All Your Good Ideas R Belong to Mitt
Remember the scandalous government bailout of the auto industry that saved General Motors from bankruptcy and liquidation, saw the storied carmaker restructured and restored to profitability, and saved well over a million U.S. jobs? The Right threw a shit fit, derided GM as “government motors” and Mitt Romney proclaimed it “crony capitalism on a grand scale.”
Well apparently the American people aren’t buying the Right’s critique of President Obama’s handling of the auto industry, and so now the Mitt Romney campaign has a new strategy for dealing with it. Said strategy can basically be summed up: “well duh, of course the auto bailout worked. It was Mitt Romney’s idea in the first place.“
One of Mitt Romney’s top advisers said Saturday that President Obama’s decision to bailout Chrysler and General Motors was actually Romney’s idea.
“[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.
“The only economic success that President Obama has had is because he followed Mitt Romney’s advice.”
By the way, guys. Did you know that when I play air guitar I’m waaay faster than Eddie Van Halen? Also, I’m pretty sure he stole my idea for the song “Eruption.” That’s really my song.
That’s typical execubot behavior where I’ve worked, but unlike in corprat world it doesn’t work in the real world where people somewhat care what “important” people say or do.
“Unfortunately” for Mittens people remember his smug arrogant op-ed telling GM and Chrysler workers to go fuck themselves.
It would be so much easier if he said he was wrong and apologizes.
Hey GOPers, you picked the wrong Mormon!
That makes as much sense as saying Newt invented the Chevy Volt in his basement.
We’re not sophisticated enough to appreciate the nuances of Mitt’s positions. Sure, he wrote that “Mitt to GM and Chrysler: Drop Dead” op-ed, but he also called for a managed bankruptcy. That way creditors and investors would have some protection. If they had to bite it like laid off auto workers, then they wouldn’t have the money to create trickle down minimum wage jobs for those ex-auto workers (who belonged to unions so they probably deserved whatever happened to them).
