Just what I was thinking, infact Chad would post the same thing, but he doesnt have internet just messing with ya Chad, if you ever read this.

I agree, get over it! some people just want to whine about something. How many threads are there on this site about getting laid off..downsized..fired..etc, due to the current times. Does everyone realize that they sold thousands of cars in 4 short days? I can see the next whitty comment, some were foreign..yes they were, but sold by American salesmen that will have a little extra money in the paycheck this week to put a little money back into local businesses. The other thing I love..."My heart is broken over that LT1" or "I could build a trail rig with that", whatever!..first, I'm sure you wern't looking for a LT1 anyway, and if you were I'm sure there are a bunch on Craigslist and Ebay..start looking!

Can we look at the big picture here? This creates job!...who give a "F" if he is doing a good job or not, atleast he is doing something to fix our sinking ship, and unless you are prepared to step up and be a true leader..stop bitching!

Just one opinion from someone who works for a auto supplier.

This is costing taxpayers billions, and resulting in around 12 car deals per dealer per billion. 12 car deals might sound like alot, but it's not. These people would've bought cars anyway. Should we keep spending billions of dollars to prop up sales to give the chosen one something to point at and say "look at all this good i'm doing."?

12 cars PER dealer is actually a lot of cars. To some dealers, thats 1/4 of their inventory. 3 billion (so far approved) would mean 36 vehicles per dealer.

And I don't agree that the customers using CFC would have bought cars anyway, and I doubt there is proof of that. Most people driving cars valued under $4500 would either rather drive used cars, or flat out can't afford new cars.

But I do agree the program (and the wastefullness of the 'clunkers') is a huge failed cluster fawk

Wasting government money to waste otherwise recycleable engines.
Obama is an educated idiot.

I was thinking that same thing. Seems like this program has the ability to mimic the outcome of the housing boom.
