At this point about 19 percent… We’ll finalize that, but I’m not interested in going down from that

GM’s Fritz Henderson in Automotive News [sub] on his “plans” for GM’s market share. As Evan Newmark dryly puts it over at the WSJ’s Mean Street blog, “if the Norwegians are giving out Nobel Prizes for aspirations and efforts, then surely Mr. Henderson is up for one.”

    Are there ANY photos of Fritz where he doesn't have his arms crossed? Shouldn't someone in GM pull him aside and tell him how defensive and closed minded that pose makes him appear? Seriously! It must have hurt like hell to give birth to him with his arms crossed like that.

    Autosavant : “It’s the product, Stupid!” Build an affordable, superior vehicle and the market share will take care of itself, with no hard-boiled egg-heads with mustaches needed. Indeed. And I think the mustache is getting bigger, in a 70's sort of way. Could sideburns be far behind? jthorner : Fritz is in so far over his head it isn’t funny. And, he doesn’t know it. He may be in over his head, but I'm almost certain that the mustache can be used as a floatation device.

    “Plans for market share”? Exactly. Ask me how my "plans for dating supermodels" is going...

    "And I think the mustache is getting bigger" To match his nose? "He is the Walrus! Chu-chuchu-choo!" or whatever
