Obama’s Auto Industry Rescue Worked – Will Conservatives Admit They Were Wrong?

by DonkerDink

Remember when the right was calling Adolf Hussein Obamastalin’s rescue of the auto industry some sort of Communist plot? Remember all the “Government Motors” jokes?

Here’s what today’s WSJ has to say about all that.

The rescue of the auto industry is proving to be an unexpected success, and the president’s biggest economic policy achievement to date.

Fresh, steaming plates of delicious crow go to El Rushbo:

I just want to say, what you were just talking about there about not buying GM products because of Obama, it’s exactly how I feel.

Hugh Hewitt:

Every dollar spent with GM is a dollar spent against free enterprise.

Jon Kyl (R-AZ):

“Just giving them $25 billion doesn’t change anything,” Sen. Jon Kyl of Arizona, the Senate’s second-ranking Republican, said on Fox News Sunday. “It just puts off for six months or so the day of reckoning.”

And Richard Shelby (R-Toyota):

We should have let the market forces work it out,” he said. “That’s the way we’ve always done it … What we’ve done … it’s the road toward socialism, government intervention in the market in a big way. What’s the end game here and can the American people afford it. I think the answer is obviously not.”

Still wrong about everything.
