    Mitt Romney: 'I'll Take A Lot Of Credit' For Auto Industry Recovery

    Despite his 2008 call to "let Detroit go bankrupt," presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney said Monday that he would "take a lot of credit" for his impact on the U.S. automobile industry's comeback.

    During an interview with WEWS-TV in Cleveland following a campaign stop, Romney said his views helped save the industry.

    "I pushed the idea of a managed bankruptcy," Romney said. "And finally, when that was done, and help was given, the companies got back on their feet. So I'll take a lot of credit for the fact that this industry's come back."

    Romney's stance on the bailouts and his infamous 2008 New York Times op-ed "Let Detroit Go Bankrupt," have come up throughout the campaign, especially ahead of February's primary in Michigan. In that editorial, Romney argued that a government bailout for ailing auto giants Chrysler and General Motors would do more harm than good.

    Its a good thing we nationalized a few automotive companies after their incompetence nearly ruined themselves......................

    They need to know that US taxpayers will be there to reward them in the future for failure

    To avoid another "great depression" and all

    It's a funny thing how so many still think we should have let Chrysler and GM go belly up. Of course, Romney is smarter than that. He's going to change his story again so that he is on the right side. Of course, for Romney, being on the right side of any issue means changing his view on each and every issue about once every few months.
