Congress has Run the Wars So Well, Let's Bring that Management Flair Home

I cannot tell you how gratified I am that Congress is finally putting its foot down to impose some decent managerial oversight on an operation that's been undermining the American economy and has the potential to lose taxpayers tens of billions of dollars.

What?! The government is going to oversee the auto industry?!

Oh. I thought it was going to be The Wars.

From an original estimate of $50-$60 billion, we are now looking at a total expense in Iraq and Afghanistan of somewhere between $1 trillion to $3 trillion.

You can watch the tab run up in real time here.

And the Detroit 3 are being made to dance for $25 billion $34 billion $17 billion $15 billion?

If only Chris Dodd and his pals would look themselves in the mirror when both American blood and money are on the line.
