No wonder he has created such a mess of our economy.
I think this is hilarious. Romney couldn't even run his own CAMPAIGN - much less a country. He had no voice, no message, no backbone.

Chrystler is building vehicles in China for the Asian market but they're also EXPANDING US production by adding almost 2500 auto manufacturing jobs here by the end of this year.

OMG! Logic! Naysayers must be following one another over a cliff. For them it does not compute.

How many Americans import their Toyotas from Japan?

No, because manufacturing and shipping a car to China would price the car so high that many wouldn't be able to afford it. To increase sales the company needs to keep the price down so more people can afford to purchase their product.
You have to look at safety and emission standards. A car made for the Chinese market will not be the same as a car made for the American market, which is different than a car made for the Canadian market, which is different than a car made for the European market, etc.

Then there are shipping costs that have to be added to the manufacture cost. Import/export fees would have to be added too.


The cost to purchase a Japanese manufactured Toyota in America is higher than the cost to purchase a Toyota made in Texas, Kentucky, or Mississippi.

Yet interestingly, anyplace where Romney had ever lived or been in politics, where people knew him and his track record, he lost in a big way.

Yeah, the economy was doing wonderfully right up until Obama took office.

Hypocritical partisan hacks are so predictable and boring...

The last two weeks should go down as a period of vindication for former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney and earn him the nickname, “soothsayer of the Western World” — a modern-age Nostradamus.
On Jan. 14, Chrysler’s CEO acknowledged that Jeeps would be built in China, confirming a statement that unfairly earned Romney the moniker “liar of the year.”
Score one.
Romney was wrong.

A creep, liar and ultimately a loser.

Enjoy the presidential inauguration today.

Split hairs, why don't you, 'cause that's the only way you can spin it to suit your way of thinking.

Jobs did go to China. If Jeep wasn't being manufactured in China, there'd be people working on them right here.
Not really. You're making the assumption that if those automobiles for the Chinese market were not built there, they would be built here. But they wouldn't; they would face restrictions and be too expensive as imports into the Chinese market. So that means those automobiles wouldn't be build anywhere at all. The cars for the American market continue to be built here by Americans; the cars for the Chinese market continue to be built there by Chinese. That's about how it works with Hondas and Toyotas in America, too.
