Partisan Closing of Dealerships is a National Disgrace

Via Memeorandum

President Obama and the Democrats in Congress are using the auto-industry bailout to ruin the lives of people they deem enemies. From Gateway Pundit:

Again here is what we know so far--

** Earlier it was reported that the Obama Administration may have targeted GOP donors in deciding which Chrysler dealerships would have to close their doors.
** Later it was discovered that a Big Dem Donor Group was allowed to keep all 6 Chrysler dealerships open.... And, their local competitors were eliminated.
** The Auto Task Force, which includes Obama cabinet members, is reportedly calling the shots on which dealerships will close and stay open.
** Steven Rattner leads The Auto Task Force and is married to the former National Finance Chair of Democratic Party, Maureen White.
** The closings in several instances appear to benefit Dem donating dealers where local GOP-linked dealerships were closed.
** Even Rep. Vern Buchanan (R-Fla) lost his Chrysler dealership in Florida and found out from a colleague on the House floor.
** Lithia Motor Group's owners gave $15,000 to two Democrat candidates and support nationalized healthcare. They will likely lose just two of 29 dealerships and gain 5 more.
** One report claims the odds that these Chrysler closings occurred without partisan bias are less than 1%.
** After closing the 789 dealerships Chrysler announced that they are already looking to open new franchises.
** Chrysler dealership owners donated to Republicans over Democrats by a ratio of 76% to 24%.
** Using the list of all 789 dealerships to be closed, WND found that owners contributed $450,000 to GOP presidential candidates; $7,970 to Sen. Hillary Clinton; $2,200 to John Edwards and $450 to Barack Obama.
** 40 Democrat-friendly dealerships will become 42 dealerships after the dust settles. Their competition gutted as well.
** Quantitative analysis determined that the process to determine which dealerships were going to close indeed favored democrats.

Thousands of jobs will be lost and countless families’ lives ruined for the most base and evil of all reasons: political payback. This is nothing short of despicable. The Democratic Party should never again claim that they are the party of the working people. The Democrats have shown themselves to be fascist dictators who will stop at nothing to destroy this country and remake it into their personal fiefdom.

what amazes me about all this is that it's being done so blatantly, out in the open. The Obama administration appears to think that it can do absolutely anything it wants and the little people won't say or do anything to stop them.
