Despite his opposition to bailout, Romney claims `a lot of credit' for auto industry success

Jae C. Hong/Associated Press - Republican presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney speaks at a town hall-style meeting in Euclid, Ohio, Monday, May 7, 2012.
By Associated Press, Published: May 7

EUCLID, Ohio - Campaigning in the backyard of America's auto industry, Mitt Romney re-ignited the bailout debate by suggesting he deserves "a lot of credit" for the recent successes of the nation's largest car companies.

That claims comes in spite of his stance that Detroit should have been allowed to go bankrupt.
The presumptive Republican presidential nominee told a Cleveland television station on Monday that President Barack Obama followed his lead when he ushered auto companies through a managed bankruptcy soon after taking office.

"I pushed the idea of a managed bankruptcy, and finally when that was done, and help was given, the companies got back on their feet," Romney said in an interview inside a Cleveland-area auto parts maker. "So, I'll take a lot of credit for the fact that this industry has come back." ...

James Carville thought the story was from the Onion. lol

WAPost cont'd: The course Romney advocated differed greatly from the one that was ultimately taken. GM and Chrysler went into bankruptcy on the strength of a massive bailout that Romney opposed. Neither Republican President George W. Bush nor Democratic President Barack Obama believed the automakers would have survived without that backup from taxpayers.

Romney opposed taxpayer help.

"If General Motors, Ford and Chrysler get the bailout that their chief executives asked for yesterday, you can kiss the American automotive industry goodbye," Romney wrote in a November 2008 opinion article in the New York Times. "It won't go overnight, but its demise will be virtually guaranteed."

General Motors posted a record profit last year. ...

"First, Mitt will replace Obama as President of the United States."

that's a helluva boost to the economy right there.

George Bush proved that the American public is extremely gullible. Even when the facts showed that he lied, a significant portion of the populace still believed him. I think a third of Americans still believe that Iraq was responsible for 9/11.

It appears that Romney and other Republican politicians have adopted the Bush strategy of lying no matter how outrageous it is. Then keep repeating the lie. Your supporters and uninformed Independents will believe you.
