    Joe came up with a famous bumper sticker line:

    "GM is alive and Osama bin Laden is dead."

    So, a few pesky facts to keep in mind about GM. (Granted, Bush had his hands in this fine mess for the auto bailouts, as well, but it went down under obama.)

    FACT: Not everyone was a winner in the auto bailout, common share stockholders and especially tax payers lost big time.

    This is a great read that covers all the details:

    Facts don't matter. Bumper sticker slogans do.

    One wonders if he can get his foot out of his mouth long enough to deliever the speech.

    GM stock price about 18 months ago--mid $30's a share.

    GM stock price now-$22 a share.

    I'm still waiting for the delivery of the GM automobile I was forced to pay for.

    Looks like I was right - Joe's speech was about GM and OBL!! I ask - Where is the plan to put American's back to work? Why, Joe, should Obama get 4 more years to live up to the promises he made 4 years ago. And, Joe, GM still owes taxpayers money and the common stock holders got zero. And OBL? Our special forces would have gotten him eventually anyway. Any President would have given the order. That's hardly unique to Obama.

    The only thing unique about Biden's speech is that it was slightly better than Obama's. The bottom line is, everyone tune into the VP debate. It is the number one show until election day.
