    Just days ahead of the election, Jeep announced that it is considering closing it's American plant entirely and moving to China.

    Obama to Leno: I struggle with math above the 7th grade level | WashingtonExaminer.com

    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.

    Thinking about something and doing it are two completely different things. Certainly, if Jeep sales are strong in China, it would make sense to produce them there for Chinese sales. However, to move all production to China would be suicide in the US market. the backlash could actually put an end to Chrysler in the US.

    Actually, I just heard on the local news that Jeep put out a statement that under no circumstances are they considering closing US plants.

    Even if it was true, why would anyone think it helped "I ADORE SENDING YOUR JOBS TO CHINA!" Romney?

    Yes, so true, and in addition:

    OSHKOSH, Wis. - Bad news will greet Vice President Joe Biden when he arrives in Wisconsin Thursday night. Hours earlier, Oshkosh's largest employer announced that it will lay off 450 employees in January.

    Oshkosh Corp., a truck manufacturer with Pentagon contracts, blamed the "difficult decisions" on looming cuts to the nation's defense budget.
