    Strange its bad for foreign countries to bail out their manufacturers but not the US? May be the best thing for all concerned to sell SAAB and Volvo to the Swedish Government, makes more sense than selling to the Chinese (who would probably move production off to Asia and just keep the names).
    Also can the Swedish government really do any worse than GM with SAAB? Why did they even bother? At least Ford tried (but generally failed) to do something with Volvo. Honestly wish them luck.

    The clueless socialists (or socialists lites) in Stockholm can have both.
    It will have the same fate (a drawn-out and agonizing death) as British Leyland did, when the Brits tried to nationalize their own loser carmakers in the 70s.
