Mitt Romney’s opposition to the government bailout of Detroit appears not to concern him when it comes to his political ads, the Washington Examiner reports.
The presidential candidate’s latest has him tooling around the town of his birth in a Chrysler 300, a car that may no longer be in production if it weren’t for the bailout, point out his detractors.
"Didn’t Romney oppose the government buying them, and then he drives a government owned auto in his commercial? Or am I reading this wrong?" the Examiner quotes one unnamed “challenger” as saying.
But the former Massachusetts governor’s camp defended the ad. "Gov. Romney is thrilled that Chrysler and GM are building cars at a profit once again and no one is rooting for them more than Mitt Romney, a native son of Detroit. We didn't need President Obama's crony capitalism to get this result," said Andrea Saul.
