Does a Government Motors boondoggle mean victory for Ford?

Counter intuitive perhaps but government wants jobs, jobs, jobs and that means stuff, stuff, stuff.  This "stuff" is not cheap so it will be subsidized.  Who benefits from subsidized OEM material?  The maker with "The Badge."  We shall see how the IPO is perceived by the American people and whether it makes for a catostrophic failure in "moving the metal."  We do know this:  Ford is already moving it and that's without "running at a loss."  Of course this could force GM to become a true low cost leader.  Needless to say even with the IPO the government will maintain the largest stake.
