Opinion: Auto Manufacturing Is Back In America. Obama Was Right, Romney Was Wrong.

Auto manufacturing is back in America – especially in Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania because President Obama made the politically risky decision to bailout the auto industry after bailing out the banks. It was a decision that worked. Obama was right, Romney was wrong. So Romney is now in full lying mode. He is trying to retroactively re-write the wrongs in his writings.

Opinion: Ryan VP Pick Changes Electoral Math
