Romney Falsely Claims Jeep Production Moving to China

In addition to being a BSer and someone who will say what he thinks he needs to say, this also lets us know that Mitt reads severe conservative news.
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney falsely claimed Thursday night that Chrysler Group may move all Jeep vehicle production to China, drawing criticism from the Obama campaign, which said the Michigan native had blatantly skewed a news wire story.

Romney’s comments came the same day that the Free Press reported that 1,100 new Chrysler workers will begin making the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango SUVs at a plant in Detroit next week.

“I saw a story today that one of the great manufacturers in this state, Jeep, now owned by the Italians, is thinking of moving all production to China,” Romney said during a rally in Defiance, Ohio, before 12,000 cheering supporters, according to several reports. “I will fight for every good job in America, I’m going to fight to make sure trade is fair, and if it’s fair, America will win.”

Romney apparently was referencing conservative bloggers who misinterpreted a Bloomberg story Read the rest at Detroit Free Press
Chrysler's response:
Let’s set the record straight: Jeep has no intention of shifting production of its Jeep models out of North America to China.
Electing Mitt is electing Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Donald Trump, the Koch brothers, Sean Hannity, Sheldon Adelson, the worst of the worst. Here's John Sununu, a Romney backer. At then end of the video, there is an explanation for why what he says is racist. There seem to be a lot of people who have trouble figuring that out. Can you imagine being Colin Powell, former Secretary of State, a retired general, an advocate for education, someone actually worthy of walking the planet, and having to hear people who are pitiful and clueless, such as Sununu, boil everything down to race?
