-- FROM THE EDITORIAL: As we observed throughout the campaign, Barack Obama gave indications that his election would mean a return to the September 10 mentality, a national-security outlook marked prominently by its lack of seriousness about the terrorist threat. In choosing Eric Holder to be his attorney general, President-Elect Obama has taken a step toward confirming those misgivings.

-- McCain may face bumpy shift from White House run "Now free of the demands required to win the GOP nomination, McCain may have an eye toward regaining his popularity among independents and burnishing his legacy as a straight-talker untethered to strict party orthodoxy. "His reputation has been impaired . . . It took a beating," Mayer said. "He may want to go back to the old straight-talk John McCain with no filters. And he'll stop feeding red-meat populist conservative sound bites, because he doesn't have to." - Alexander Mooney

-- DIERSEN HEADLINE: For decades, Democrats have told minorities and women that Republicans caused all their problems. For decades, Democrats have promised to give minorities and women more preference than Republicans promise to give them. Tragically, many Blacks have fallen for that divisiveness and more tragically, more Hispanics are also falling for that divisiveness.

-- DIERSEN HEADLINE: E.J. Dionne falsely and unethically argues that the Republican Party is "wholly owned by the conservative movement." E.J. Dionne knows full well that the Republican Party is "wholly owned" by people and by organizations that view conservatives a) as just one of many groups under their "big text" and b) as a bunch of "kooks" and "extremists" they would love to drive out of the party. I base this conclusion on lots of experience including serving as a Republican Precinct Committeeman since 1999, serving as your GOPUSA Illinois Editor since 2000, serving as the Chairman to TAPROOT Republicans since 2005, and attending many Republican Party meetings including the 2000, 2004, and 2008 Illinois Republican Party conventions and many CPAC conferences since 2000. Beyond outrageously, the Republican Party lets, if not encourages, people to hold leadership positions in the party who have show by their words and/or by their actions that a) they reject most if not all of the Republican Party platform, b) blame all past, present, and future problems on conservatives, that is, on people who support the Republican Party platform, and c) pander to any anti-conservative organization, group, or individual that gives them or the party lots of money.

-- Why Congress Is Unlikely to Bail Out Detroit’s Carmakers - at Least for Now Democrats want to redirect $25 billion toward automakers, but Republicans are likely to block it - Katherine Skiba

-- DIERSEN HEADLINE: Mitt Romney argues that bankruptcy will save General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler. He is dead wrong. Countries, organizations, and people that have always demonized and denigrated General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler and will always continue to demonize and denigrate GM, Ford, and Chrysler would use their bankruptcy as just one more argument to discourage people and businesses from buying their products.

-- DIERSEN HEADLINE: VERY SAD: Southern lawmakers show their love for foreign automakers and their hatred of northern automakers and their hatred of union workers

-- FROM THE ARTICLE: Toyota, which has 7,000 employees in Georgetown, Ky., supports congressional aid to the Detroit Three. Spokesman Mike Goss said the Japanese company is worried that its base of auto suppliers could suffer if one of the U.S. automakers deteriorates further. Toyota itself announced yesterday that it will lay off much of its 500-member temporary Kentucky work force in the first three months of next year. "We share many (suppliers) with the Detroit Three," Goss said, declining to name specific companies. "We don't want to see them destabilized if something catastrophic happens in Detroit."

-- FROM THE ARTICLE: "The Corvette remains relevant cause its the icon of the automobile industry . . . period," says 2164 Local United Auto Workers president Eldon Renaud. "When you look at it, its still the premier sports car in the United States, the best sports car for the value. We're leading in fuel economy and quality with this vehicle and its still very relevant," says Bowling Green Assembly Plant manager, Paul Graham. Graham believes the Corvette is still performing as well as can be expected in the current economy. "Right now when you look at our market share, our market share in Corvette is actually up 2% this year, in the luxury performance segment which we're in," Graham notes. Although the Corvette has seen a small rise in its market share, the sports car has also seen a 13% drop in sales over the last year. Renaud says if people were able to use equity from their second mortgages to purchase cars, that might change. Fuel efficiency knocks against the Corvette aren't a concern of Graham's because he says it can hold court with anything on the market. "I can tell you from talking to some of our Corvette enthusiasts that drive back to Bowling Green and the museum, we've had people that can regularly get 30 miles a gallon with the corvette on the freeway," Graham explains. So by continuing the Corvette, Graham says they are actually expanding their opportunity to work on advanced technologies such as engine advancements and fuel-efficiency. Renaud feels there is something else that will keep the Corvette important to the car industry many years from now . . . and that's its heritage. "People have seen the car since it was first made. They realized as a child 'I'd like to have that car" and they strive and they save. That the American dream," Graham tells WBKO
