Wow, not smart. These executives are living in a new world – they just don't know it. The CEO's from GM, Chrysler and Ford may have just put the final nail in the American economy by choosing to fly their corporate jets to DC to ask for more money. I think the auto-makers need a bailout, that the American economy will suffer if we don't give them one, and I fully realize that the $20K it cost to fly the jet will be less than a rounding error on their red ink this quarter – but still. I think the automakers just lost out on any opportunity to get help from the government. When people here about this, I don't think there's any way that Congress is going to be able to vote for a bailout.
