    not that you have not already been shown this to be the case

    as this is all BO seems to be running on (its the only thing close to a winner) Romney needs to make every single voter understand what really is going on.

    Just more corruption by this administration....it is overwhelming and the MSM ignores it...and where are the Rs on investigating all this corruption? If roles were reversed, the Ds would have multiple special prosecutors running...and the MSM would be cheering them on.

    If Romney runs a campaign like Little Johnny did and fails to point out all the many lies and frauds committed by BO & Friends, he deserves to lose.

    Feds Refuse to Sell Their Shares of GM

    General Motors Co. executives want the Treasury Department to sell its almost 27 percent stake in the company because, they say, the feds are hurting their image and government pay restrictions are chasing away top talent.
    But Treasury officials aren’t interested in selling because it would mean posting a multibillion dollar loss during an election year, the Wall Street Journal reports.

    Hurting their image?
    I have no intentions of ever buying a vehicle from government motors.

    Also, considering some of the proceeds from government motors goes to the DNC is plenty enough to be a deal killer for me. I have no intentions of supporting the socialist democrat party, not directly or indirectly!

    the administration cannot afford to so visibly expose the true costs of this union appeasing fiasco.

    they're having trouble enough with the meme of saving the companies and turning them into bonanzas without more attention to the losses associated to the massive premium they paid to get the unions their money (and it kills me that no one speaks of the 20k jobs outsourced as PART of the deal in order to get the union bosses their money and cover up the massive benefits hole the unions were responsible for and never made to explain where the money went).

    this scam hurt the middle class and I'm a little ticked its not being aired out. maybe GOP is saving it for the "debates".

    This is what Romney did at Bain. Went in to rescue businesses that were going bankrupt. He has the expertise, but I doubt he would even be asked these questions in a debate forum. And if he's giving speeches on it, there is no way the media will get it out there to the public. Look what they are trying to do to him just pointing out the dependency problem.

    No that's not what I was talking about. Romney went in to save businesses for the stock holders, not to hurt them. I was thinking more in terms of how Obama uses "saving the auto industry" as one of his accomplishments. This is Romney territory and it would be great if he could debate it with Obama. But I believe there are only going to be liberal sponsored debates, so there probably wouldn't be any opportunity for him to bring up Obama's disaster with the auto company.
