Despite Romney Claim, Chrysler Isn’t Moving Any Auto Production To China

Source: ThinkProgress

Mitt Romney, attempting to bolster his case to Ohio voters, misinterpreted a story and passed on an outright lie at a rally in the swing state yesterday. Reacting to a Bloomberg News story about auto manufacturer Chrysler’s plans to open a plant in China, Romney said at a rally in Defiance, Ohio that the company was “thinking of moving all production to China,” and that he would prevent such action by fighting for “every good job in America”:

“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 at a rally in Defiance, Ohio, home to a General Motors powertrain plant. “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.”


The Bloomberg News story, however, doesn’t say that Chrysler plans to move “all production to China.” Instead, it says that Fiat, which now owns Chrysler, is planning to open Chinese factories where it will make one of its most popular lines, Jeep, for Chinese consumers. Chrysler isn’t planning to shift production away from the United States. Instead, it will add factories in China to keep up with the nation’s growing demand for automobiles:

Romney has often struggled with facts about the auto industry. Though he now claims the auto bailout was his idea, his plan to let the private sector finance the bankruptcies of Chrysler and General Motors was “reckless” and “pure fantasy,” according to auto industry insiders. By some estimates, it could have cost more than 1 million American jobs.

Liar. Hypocrite. If he was really going to "fight for every good job in America" he could start with Sensata.

1. Mittens

 

is such a pathological liar. He has absolutely no shame. It's amazing he's gotten this far while revealing so little about his Dark Ages agenda:

2. Don't blame Romney. He has 'moving mouth syndrome'.

Which means he doesn't care for facts or verifications as long as words spill out of his mouth.

3. Just throw this LIE on the pile.

This bastard can not tell the truth! This is all an elaborate hoax to cover the theft of a government. Vote people! That's our only hope and they have been tampering there too.
