Stupid Steering

Perfect example of poor leadership, being quoted in the press that you have a $1500 benefit cost disadvantage. Immediately the public thinks you're overpriced. How about calling Buick and Pontiac damaged brands? More genius! Only goes to show you that you can't learn leadership by getting an MBA. Nothing against higher education, it's desirable, just that having bean counters and washed up, past their prime execs mingling with rejects from other failed positions is not the right chemistry for the top of GM.
