    Barack Obama

    I asked the questions, and you told me in no uncertain terms what you think the President should do with the auto makers. Your reasons for each answer varied, and there were some you disagreed on more than others. With that said, let me give you a sense of some answers.

What should he do? What would you do if you were sitting in the oval office?
