There were many factors obviously but the death knell was Bush II canceling the CAFE increases the Clintons had set to take effect. This lulled Detroit and it's greedy, shortsighted patricians into a false sense of wellbeing, but worse than that, delayed development of electric cars for long enough for U.S. companies to miss the market demand.
The total bullshit from the right or whereever, that the unions were responsible it just too fucking funny. Did the unions decide to make Hummers? Did the unions force G.M. to buy Saab or launch Saturn, or cancel Oldsmobile and Pontiac, and EV1? Did the unions have a hand in glorious mismanagement, in CEO and other executive overcompensation, in becoming a financial rather than a manufacturing companie? Did the unions direct management to ignore customer service complaints, to ignore industry talk about japanese quality?
Don't tell me about overpaid union workers, while the best cars in the world are made in Europe, by the highest paid employees and Japan and China just wish they could compete. Go screw yourselves Neo-con appologists.
That stupid fucker wrecked this place and you ignorant shitpiles are still making excuses for him.

It is the responsibility of every American citizen to own a modern military rifle.
