    “I don’t want to run auto companies.” – President Barack Obama, April 29, 2009.

    “Obama Halves Chrysler’s Planned Marketing Budget” – Advertising Age, May 11, 2009.

    Congress should help President Obama stop running auto companies. We must repeal TARP now.

    3. Spiritof76, New Hamp says:

      Chrysler will cease to be a factor in automobile design and production but a welfare center for the UAW through the taxpayer spigot located in Washington.

      When are his handlers in the White House (E-twidle and A-dumb) going to be impeached for abuse/overreaching power of the executive branch.

      I do not see where he can run any company or tell any coupany how to operate. I thought we had a 4th amendment and first amendment. If I read Article two I don't see how he can do anything with private companies. The legislative branch is responsible for Interstate Commerace not the executive branch.

      He can't claim ignorance. I understand he taught the contitution. I am wondering what country did he teach the constitution; the Soviet Union?

      Spiritof76, You hit the nail on the head, Can I publish your quote in my classroom?

    6. Grace, Florida says:

      I don't think Obama will be stopped until he has control of everything and everyone.

      He knows exactly what he's doing – he faces no opposition – he is the darling of the world right now and is flying high. I really think he feels invincible.

      He claims he don't want to run banks, the auto industry, the housing market, etc. but he wants it all. Now the question we should be asking ourselves as Americans is what will happen when the government has all this control? They have proved over and over everything they touch turns out awful and this will not be the exception. I don't know what we can do – but there has to be something done to stop this madness.

      ALL

      Auto companies, warranties for parts, warranties for repairs, fiscal hand outs. ALL part of the grander scheme.

      Sovietization of the USA. Well under way, but not a sure thing.

      Semper Fi

      end

      The socialist government at its best, obama started his "rule" on 1/20/09. That statement is according to one of his people on national tv. Well we now are able to see where his rule is headed, Total controll of eveything that the American people do, up to and including how we live our lives. Wonder when he will start taxing us on the air we breath, or put an age limit when we have to stop useing oxygen??????

      Michael Savage conservative radio host has asked for help in regards to getting his named removed from a list of people banned from entering England. He supports our military, police enforcement and conservative ideals. Read more of his plight at his web site and forward his message to all in your address book. I am.

      The solution is to move to Australia

    11. JOHN WALSH says:

      IF YOU RECALL IN GERMAN HISTORY, HITLER CONTROLLED THE AUTO INDUSTRY (VOLKSWAGEN-THE PEOPLES CAR). HE ALSO CONTROLLED THE FINANCIAL INDUSTRY, THE GERMAN TREASURY, THE GERMAN CENSUS BUREAU, ETC.,ETC., VERY MUCH LIKE OUR PRESIDENT OBAMA, WHO WAS ELECTED BY FRAUDULENT MEANS, SIMILAR TO HITLER. 1/4 OF THE ABSENTEE (OUR MILITARY) VOTES WENT UNCOUNTED, PLUS THERE WERE THOUSANDS OF FRAUDULENT VOTES THAT WERE COUNTED.

      WILL YOU PLEASE WAKE UP THE REPUBLLICAN SENATORS TO THIS, THE WORSE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION TRAVESTY IN THE HISTORY OF AMERICA.

    12. Truth Hurts, The Rea says:

      Is it possible to tax a free nation into slavery ? Isn't there a amendment about that in The Constitution?How come we still haven't seen his college grades and course load?Where oh where is the Transparency?Did we elect a evil idiot to be our president?

    13. Ben C, Ann Arbor, MI says:

      Thank you John Walsh. My dad is 88 years old and tells the same story – he was a Naval pilot during WWII. The similarities are striking between Hitler and Obama. Another factor that enters into the equation is "politcal correctness" whose roots are in the Frankfurt School that relocated to Columbia University in NYC following WWII. Their ideology and methods have been well played in the US to the point where it is ingrained in the ideology of the "left." The statement from Garafalo (sp?) about the "Tea Party" is classic: never address the issues rather attack the people with disparaging labels – thus the participants were "red necks" and racists". Watching the past election cycle it became clear that Obama either knowingly or unknowingly embrassed this concept.

      Yes, it is scary times.

    14. Kevin, Addison,TX says:

      The best thing that can be done to stop this madness, is get out and vote next year. Remove all the greedy liberals, and he won't have a leg to stand on. As you can see, Nancy Pelosi is about to be fed to the wolves.

    15. Barb -mn says:

      The president and his kin need to learn to MIND THEIR OWN BUSINESS.

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
