This won’t endear the Obama administration to his liberal critics.
According to a new book out from Steven Rattner, Rahm Emanuel once said “F&^K the UAW” during the auto bailout negotiations, probably in reference to some demand they made during the heady days that was getting in the way of a smooth operation. The detail was noted by The Huffington Post (via Jalopnik).
And apparently Obama once said: “Why can’t they make a Corolla?” referring to American automakers.
So basically The White House hates unions and thinks Japan’s cars are better. Got it.
