You know, I'm just coming to loathe Willard and his lies. This one is particularly brazen:
On the president’s watch, about 100,000 jobs were lost in the auto industry and auto dealers and auto manufacturers, so he’s hardly one to point a finger.
A pathetic, typical damned Romney BS lie. Here is the truth of the matter, from the Bureau of Labor Statistics:
Auto industry employment:
January 2009: 690,700
June 2009 (the low point) 624,400
April 2012: 763,800
Uh, Willard? That's a gain of almost 140,000 jobs from the lowest point, when OBAMA'S rescue of the auto industry started to be felt. Even if one wishes to start at the very beginning of the Obama Administration, there is still a gain of over 73,000. The claim that 100,000 auto workers have lost their jobs is yet another way that Mitt Romney spits in people's faces by assuming they're too stupid or gullible to check up on him.
But I'm not.
