Don't look now......

Don't look now----
Mitt Romney is hoping that you didn't bookmark/read the opinion piece that he wrote for the New York Times in 2008 that had the following as a headline:
 "Let Detroit Go Bankrupt."

Now Romney wants credit for the recovered American auto industry.  HuffingtonPost has all the dirty details:

....Despite his 2008 call to "let Detroit go bankrupt," presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney said Monday that he would "take a lot of credit" for his impact on the U.S. automobile industry's comeback. 

During an interview with WEWS-TV in Cleveland following a campaign stop, Romney said his views helped save the industry. 

"I pushed the idea of a managed bankruptcy," Romney said. "And finally, when that was done, and help was given, the companies got back on their feet. So I'll take a lot of credit for the fact that this industry's come back." 

Will Mitt Romney soon take credit for removing Osama bin Laden, ending the war in Iraq, finding a cure for cancer, etc., etc., etc.?  Mitt Romney is a pompous, dressage horse owner. What else can you expect from a man that said, "Corporations are people too, my friend...."?
