obama new Obama To Visit Big 3 Plants In Mich.President Barack Obama will visit U.S. auto plants in Michigan and Illinois next week to highlight his administration’s decision to rescue General Motors and Chrysler last year and revitalize the U.S. auto industry.

Obama will travel to Detroit on July 30 to tour General Motors and Chrysler plants and visit a Ford assembly plant in his hometown of Chicago on Aug. 5.

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs says Obama plans to discuss the progress that the auto industry has made during the past year following the government-led bankruptcies of GM and Chrysler. Gibbs says Obama will acknowledge the decisions were unpopular but necessary to save hundreds of thousands of jobs and rebuild the industry for the future.

    Mr. Barack Hussien Obama did not rescue the Auto Companies, he took them over like a Punk Communist Thug. He re-wrote bankruptcy law and shafted the stockholders and the bondholders of all their potenitally recoverable assets. He set the unions up for ownership of GM and gave Chrysler away to the Italians. Gee – what a brilliant businessman.
    Excuse me while I throw up!
