Jargon Alert

Quoting USA Today here, but I actually heard it first on NPR this evening:

After struggling for years to trim its dealer network, [Chrysler president Jim] Press says, the automaker is taking advantage of the fact that being in bankruptcy court frees it from state franchise protection laws. "The bankruptcy process does allow us a once-in-a-lifetime chance to accomplish a right-sized, realigned dealer body," he says.
I can't help but think jargon like that is a sign of a company that's too busy talking to itself to listen to customers.
