Look no further than the bailout, Granholm argued, to see whether Romney's words on economic issues are trustworthy.I had the pleasure of meeting and working with her when the state of Michigan was dealing with the meltdown of the automotive industry as a result of the great recession and rip-off. She is all heart.
"When Michigan was on our knees in our darkest hour in December 2008 ... Mitt Romney took the political assessment of how the public felt about [the] bailout," Granholm said. "And decided that the state that he grew up in ... was not important enough for him to be able to stand with this industry, to stand with the people who are employed there, and so he decided that he would stick a knife in our back when we were on our knees."
"That example of his cravenness should be and is," she said on the call, "why the president is winning in Ohio."
You have no idea how much animosity and opposition there was to helping out the industry and the industrial midwest. Kossocks had pie fights over it, so you can imagine how bad it was from the likes of Romney and the senators from the south looking to boost their own automotive transplants and economies at the expense of Michigan, Ohio and the rest of the industrial midwest. Venture capitalists and Republicans, they're all vultures. Romney and the Republicans were partying on our graves.
