In another thread that was unfortunately closed, KenH made the following remark: Can you provide any quotes or evidence from anyone in the GOP saying that they are opposed to saving the domestic auto industry? I think the discussion is not about saving it, but about the methodology of saving it. The GOP is more than willing, I imagine, for private investors to save it, or for the UAW and the companies to do what is necessary to save it. The question is whether or not the government should save it. I think this is another case of KenH not being entirely straightforward about what the real issues are. I think every single GOP member would be in favor of having a domestic auto industry. Some of the most vocal, such as Coburn, worked very hard to get a package to save it and the UAW turned it down. So if you have no evidence, you need to retract this and take better care to accurately convey the truth.
