Isn’t it great that people are actually voting for a candidate who is always getting his facts straight?
No, Mitt Romney, Jeep is not shipping our jobs to China: In his latest attempt to distort President Obama’s consistent record of successfully betting on the American worker, Mitt Romney shamelessly tried to scare voters into thinking that Jeep is moving production to China and taking American jobs with it. The claim is blatantly false: As Chrysler made clear, “Jeep has no intention of shifting production of its Jeep models out of North America to China.”
This is especially galling when you consider what’s happening right now with Romney’s Bain Capital shipping American jobs to China via Sensata Tech in Illinois.
Greg Sargent: “Romney may very well be the next president. That’s a position of some responsibility. Yet he and his campaign rushed to tell voters a story designed to stoke their fears for their livelihoods without bothering to vet it for basic accuracy. This is not a small thing. It reveals the depth of Romney’s blithe lack of concern for the truth — and the subservience of it to his own political ambitions.”
