Mitt Romney Strangely Takes Credit For Auto Industry Success (VIDEO)
Matt | On 08, May 2012
Mitt Romney is the definition of a politician, but even this interview threw me for a loop.
Attending a campaign function outside of Cleveland on Monday, Romney sat down with the area’s ABC affiliate WEWS-TV for a quick interview. He discussed the importance of small businesses on the American economy.
When he got to the topic of the recent problems of the auto industry, that’s where the interview took an interesting turn. Romney actually took credit for the auto industry’s success because they are coming back from managed bankruptcy — a policy he says he agreed with.
That’s interesting because in 2008, Romney wrote an op-ed in The New York Times called “Let Detroit Go Bankrupt.”
Though the government did allow the industry to go the bankruptcy route, it was in an effort to save itself. Romney, on the other hand, wanted to practically abandon the industry so the government wouldn’t have to spend money.
It’s puzzling to me and many others how on Earth he can take credit for any success in Detroit behind his earlier statements. Stunning, I tell you!
