offer cash-back incentives until the last year or two when everyone started having trouble.
As far as "building cars people want," who does Mr. Moore think he's kidding? As soon as gas prices went up, people bought smaller, more fuel-efficient cars. As soon as the prices fell again, they flocked back to mid-sized SUVs, making the Ford Explorer one of the top sellers for 2008 (in a year that became synonymous with $4/gallon gas). In Moore's dream, some Obamite bureaucrat will decide the cars people want to buy--or, more accurately, the cars you will buy!!!
It is a sad day for America when one of our mightiest companies fall victim to the faltering economy, but let's not be fooled about what caused this or the culprits most to blame. GM's management has not done themselves any favors for years, but the unions and their craven lickspittle's, like Micheal Moore, were and remain the real problem.
