Democrats and Republicans have slammed Mitt Romney for his 2008 view that Detroit should "go bankrupt," but the presumptive GOP presidential nominee said Monday his views played a big part in the auto industry's recovery.
"I'll take a lot of credit for the fact that this industry's come back," Romney told WEWS-TV in Cleveland. Speaking after a campaign stop at a metal stamping facility in nearby Euclid, Romney said the industry needed to enter a "managed bankruptcy" process in order to fully recover and that was what eventually helped American automakers get back on their feet.

Time to jerk this guy’s chain to the right...paging Cain, Bachmann, Newt, Perry, Paul.
Left to himself, he’s clueless.

Mittens supports screwing bondholders. The man is a DEMOCRAT. Gov’t motors will never get one dime of my cash Robomany.

How impetuous is the Backstabber.
This is a little like Romney “taking” other peoples’ wives
as his own they die?
This is also a little like him claiming to have
marched with Martin Luther King.

Not only did he do nothing .. he wants to take credit for something ... liberal? Oh my Holy Hell we can not elect this guy. Gut it through 2012, let Romney get slaughtered in the General, and let’s pick up the pieces.
The man is a liar and an unmitigated fool.
