Obama closing GOP Dealerships

Big Brother is moving faster than I feared.

Nearly 88% of car dealerships terminated by Chrysler - at Obama's direct orders - are GOP owned. Huffingpost thinks it's amusing - but I wonder if those Republicans will be laughing next November? I mean, what's amusing about being forced to pay the debt a government incurred in buying the business that fired you? A firing ordered by the same government?

"Evidence appears to be mounting that the Obama administration has systematically targeted for closing Chrysler dealers who contributed to Repubicans. What started earlier this week as mainly a rumbling on the Right side of the Blogosphere has gathered some steam today with revelations that among the dealers being shut down are a GOP congressman and closing of competitors to a dealership chain partly owned by former Clinton White House chief of staff Mack McLarty."

Another note. This may or may not be relevant but...

"...White House car czar Steven Rattner is married to Maureen White, the former national finance chairman of the Democratic National Committee. And let's not forget that before Rattner became a Wall Street mover and shaker, he was a New York Times reporter."

Mike asked a very good question - i.e., is there any more backup for the claim that 88% of car dealerships closed by GM were GOP-owned?

So I did some more investigation. And as far as I can see the claim that GOP owners were mostly targeted for closing holds up. Indeed, one of the links even said that the number was actually 90%, instead of 88%.

One other thing. These cites are from the Net, not the MSM. Yet more proof that the MSM still only gets a tingle for Obama, not the facts.


Thank you for the links, etc. Carolyn and Mike

Folks, this is going to be a long summer
