Wanting Chrysler and GM to Fail?
Over at the Guardian, I take a look at the legal challenge by Indiana state treasurer Richard Mourdock that has temporarily held up the Chrysler bankruptcy. For Mourdock, it's not just about the money, it's a matter of principle:
He doesn't sound like someone ready to trade his constitutional rights for a few more pennies on the dollar.Mourdock isn't the only conservative opposing the restructuring of Chrysler and GM:
Talkshow hosts Hugh Hewitt and Rush Limbaugh are calling for a boycott of what they and others call "Government Motors". Having said he wants Obama to fail, Limbaugh now wants GM to fail as well. Their defence of capitalism doesn't seem to extend to keeping actual companies in business.So the Republicans’ Maximum Leader Rush Limbaugh (as Cassandra of DL calls him) would rather see GM fail than Obama succeed.
