Paul Ryan Slams Obama For Not Saving Auto Plant That Closed Under Bush

Paul Ryan slammed President Obama on Thursday for failing to rescue an auto factory in his Wisconsin district — one that closed in 2008, under President George W. Bush.

The latest attack highlights the complicated politics of the auto rescue for Ryan, who was one of only a handful of Republicans to vote in favor of the 2008 bailout that President Bush signed as a stopgap measure to prevent the industry from going under.

“I remember President Obama visiting it when he was first running, saying he’ll keep that plant open,” Ryan said in Ohio Thursday, describing the shuttered GM factory in Janesville, Wis. “One more broken promise.”

Romney blamed rising gas prices under Obama for the closing. He echoed the complaint in an interview with a local ABC affiliate, suggesting it showed that Obama’s auto rescue was a sham.

1. Ryan is a dunce.

The more he talks, the sillier he looks.

3. ROFLMAO!

I heard of this last night.

Here's hoping ALL the MSNBC shows will broadcast this.

And the Obama Campaign should make an ad out of it.

9. An ad would speak to all the other things he's being blamed for, all the way back to Clinton.

 

A lot of Republicans seem to have completely forgotten that W* (Cheney?) was pResident for eight years and got us into this mess.

14. Although I am convinced they will pretty much do one similar...

I would suggest that you take the initiative to send this great advice to the campaign, at:

http://barackobama.force.com/questions

(Check the 'Would you like to be contacted with a response?' box, along with a commitment to donate when they'll do, if you can afford a donation.)

I know I do this all the time, because I think it's a team work, but if you already did this, ignore my reply, and thank you!

12. Meh. They're blaming him for the economic disaster Bush left behind, too.

I guess Ryan figured if no one was calling them on that, he was safe tossing in an auto factory closure here or there.

However, since this is his district, and considering he is up for reelection, I kind of think it might behoove him not to remind people it closed under his own watch.

17. Oh, and they tried to block him every single time he proposed a solution...

and succeeded to block his proposals almost 100% of the time since Jan. 2011.

Don't ask the M$M 'journalists' to do their jobs though. It's too exhausting.
