GM's bob lutz whines about his bailout while using your credit card
Jan 16, 2009 at 3:48 AM

The vice-chairman of GM apparently does not appreciate having to fly commercial.  And it's your fault.  Nor, apparently does he have any sense of how not to sound like a buffoon when he speaks.  Read on to see exactly why he's so upset with you.


From NPR:

Lutz has been in the car business for 45 years, so it's a change for him to operate on the federal government's nickel.

"I've never quite been in this situation before of getting a massive pay cut, no bonus, no longer allowed to stay in decent hotels, no corporate airplane. I have to stand in line at the Northwest counter," Lutz says. "I've never quite experienced this before. I'll let you know a year from now what it's like."

And in terms of the decisions that executives make at GM, how are they different? Lutz says they don't know. That's because Washington has not yet appointed a car czar, the government's designee to oversee the loans to GM and Chrysler.


Excuse me while I vomit.
