Episode 39 – GM, Lies and Audiotape


Glenn, who has been calling for GM to go into bankruptcy since December 2008, and Jeff de-bunk the spin surrounding GM’s bankruptcy during Episode 39. They explain what this really means for consumers, why you shouldn’t be worried about buying a GM car, and why you should be worried now that the federal government owns 60% of the “new” GM.  Even as a progressive Democrat, Jeff worries about the federal government over-reaching in trying to protect GM, and wonders if thee company is too big to fail. Listen as the wheels come off Illinois Sen. Burris’ lame defense of his indefensible claims under oath regarding his appointment to President Obama’s Senate Seat. Glenn and Jeff peel back the ugly truth behind fundraising and lobbying, and offer a new context to understand the Burris situation. Ending with passion, they both enthusiastically endorse Congressman Sestak’s bid for the Democratic Senate nomination in Pennsylvania, taking on flip-flopping Sen. Arlen Specter. They probe Pennsylvania Gov. Rendell’s harsh comments towards Sestak made on MSNBC’s Ed Shultz Show in which he boasted that Sestak would get “killed” in a primary and would end up in political oblivion for challenging Specter, and that he best just keep his Congressional seat. Jeff reminds listeners that President Obama was in the same exact situation when he took on then Sen. Hillary Clinton, and wonders why Senate Democrats and the people of Pennsylvania wouldn’t want a member of the Democratic caucus who is loyal and dependable, unlike Specter. So much intrigue to read through, so many lies and distortions to unfold. It’s another great episode of PoliTalk — always informative and entertaining — it’s your weekly political podcast.
