I’m CERTAIN she would have said, “Actually sir, it IS in there. He did say that.”
Actually, I’m not certain she would have said that and I’m glad Bob didn’t. But here is what Romney wrote in 2008:
The American auto industry is vital to our national interest as an employer and as a hub for manufacturing. A managed bankruptcy may be the only path to the fundamental restructuring the industry needs. It would permit the companies to shed excess labor, pension and real estate costs. The federal government should provide guarantees for post-bankruptcy financing and assure car buyers that their warranties are not at risk.
In a managed bankruptcy, the federal government would propel newly competitive and viable automakers, rather than seal their fate with a bailout check.
Obama took a lot of heat for not calling out Romney for his lies in the first debate. I’m betting that those same people screaming for “lie free” debates are going to be relatively quiet about the fact that their Obama is a liar as well.
But that, I AM certain of.
