The speech on MSNBC by the CEO of GM kept talking about "The New GM", and how we're all supposed to forgive and forget, and buy a GM car. Their recovery scenarios include a larger market share than they have now. But will GM be allowed to squander tax payer money on advertising?
The principal unchanging constant is the UAW. They stand, shoulder to shoulder, chins thrust out, arms folded. Their attitude is defiant, and their belief is that Obama "owes them!" There is no incentive here for a change in heart to put the buyers of the cars, whom they ultimately serve, at any higher priority. The company has been optimized to please the Union workers, not the customers.
Also, now that the Marxist progressives are now calling the shots, GM will be told to produce flimsy eco-friendly cars that are "good for the environment". Government entities will buy them, clebrities will buy them, and a program of social-intimidation will commence to badger people into accepting a vehicle which will be the 21st Century version of the East German Trabant.
At some point, the politically correct campaign to ram this UAW-government produced 'piece of sh##' down everyone's throat will collapse. Someone will dare say "The emperor has no clothes" !
