The left-wing hacks at Politifact called it the "lie of the year," but now we see exactly who's full of bullshit. The incompetent empty suit Barack Hussein Obama leveraged his campaign around Mitt Romney's comments that Jeep production could move to China. Romney was attacked on every front, especially by the elite media. He was called a liar to no end, while Americans were expected to believe our pathological liar of a president. It turns out, Romney was right.
After Mitt Romney made his comments, Chrysler's CEO went out of his way to email employees and ensure them that Jeeps would still be produced in the U.S. As it turns out, Chrysler is moving some Jeep production to China to target that market. Based on the timing, there's no doubt that Chrysler has had this plan in the works and caved to threats from the Obama administration to keep the news under wraps.
Details about the cronyism at Chrysler and how they intentionally lied to hurt Romney:
Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne said the automaker plans to build some Jeeps in China for the local market — and later, in Russia.
"As part of our global expansion of the Jeep brand, there are some cars — that because of the price position in the market — can never be made in the U.S. and exported," Marchionne told reporters on the sidelines of the North American International Auto Show. "We're going to be announcing the first step in the globalization of Jeep (in China). There's another one that's going to come in Russia. These things are part of a natural process of expansion."
Marchionne said he will keep "the pillar cars of the Jeep (brand) in the United States. Wrangler is one. The Grand Cherokee is another. These are things that need to be protected because they represent the best and the essence of Jeep. If you tell me I cannot make a Patriot somewhere else, I might as well go out of the market."
Marchionne came under harsh criticism from Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who falsely suggested that Chrysler would shift production from Ohio to China of the Jeep brand. The Romney ad on the issue was branded the "lie of the year" by fact checker "Politifact."
Marchionne rejected Romney's assertion in a letter to employees last fall. "I set the record straight to our people," he said. "We live in a world where we tell each other the truth and I think the stuff that was coming out was improperly phrased — it certainly was not reflective of the position of Chrysler."
The bullshit and lies pushed by Obama and his ilk are truly sickening. These are pervereted degenerates that have no interests except controlling America through a dictatorial regime. Mitt Romney was right, but we already knew that.
