GM got bailed out but the company is still the same old GM. The stock has returned -32.6% VS +14.96 (SPY) The last time GM was in trouble they got bailed out but will they get bailed out again or was that the last chance. And if they were not bailed out wont Ford stock go up significantly once GM is out of the picture? http://www.forbes.com/sites/louiswoodhill/2012/08/15/general-motors-is-headed-for-bankruptcy-again/ President Obama is proud of his bailout of General Motors. Thatâs good, because, if he wins a second term, he is probably going to have to bail GM out again. The company is once again losing market share, and it seems unable to develop products that are truly competitive in the U.S. market.
