Mitt on the Auto Bailout

My first reaction to this article was to think that Mitt Romney sounds more like a Republican than Bush at this point.  Of course, I seem to recall in the primary he wasn’t exactly practicing this kind of tough love with Detroit.

    BEG 3 had their chance to compete and failed miserably. I dont see any of the foireign auto makers in trouble. Also, what really ticks me is that BEG 3 provides a much much better auto to the overseas markets. They are the same cost, but have much higher (almost 2x) MPG and much lower (almost 1/2) CO2 emissions. The real pi$$er is that GM spends millions lobbying against better standards for fuel economy and emissions. LET THEM FALL BIG TIME…degenerates.

    If there is a Republican equivalent to Obama; it is Mitt Romney. The guy has talked out of both sides of his mouth more so than Barry himself (well almost…). His recommendation for the auto industry is sound, but I find the man himself just uncredible. Every time he speaks he sounds like someone who is running for office. You can’t trust someone like that; you can’t trust someone who is willing to tell you what you want to hear.

    How odd that the best result for the Big 3 is for them to go out of business. I think it’s been a long time coming and we should let them go under. It will suck in the short run, but in the long run we will be much better off for it not having the government flushing money down the Union toilet.

    And that’s why he’s known amongst Mass-holes as “Mitt the Shit”.

    I agree with you about Mitt. I favored McCain in the primary over Mitt. In fact, I think I’d have a tough time deciding between Romney and Giuliani. I’d probably have to rank Mitt higher, but the fact that it’s hard suggests how I feel about him.
