President Barack Obama incessantly touts the alleged “success” of the $50 billion General Motors (GM) bailout, evidence to the contrary notwithstanding.
General Motors – The Government’s Warped Definition of ‘Success’
Much like the Obama Economy, General Motors’ numbers are tanking. Earlier this week we had:
GM’s 2012 Sales Growth Only 2.5%
Outstanding. And the failures continue to abound.
General Motors 3Q Profit Falls 14 Pct (from 3Q 2011)
2011 US GDP growth: 2.0%.
2012 US GDP growth (thus far): 1.77%.
Two percent is pathetic, and the Obama Economy can’t manage to match it this year.
Are things now looking up for the economy?
Economic Outlook for 2012 Even Worse Than We Thought
Things are looking worse for the U.S. economy than even three months ago.
Apparently not. How about for General Motors?

This all-things-failing-equally can’t be what President Obama has in mind, right?
