In the past few years, the river of excuses flowing from GM's upper management has far surpassed that of any government official who was wrapped up in the Katrina debacle; Rick Wagoner and the gang have no problem whatsoever playing the Blame Game. Jonathan Faley at Forbes says now that an agreement has been hammered out with the UAW on healthcare, it's time for the excuses to stop and for GM to address what he feels to be its ultimate challenge - building world-class cars. That does sound a bit more difficult than finger-pointing, but probably has better long-term profit potential.
