This is Dana Milbank's take on Lent's testimony before Congress--what --caught my eye is this tidbit--"Toyota has been treating the United States the way an imperial power treats a colony: It wants American consumers to buy its products but not to have any say in how they're made. Toyota USA is a sales and marketing company, but manufacturing and safety decisions -- even the decision to have a recall of cars in the United States -- are made in Japan."
This is for all of the Toyota fans you point to the fact that because some Toyotas are made in the US, Toyotas are American. Wrong. Toyota could care less about the American consumer. it's all about sales.
