Hummer Man


I’m sorry, but this idea that the Administration is treating Wagoner (ex-CEO of GM) as a scapegoat is ridiculous.  The company went bankrupt under his watch.  OK, not technically bankrupt yet, but only because the US Government is keeping them running.  And not only that, but Wagoner was made CEO because of his “success” in bringing the first new badge to GM since Saturn: Hummer.  GM marshalled its tremendous resources to do two things over the last decade and a half: fight fuel economy standards with everything it had, and bring an 8 mpg, 3 ton boy-toy to market . Hummer is now the posterboy of American automaker idiocy and the whole division is being sold at garage sale prices (and still not a taker in sight).  The fact that the Administation is calling for his ouster is step #1, and as far from scapegoating as you can get.  Everything he championed at GM is exactly what go them into the mess in the first place.  Good riddance.
