President George Bush has now signaled his willingness to help the struggling Detroit automakers, the Wall Street Journal is reporting.
Here's a quote from the WSJ summing up the president's plan:
White House spokeswoman Dana Perino said the administration would consider tapping the $700 billion government pool—known as the Troubled Asset Relief Plan—that was created ahead of the November election to calm turmoil in financial markets.
Very interesting. Coburn is ready to let the U.S. industry fail (as are the voters, if the polls are right), but not even George Bush wants to see a huge sector of the U.S. economy collapse on his watch.
