Barack Obama, our next President

Romney's new ad about Jeeps and Italy is f-you dishonest. You probably know the background. Bloomberg News moved a confusingly worded article last week suggesting, if you didn't read it closely, that Jeep (under Chrysler, owned by Fiat) was sending all its production to China. Romney said this on the trail.
I originally cut Romney a break here--some aide handed him a news article that was sloppily or strangely written, he read it on the fly, he decided to throw it in there. Not such a crime.
But then Chrysler ripped Romney and said no way, this is not true. Chrysler is thinking about putting plants in China down the road to try to increase market share there. But as for the here and now and the U.S. market, Chrysler is not only not cutting back domestic Jeep production but expanding it, investing $500 million in the Toledo, Ohio Jeep plant.
At that point, even most political campaigns would have just dropped it. They wouldn't apologize, because campaigns don't do that, but a normal campaign would just drop it and try to move on.
So what did Romney's campaign do? It cut a TV ad doubling down on the claim, cleverly worded so as to suggest that the Obama administration sold out America (and Ohio) by selling Chrysler to the Italians who are moving production to China.
Jon Cohn of TNR has a good write-up here that goes into more detail on domestic auto industry employment, which was cratering before the bailout and has picked up briskly since. The "say anything" credo of the Romney campaign continues and mushrooms. I think this one might backfire though. Are the workers and voters of Toledo amused being knowingly misrepresented and used like this? I'd like to see an Obama ad featuring some of the workers at this very plant.

Speaking of China ...

January 2012

"Earlier this year, GM's CEO Dan Akerson was quoted as saying that the automaker was looking to expand production in China by 760,000 units (see China: 17 January 2012: GM Plans More Plants in China)."

February 2012

"GM Receives Regulatory Approval for 300,000-Unit Plant in China's Hubei Province."

A good offense is a good defense? Sorry.....

Jeep in China

There are times when the reading of a newswire report generates storms originated by a biased or predisposed approach.

On Oct. 22, 2012, at 11:10 a.m. ET, the Bloomberg News report “Fiat Says Jeep® Output May Return to China as Demand Rises” stated “Chrysler currently builds all Jeep SUV models at plants in Michigan, Illinois and Ohio. Manley (President and CEO of the Jeep brand) referred to adding Jeep production sites rather than shifting output from North America to China.”

Despite clear and accurate reporting, the take has given birth to a number of stories making readers believe that Chrysler plans to shift all Jeep production to China from North America, and therefore idle assembly lines and U.S. workforce. It is a leap that would be difficult even for professional circus acrobats.

Let’s set the record straight: Jeep has no intention of shifting production of its Jeep models out of North America to China. It’s simply reviewing the opportunities to return Jeep output to China for the world’s largest auto market. U.S. Jeep assembly lines will continue to stay in operation. A careful and unbiased reading of the Bloomberg take would have saved unnecessary fantasies and extravagant comments.

Bill Clinton was suspended from practicing law in Arkansas and paid a $250,000 fine as a result of the Monica Lewinski incident. He also paid a $850,000 settlement over the Paula Jones incident. He was also disbarred from practicing law in front of the Supreme Court. So Bill Clinton, a disbarred lawyer, a President who was impeached for lying under oath, is asking the American people to believe him when he says the best thing for the country is four more years of Obama. Just wanted to make sure I had that right.
And so the disbarred liar lawyer is teaming up with Hair-Plug Joe Gaffer in Ohio to lie all the way to the end of the Earth for the Boy Messiah the Liar-In-Chief.

Gee. I think we'd get more honesty from Monica Lewinsky and Bernie Madoff than from these professional Used Car Salesmen.

Romney's approval as Governor of Massachusetts:
Feb. 2003 - 56%
June 2003 - 56%
Sep. 2003 - 61%
Nov. 2003 - 66%
April 2004 - 58%
Sep. 2004 - 55%
March 2005 - 50%
Aug. 2005 - 50%
March 2006 - 46%-> after announcing not running for re-election

His numbers dropped only after March 2006 when he announced he would not run for reelection until December 2006.

Also, many in Massachusetts had grown dissatisfied with Romney's frequent out-of-state travel and shift toward promoting socially conservative issues as he began to focus increasingly on national rather than state politics.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Governorship_of_...

His approval ratings in a predominantly Democrat state was actually quite high until the very end of his last year in office.

Don't think Bill has much room to call anyone a liar.

But he did say Bain Capital's record was "sterling".

And he did say at an Ohio rally this month (supposedly supporting Obama) that the President has not fixed the economy, nor achieved any form of recovery and validated Mitt Romney's words from the most recent debate when he said this:

"Governor Romney's argument is...it's not fixed, so fire him and put me in. It is true, we're not fixed. When President Obama looked into the eyes of that man who said at the debate, I had so much hope four years ago, and I don't now...I thought he was gonna cry. Because he knows that it's not fixed."

Seems Bill might be having some mixed feelings.
