michael_mooreMICHAEL Moore, an ambulatory advert for American consumerism,  tells Huffington Post readers that he knew General Motors would fail. He just knew it.

“Twenty years ago when I made Roger & Me, I tried to warn people about what was ahead for General Motors. Had the power structure and the punditocracy listened, maybe much of this could have been avoided…

Roger & Me is more of a satire than a documentary about the closure of General Motors’ plant at Flint, Michigan, a place once known as Pontiac City. When it went 30,000 jobs went too. Moore chronicled his attempts to meet with GM CEO Roger Smith.

GM downsized. But to avert the currernt crisis, Moore wanted GM to keep the Flint operation open?
