GM and Ford are victims of their own device in being a worldwide focused company. Weakness in Europe is overwhelming everything good, from a PR point of view. It might not be so bad for them if they didn't have so many production facilities across the world. EOM. The only profitable regions are NA. GM has a head start over Ford in Asia but both ompanies are taking it on the chin in Europe. EOM.. It seems to be getting worse, not better in Europe. EOM.
