Wagoner waves ruffle Janesville GM feathers

Yes, I've mocked the GM Retention Task Force before, but they dish up new fun:

Wagoner said the Janesville community should not be "overly optimistic" about the plant reopening[,] and retooling the facility is "not what we're looking at," according to a recording of Wagoner's remarks to reporters at a Tuesday breakfast in Washington, D.C.

That surprised Tim Cullen, leader of the local GM Retention Task Force, and Rep. Mike Sheridan because lawmakers and leaders on the task force hadn't had any contact with GM officials.

"I'm kind of in a wait-and-see what that really means," Sheridan said.

Um, yeah - that lack of contact? It's because they aren't "looking at" reopening or retooling the facility.

And they don't mind that you keep calling. It's easy enough for personal assistants to delete those amusing but pathetically grasping and desperate missives.
