Obama didn't fix the reasons why GM went bankrupt. He just threw cash at them. He has since outright lied and said the money has been paid back. Not one penny of car profits have been sent to the government to pay off the bailout. They paid off a small portion of the total money they got with other government handouts $$$. Obama knows this, but blatantly lies for Election Purposes. Are you okay with this?

Are you okay with Obama being outraged at bank bonuses during the bail outs and then flip flopping on it (for a 2nd time) so they can get bank bonuses?

So it is okay to actually put Detroit through bankruptcy like Obama did (circumventing the law to benefit the UAW) as long as you don't actually say it like Romney. No offense, but you seem silly.

What are you talking about? I made an observation of Romney. I didn't bring up Obama. I happen to not really mind if Romney won. I will vote for Obama, but I wouldn't panic if Romney won though.

100% Proof Mitt Romney Flip Flops Like A Fish On Dry Land - YouTube
This true a true statement.
Replace the bold and italics with President Obama and Democrats, where appropriate. and that will also be a true statement.

I would say that both have changed their positions on issues, though Romney has changed his positions more than Obama.

You couldn't be more disingenuous if you tried (which, of course, you are) by taking this remark completely and totally out of context. But then that's what you leftwingers do.

That is fair, but I would disagree and say that I know of no politicians who have flip flopped more than Obama the past 5 years.

Hell, yeah, let Detroit go bankrupt. And Philly. And CA.

If they can't get their sheet together, let 'em die!

Good riddance!
