Romney ‘Lied like a Rug’! (See Photo)

Remember the closing days of the 2012 presidential campaign when Mitt Romney ran that explosive ad suggesting Chrysler was going to stop building Jeeps in Ohio and move production to China?

The one that got “Four Pinocchios” from the fact-checker at the Washington Post?

The one Romney himself echoed in a speech he delivered near the Jeep plant in Ohio: “I saw a story today that one of the great manufacturers in this state, Jeep, now owned by the Italians, is thinking of moving all production to China.” Right afterward, Meat Loaf performed.

Anyway, that Jeep plant? It didn’t move to China. And it’s actually doing quite well.

No, scratch that: It’s going gangbusters.

Demand for Jeeps is so high that Chrysler workers are clocking 60 hours a week and still can’t keep up. So according to the Toledo Blade, the company is planning on hiring up to 1,000 part-time workers—American workers, in Ohio—so they can crank out enough Jeeps to meet the demand.

Karl Rove ‘Offended’ By Uncontroversial Ad Promoting Major American Company

Via: Wonkette

Tucked amid the Stupor Bowl teevee commercials for naked chocolate candies, cheesy salt chips, war pornography, and the latest domestic water-beers was this one featuring old Clint Eastwood, the next Bat-Man, scouring stadium catacombs for the The Joker or maybe the Taco Bell.

“It’s halftime in America and our second half’s about to begin,” he says, to cringes everywhere.

But the ad’s main point is just “Hey let’s hope the Chrysler car company gets back on its feet.”

Sure, that sounds fine!

Unless you’re known anus Karl Rove, who is offended by Eastwood’s hope for the recovery of one of America’s large companies.

personal thought:

Next years Super Bowl: I’m a die hard Seahawk Fan, but if the Lions win the NFC/Super Bowl; hey, that would be cool!
