You need only reflect that one of the best ways to get yourself a reputation as a dangerous citizen these days is to go about repeating the very phrases which our founding fathers used in the struggle for independence. - Charles Austin Beard

Race Played Role in Obama Car Dealer Closures

Race Played Role in Obama Car Dealer Closures

closures the Obama administration forced on General Motors and Chrysler -- were based in part on race and gender, according to a report by Troubled Asset Relief Program Special Inspector General Neal M. Barofsky.

[D]ealerships were retained because they were recently appointed, were key wholesale parts dealers, or were minority- or woman-owned dealerships. [Emphasis added.]

“Factors Affecting the Decisions of General Motors and Chrysler to Reduce Their Dealership Networks.” You can find it at the TARP OIG’s website here. I encourage everyone to read through the entire report. The MSM coverage of the audit didn’t do justice to the independent watchdog’s damning indictment of Obummer's bureaucrats in charge of nationalizing the U.S. auto industry.
