As you know, former Governor Mitt Romney and Bain Capital were successful in turning more than 70% of the companies in dire financial straits they bought. Those companies sought out Bain for help. Gov. Romney also left Bain in 1999 in order to rescue the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City Utah.

How many companies did President Barack Hussein Obama CLOSE just in the auto industry? Over a thousand privately owned car dealerships along with all their employees. Hummer, Pontiac, Saturn. Who owns Chrysler so how is that an American car company?

For a list of CLOSED dealerships. (Over 100 in Florida alone)

As for Bain, do you NEVER purchase a product from ANY of these companies?

The firm was founded in 1984 by partners from the consulting firm Bain & Company. Since inception it has invested in or acquired hundreds of companies including such notable companies as AMC Entertainment, Aspen Education Group, Brookstone, Burger King, Burlington Coat Factory, Clear Channel Communications, Domino's Pizza, Double Click, Dunkin' Donuts, D&M Holdings, Guitar Center, Hospital Corporation of America (HCA), Sealy, The Sports Authority, Staples, Toys "R" Us, Warner Music Group and The Weather Channel.

I can't remember the name of the company but they made warm winter clothing in the New England area. Anyway another recession hit and business wasn't so good but they didn't lay off any employees. They reduced wages I think but kept families together and came out of it in better shape when things picked up again. You think that didn't created employee loyalty?It was tough going in the short run but good in so many ways in the long run.
I think short term thinking is what many of the huge multinational guys just don't even consider. It is all about the bottom line for the coming quarter without concern or thought about the lives of the employees, long term negative effects on the environment, etc. that they just don't care about.

I was not aware that Obama closed any private dealerships. I always thought it was a financial decision made by the manufacturer i.e. GM, Ford Chrysler. I think that Markle knows this deep down but just don't want to admit it.

Actually, Romney comes from a long line of hucksters, which is a good description of both Joseph Smith and Brigham Young. All you really have to do is some basic research. Looks like Romney is the biggest huckster of them all. Markle is just trying to earn his keep.

As you know, he took over ownership of the companies.

We still have a huge interest in General Motors and Fiat now owns Chrysler. Does that now make it an Italian car company?

Here's an article from the Economist about the government and General Motors. It looks like the President did a very good job.

Government Motors no more
An apology is due to Barack Obama: his takeover of GM could have gone horribly wrong, but it has not
Aug 19th 2010 | from the print edition


AMERICANS expect much from their president, but they do not think he should run car companies. Fortunately, Barack Obama agrees. This week the American government moved closer to getting rid of its stake in General Motors (GM) when the recently ex-bankrupt firm filed to offer its shares once more to the public (see article).

Once a symbol of American prosperity, GM collapsed into the government's arms last summer. Years of poor management and grabby unions had left it in wretched shape. Efforts to reform came too late. When the recession hit, demand for cars plummeted. GM was on the verge of running out of cash when Uncle Sam intervened, throwing the firm a lifeline of $50 billion in exchange for 61% of its shares.

Many people thought this bail-out (and a smaller one involving Chrysler, an even sicker firm) unwise. Governments have historically been lousy stewards of industry. Lovers of free markets (including The Economist) feared that Mr Obama might use GM as a political tool: perhaps favouring the unions who donate to Democrats or forcing the firm to build smaller, greener cars than consumers want to buy. The label “Government Motors” quickly stuck, evoking images of clunky committee-built cars that burned banknotes instead of petrol—all run by what Sarah Palin might call the socialist-in-chief.

Yet the doomsayers were wrong. Unlike, say, France's President Nicolas Sarkozy, who used public funds to support Renault and Peugeot-Citroën on condition that they did not close factories in France, Mr Obama has been tough from the start. GM had to promise to slim down dramatically—cutting jobs, shuttering factories and shedding brands—to win its lifeline. The firm was forced to declare bankruptcy. Shareholders were wiped out. Top managers were swept aside. Unions did win some special favours: when Chrysler was divided among its creditors, for example, a union health fund did far better than secured bondholders whose claims should have been senior. Congress has put pressure on GM to build new models in America rather than Asia, and to keep open dealerships in certain electoral districts. But by and large Mr Obama has not used his stakes in GM and Chrysler for political ends. On the contrary, his goal has been to restore both firms to health and then get out as quickly as possible. GM is now profitable again and Chrysler, managed by Fiat, is making progress. Taxpayers might even turn a profit when GM is sold.

So was the auto bail-out a success? It is hard to be sure. Had the government not stepped in, GM might have restructured under normal bankruptcy procedures, without putting public money at risk. Many observers think this unlikely, however. Given the panic that gripped private purse-strings last year, it is more likely that GM would have been liquidated, sending a cascade of destruction through the supply chain on which its rivals, too, depended. As for moral hazard, the expectation of future bail-outs may prompt managers and unions in other industries to behave rashly. But all the stakeholders suffered during GM's bankruptcy, so this effect may be small.

Socialists don't privatise

That does not mean, however, that bail-outs are always or often justified. Straightforward bankruptcy is usually the most efficient way to allow floundering firms to restructure or fail. The state should step in only when a firm's collapse poses a systemic risk. Propping up the financial system in 2008 clearly qualified. Saving GM was a harder call, but, with the benefit of hindsight, the right one. The lesson for governments is that for a bail-out to work, it must be brutal and temporary. The lesson for American voters is that their president, for all his flaws, has no desire to own the commanding heights of industry. A gambler, yes. An interventionist, yes. A socialist, no.

Now try t find something that isn't over TWO YEARS OLD. A lot has happened since then. We own 20% or more and we cannot even break even unless that price per share exceeds $54.00 per share, it's around $22.00 now. Plus GM pays not corporate taxes for at least ten years and we still have the same old stale management with the Unions now owning art of the company. Oh, who is it that now owns Chrysler? Oh, right, Fiat, I guess that now makes them an Italian Car Manufacturer.

Did that same study say how well Pontiac, Saturn or the Hummer were doing? How about all those dealerships that are now shut down, no jobs?

This is what we get when we send a Community Organizer to run the most complex economic system in the world. He thought, cram a $1 TRILLION "Stimulus" package up the throats of the Citizens and presto, the economy would be ROLLING for his re-election. OOPS....

Well, General Motors was capitalized via a preferred stock purchase and reported a record annual profit for 2011. Chrystler and Ford posted profits for that year as well, which marked the first time since 2004 that all three of the major US auto manufacturers posted profits at the same time.

I don't care what you say about Romney. People will be coming out to vote AGAINST Obama.

Unless it can be proven that Romney is a murderer or drug dealer, Obama is on his way o
ut.


LASER-LIKE FOCUS: OBAMA‘S JOBS COUNCIL HASN’T MET IN SIX MONTHS

Hey, remember all those times we were told President Obama was focused like a laser (or something) on jobs? Yeah, we remember that too. Say, it must be awfully difficult to address the nation’s unemployment when, you know, your jobs council hasn’t met in six months.

Yes, you read that correctly: the president‘s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness hasn’t met since January 17.

President Barack Obama meets with his Council on Jobs and
Competitiveness, Januaruy, 17.

“Coming off the worst quarter of job-creation in two years, and with the worst jobs record of any president in modern history, it’s clear President Obama has failed to live up to his promises,” said Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul.

“Yet President Obama is listening more to his campaign donors and special interest groups than to his own jobs council. That makes perfect sense for a president more concerned with re-election than getting the economy back on track,” she added.

With unemployment at 8.2 percent (and real unemployment much worse than that), some may think it rather odd that the president can find time to do back-to-back-to-back-to-back fundraisers and play his 100th round of golf but not find time to meet with this jobs panel.

But seriously, with the jobs situation as bad as it is, why hasn’t the president met with his much-touted panel? As it turns out, according to a new POLITICO report, there may be several reasons for this:

1) Considering that many of the council members are major business executives, some of them don’t want to meet during the campaign season for fear of appearing partisan.
2) A few members on the panel have declined to endorse President Obama and, in return, President Obama has declined to endorse their recommendations. What we‘re trying to say is that it’s like a cafeteria during recess and one kid won’t talk to another because their feelings are hurt (or something).
3) Some of the panel members have at some point been involved in outsourcing [you know, the thing Team Obama claims is literally the worst thing in the world].
“The thing is supposed to be bipartisan, so a lot of times they don’t want to get into things that could be used by either side in the election,” an anonymous former aide told POLITICO. “The businesspeople, for the most part, don’t want to get into the middle of political fighting.”

So, basically, what we’re being told is a) members of the much-touted jobs council don’t plan on coming out of hiding until after the election and b) President Obama has made little to no effort to change this.

Remember when the president said “This has not been a show council. This has been a work council”?

Yeah, we do too. Wasn’t that fun?

You really need to read something other than "The Nation" and the "DailyKOS".

As for Bain, do you NEVER purchase a product from ANY of these companies? You do? Then gosh, I guess they have thousands of employees….

What, no animated avatar of a guy rolling around on the ground laughing over the source of the quote?? This was a good article from the Economist explaining the GM deal.

It worked. GM is still with us.

The President had no desire to run it as a government owned company. You are full of BS on this one. Just get over it. You should be glad it worked because of all the jobs it saved in the supply line as well as those at GM.

As for the price of GM stock today I would say that is not a significant part of this since it is an ongoing situation and at this point unfinished work in progress.

Time will tell but right now it looks as if it was the right thing to do.
