9:24 am
to do nothing and risk a loan to the big three to disintegrate. that could of meant the end of an industry like no other industry. >> we're talking his thing with president in detroit his administration, unpopular bailout has in fact turned into good news story. they're seeing the progress one that has ties to the president's own actions so he is touting those successes today we will be acted more with more in a moment.
