The impatient discussion about when America can “re-open” for business has not only often proceeded, on the Republican side, with willful ignorance of informed medical perspectives, but it has also tended to pose a dangerously ignorant and unimaginative false choice to Americans: either save lives or save our economy and way of life.
President Obama used his weekly address to highlight how Republicans were wrong about the auto bailout and show the American people how much progress that the country has made over the last seven years.
Were you to slam your head into a dead tree trunk for hours on end, that trunk would have a more dramatic reaction to your suffering than corporate prince and presidential nominee Mitt Romney.
Mitt Romney took credit again for the auto bailout today while campaigning in Michigan, so the Obama campaign has had to release yet another dose of reality for the Republican nominee.
On his Fox News program, Bill O'Reilly claimed that President Obama had nothing to do with saving the auto industry and he needs to be much more humble about success.
Mitt Romney may have only created 10,000 jobs while at Bain, but the Obama auto industry bailout that Romney opposed has created 170,000 jobs since 2009.
President Obama spoke at Gellberg Signs today in Washington, D.C. where he not only kept pushing forward his jobs creation agenda, but he also made sure that everyone, including the Right, knew that the Big Three automakers are profitable, alive and well, "All three U.S. automakers are now posting a profit for the first time since 2004."
