During an interview yesterday with WEWS-TV in Cleveland, Mitt Romney continued his contortionist’s act regarding the Obama administration’s rescue of the auto industry, saying that he deserves a lot of credit for the industry’s turnaround. “I’ll take a lot of credit for the fact that this industry’s come back,” he said:
My own view, by the way, was that the auto companies needed to go through bankruptcy before government help. And frankly, that’s finally what the president did. He finally took them through bankruptcy. That was the right course I argued for from the very beginning. It was the UAW and the president that delayed the idea of bankruptcy. 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 guy who wrote "Let Detroit Go Bankrupt" is now taking credit for the auto industry's return and in fact is blaming the UAW and President Obama saying they stalled what would have been an even bigger comeback.
Glenn Kessler will of course award no Pinocchios because Romney is telling the 100% truth, right?
