McCain: 'Lenin would be smiling' on Chrysler decision

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Thursday that the ghost of the Soviet revolutionary Vladimir Lenin would be "smiling" on the Obama administration's impending announcement on Chrysler.

Reports have swirled this morning that the administration would ease Chrysler into a prepackaged bankruptcy, leading McCain to tweet:
President purposes government/union takeover of GM and Chrysler - Lenin would be smiling...


Incidentally, McCain and Obama are set to meet in the Oval Office this afternoon, where the two former presidential campaign adversaries sit down together.
