    PolitiFact has selected Romney's claim that Barack Obama "sold Chrysler to Italians who are going to build Jeeps in China" at the cost of American jobs as the 2012 Lie of the Year.

    Fiat, Chrysler to produce Jeep in China: paper
    MILAN | Sun Jan 13, 2013 3:31pm EST

    (Reuters) - Italian carmaker Fiat and its U.S. unit Chrysler are set to sign a new agreement with Guangzhou Automobile Group Co to produce the Jeep vehicle for the Chinese market, Il Corriere della Sera said on Sunday.

    In an unsourced article, the Corriere said the head of Fiat and Chrysler Sergio Marchionne could announce the agreement at the Detroit auto show, which kicks off on Monday.

    Under the agreement, off-road vehicles under the Jeep brand will be produced at GAC's Canton factory, the paper said.

    Fiat, which declined to comment the report, already has a joint venture with GAC.

    I bet you believe in the middle class tax cut also.

    Romneys claim would certainly be characterized as lie of the year either

    No you didn't. This is the fourth or fifth spouting the same debunked bullshit.

    Yes, it is true you lied about Romney.

    Looks like you and I have equal substance without 3rd party validation.

    Those were Mittens' exact words, that the president "sold Chrysler to Italy".

    I have yet to read any evidence that its true.

    Obama DID NOT sell Chrysler to Italy. Period.

    Mittens LIED.

    But even if he didn't lie about this, good gawd, he (and Lyin Ryan) lied very time they opened their mouths. Ryan even lied about his running time in a marathon. How stupid is that?

    And yet, this past week at the vacation we taxpayers paid for, he's been teaching the other dinosaurs of the GObP "how to win". And, that's while three old white dudes teach them how to talk to women and them colored folx.

    Assholes.

    It was a lie.

    Romney thought that GM was following Bain Capital's business model of moving American jobs abroad.

    And that wasn't the case.
