WOW. The new Romney ad that lies about Jeep and China is getting CREAMED by the press.

ESPECIALLY in car country. Just a sample.

Detroit Free Press: “Not only was the story wrong, Romney took criticism for not knowing better and repeating it without questioning it.”

Toledo Blade: “‘The latest Romney ad, I will grant you, is a clever play on words to avoid saying things that are utterly false,’ Mr. Rattner said, referring to a new Romney ad out today. But he said the implication of the ad is ‘just not true. Chrysler is adding people. It's made major investments in the Toledo Wrangler plant.’”

Huffington Post: “Where the ad goes from misleading to something more nefarious is in the text it shows. At one point, it displays a line from a Bloomberg story stating that Chrysler "plans to return Jeep output to China," the implication being that the company is moving operations there as opposed to expanding operations that are already there.”

Wall Street Journal: “So far, the Romney campaign hasn’t issued a public statement on the flap.”

Sam Stein ‏@samsteinhp i asked this morning and am still waiting this evening: anyone have a sound defense of this Romney Jeep ad?

Ron Fournier ‏@ron_fournier Nope "@samsteinhp: i asked this morning and am still waiting this evening: anyone have a sound defense of this Romney Jeep ad?"

Ben White ‏@morningmoneyben Wait, not only did Romney camp not back off the erroneous Jeep to China canard, they made an ad out of it? My god

Ben White ‏@morningmoneyben @davidshepardson it's astonishingly misleading

Joe Vardon ‏@joevardon Wait, Jeep isn't considering moving manufacturing to China? But Romney said in Ohio ... http://bit.ly/ScsbsY

McKay Coppins ‏@mckaycoppins There's really no good explanation or excuse for it. Mitt Romney's Jeep ad is misleading. Full stop.

Tim Dickinson ‏@7im"Jeep has no intention of shifting production of its Jeep models out of North America to China" http://on.freep.com/VRbWVD

Michael Cohen ‏@speechboy71 The mendaciousness of Romney's new auto ad is breathtaking even for him: http://www.detroitnews.com/article/20121028/POLITICS01/210280314

Travis Waldron ‏@Travis_Waldron Mitt can't tell the truth about GM/Chrysler, because the truth is simple: At every turn, he was wrong.

Sam Stein ‏@samsteinhp The Romney campaign did defend the Jeep ad to me, by citing the Bloomberg piece that has been called wrong by Jeep http://huff.to/PAZCWY

Blake Hounshell ‏@blakehounshell OK, @CitizenCohn has persuaded me: this is pretty despicable http://www.tnr.com/blog/plank/109256/romney-ohio-chrysler-jeep-china-toledo-obama-gm-rescue#

Andrew Kaczynski ‏@BuzzFeedAndrew Interestingly, this Romney ad cites the Detroit News, which also debunked the Jeep production moving to China claim.

Josh Greenman ‏@joshgreenman Who's acting desperate now? http://www.tnr.com/blog/plank/109256/romney-ohio-chrysler-jeep-china-toledo-obama-gm-rescue

Kurt Eichenwald ‏@kurteichenwald Do GOPers believe Romney when he repeatedly says Chrysler' moving jeep job to china, when company says it's a lie? He'll say anything to win

A sampling of headlines the ad has received:

Detroit Free Press: Romney's latest ad claims he will do more for the auto industry than Obama

Detroit News: UAW denounces Romney comments on Jeep production

This is right up there with Johnny Carson's exposure of Uri Geller as a fraud years ago on the Tonight Show. You can see the moment when Trump realizes where Letterman is going and clearly starts to squirm. Seconds later Dave plunges in the knife. The look on Trump's face is priceless. I've watched it over and over.

because Jeep wants to make cars in China...wait for it, with stimulus money.

They also say the lies Rmoney are spewing about Chrysler are true because "they ARE going to build cars in China, right?"

Willard's still playing the 50.1 game...find just enough white people to get to the polls while trying to suppress the blacks and other minorities. No better way to get your people "energized" than a good does of fear and poutrage. The great unhinged are at five-alarm shitstorm over anything and everything they can conjur up. Every problem in the world is President Obama's fault and if that means to lie...so be it. This is bloodsport and the Bishop needs to play whatever card he can in his vain attempt to bullshit his way to power.

50. Who the Hell is "undecided" ?????

I keep hearing/reading the beltway press yapping about those "still undecided voters", and I wonder just what those fringe dwellers need to know that they've not gotten already ? Lemme see ... which candidate likes my favorite jello flavor ?

My notion of the undecided voter is someone who hasn't tuned in very often, someone with very little knowledge of the candidates positions on important issues, they're records, etc., I think of undecided voters as people most sensitive to sound-bites and what they over hear around the workplace water cooler. Hey, Mitt Romney was a businessman, he knows how to create jobs, Obama hasn't done enough, blah, blah, blah ....

I don't buy the narrative of everything hendging on fringe dweller voters, and I'm not convinced there's a "horse race", close in some places yeah, but who is it that benefits most by selling a political horse race? TV stations selling ads to pay their bills, that's who.

Don't get me wrong, I do think the electorate can be fickle and there will be those who once they get to that voting booth will have certain urges overtake their reasoning ( race ? ) .... but I think for the most part the dye is cast.

If you ALWAYS vote republican no matter what, and ... I'll say that same thing for anyone who votes blindly, you're someone willing to bite the hand that feeds you. OR ... your vote isn't for Romney as much as it's not a vote for president Obama, same thing.

61. Is Detroit News going to rescind their endorsement?

It was vulgar of them to endorse him in the first place. Now it should be obvious to everyone that he's not fit to lead this country.

65. Wouldn't that be awesome?

I don't think that I have ever heard of a paper rescinding an endorsement, but it could happen.

63. Detroit Free Press: Romney camp silent on his Jeep-to-China gaffe

"Gaffe," my ass. That sleazeball knew EXACTLY what he was saying. And his sleazeball campaign staff knew EXACTLY what they were doing when they made an ad of it.

67. In sports, it's "Go big or go home". In the GOP, it's "Lie big or lie down".

And these guys will not lie down.

73. That's the TRUTH..they know how propaganda works

Tell the big lie over and over and over.

MOST people never hear the retraction (if there is one), and by the time they have heard re-inforcing comments from media they "trust" and from their cohorts, they convince themselves that the lie is a fact..

republicans are BOLD and do not care about facts or nuance or any "gray area"..

It works for them often enough (see house of reps..and all the dem-turned-rep governorship), to keep doing it.

The prime example is the deification of Reagan (a mediocre president at best)

71. rmoney is out of control

he has no moral compass; his consistency with lying is beyond
any understanding ...he simply is mentally not okay..if his handler(s)
are suggesting this behavior and rhetoric it is one thing..but the idea that
he thinks it is okay is beyond comprehension...

We are in dangerous waters if our President does not win this election...

Thank you for posting these..this is what I have seen all day on my Twitter
account....hopefully this will sink him for good!

75. Still not nearly enough coverage about this atrocity.

It's a blatant lie. An absolute falsehood. A work of fiction pulled straight out of the Romney campaign's ass.

And when it's pointed out by the press I'm sure the next sentence is about how BOTH campaigns have degraded... etc. even though it's only one side making up this garbage.

An abomination against decency and humanity.

77. Seems Romney can't tell the simple Truth

 

Personally, I don't think he even knows what "truth" is!

There is true megalomaniac who wants to be the President no matter how he gets in placed in that position

80. It's amazing that he would bring the topic up, after all the jobs he exported to China...

 

Did he ever get around to paying taxes on all the money he made by investing heavily in companies involved in exporting U.S. jobs to Communist China?
