We all have to notice that mitten is an extremely fearful guy. But who does he fears the most. Let me see ah, oh yeah, he fears the rabid tea party the most. Mitten might talk all this moderate smack to get elected president, but he will govern to the right because he didn't want to be like Senator hatch and get primaries if he gets the presidency. A matter of fact he might even go further than the average right winger, and suck up to the lunatics to prove he's severely conservative. I am more concerned about mitten and this country, because mitten have something to prove to the tight wing nuts.
Mitt Romney said that if Obama bailed out the auto industry we can kiss it good bye. Well Mr. Romney you were wrong GM is back better than ever.
Well said.. Romney sucks
"if it were up to likely GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, "we wouldn't have an auto industry." well, I tell you what if it were up to Mitts we woudn't have a country because he would have bankrupted it and sell it to Canada. Its very simple to climb the ladder from corporate raider to a something bigger like Nation coffers raider
Rahm Emanuel is right on. This was the republican plan, to do away with the American Auto Industry. Republicans have always favored outsourcing all manufacturing jobs.
Hello to bad economy
"llet Detroit go bankrupt".
Rahm is correct again. Mittens is completely out of touch with Americans with his severely conservative anti women, anti worker, anti senior, anti veteran, anti minority, anti poor people, anti middle class, and anti college student positions.
I forgot to add that Mittens is a habitual liar, a flip flopper, and a severely right wingnut republican taliban puppet for big oil, big insurance, Wall Street, big banks and billionaires.

He got money from taxpayers to "save" the Utah Olympics. But he wouldn't allow money to keep real Americans employed.
Know what Romney is? He's a vulture capitalist. HE has to get something from every deal or there won't be a deal.
No one had the capital to extend to the auto industry in the months following the Wall Street collapse. Auto sales had plummeted, and auto makers were feeling the pinch of reduced operating capital. Their day to day operations couldn't sustain themselves over the short run during the sales drought.
Not even Bain Capital was willing to involve themselves with GM or Chrysler. They would have gone through a liquidation, not a restructuring. While Ford declined to participate, Ford would have been destroyed along with GM and Chrysler as the support industries collapsed from the sudden loss of two of the big three.
