    A Chrysler statement says, “Should we produce Jeep vehicles in China, those vehicles would be to meet local market demand in order to avoid high import duties and tariffs.”

    That means that “local” production will not be made in the USA.

    It was reported that “They (Chrysler) stopped building Jeeps in China when Daimler sold Chrysler to Cerberus in 2007.”

    So who was making these " asian local" Jeeps since 2007 and who will be making them in the future? Production orders are being planned to be moved to China…

    I’d like to tell a little story about a company named Audi. They are pretty big here in Germany and around the world. They are VERY big in China, because they offer luxury and performance and style and brand recognition.

    -

    Audi had to open a factory in China to meet demand (that’s quite different from “moving jobs”). The Chinese Audi’s are a bit different from the ones here in Germany because they are considered the new “Benz”. They had to stretch them a bit, because bigger is better in China.

    -

    They sell them as fast as they can build them, all with German technology, engineering and quality control. There are even fake Audi’s on the road, they look JUST like the original. Audi doesn’t even bother to sue the makers of these. Because everybody that buys a fake will know that it’s a fake and sooner or later buy the real deal.

    -

    We here in Germany are getting MILLIONS and BILLIONS of Euros back from these factories in China. So, what’s wrong with serving the Chinese market? You in the U.S. are supposed the big builders and sellers, why not jump on that bandwagon and reduce you trade-deficit at the same time?

    You’re right and someone with a sixth grade education should know this (except maybe Ima). The “issue” is not a real issue. It’s an ill-conceived and completely dishonest and debunked idea that came up as part of an advertising campaign for one of the worst presidential candidates of all time. It’s not grounded in reality.
    .
    The effect of the ad campaign was to cause Romney to LOSE votes in Ohio and to highlight what Obama and the American auto industry really had accomplished.
    .
    These knuckleheads can’t even campaign effectively on a lie.

    Do you have any evidence to indicate Ima has a 6th grade education? It’s possible it’s not even human.

    The Jeep story has been disproved by the manufacturers themselves. We are now at that point where the sentences used in the ad need to be diagrammed in order for the republicans to prove they are not lying. If you read the words precisely, they are not lying. They are also not telling the truth.
    An old proverb says, “Half a truth is a whole lie.” This apparently doesn’t apply to political advertising.
    Here is a story causing me some angst.

    ^
    As the title says, a Superpac in Ohio is telling black Americans to vote Republican because it was the republicans that freed the slaves.
    It’s not enough to survive, you should also be worthy of survival. Both parties lie, cheat, deceive, and divide the nation.
    We deserve better.

    BMW, Honda, Hundai, Toyota, MADE IN USA! Should we send those jobs back overseas? The simple fact is that Mitt picked up on a blog, misinterpreted it, then proceeded to outright lie when he was caught in an error. Sorry, but we’re electing a President, and this makes me think “WMDs”, and dead people in our future if we make another error on Tuesday.

    @Ms. Ima

    You may be unwilling to buy a Volt from Obama, but that’s not the point of the cartoon. See: Romney’s long nose, and the disproven lie (by Chrysler execs no less) that Mitt told about moving production to China? Just one more blatant lie in a series of lies from this pathological liar.
    .
    Of course you have nothing to say about that and instead try to distract by kicking up some dust about Obama, by merely spouting your own personal preference, which isn’t even worth reading about. FWIW, I personally would love to own a Volt.

    @Tigger

    Yes I do. I don’t want jobs sent to China, not from the U.S. and not from Europe. But as long as they produce OUR products for THEIR market and we get some of the cash I don’t see a big problem with it. Yes, we COULD try to build the stuff here, but that would be too expansive for them to buy, create logistical nightmares and might even overload us. They are 1.2 billion people over there, not even “Volkswagen” is that “Volk”…
