    It's about Jeep moving it's jobs to China...not happening. In fact the U.S. Factory is adding an additional 1,200 jobs.

    And, even IF Jeep was moving jobs to China (which it is not), Mittens is the Out Sourcer In Chief.

    He keep lying and you people keep believing the the lies.

    It seems that Mittens RobMe can't stop lying to save his life. His latest ad accuses Obama of shipping Jeep jobs to China after selling them out to Italy.

    Unfortunately, nothing could be further from the truth. Even Jeep's CEO has come out and stated that they have no intentions of shipping American jobs to China. As a matter of fact, things are going so good, they're expanding.

    Me personally? I'd never trust someone as president who lies as much as RobMe.

    Romney and his campaign read the same rightwing propaganda that the rightwingers on this forum read;

    it shouldn't be any surprise that they would be constantly lying.

    Jeep, an Obama favorite, looks to shift production to China

    Jeep Wrangler behind the president as seen in his new second term agenda binder.
    In another potential blow for the president's Ohio reelection campaign, Jeep, the rugged brand President Obama once said symbolized American freedom, is considering giving up on the United States and shifting production to China.

    Such a move would crash the economy in towns like Toledo, Ohio, where Jeeps are made and supplied, and rob the community of the economic security they thought Obama's auto bailout assured them.

    Obama is such a fan of Jeep that he included a picture of himself speaking at the Toledo plant in his newly released second term agenda binder. In his address to the plant in 2011, Obama said, "I just took a short tour of the plant and watched some of you putting the finishing touches on the Wrangler. Now, as somebody reminded, I need to call it the 'iconic' Wrangler. And that's appropriate because when you think about what Wrangler has always symbolized. It symbolized freedom, adventure, hitting the open road, never looking back."

    Well it appears that the taxpayer bailed-out Chrysler is looking back and now considering cutting costs by shifting production of all Jeeps to China, which has a strong desire for Jeeps.

    In a Bloomberg interview, Jeep's president said the automaker plans to restore Jeep production in China, suspended in 2009, and is considering making all Jeeps in China. "Fiat SpA, majority owner of Chrysler Group LLC, plans to return Jeep output to China and may eventually make all of its models in that country, according to the head of both automakers' operations in the region," reported the business wire service.

    4 Pinocchios for Mitt Romney’s misleading ad on Chrysler and China - The Washington Post

    The Facts

    Here’s what Romney said last Thursday in Ohio: “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. I will fight for every good job in America, I’m going to fight to make sure trade is fair.”

    This was completely wrong. Bloomberg News had reported that Fiat, the majority owner of Chrysler, was planning to once again start building Jeeps in China, after production had been on hold since 2009.

    The article made clear that Chrysler was was “adding Jeep production sites rather than shifting output from North America to China,” but some blogs, such as the Washington Examiner’s Washington Secrets, misinterpreted the article and reported: “Jeep, the rugged brand President Obama once said symbolized American freedom, is considering giving up on the United States and shifting production to China.”

    After Romney made his comments, Chrysler issued a statement firmly denying that any North American production was being moved to China:

    Right now, all Jeeps are built in Ohio, Michigan and Illinois. The iconic Wrangler is made here in Toledo, and a brand new Jeep SUV is set to roll of the lines at the Toledo Assembly Complex next year.

    The spokesperson says any production that may happen in China will not affect production or the workforce here in Toledo.

    A Chrysler statement says, "Should we produce Jeep vehicles in China, those vehicles would be to meet local market demand in order to avoid high import duties and tariffs."

    Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne has said a number of times he is committed to the Toledo workforce and growing operations here.

    Chrysler sent a statement about the Bloomberg article saying, "Bloomberg recently produced a story that led some to incorrectly believe that all Jeep production could shift to China from North America. That is not true, and Bloomberg quickly amended its story to eliminate any potential inaccurate perception. To be clear, Jeep has no intention of shifting production of its Jeep models out of North America to China".

    Building Jeeps in China is nothing new. When Chrysler bought American Motors in 1987 it also took over control of Beijing Jeep. They stopped building Jeeps in China when Daimler sold Chrysler to Cerberus in 2007.

    You're an idiot. This has already been proven to be a lie. If you had bothered to read the source of the above story, which was linked in the story, you'd have seen this:

    Manley referred to adding Jeep production sites rather than shifting output from North America to China.

    Do you need that explained to you? Are you that stupid?
