Romney Tortures Facts in Jeep Ad, Gets Slammed by the Big Dog [Video]

“Biggest load of bull in the world…” – President Bill Clinton

How desperate is Mitt Romney to win Ohio? Before you answer, pay attention to what he and his campaign have been saying about the auto industry in the last few days. … – Jonathan Cohn

YOU WOULD expect Mitt Romney to attempt to recast his “Let Detroit Go Bankrupt” op-ed, which just may cost him Ohio and the presidency.

However, the way to do it isn’t to scare voters about the auto industry, while revving up the GOP fearmonger machine. But it seems that’s where Republicans always go when they’re up against it.

A more charitable view of Romney’s ad from First Read:

The original Bloomberg report became fodder for conservatives, including Romney, who said last week in Ohio that Jeep “is thinking of moving all production to China.” But Jeep’s ownership has said it isn’t planning to move any U.S. production to China; rather, the automaker is establishing new capacity in China to build vehicles that will be sold in China.

But the ad plays to those ill-founded fears. A fair viewing of the ad might leave that impression with a voter, though the language in the ad is so narrowly tailored that it can’t be directly disputed.

Former President Bill Clinton isn’t having any trouble directly disputing Romney’s Jeep claims.

“Now it turns out that Jeep is reopening in China because they made so much money here they can afford to do it and they are going on with their plans here. They put out a statement today saying that it was the biggest load of bull in the world that they would consider shutting down their American operation. They are roaring in America thanks to people like the people of Ohio. So in keeping with that, here is what I want to say I think this election is about. I support Barack Obama because I think he has got a better jobs plan, and a better jobs record, a better budget plan, a better education plan, a better health care plan than his opponent Governor Romney.” – President Bill Clinton

    Now that statement is the biggest load of bull in the world.

      So come on tell us what is Romney’s job plan? Whats his budget plan? Whats his better health care plan? I’ve watched all three debates, I saw most of the republican debates and I still don;t have a clue what any of Romney’s plans are.

    Well, we don’t know Romney’s jobs plan. We’ve seen the lengths Obama will go to save jobs, if you want to look at the auto bailout, which Romney opposed. That’s the biggest example pitting the two against each other.

    On education, I bet they’re policies aren’t much different.

    On health care, as Obama said on “Morning Joe,” he stole many of Romney’s ideas he used in Massachusetts. If Mitt had stood by that plan he wouldn’t be the nominee.

    One entitlements, Obama and Romney are for austerity, but Romney would voucherize Medicare, so they’re both awful.

    On foreign policy, Romney wedded himself to Obama, because he can’t beat the sitting commander in chief, so they’re fairly close on many things, except Romney actually believes the Pentagon needs MORE BLOAT! That’s remarkable and very bad policy, including economically.

    Chrysler is adding capacity and jobs at its Jefferson Ave plant to build a Maserati SUV based on the Grand Cherokee. The Grand Cherokee is also built at Jefferson Ave. They completely refurbished the Belvedere plant to build the Dodge Dart and added a thousand jobs. They recently reached an agreement with the UAW to add jobs at Toledo to build a new Fiat based replacement for the Liberty. Fiat/Chrysler is committed to making cars in this country; in fact, on a percentage basis, they are doing better than Ford and GM.

    Is Clinton getting senile in his old age? or is it just “What’s in it for him?”

      No, probably has more to do with the way sound is distorted by having your head shoved up your own rectum.
