    And, in the context of having had quite enough of Mitt and his lies, that term auto worker includes the executive team at Chrysler.

    Speaking of car companies,

    ..., when asked if he could make a decision as Secretary of Defense that would be adverse to the interests of General Motors, [Charles Erwin] Wilson answered affirmatively. But he added that he could not conceive of such a situation "because for years I thought what was good for our country was good for General Motors, and vice versa". This statement has been misquoted endlessly, in the inverted form of "What's good for General Motors is good for the country" as an example of the self-centered attitude of executives.
    That was 1953. Misquoted or not, there is a significant overlap of conditions which help industry and conditions which help the nation at large. Now in 2012, Chrysler has apparently identified a potential condition so damaging to itself and its country that two of their executives have spoken publicly to help avert it.
