RED ALERT: Did anti-Obama campaign contributions dictate which Chrysler dealers were shuttered?

Taking out political enemies via dealership closures?? Nah, no one would ever think that this administration would do such a thing! I'm sure it's just a coincidence. Obama is here to save us not to take retribution. No, really!

RED ALERT: Did anti-Obama campaign contributions dictate which Chrysler dealers were shuttered?

A tipster alerted me to an interesting assertion. A cursory review by that person showed that many of the Chrysler dealers on the closing list were heavy Republican donors.
To quickly review the situation, I took all dealer owners whose names appeared more than once in the list. And, of those who contributed to political campaigns, every single one had donated almost exclusively to GOP candidates. While this isn't an exhaustive review, it does have some ominous implications if it can be verified.


Does Obama have a car dealer enemies list?

Additional information on the Chrysler closings - seems there are more than a few successful, high-profile Republicans and Libertarians on the closing list whose dealerships are growing - not shrinking. Things that make you want to go hummmmm! Surly the MSM will jump on this apparent abuse of power!!

Update 2

They really couldn't be this stupid, could they?

Way back in the 1960s, Chrysler Corporation had a very successful ad campaign for its Dodge Division, portraying their Dodge dealers as “the good guys in the white hats.” Some ongoing research about the way the closings of Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep dealerships are being handled indicates that the Obama administration might think that some of the “good guys” are much better than others.
Since Doug Ross reported that many of the dealers on the list of Chrysler outlets to be closed were donors mostly to Republicans, attention has now been focused on the list of dealerships which are slated to remain open. Some preliminary findings, as well as related news, have bombshell potential.

Update 3

(H/T GatewayPundit)

Even GOP Congressman Loses Chrysler Dealership ...Plus Peoria GOP Supporter Losing "5 Star" Business

More Hope and Change...
** Earlier it was reported that the Obama Administration may have targeted GOP donors in deciding which Chrysler dealerships would have to close their doors.
** Last night it was discovered that a Big Dem Donor Group was allowed to keep all 6 Chrysler dealerships open.... And, their local competitors were eliminated by Obama's task force.
** The closings also tend to be in "Red" Counties where Obama lost.

Now this...
Rep. Vern Buchanan (R-Fla) lost his Chrysler dealership in Florida.

Update 4

Is Obama closing GOP car dealers?

There appears to be a side to the Chrysler bankruptcy that has the look of an ugly partisanship not seen in this town since Tricky Dick was in the White House composing his enemies list and checking it twice every night while watching the evening TV newscast.

  1. Don't look for this to be seriously investigated anytime soon by the media or the government. I think it would be wise for people to keep their name off of such lists.
