Yes, let's dissect this, shall we? Using direct quotes from two separate Obama speechs... HIS OWN WORDS!:

February 2008 campaign speech then-Sen. Obama gave at the Janesville plant: "And I believe that if our government is there to support you, and give you the assistance you need to re-tool and make this transition, that this plant will be here for another hundred years. The question is not whether a clean energy economy is in our future, itís where it will thrive. I want it to thrive right here in the United States of America; right here in Wisconsin; and thatís the future Iíll fight for as your president."

And more:

October 11, 2008, the Associated Press: "Reports that the GM plant I visited in Janesville may shut down sooner than expected are a painful reminder of the tough economic times facing working families across this country," Obama said in a statement released by his Wisconsin campaign organization. "This news is also a reminder that Washington needs to finally live up to its promise to help our automakers compete in our global economy. As president, I will lead an effort to retool plants like the GM facility in Janesville so we can build the fuel-efficient cars of tomorrow and create good-paying jobs in Wisconsin and all across America." Of course, now YOU know the truth... that these jobs were OUTSOURCED overseas. Ryan was dead on right. I'm quoting Obama directly here, not some far-left factchek funded by far-left think-tanks like the Annenburg Foundation. We're not that stupid. When are you guys going to understand that?

Let's ask the question then... did Obama "RETOOL" the Janesville plant as he PROMISED?

No one knows the answer to that painful question better than the residents of Janesville.

Yes, you are that stupid.
CEOs and BODs close plants and export jobs and you blame "lefties" for it, so then what percentage of those CEOs and BOD members are Democrats? 90%? 50%? Nope. As should be expected, surveys indicate that between 60 and 70% of executives are Republicans.

Keep drinking the Kool Aid... ignore the facts. Stupid is as stupid does.

How an American president can lie... repeatedly, consistently, to the American people, and STILL garner their respect is absolutely beyond comprehension:

I know you like things simple.
Ignore the fact that GM closed the plant, not Washington. Ignore the fact that GM didn't reopen the plant after getting billions from Washington.

In Feb. 2009 when Obama appointed Steve Rattner as his ' Auto Czar' reporting directly to the WH. Rattner kept that job for about 7 months.

How did I ignore that? POINT IS, OBAMA TOOK A 40% government interest in GM to simply rob the shareholders and give it to the UAW for their exhorbitant pension plans to be sustained, and then took nearly 60 billion of the taxpayer's money to fork over to GM, who THEN SENT THE DAMN JOBS OVERSEAS TO CHINA, FRANCE, AND ELSEWHERE.

Wake up America... this is the TRUTH.
