Mitt Romney

“My own view, by the way, was that the auto companies needed to go through bankruptcy before government help. And frankly, that’s finally what the president did. He finally took them through bankruptcy. That was the right course I argued for from the very beginning. It was the UAW [United Auto Workers] and the president that delayed the idea of bankruptcy.

Senh: Wow. This is a new low for Mitt Romney, trying to claim credit for rescuing the auto industry when he clearly did not.
