Romney needs your vote. So he wants you to forget that he’s the guy that called on the government to “Let Detroit Go Bankrupt”. He would also like you to forget that President Obama’s successful bailout of the auto industry helped facilitate Detroit auto maker’s return to solid financial footing and rescued more than 100 million jobs.

Mitt Romney may be having difficulty remembering what he says from one day to the next, but we in Michigan will never forget his predictions of the imminent extinction of the auto industry if American taxpayers were foolish enough to support their reckless policies in the form of a financial handout. According to the New York Times article written by Romney, a bailout would encourage automakers to remain on a collision course with financial ruin. “Without the bailout Detroit will need to drastically restructure itself. With it, the automakers will stay the course—the suicidal course of declining market shares, insurmountable labor and retiree burdens, technology atrophy, product inferiority and never-ending job losses.”

Well, Romney, we got the check and your predictions of doom and gloom couldn’t be further from the truth. GM and Chrysler paid back their loans years ahead of schedule, and the auto industry is enjoying record profits and job growth. No thanks to you. Now you want to take credit for our accomplishments by claiming that your calls for managed bankruptcy led the auto industry back to prosperity. Really?

Detroit auto makers have proven that they can thrive in the face of adversity, and since Romney needs our vote to become the next president of the United States he wants to claim he had a role in our success. Detroit survived because as Eminem so famously proclaimed. “This is Detroit, and this is what we do." The Auto industry is stronger than ever because people like Barack Obama were willing to take a chance and invest in our future. While people like Mitt Romney sat on the sidelines and predicted our demise. Romney may not remember but auto workers will never forget.

  1. Has anyone ever seen bad karma obummer go into the hood and alot funds to clean it up and provide jobs for the 35% black youth unemployment? I don’ think so because he’s been too busy playing golf with rich Wallstreet white guys whom he’s given billions to. Now, still going to vote for him because he’s half black?

    Yes Romney said that he was in favor of taking GM thought bankruptcy in order to help the company.
    doesn’t mean go out of business! People need to get past political spin to find truth. I don’t see this as Romney lying about what he said. I see it as Obama to paint a picture that doesn’t fit Romney. We can go back and see what he said

    This is part of what Mitt “etch-a-sketch” Romney said in his Let Detroit Go Bankrupt op-ed column:

    “If General Motors, Ford and Chrysler get the bailout that their chief executives asked for yesterday, you can kiss the American auto industry goodbye. It won’t go overnight, but its demise will be virtually guaranteed. Without that bailout, Detroit will need to drastically restructure itself…Detroit needs a turnaround, not a check.”

    President Obama bailed out the auto industry contrary to what Mitt advocated. As a result of the bail out the auto industry is not only alive and well but thriving. This was a bold move by President Obama. Now Mitt “etch-a-sketch” Romney want to act like he never advocated AGAINST a bail out for the auto industry and said Let Detroit Go Bankrupt.

    Mitt didn’t have a problem with the title of his op-ed column when he wrote it but now that his stance is a liability he want to airbrush his history. Prsident Obama politely said that Romney suffers from Romnesia. The truth is Romney is a notorious liar and if a person will lie they will steal and cheat. Where are those tax returns Mitt?

    If you do your research on Romney and look at the you tube video footage about what Romney said about the auto bailout you will find that he was in favor of helping the auto industry by taking them through bankruptcy. If any of you know anything about bankruptcy is doesn’t mean liquidation like the Obama team is trying to imply, here is a link to that video in it’s entirety on you tube.

    And his co-haters of MY President wants us to forget that when the Bush/Cheney era ended, OBL was still free. On the weekend when President Obama announced the capture and death of the mastermind behind the September 11, 2001 attacks, Mitt and his co-haters wants us to forget about the time frame and want the credit to go to Dubya. Mitt and company may want us to forget things, but we control our own minds-unlike the people that listen to Glenn and Rush.
