Revenge Is a Dish Best Served Cold, Corker. [Apr. 11th, 2009|01:45 pm]

Dear Bob Corker,

I think you didn't think your clever plan all the way through.
Payback's a bitch, you southern gentleman!

From the Freep:

Look who wants to protect a GM plant

Corker wants to save jobs


WASHINGTON -- Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., a leading critic of the domestic auto industry's management during congressional debate last year who tried to force UAW pay cuts, now is fighting like a Michigan Democrat to keep a General Motors plant open in his home state.

Over the last few weeks, Corker -- in a news release, in interviews and in a column in the Tennessean newspaper -- has argued that in a fair fight, the GM Spring Hill plant, which makes the popular midsize Chevrolet Traverse SUV, would be a survivor.

Industry experts, though, said it is vulnerable to closure -- because it's farther from suppliers than another plant that could turn out the Traverse.

Corker's concern, he told the Free Press this week, is that decisions on plant closings -- as GM cuts deeper to meet the Obama administration's mandate for more government help -- will be based more on politics than what's best for the company.

Of his home state plant, Corker said, "If the decision is made absent of politics, it has a good chance of staying open."

What makes you think the Republicans think anything through?
All their plans lately look like that.

I'll cut and paste what I've said elsewhere, previously, RE: the two big parties ...

I love how the other party gets a hold of the executive spot, and the previous party uses everything they were guilty of against the new guy, before he gets a chance to do anything about it, while failing to acknowledge that they did nothing about it.
