Or threw under a bus, or shoved in front of a train .... as some might say.

Every liberal's favorite author and commentator, Michelle Malkin has written another story about how Obama's bailout of General Motors has created unspoken casualties.

It seems the non-union workers really got stomped.

Pensioners, secretaries, technicians, engineers and sales employees, dealers and bondholders all got nailed bigtime.
(mainly from Delphi/GM auto parts company)

OK for the people that were able to retain their jobs and benefits.

But it looks like too many others were skimmed.

The bankruptcy was devastating.

Malkin says:

Let's clear the fumes (again), shall we? The bailout pain was not distributed equally. It was redistributed politically.

The White House fairy tale about the Happily Ever After Auto Bailout is missing a crucial, bloody page. While President Obama bragged about "standing by American workers" at a rowdy United Auto Workers meeting Tuesday, he failed to acknowledge how the Chicago-style deal threw tens of thousands of nonunion autoworkers under the bus.

In a campaign pep rally/sermon billed as a "policy speech," Obama nearly broke his arm patting himself on the back for placing his "bets" (read: our money) on the $85 billion federal auto industry rescue. "Three years later," he crowed, "that bet is paying off for America." Big Labor brass cheered Obama's citation of GM's "highest profits in its 100-year history" as the room filled with militant UAW chants of "union made."
