Dealer Closings Mostly Republican Supporters

If this is true, then it's more evidence of scandal in the Obama Administration

Evidence appears to be mounting that the Obama administration has systematically targeted for closing Chrysler dealers who contributed to Repubicans. What started earlier this week as mainly a rumbling on the Right side of the Blogosphere has gathered some steam today with revelations that among the dealers being shut down are a GOP congressman and closing of competitors to a dealership chain partly owned by former Clinton White House chief of staff Mack McLarty.

Even though it could be true that this is simply due to the fact that small business owners tend to be conservative this will still raise a shit storm after the way the UAW was treated.

Well, that is what corporatism is.

You give your money to government and then beg to get it back.

And you will.

As long as you behave.

Too bad a vast majority of the dealerships staying open are Republican supporters too: http://www.fivethirtyeight.com/2009/05/news-flash-car-dealers-are-republicans.html

Try again.

There was no "trying" anything... I said "If it's true". However it would stand to settle that even though it's factual, the numers are skewed because business owners are mostly conservative.
