Ford is closing plants all over the world to stay solvent, and has already announced that they will never build another production facility in the United States again.

Ah.... That doesn't mean they won't take an existing plant revamp or expand on existing field, and not go to a green-field and start new or rehab an intercity brown-field.

Maybe, but I wouldn’t bet on it. The “Big Three” know that their survival depends on getting out of the US. GM and Chrysler had an opportunity to get rid of the UAW in bankruptcy, but Obama got in the middle of it and crashed the opportunity. I am just hoping that the pissed off judge reopens the whole GM bankruptcy. I was with Romney on this one; GM should have gone through a normal bankruptcy and may still get the opportunity ( that is unless it goes under in the meantime). Ford was somewhat fortunate that it had a good product line when it counted, because the year before the GM/Chrysler debacle, the industry was saying that of the three, Ford had by far the worst labor cost structure of any of them. There is no question that Ford had better top management when it counted. GM had a bunch of limp dicks.
