Left-wing partisans and media lapdoggies get really, really touchy when you spoil their pristine Obama narratives. The Obama-as-autoworkers’-savior plot line is well-worn. The White House response to counter-narratives like the shafted Delphi workers is to scream their fables louder.
Tonight, GOP vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan noted that Obama had failed to keep his promise to autoworkers in his hometown of Janesville, WI. Wisconsin GOP Gov. Scott Walker also noted the failure.
So, who “lied” about Janesville? Ryan’s speech accurately described the plant’s history and status. Read it again:
But the Left misses the point. Under Obamanomics, the government picks winners and losers. Obama promised Janesville would be a winner even as his economic policies guaranteed it would always be a loser. Indeed, Obama’s whole 2008 Janesville speech is a sobering road map for the job-killing policies he has put in place as president.
