Sweden’s subway system is nicer than ours.
The pro-choice, pro-civil union, pro-public option former governor of Massachusetts actually supported the auto bailout before he was against it. Now he’s claiming credit for coming up with the idea. There’s truth amid all the shifting.
Romney wrote a Nov. 2008 column “proposing government help for Detroit but only through a tough-love approach; he insisted on labor concessions, a change in management and a bankruptcy that would cost the shareholders.”
Obama adopted a similar plan. “Government and union co-ownership: It would be as ineffective as it is un-American,” Romney wrote in April 2009.
Now that it’s proven successful, Romney’s flipped again.
“Romney had the idea first. You have to acknowledge that. He was advocating for a course of action that eventually the Obama administration adopted,” Romney spokesman Eric Fehrnstrom told The New York Times last week.
I guess it depends on how you ask the question. Ask Romneytron if he supports a policy enacted by the Obama administration and see what he says.
