    way to stick to the Romney spin….. Except there were no private funds available to bail out the auto industry. SO Mitt would ahve watched millions of Americans unemployed, American aut industry collapse and foreign market share increase. That’s not a future for America that would serve any of us.

    Oh, come on Steve, I thought you were going to dress up like a normal person for Halloween. Instead you chose to be yourself again, just another ObamaZombie.

    Actually read his article master, Romney said the US should guarantee the loans AFTER the US bankruptcy laws were followed. Try educating yourself on the actual facts before spouting off

    Look up the vidoes and congressional trancripts of the hearings into Fannie and Freddie, in which Barney Frank repeatedly came to their defense while republican congressmen and women warned of the upcoming danger.

    From fact check.org
    It’s true that key Democrats opposed the Federal Housing Enterprise Regulatory Reform Act of 2005, which would have established a single, independent regulatory body with jurisdiction over Fannie and Freddie – a move that the Government Accountability Office had recommended in a 2004 report. Current House Banking Committee chairman Rep. Barney Frank of Massachusetts opposed legislation to reorganize oversight in 2000 (when Clinton was still president), 2003 and 2004, saying of the 2000 legislation that concern about Fannie and Freddie was “overblown.” Just last summer, Senate Banking Committee chairman Chris Dodd called a Bush proposal for an independent agency to regulate the two entities “ill-advised.”

    Thank you

    denis: PHIL GRAMM WROTE THAT “law” AND INSERTED IT IN A “MUST PASSBILL! Yes, Clinton signed the total package, because he didn’t have the option to just veto Gramm’s rider. Granted ol’ “lefty” Bill wasn’t totally averse to helping “business interests” either, but it was GRAMM, not Clinton, that did the real damage.

    Yes, Mitt would be the worst, ever, even topping the incompetence of “W”, and THAT is scary indeed, too much even for Halloween.

    @Archimedes

    Show us the private investor to do what Romney proposed.
    Then rejoice that Obama did what had to be done to stave off collapse.

    @Scottie: Yes! Let the automakers go bankrupt. Then, when they emerge, the workers lose thier union rights and their pensions. And they will be lucky if they can get their jobs back, even at greatly reduced rates, assuming the jobs do not get sent overseas. This is the way Romney made his fortune at Bain, screwing American workers. Think about who the process serves; The 47%? The 99%? The 1%? The 0.01%?

    @charliekane

    Any bank would make the loan if the US government guaranteed it, that is exactly what happened with home loans to all of our detriment. What Romney was saying is that the car companies needed to go through bankruptcy to allow them to change their debt structure, and change their relationship with the unions and then have the government help them. By putting the government help ahead of the restructuring the result is what you have now. The car companies still in trouble, the US taxpayer out billions on stocks that the US bought and will never recover on, and the government meddling more than ever in the running of the car company.
