    I think that it gives the company a small bit of accountability in the short-term. Americans' views of American automakers has been soured as of late (because quite honestly, people were NOT thinking about the automakers like they have been until recently), and by removing Wagoner, it will give some form of change to the public.

    With all due respect to Wagoner, he WAS moving forward with a new UAW deal and a product-focused vehicle lineup, but was dealt an incredibly poor hand last summer when oil spiked and the company was forced to right ship very quickly.

    We all need to be very afraid when our government dictates who's running our corporations and what they are to do. When was the last time you saw our government turn a profit . We're going right past Socialism directly to Communism! Can someone explain to me why the bank CEO's are still in place when they caused this mess along with our government that is now telling the auto companies what they should be doing???

    So now that the Auto makers refused the new deal, does Wagoner get his job back???

    And why did he get forced out if AIG is still run by the same ass clowns?????

    Thomas Jefferson said "....if your government is large enough to give you all you want, it's also large enough to take it all away...."

    Now I'm getting letters that the current powers that be want to take away my right to own a hand gun. They say it will help protect the rest of the public if there are no guns. Who's going to protect us from the government is my question.

    AIG's CEO was removed last fall when the government stepped in. Their current CEO is working for a $1 a year (basically public service) and was not with the company when the bonus agreements were made.

    Next the government is going to tell them which vehicles they can and can't build. "Mother Russia" is looking better all the time.

    We are getting closer and closer to "Mother Russia" with our government stepping as much as they have.
