Liar Liar Pants On Fire
Romney keeps on saying "attacking me personally is not going to solve the problem", but his dilemma is that he keeps on heaping more and more lies every day. After trying relentlessly to spin his “Let Detroit go bankrupt” article in New York Times with lies, he came up with even fresher lies only next week.
This is what Romney had written in the New York Times article, “IF General Motors, Ford and Chrysler get the bailout that their chief executives asked for yesterday, you can kiss the American automotive industry goodbye. It won’t go overnight, but its demise will be virtually guaranteed.” Which part of this statement is suggesting what Obama actually did in rescuing the auto companies was in line with Romney’s recommendations? Well, fact notwithstanding, Romney claimed that Obama followed his advice.
Detroit Free Press had this last week, “Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney repeated a false claim Thursday night that Chrysler Group may move all Jeep vehicle production to China…Romney’s comments came the same day that the Free Press reported that 1,100 new Chrysler workers will begin making the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango SUVs at a plant in Detroit next week.”
During a rally in Ohio Mitt Romney said in front of 12,000 supporters, “I saw a story today that one of the great manufacturers in this state, Jeep, now owned by the Italians, is thinking of moving all production to China. I will fight for every good job in America, I’m going to fight to make sure trade is fair, and if it’s fair, America will win.” His ignorant low information supporters cheered him even more.
Chrysler’s vice president of communications, Gualberto Ranieri, protested the next day, “Let’s set the record straight: Jeep has no intention of shifting production of its Jeep models out of North America to China. It’s simply reviewing the opportunities to return Jeep output to China, for the world’s largest auto market. U.S. Jeep assembly lines will continue to stay in operation.”
In reality, Chrysler is investing $500 million at its Toledo Plant and wants to add 1,105 new workers by the third quarter of 2013. The new addition is to build an all-new SUV that will replace the Jeep Liberty.Continued on the next page
