The Overweening Gall of Mitt Romney
Remember when Mitt Romney wrote an op-ed piece for the New York Times, advocating for the government to let Detroit go bankrupt?
Well, now Romney actually wants a lot of the credit for the auto industry’s recovery.
Despite his 2008 call to “let Detroit go bankrupt,” presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney said Monday that he would “take a lot of credit” for his impact on the U.S. automobile industry’s comeback.
During an interview with WEWS-TV in Cleveland following a campaign stop, Romney said his views helped save the industry.
“I pushed the idea of a managed bankruptcy,” Romney said. “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.”
For Romney to make a claim like this is audacious, bold, and incredibly dishonest. Every day is Opposite Day in Republican lala land.
