UAW willing to go the extra mile

Senator Bob Corker basically came out of nowhere to insert himself into the auto industry negotiations. During his two years in the Senate he has been invisible. Now he steps forward and asks the UAW to take pay cuts.

The UAW president responds in the video clip below:

CNN now reports that the White House is considering using a portion of the $700 billion bailout funds to help the auto industry.

From CNN:

The Bush administration said Friday that it will consider using the money set aside to help banks and Wall Street to rescue the auto industry.

The statement — a change in the administration’s long-held position — might be the last best chance to keep troubled automakers General Motors (GM, Fortune 500) and Chrysler LLC out of bankruptcy.

The defeat of a $14 billion bailout plan in the Senate late Thursday left the administration little choice but to tap the $700 billion bailout approved by Congress in October, the Troubled Asset Relief Program or TARP, according to White House Press Secretary Dana Perino. (more… )

The Errington Thompson Show 3/3/07

We are coming up on our 1 year anniversary of our show. What should we do?

Finally, I get my computer to work like I want. I’m able to play audio clips. We start off with Things that make you go…mmmm.

Bush’s approval ratings have fallen to the lowest that I have ever seen. Even his strong hold on die hard Republicans is slippin’.

Walter Reed story keeps revealing more and more problems. Dana Priest of the Washington Post should get a cheer from the American people. Where is the Republican outrage? The question is who is really supporting the troops.

I welcome Aviva Aron Dine from the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities to the show. President Bush’s number one priority is clearly extending the tax cuts. Great discussion.

After the break, I chat with Douglas Johnston, PhD from the International Center for Religion and Diplomacy. We discuss how we would be a lot farther and better off in the Middle East if we understood religion. (If you get a chance please read this guy’s CV. He is very impressive. I’m very pleased that he has agreed to be on my show.)

Last segment of the show seems to have been eaten by the computer gremlins. Sorry.

Remember I’m on iTunes and several other podcasting services.
