Fact Checker Slams Obama's Auto Industry Speech

Tue Jun 07, 2011 7:17 pm

Interesting. Obama gets a "three Pinocchio" for his Auto Industry "recovery" Speech the other day. His speech writers would do well to just "stick with the facts" please.
Here's the link to the article in today's Washington Post:

It;s only fair to post the White house's response.

It would be better if Fact Checker stuck with the facts as well instead of making assumptions and playing up differing sympathies while critiquing issues that occured in a very scary point of time.

Those loans were made to the Auto Industry during a period of an intense meltdown. I will say that I truly believe without the extra 8 + billion in loans, the US would be looking at a 4 billion dollar loss on the short side instead of a 1.3 billion dollar loss.

Well since bringing up Obama in a Palin thread is OK... the opposite must be true

Yup. Classic case of he said-he said/he said -she said.
I'll believe the Fact Checker before I believe the spin the politicians put out.
