The first time John McCain ran for the U.S. presidency, his aggressive, occasionally angry style didn't sit well with voters. As we saw in 2008, he's managed to dial it down a bit during public debates, but the senator is still as feisty as ever. Yesterday, he told the press that Chrysler is doomed, despite receiving government support to the tune of $15 billion. Said McCain: "anybody believes that Chrysler is going to survive, I'd like to meet them". We'll see if he offers any analysis of the other bankrupt kid on the block, GM, and its third-quarter financials today. [DetNews]

  1. Pssstt!! Mr. McCain! Mr. McCain! Here! yes, here! I think Chrysler will survive. In fact, I can't wait to see (and own!) one of those new Diesel Wranglers.

  2. The only way Chrysler it to survive is to just become an importer of rebadged Fiat products. Which is appears that's what is planned by Fiat's board.
    Question is - Who will get Jeep if Chrysler does go under.

  5. Very difficult at this point to assess: Intentions of the Italians, desirability of FIAT/Chrysler products on these shores, ability/intent to pay back existing loans, future "requests" for additional billions. Until then, I will hold off on determining viability and suggest McCain do the same.

  6. Mr. McCain must like the taste of toe jam because I see him constantly putting his foot in his mouth. What is he thinking with comments like this? He's just as much part owner of Chrysler as you or I. Why would you speak negatively about Chrysler like this? People's employment and livelyhood are riding on the success of the new Chrysler LLC. I think Sergio Marchionne has the ideas and plans in place to make this work. McCain should be very careful with the words he uses.

  7. Even though I voted for Senator McCain, it appears he is no expert on Chrysler and hasn't gotten out lately. Senator, have you read the plan? Senator these new Chrysler designed , Fiat platformed products will not be a re-badging effort but a totally unique,domestically targeted Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep line. I think that in five to six years Chrysler Group will be the largest selling North American car company with doubled world-wide sales and will be very profitable. You may be wrong on Chrysler, but America was wrong on Obama, which is far worse.
