To be fair, the first thing Romney did when he got control of a company was to make it take out a massive loan. But the difference is that while Obama plowed the money back into GM, Romney put the money in his pocket.

Therein lies the difference.

"The only economic success that President Obama has had is because he followed Mitt Romney's advice."



look, i'm sure that Orwellian historical rewrite shiat works just fine in the GOP echo chamber but out here in the real world we tend to ignore doublethink and call you out on blatant bullshiat.

dear f*cking god...is THIS what Romney plans on hitting Obama with come election time!? this is his 'A' game!? dude is beyond f*cked if the best he can come up with is some lame ass hand waveium jedi mind trick.

"[Romney's] position on the bailout was exactly what President Obama followed. I know it infuriates them to hear that," Eric Fehrnstrom, senior adviser to the Romney campaign, said.

It's infuriating because the votes of people that buy this shiat carry the same weight as mine. Never underestimate the power of the poultry-buggery-voyeur bloc.

MIght as well. I imagine by tomorrow the GOP will say the remarks were "out of context" and remind us that Obama ate dog when he was 6.

It's sad when a flip flopper loses his balance. Romney's flopped when he should have flipped.

GOPers have been loudly denouncing the auto bailout for years. Now they're ok with it? Heads are going to explode.

isn't half of infinity still infinity? or is that dividing by zero?

After this election cycle, their jokes seem less funny because they seem more real.

New talking point, guys! No more "Not Buying from Government Motors" jokes, Romney's now claiming credit for the success of the bailout. Please adjust your AM radio call-ins, peeps.

I have a theory that the people running the GOP haven't yet realized that the Internet never forgets. This kind of BS worked fine when lies couldn't be easily debunked and the debunking instantly widely circulated so that the debunking becomes a bigger story than the lie (remember the infamous Rick Perry video?). It's no coincidence, IMO, that the core constituency of the GOP increasingly overlaps with "people who didn't grow up with the Internet". It's also no coincidence that Karl Rove got out when he did: as despicable a human being as he is, he was also smart enough to recognize that his strategy of "lie until your teeth hurt" was becoming decreasingly effective.

There used to be a saying, "a lie can go around the world before the truth has tied its laces". These days, a lie can get a good head start but the truth quickly catches it up, gives it a good kicking, and posts the video on YouTube for everybody to watch.

/Kids, ask your grandparents what the phrase "tied its laces" means

This is all part of a larger strategy - spin Ronney's positions until the public and the Obama campaign get dizzy following them, then lead the ignorant directly to the polls while everyone else stumbles around.

but GOP attacking US car companies while giving government aid and funds to German and Japanese companies in the South a okay? The GOP are a bunch of scabs on the back of UAW workers. If the UAW was gone do you think Honda, BMW, and VW would pay the workers in the right to work plants similar wages to union shops?

It was not the unions, it was bad leadership up top and unfair advantages given by GOP politicans to their rivals. Pro-American and pro-free market my arse
