Opinion: Auto Manufacturing Is Back In America. Obama Was Right, Romney Was Wrong.

Auto manufacturing is back in America – especially in Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania because President Obama made the politically risky decision to bailout the auto industry after bailing out the banks. It was a decision that worked. Obama was right, Romney was wrong. So Romney is now in full lying mode. He is trying to retroactively re-write the wrongs in his writings.

Opinion: Romney’s Lack Of Candor On Bain Timeline Raises More Questions

W. Mitt Romney’s campaign is struggling to get some simple facts straight. When did he leave Bain? Why is his signature on new business documents in 2002 if he “retroactively retired” in 1999? Why is the sworn testimony he provided at his 2002 ballot access hearing in Massachusetts in conflict with his financial disclosure documents?

Opinion: Romney Should Not Be The Candidate On The Defense
