    Can we please get back to the business of building cars and trucks?

    Can we end this witch hunt now and get back to the business of building highly competitive cars & trucks? Doesn't CEO Barra have more important things to do that answer idiotic questions from congressmen/women who don't know squat about designing and manufacturing cars? Thank you.

    • Exactly! This is just a chance for the 'do nothing congress' to show boat and take attention off their horrendous incompetence.

    • Folks,

      Looks like Government Motors has put forth another paid stooges to try to change the subject about a SERIOUS issue. We've seen this same (failed) tactic attempted by DuPont, also run by a woman CEO. No amount of lipstick will fix this pig, nor make Ms. BARRA-ly Making It put on a better show. Marissa from Yahoo would at least look good in a swimsuit, unlike Ms. BARRA-ly Making It in her corny skirt!

    • Sure keep building them and stuffing them on the lot.. GM has a great shot now at 1 million+ in inventory by summer! I am sure there would not be any safety issues either, since GM has proven to be such a trustworthy company..

      It's kind of important to get to the bottom of this, so it doesn't happen again. I don't know about you, but making sure that they build responsibly is pretty important.
      You can't let makers just get away would you?

        Of course you are exactly right. I think what he was saying is to end the charade of a congressional investigation. What we saw yesterday was American politics at its worst. Politicians pushing their own agendas, trying to appear tough, asking questions that have no answers, and re-asking them even though they know what the response will be. That hearing solved nothing, as expected.

        Now it is time for the serious people, both in and out of government to get to the truth. And the truth will have consequences for some, rightfully so. And when the truth is known, you can be that there will be more press conferences for the truly stupid to proclaim victory, and I fully expect for Barbara Boxer and Claire McCaskill. We all know about Boxer, but McCaskill is best known in Missouri for bilking the government for paying for her to fly her own private plane to Washington on 90 different occasions, and the failure to pay $280,000 of property tax on the plane. She would have lost the last election, but the Republicans nominated a stupid choice. His name is Todd Akin who we all know self destructed.
