Is anyone else worried...

... that GM may have cut too much, too fast?

4 Brands

More than a third of dealers

10s of thousands of employees

I'm thinking that the overall impact will be much larger than anticipated by anyone.

On the other hand, had they not cut the brands and moved as fast as they did, way more people would have likely lost their jobs, as unfortunate as it is.

Well, they are probably on the fast track to 10% market share by 2011-2012. But profitable when?

Four Brands? They should have went to two Brands. All I hear is how the American consumers are going to make GM pay for the tax dollars invested, by not buying anything made by GM. Maybe even two brands may be one brand to many ...

Let me sum it up like this:

If your legacy costs are TOO much to bear & your competition

is driving you to extinction, what's the smartest thing to do?

Mount an attack?

NO!

Your shrink. Or in other words, shrivel up & die, slowly. <_<

This country is on the brink of destruction. GM is just a symptom

of the coming &#036;h&#33;storm that is REALLY going to shake us to the

foundation. For those who think we've hit rock bottom, I think

YOU are a part of the problem for your complacency, be it driven

by apathy or ignorance.

I agree with 68. The &#036;h&#33;storm has been coming for 30 or 40 years, we've just had our heads in the sand. I am not saying that the sky is falling...

But the &#036;h&#33; storm is going to get worse.

We've created this situation as Americans.

But GM as a whole has got to survive, and I think that is far from certain right now. I'm optomistic, but there is still a chance the whole ship could sink.

honestly though, the camaro, equinox, malibu, cruze, traverse, tahoe, silverado,

that's a pretty solid lineup. caddy has CTS and SRX to tread water.

LaCrosse, Regal, Terrain, Acadia, good products!

Buick and GMC is the part that can still be pared down over time.

the rest of the brands have been shed per wishes of divine world superpowers.

the same public that argued that they bought a cahmree because it was a better product, should take their own advice and judge the GM product on its merit, not based upon rhetoric or bias, if they want to adhere to their own self created impartial standard.

oh but wait, see, it was never an impartial standard.
