The Obama campaign released this video, displaying Mitt Romney's attempt to rewrite history and claim credit for the auto bailout.
“I pushed the idea of a managed bankruptcy, and finally when that was done and help was given, the companies got back on their feet, so I’ll take a lot of credit for the fact that this industry’s come back,”The "help was given" was the Obama administration giving the automobile industry lots of loaned government money; something Romney had vociferously argued against. For Mitt Romney to sit, with a smile on his face, claiming credit for saving the auto industry more than anything else, made me feel that Mr. Romney is completely unfit to hold the office of President.
Jennifer Granholm was Governor of Michigan during the financial crisis. Her comments are particularly germane concerning Mitt Romney's claim that he helped save the auto industry.
