In regards to the topic at hand, I do blame the politicians for not putting in some sort of restriction on the type of vehicle that could be purchased. It walks a fine line of socialism vs "free trade" at that point, but when it comes down to it, I'd rather have seen the taxes we're going to have to pay back at least stay here in the US (eventually). Sure, Ford would have lost sales on the Fusion/ Hybrid (built in Hermasillo, Mexico), but hopefully it would have taken some of the Kia or Hyundai sales and moved them to domestic auto makers.

Then again, I guess that's my Democratic ultra socialist dirty ass liberal side speaking, trying to take away peoples' right to choose what vehicle they want.
It's how politicians get re-elected - propaganda and fear.

According to G.W., we were all going to die due to terrorists
According to Clinton we were all going to die due to environmental decay
According to George Sr...Wait, he didn't strike fear into the people but also didn't get re-elected.

Obama is still on the fence. He is trying to decide if fear of the economy or fear of health care will get him re-elected.
