Daniel Becker of the Sierra Club thinks domestic automakers are on suicide watch and Pres. Bush is holding the rope. His thoughts on yesterday's meeting between the Big 3 execs from Detroit and Pres. Bush are certainly less flattering than most news reports. Becker laughs at the fact that Rick Wagoner of GM and Alan Mulally of Ford drove to the White House in one of their company's hybrids, but none of the vehicles (Saturn Vue Green Line and Ford Escape Hybrid) get anywhere near the mileage of Toyota and Honda's best hybrids. He says technology will save American jobs, not political whining. "This is auto mechanics, not rocket science," says Becker.
