Finally, the Senate Republicans develop some backbone and demand concessions from the UAW that would at least give the automakers a fighting chance of being viable. Of course the union refused, showing how likely they will be to make concessions when negotiating with an obama administration. What does Bush do? Lets it be known they the adminstration will step in anyway to prevent bankruptcies, effectively pulling the rug out from under the Senate Republicans. So now the UAW can play hardball, secure in the knowledge that Bush has backstabbed his own party. And for what? To save a union that has spent billions opposing him and his party. This administration cannot end soon enough. Stupid and arrogant are a bad combo.
