Obama To Autoworkers: Policies Are Working

WARREN, Ohio - President Barack Obama, claiming credit for an uptick on his watch, told autoworkers Tuesday that the economy is on its way back from the brink because of his policies.
Pledging to stand firm with autoworkers in northeast Ohio, Obama told factory workers in this town outside Youngstown that his administration had no choice but to intervene and prevent the collapse of automakers. He told General Motors employees that their company has retooled itself and is heading back to a solid business, in part, because of its work force.
Your survival and the success of our economy depended on making sure that we got the U.S. auto industry back on its feet, Obama said, standing near a production line where compact Chevrolet Cobalts are produced.
He said those small cars were among the most popular under his temporary Cash for Clunkers program that offered drivers up to $4,500 to buy more fuel-efficient automobiles. General Motors has increased production of the compact auto and rehired laid-off workers to restore a second shift here.
Because of the steps we have taken, this plant is about to shift into high gear, Obama said. A hundred and 50 of your co-workers came back to work yesterday. More than a thousand will be coming back to work in less than three weeks as the production of the Cobalt ramps up.

“..... the success of our economy depended on making sure that we got the U.S. auto industry back on its feet, Obama said”
LMAO.... You got’s to get people to buy dem, Obie.
“I seem to be stepping in something here... my gosh, what is this, its rising! And getting higher! What the hell is going!?”
Does it smell like Rahm Emmanuel?
They're going to ramp-up production of a car for which demand has fallen by more than 40%? Oh, wait.... the end of the calendar year approaches - this is when the government fleet vehicles are built. I'll bet Ford doesn't get a single GSA fleet contract this year.
A hundred and 50 of your co-workers came back to work yesterday.WOW pick a number any number will do and only millions still looking for work the Obama plan in action.
Working for communism. Working for fascism. Working for socialism. Not working for the average American.
He rallied them like he was in campaign mode
It IS working great... for employees of Honda, Toyota, Hyundai, Nissan, BMW...
I'm trying to go Galt till the 2012 but I'll do everything in my power to NOT SPEND a dime to help the thugocracy in DC.
