The ad speaks to the small-business owner, but I wonder how it plays with the out-of -work folks who make GM vehicles as opposed to selling them.
Whatever the case, it's likely not the sort of storyline GM needs this week. Aside from Joel Ewanick's much-publicized departure, the company is reporting that last month's sales were down 6% (Ford was down 4% and Chrysler was up 13%).
Indeed, Drudge Report has devoted a number of lines to GM today. One link is to a story about the Chevy Volt being the centerpiece of a planned community. Drudge's headline? "Taxpayers Help Fund Chevy Volt Village!"
