Well if anyone would no a lie, or how to lie, that would be Jivin' Joe Biden. Romney should ask Joe about plagiarizing his way through law school.
Please Joe, explain to the taxpayer how the bailout gave the unions $26.5 billion more to the UAW than it would have received had it been treated as a normal bankruptcy. Call it what it really was, a union bailout with the taxpayer hosed!
Or, you could call it 'usual and customary' Romney campaign statements. One and the same.
All of the political fact checking sites call Romney's claim and out right bald faced lie. PoliticoFact Ohio give this their lowest rating, "Pants on Fire" ......enough said.
How can they tout the bankruptcy of the auto dealers?? The tax payers lost big time. The secured creditors lost big time. A foreign company and the unions were the only winners. This was a complete flop.
You'd think that after Candy Crowley totally faced Mittens in the second debate that he would have learned his lesson. Nope, still telling whoppers.
Of course it's an outrageous lie. Just like the one about cutting welfare work requirements that he's bringing back. Romney's campaign said they wouldn't let fact checks interfere with his campaign.
The end justifies the means only if you have no morals. This is a shameless attempt to steal votes with misinformation. Candidates and PACs should be forced to submit videotaped retractions of false statements, airing them at their expense. Bring honest discussion to the people.
I can't believe the administration keeps bringing the bailout as a success. With one stroke of a pen Obama wiped out $37 billion in share and bond holders. He then turned around and gave 17.5% of the new GM stock to the UAW pension fund. This should go down as the biggest heist in American history but crickets from the media of course. Not to mention he Obama wiped out 20,000 Delphi retirees who were none union but continued to fund the pension of Delphi UAW retirees.
The Catcher's Mitt will say anything to get a vote.
