    While I was reading the news yesterday. I came across a Detroit paper talking about Romney lying to people in Defiance Ohio about Jeep (in Toledo) moving "all" production to China. Turns out that just the day before he made that claim Chrysler had announced that it was investing $500 million in the Toledo plant and is adding 1,100 new jobs in 2013. Also the Michigan plant will be adding 1,100 jobs in 2013. To build a new SUV that will take the place on the Liberty. They said they were considering opening a plant in China because they are becoming the largest new car market in the world. Chrysler is the only of the big 3 to not have a factory in China. Anyhow just as I put down my phone the new ad comes on tv about the jobs going to China. Although he did remove the "All" from the claim the video is very misleading.

    Thanks for confirming that at present they haven't. Undoubtedly under Romney they would, as he's friendly with companies that ship jobs overseas.

    They manufacture the 30000 plus Jeeps that have been shipped to China this year in Ohio Michigan and Indiana. If they manufacture those Jeeps in China they won't be manufactured here. Therefore, those jobs are shifted to China. It's called using your brain.

    Romney didn't make such a claim, and what he said exactly reflected what was stated in the Bloomberg article.


    What is it like, living the Liberal Lie?

    I mean, life is just a shit sandwich for you guys, and everyday is another big ol' bite.

    Don't you know by now that no one cares about lies anymore? They love to have their ears tickled.

    Yes "JEEP" "MAY" "RETURN" They were thinking about reopening the factory in China. Not "Moving all production" Never mind that. Are you saying that Romney is not misleading people at the very least with this add?

    No those jobs are NOT being shifted to China. That would mean that people here would be losing work but they are adding 2,200 jobs in 2013. They are going to build China's jeeps in China. Not only the company said it was considering the shift.

    You are wrong. The Bloomberg article says explicitly that the CEO made it clear that production was not going to be shifted to China.

    If you people possessed a) the ability to read, and b) a gram of integrity, you'd know that,

    and shut up.
