4. 1. Obama did bail out GM.
2. Obama is threatening to stop bailing them out if they don't play ball.

"my thinking (hope) is that obama has a bit more to the green initiative than we realize right now, and maybe GM didn't want to play ball."

While I think green is a part of it, it's mostly about making any money.
