"In a New York Times op-ed piece in 2008, Romney wrote, 'If General Motors, Ford and Chrysler get the bailout that their chief executives asked for yesterday, you can kiss the American automotive industry goodbye.' This week, in an interview on CBS, Romney defended himself against critics of his work at Bain Capital by equating what he did as a corporate restructuring specialist with Obama’s temporary takeover of General Motors and Chrysler in 2009. 'In the general election,' Romney said, 'I’ll be pointing out that the president took the reins at General Motors and Chrysler – closed factories, closed dealerships, laid off thousands and thousands of workers – he did it to try to save the business.'"

Mitt Romney freaks out Rush Limbaugh with bailout talk - latimes.com

Oh yeah, that's the way to go. Say what you did at Bain is just like what Obama did on auto bailouts and flip flop to do it, no less.

What does this man really stand for? Who the heck knows? Every side on every issue, that's Romney.

I don't know how you guys keep track of their positions. Is it odd weeks that Newt is pro mandate or even weeks? And is Romney supposed to be on the alternate schedule? Too confusing to me, I'll stick with the Dem this year.

Then welcome to Greece and the Eurozone Financial crisis.
it will only take 4 more years of Obama to have America in the same pit as Europe.
Heck S&P Downgraded a bunch of countries in Europe today.

Also saw an interesting interview on the CBS evening news about Romney and Bain capital and one of their flops was in the Steel Industry and Romney Cost them jobs.......... Anyway with half a Brain knows the Steel Industry has been on the decline since the 70s and actually i was amazed Romney and Bain even considering trying to save any part of the Steel Industry.
Yet Bain Capital helped get the giant Staples up and going which now employs over 65,000

Oooh, that is a good idea.

Let's start with Illinois, add Connecticut, then Rhode Island, Vermont, sorry Gov, but have to add Massachusetts, New Jersey (Chris will have to move), Minnesota, New York, Wisconsin and Maine. Not much left of the formally blue U.S.

Oh well, they can join the PIIGSs and the Euro, which is really what their tax structures and pension guarantees mimic anyway. Amazing what you see when the scar tissue finally heals.
