Video at The Hill:
Romney’s critics have accused him of destroying jobs in order to increase profits for his investment firm, Bain Capital, but speaking Wednesday on CBS, Romney said that what he did was no different from the Obama administration’s auto industry bailouts.All I can say is WOW! Romney is admitting that at Bain Capital he put thousands of workers out of work and claims in his defense that Obama did the same thing. Is that what we want in a nominee?
“In the general election I’ll be pointing out that the president took the reins at General Motors and Chrysler – closed factories, closed dealerships laid off thousands and thousands of workers – he did it to try to save the business,” Romney said Wednesday on CBS.
And what does this say about Romney as a potential president? Would he just go ahead with Obama style bailouts and health care and claim it's ok because Obama did it too?
