Great at getting PR, and selling movies but not sure of some of his "industrial policy"

MichaelMoore.com : Goodbye, GM ...by Michael Moore

I will grant that GM made some massive mistakes, but to be a cheerleader for the fall, that strikes me as a bit too far.

Washington has it's share of blame too.
How about higher gas taxes to encourage changes in behavior, how about shifting costs to the union earlier, how about the fact that, until the recession, the auto industry has been strong (foreign plants in the southern states churning out product).

Mass transit - yup, where you have mass populations, but not in rural areas.
Miss the bus, and you ... miss the bus.

Back to movies Mike
