The Washington Post's chief fact checker Glen Kessler on Friday stood by his original ruling of "four Pinocchios" for Mitt Romney's much-maligned Jeep ad that ran toward the end of the 2012 campaign, despite protestations from a top Romney adviser.
The ad was widely panned for misleading voters into thinking that Jeep would begin outsourcing jobs to China as a result of the Obama administration's auto rescue, a point that Romney strategist Stuart Stevens claimed has since been vindicated. In a letter sent earlier this week, Stevens said that Kessler should "take another look" at the accuracy of the ad in light of Chrysler's announcement that the company will begin building Jeep models in China.
But Kessler was unpersuaded:
So let’s review:
Romney first said “all production” of Jeeps would be moved to China. Not true.
Then a Romney spokesman said Chrysler was adding jobs in China and not creating them in the United States. Not true either.
Then the ad said:“Obama sold Chrysler to Italians who are going to build Jeeps in China. Mitt Romney will fight for every American job.” This is a smarmy way of restating the previous incorrect statements with an air of plausible deniability.
There is no evidence that any American jobs will be lost as a result of the Chrysler deal in China. In fact, greater success in China might well strengthen the overall company.
With all due respect to Stevens, the claim that Romney turned out to be right is simply not accurate. We fail to see how the argument used to defend Romney against charges of outsourcing — which this column often argued was mostly bogus — can be turned on its head in this particular situation.
Meanwhile, the ad has other serious problems — such as mischaracterizing the PolitiFact column, ignoring the context of the Detroit News endorsement and miscasting Obama’s role in the sale to Fiat. We reaffirm our earlier ruling of Four Pinocchios.

Currently Jeeps are not sold in China, the Jeep model planned for China is said to be some sort of SUV and will be built specifically for the Asian market.

Auto's for US sale are equipped with dozens of features that are not required in China and elsewhere in Asia. The Jeeps planned for China will not meet US emissions or safety standards.

There are currently no plans to build the Wrangler anywhere but Toledo.

I remember Ghost trying to deny he posted as Wilhem when Waxman busted him. It was waaay obvious Ghost was caught, but the numbmut Ghost/Old Raider/Wilhelm/ Pope John finally stopped lying about it and gave up.
I didn't know he was also "Margaret", but I'm certain you are correct. The left knows no shame.
Should be "as dumb as they"...don't any of you hydra-headed pusillanimous paranoid poseurs understand pronoun case usage? Maybe if you didn't spend all your time on here lyin' your "collective" carolasses off, you'd have time to study.

OBAMA VIOLATED U.S. CONSTITUTION

WASHINGTON (AP)-- President Barack Obama violated the Constitution when he bypassed the Senate to fill vacancies on a labor relations panel, a federal appeals court panel ruled Friday.

A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit said that Obama did not have the power to make three recess appointments last year to the National Labor Relations Board.

The unanimous decision is an embarrassing setback for the president, who made the appointments after Senate Republicans spent months blocking his choices for an agency they contended was biased in favor of unions.

The ruling also throws into question Obama's recess appointment of Richard Cordray to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Cordray's appointment, also made under the recess circumstance, has been challenged in a separate case.

Maybe if you didn't spend all your time on here lyin' that you're a teacher (when you're never teaching) and taking care of your illegitimate children instead of worshipping the incompetent Obama, you'd have time to tell the truth and improve your taste in politics.
