Reading comprehension might help you some. It wasn't a "promise to keep the plant open." It was "economic promises" that he did not deliver on. Not only did he not deliver on those promises, he instead opted to go an entirely different route and raise debt through the roof. He went from promises designed to keep plants open, to delivering policies designed to insure they stay firmly shut down.
It's the SCOAMF way.
Same as his stupid claim to start lowering the sea and making jobs his focus. He barely shows up to work, let alone mustering enough time to "focus" on anything but fundraising.
If the Romney/Ryan team put out a daily message correcting a different Obama "untruth", I wonder how many messages would be left unplayed by November 6, 2012?
His campaign is all lies and he tries to distract US from the real issues like gas prices, the fake more drillling he swore we were doing/BS, the deficit, unemployment and the list goes on and on. Romney must win.
I despair. Will the American people never see in time before the election, that this man is a very dangerous liar?
The Janesville plant closed because the economy hit a recession combined with the fact that GM was already struggling. Obama had nothing to do with it. Plus, it would have been a stupid policy to spend tax money to keep every single plant (of a private company) permanently open. In fact, many conservatives were against the decision to bail out GM in the first place (and I can see why).
It is true that every single fact Paul Ryan said about the GM plant was true.
That said, there's nothing to attack Obama on with relation to the plant.
Oh puleeeze, we know what Obama was implying. How much you wanna bet they're being punished because they were making gas-guzzling, global-warming SUV's and trucks?
Obama made promises with regard to the economy, and implied his changes would lead to keeping the plant open.
Ryan's point was that Obama made a LOT of those sorts of promises, and failed to deliver on any of them.
The plant closed. Obama's economy made sure it would stay that way.
It's not an attack. It's just the sad truth.
Obama is a tool......someone should make a bumper sticker
"Don't Re-tool in 2012. Vote Romney / Ryan."

Hey Right Scoop!!...please make sure this ad gets over to the others like HotAir, Drudge, Hannity, Fox, Ace, Redstate, Instapundit, Townhall, Weekly Standard and others please!!!
Great AD....now this must be run NATIONWIDE...for sure in Ohio, Wisconsin, Iowa, Michigan, Florida and Virginia......hit the CREEP With his own words....THAT IS THE KEY take his own words....AND SLAM HIM WITH THEM!! OVER AND OVER AGAIN.....Rattle that cage night and day from the right and from the right and from the center....never let him rest!! (NO LEFT MENTIONED ON PURPOSE!!) Obama cannot handle his own words used against him...HE IS A DICTATOR and therefore what he says IS!!! Not matter what the facts!!
Ryan nailed him beautifully and FACTUALLY...here that WaPo with your LIBERAL FACT CHECKER on the OBAMA PAYROLL!!
RUN THIS ALL OVER AND RUN IT HARD!!!!
I don't think this ad was very honest. However, it may be effective.
Obama said those things, but nothing he did or didn't do impacted the closing of that plant.
Plenty of other, more concrete things to bust Obama on.
It was his fricken car czar that made the decisions. O'Bambi didn't want this plant saved because the state was turning red and was going against his union donors. Wise up.
No, based on the timeline, it was obviously a decision that GM management had already had locked in.
I understand it was an empty promise by Obama, but I think the ad is simply dishonest...and Democrats will attack it as dishonest.
There are plenty of other things which one can bash against Obama which don't have the air of falsehood.
Obama had complete control over GM--he directed or had the authority to direct plant closings, dealer shut downs and re directed all of the authority to go to union bosses--so he had the control to keep Janesville open--another empty promise and he is down to just his Obama fools believing him now.
CPAguy, there is no question that Obama could not have done anything to save that plant. So why tell those people he could? They were vulnerable, and he offered them hope. If you vote for me/the Democrats, your plant will be here for the next 100 years.......
That's Ryan's point.. not the fact that the plant closed, but that fact that Obama pretty much said if you vote for me/us, it won't. Obama made that promise in exchange for votes. I think it's fair game. He said it -- he owns it.
Instead of letting the bankruptcy court handle GM--Obama tool over and had his people direct what got shut down all the way from plants to auto dealers--he had the control along with billions of our tax money. He shut out the lawful investors and funneled it to the union bosses. Obama simply made an empty promise like he has for the last 4 years.
Can anyone tell me where this ads are playing?, because only us the political junkies are paying attention, this ad should be on tv in WI, please stop the online ads and start doing targeted ads.
Yeah! I am gonnna vote for the white, Christian, straight, guys.
I mean heck, after all, seein' that that President Barack Hussein Obama, umm umm umm, has revealed to me my true inner racist, islamophobe, bigot, I may as well enjoy it now.
Mormons are Christians? Don't think so see Galatians 1.
Regardless doesn't it seem a bit stupid to be playing this ad when Romney didn't even support the auto bailouts? I think the GOPe walked right into a trap on this one and the Dems are going to hammer him on this one.
Over the past 12 years the GOPe and Bush have been very UNconservative by my standards. The RNC turned themselves into the DNC during the primaries and Romney gave the grassroots conservatives the finger at his convention. No thanks. Gridlock is very underrated and more conservative by default than a Republican party run by RINOs willing to appease and please a new President from their party. I've seen that movie before and it didn't end well. And if Obama wasn't such a dufus the GOPe would still be wondering in the wilderness. What thanks do the TP get? The GOPe basically said thanks for 2010 but we'll take it from here and tried to stomp out the TPers.
The RNC and RINOs went out of their way to make sure a conservative didn't get the nomination for an election that was the best chance to get an actual conservative in the WH in a very long time. I will not reward them for their duplicity. The writing is on the wall, the RNC and RINOs want to bury conservatives once and for all.
Romney also gave grassroots folks the finger at the convention.
I don't vote for progressives! Why is that so hard to understand?
The Republican Party leadership didn't nominate Romney, for one thing; the voters did. Furthermore, you can't blame the voters for you not voting for Romney. The voters who nominated Romney can't control who you vote for. Only you can.
Also, if Obama wins reelection blame the GOPe for not nominating someone I could vote for.
No Other Gospel
6 I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you to live in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— 7 which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. 8 But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let them be under God’s curse! 9 As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let them be under God’s curse!
10 Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.
Joseph Smith claims he was visited by an angel or alien from planet Kolob and translated his golden tablets or what ever. If I'm lying then so is Paul. I think I'll take his word over yours thank you very much.
You offer nothing but false choices and sound very much like a progressive yourself with your extremely simpleton BS and name calling. In fact you sound just like an Obamatron.
The Democrat nor Republican party own my vote, the Dems will never get it because they are collectivist and Romney has to earn it, he hasn't. Get over it.
I don't sound like a Democrat. You sound like a Democrat because #1, you're lying, and #2, you are in the process of helping an extremist Democrat win with your voting decisions.
If you don't vote for Romney BECAUSE OF his religion, you are bigoted. If you don't vote for a progressive named Obama BECAUSE OF his race, you are bigoted. Get a dictionary if you don't know what it means to be bigoted.
Mormons are not Christians. They have a very different belief system and you obviously haven't read Galatians 1 which warns of Joseph Smiths. You can pretend Mormons are Christians all you want but it doesn't make it so.
I don't care about Romney's religion as far as voting for him. I think he's a progressive and a flop flipping liar who'll say or do anything to get elected. I don't vote for progressives.
Also, Democrats say I'm racist because I won't vote for a progressive named Obama. You sound just like them. Romney and some of his supporters are Obama-lite in more ways than one. No thanks.
The "bailouts" were for the unions not for the business. The gov't has no role in private enterprise ownership. Just look at the recent releases on taxpayers losing 100% of the investment, gov't purchasing GM vehicles to make the #s look better, Volt fires upon fires upon fires with extremely expense recall.
I'm predicting the debates will be the most viewed in the history of televised Presidential debates. Its hard to explain economics in 3 minute sound bites.
Obama is going to explain that plant was one of the oldest of those considered for closure, point out his VP voted for the auto bailout etc...
I still believe it was a mistake, we'll see.
I think they are pushing the broken promises and now responding to the media that called Ryan a liar. If bankruptcy had been filed, would be reasonable to the plant to be retooled and funds could have been set aside to do it. O'Bambi's big accomplishment is that GM is alive. Well, it really isn't. Like Solendra, it is more taxpayer $$$ down the drain with O'Bambi fundraisers financially rewarded for 2008. The debates will be silly because only liberals are moderators and they will gush for O'Bambi and toss him simple questions and take nonresponses while butchering Romney.
I totally agreed with Romney on the auto bailouts and I'm just givbing my opinion from a political perspective. The Romney camp walked right into the clobbering they're going to get in the debates on that one. I guess we'll find out soon enough if it was a mistake or not.
I think Mitt has a good response for that because he supported the auto makers taking the usual reorganization under our bankruptcy laws instead of bailouts. Which would have allowed them to restructure their loans and negotiate new contracts. Now that we know G"M is bankrupt again, I would think Mitt's choice would have even more credibility.
I wasn't for the auto bailouts.
I was just pointing out that its kind of stupid to keep pushing that meme because now its probably going to come up in the debates and Obama is going to say "you didn't support the auto bailouts Mitt".
Its politically stupid for the Romney team to be pushing this one to score a few points in WI. My opinion I could be wrong.
The tax payers should not be bailing anyone out--there are legal bankruptcy laws that should be allowed to work--it would not cost jobs to the contrary of the liberal press. When are the people going to wise up and see for themselves that liberals lie.
If the taxpayers shouldn't bail out the auto industry, then why is the Romney campaign critiquing Obama on something that he had nothing to do with--particularly if you agree that the government shouldn't bail out industries? If the government didn't bail out the auto industry, then there would be more plants--like the Janesville plant--that closed, while this ad argues that plants closing is "bad" and that politicians should have some amount of blame for it.
Yup, I think it's time to start reveling in our islamophobic, bigoted, racist, evangelical thoughts and friendships!
Time to stand tall and proud.
