Default New GM commercial epically lies to you.

Anyone seen this commercial?



And Obama claimed the exact same thing.

It's not a lie. It's 100% true, they paid their loan back. With another loan. Not that it matters, most of the gov't bailout went into actually buying GM, not the loan. Gov't still owns 61% of GM.

At the least, it is a very extreme deception, though I would classify it as a lie.

The irony is that they are using the same borrowed money to spread this crap.

He isn't saying anything that is untrue. He never states where he gets the money from. So technically it's not a lie nor is it deception.

Does it make them tricky SOB's, of course.

Did General Motors Really Repay Its Taxpayer Bailout?

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

- Joseph Goebbels

Seems relevant to this topic.
