General Motors Has Something It Wants To Say…

Don’t thank us GM… thank George W. Bush. Also, do we remember what happened when Chrysler tried this? History seems to indicate that paying back every penny is the best “thank you” of all.

    I have to admit that I lost interest a few seconds into the ad, so I could be mistaken, but I was left with one stark contrast: Didn't the characters in the ad that failed/fell down manage to pull themselves up without the generous assistance of others? Seems like an apples and oranges comparison to me.

    Someone should make a parody of this showing things like the Deathstar blowing up, the T1000 melting, and Yosemite Sam getting tricked. Then, after the "Thank you for helping us back up line" flash up the logos for Oldsmobile, Pontiac, Saturn, and HUMMER.

    Ugh- don't thank people when they gave you a loan against your will. That'd be like someone mugging you and saying "gee- thanks. You're swell. I hope to pay to back some time, if everything works out".

    Seems to be a gathering here of the TTAC GM haters. Once in your glory with the premature "deathwatch" articles. Now reduced to name-calling, cursing and general anger at The General. So pathetic.
