NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- I find it frustrating to see a company do all the right things and get punished for it. Looking back at the actions of Ford (F - Get Report) reminds me of the old saying "no good deed goes unpunished."

I will begin with Bob Lutz, a self-described "car guy" who I respect, but left me scratching my head yesterday after reading a piece he wrote on Forbes' Web site. Lutz recently wrote an article on Forbes about the possibility of GM declaring bankruptcy again.
