The same Mitt Romney who opposed the auto bailouts and said they should be
allowed to go out of business. Whoops. Bush and Obama showed leadership on
this issue, Romney did not.
It's quite hypocritical when those who slam Romney's statement of allowing them
to go bankrupt also slam those who bailed out the autocompanies.Not
very brilliant of these people.
If that was true, he wouldn't have wanted to allow the auto manufacturers to
Re: EsquireRomney did not say they should've gone out of business,
he said they should've gone through bankruptcy without the help of the
government. There's a big difference there.
Is this the same Romney who wanted to let the Amercan auto industry fail and by
doing so let Japan take over the auto market. How many Romneys are there running
Partisans bickering will continue until 'the people' realize that government
exists only for one reason, to protect me in my unalienable rights. Those
'rights' were specifically stated in the Constitution, something that very few
read and understand, as is exemplified by those in these columns who bicker back
and forth about things that were settled two hundred years ago. Liberty and
freedom can't co-exist with socialism. It's a mystery to me how many people
don't understand this!
Sergio there is "1" and this is his 2nd run at the office. Hopefully
it will be his last. He said he "saved" Utah's olympics, but didn't
have the integrity to say who really saved them. It was the staff left after the
crooks who bid and were running them were run out of town along with many great
volunteers who saved the olympics not Mitt. He was merely an administrative
replacement of greedy cronies like what we have in todays financial markets and
other "big" businesses. To take credit and pat himself on the back as
a savior is ridiculous.
@ Sergio "Is this the same Romney who wanted to let the Amercan auto
industry fail and by doing so let Japan take over the auto market. How many
Romneys are there running for president.?Romney did not want the
auto industry to fail and let Japan take over. He wanted the companies to go
through bankruptcy proceedings that would allow them to reorganize and emerge
stronger than before. There are many kinds of bankruptcy categories which would
have been economically smarter than government bailout, and would have required
more accountability. To my knowledge, Ford did not take bailout money, and they
have survived. I have not studied it enough to know what they did to keep things
going, but they did.Romney is the best candidate among a very
qualified group of GOP candidates. He has the experience and knowledge of the
complicated processes involved in solving economic problems. Given the brief
time allowed at the debates to explain individual ideas and points of view, it
is hard to get a true picture of the depth of knowledge Romney has. I for one
would like to give him a chance. It's going to be a tough job!
When Obama bailed out GM, the first thing he did was build a new GM plant in
Monterrey Mexico. He's also provided over five hundred million dollars for an
automobile factory in Finland. This was done with our money. Yep! Our
money.How about the tens of billions to Brazil for oil drilling.
Yes, BO can help create jobs with our money. I just wish it was here.We're betrayed folks.
