Mitt Romney’s campaign is running an attack ad accusing the Obama Administration and two auto manufacturers of shipping American jobs overseas, specifically to China.
One of the manufacturers, General Motors Corporation (GMC) has this to say:
“We’ve clearly entered some parallel universe during these last few days,” GM spokesman Greg Martin said. “No amount of campaign politics at its cynical worst will diminish our record of creating jobs in the U.S. and repatriating profits back to this country.”
Chrysler’s CEO Sergio Marchionne, in response to comments and an ad from Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, categorically said (in part):
“Chrysler Group’s production plans for the Jeep brand have become the focus of public debate.
I feel obliged to unambiguously restate our position: Jeep production will not be moved from the United States to China.”
How dare they correct Mitt, don’t they know that his father was head of American Motors Corporation?
VOTE ON NOVEMBER 6 AND LET MITT KNOW THAT HIS DISINGENUOUS AD ATTACKING PRESIDENT OBAMA AND THE TWO AUTOMOBILE MANUFACTURERS IS ABOUT AS GOOD AS AMERICAN MOTORS CORPORATION’S BET ON:

At least George Romney was honest about his background.
For an article on Mitt Romney’s family history go here and here.
There is nothing to be ashamed about being poor and destitute, especially when the world’s economy has collapse around you. You didn’t cause it, you worked hard and tried to plan for the future but the world failed to return the fruits of your hard labor. Practically every family in America has had to go through it at sometime in their history. This is, after all, the story of the American dream.
Even families that proudly boast of their ability to take care of themselves sometimes need a safety net. The following is one family’s story.
Mitt Romney is maddeningly against welfare. It is a well known fact that some people turn against their roots in striving to obtain a higher social status. As they climb the social ladder they seek to curry the favor of those they perceive to be better off than themselves. To effectively seem like one of the upper echelon that they are trying to emulate, they will often lash out against their own humble beginnings. Such people must be purer than Caesar’s wife in their disdain and hatred of those who were left behind. It is a classic, but sad, tale of some who had to struggle out of their humble beginnings.
We now know that Mitt Romney is merely one generation away from welfare himself. He comes from a family that through no fault of its own had to seek welfare to survive the cruel vagaries of political upheaval. You see, Mitt is not the most successful private equity/leveraged lease guy out there. His fortune actually pales in comparison to the titans of that industry. He most likely aspires to their lofty realm and he must hide his humble origins in that quest.
How do we know that the Romney family was once on welfare? Listen to his mom:
George Romney knew what it meant to climb out of his humble beginnings and according to his gracious and seemingly well-ground wife, Lenore, George Romney knew the hardships of being poor and out of luck. Apparently that basic grounding was wasted on the second generation. Self-loathing can be a very dangerous thing.
