LOL now this is good for laughs
can you even COUNT Obama's flips?
What did Obama do for our auto industry??
GM owe us billions!

I would wager that by Nov, Mr Obama is crying like the girl he shoved when kids
I am counting the days!

if we knew what was in the bailout I don't think many of us would have approved.

Obama lost the flip flop issue when he changed his position on gay marriage, closing Quantanamo Bay, cutting the budget in half by the end of his first term, not raising taxes on those earning less than $250,000, taking PAC money, NAFTA, Partial Birth abortions, "you can keep the health plan you have", the surge in Iraq and on and on and on.....

Frankly, what we told ourselves at General Motors was we're sure he's a good governor, but he doesn't know what he's talking about in this instance ... What he conveniently forgets is that there was zero liquidity in the country ... There was no way to fund a private Chapter 11 — even though, believe me, General Motors really tried to get private debt financing or organize a private Chapter 11. But there was no money to do it.

-- Bob Lutz, conservative Republican and retired vice chairman of GM and author of the book Car Guys vs. Bean Counters: The Battle for the Soul of American Business commenting on $Willard $Romney's (mind-boggling) "I'll take a lot of credit" for the auto industry's comeback quote last week




By the way, here's what conservative Republican Lutz had to say about our fine President on this issue:


He just went in and he put the right team together and he got it done and the results are there for all to see, and I think you have to give credit where credit is due.


Conservative Republican Lutz was at GM at the time of the crisis.



Just sooooooooooo refreshing to (finally) find a con who is not afraid to acknowledge THE TRUTH...

Romney Shifts Gears On Auto Industry Bailout : NPR
Yeah, I would be praising someone who took my butt out of the fire. The management of GM and Chrysler should be put in jail for negotiating contracts that could never be fulfilled. Why the taxpayer should get stuck with the bill is beyond me.
