Mitt Romnocchio is back down in the mud lying like a four year-old claiming the auto loans extended by President Obama went to hire workers in China, not the U.S. (link):
We've clearly entered some parallel universe during these last few days,” GM spokesman Greg Martin said. “No amount of campaign politics at its cynical worst will diminish our record of creating jobs in the U.S. and repatriating profits back to this country.Separately, Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne refuted the Romney TV ad that Chrysler may move all Jeep production from the U.S. to China (link):
“Jeep production will not be moved from the United States to China,” Marchionne stated in the e-mail. “The numbers tell the story,” followed by specific investments Chrysler has made at its plants in Detroit, Toledo and Belvidere, Ill. “Those include more than $1.7 billion to produce the successor of the Jeep Liberty and hire about 1,100 workers on a second shift by 2013.”These two businessmen, Martin and Marchionne, aren't liberal activists trying to smear Romney. They are titans of industry who are rightfully disgusted by Romney pathetically trying to mislead American workers in Michigan and Ohio.
Romney's lies do even greater harm by smearing the reputation of GM and Chrysler, which has just gotten back on its feet. If Romney would mislead Americans so easily about a vital, American, industry then what else would he lie about? Apparently he cares less about workers and more about winning political points at the cost of American jobs. Lying about jobs and trade practices to hard-working, blue collar, middle class, Americans is pathetic for a man who keeps his money in foreign banks and invests heavily in dubious, Chinese companies.
Those companies include one discovered to have sold pirated movies and t.v. shows, and another one was busted for selling bootleg college exams to American students (link). You have to wonder why Romney invests in China while telling the auto companies to go bankrupt. Standing up for American workers? I think not. That would be President Obama. Besides rescuing the domestic auto industry, President Obama has brought more major trade actions against China than any other president. According to the Center for American Progress. That includes standing up to China to protect American tire manufacturers who rely heavily upon the American auto industry (link). It seems clear that Mitt Romney cares about more about politics than supporting the American worker.
