Letterman: Say, Obama’s kind of lying about this GM bankruptcy thing, huh?



Reported by Hotair.com

quote:

DAVID LETTERMAN, HOST: Here’s what upset me last night, this playing fast and loose with facts. And the President Obama cites the op-ed piece that Romney wrote about Detroit, “Let them go bankrupt, let them go bankrupt,” and last night he brings it up again. “Oh, no, Governor, you said let them go bankrupt, blah blah blah, let them go bankrupt.” And Mitt said, “No, no, check the thing, check the thing, check the thing.”

Now, I don’t care whether you’re Republican or Democrat, you want your president to be telling the truth; you want the contender to be lying. And so what we found out today or soon thereafter that, in fact, the President Obama was not telling the truth about what was excerpted from that op-ed piece. I felt discouraged.

RACHEL MADDOW: Because the “Let Detroit go bankrupt” headline you feel like was inappropriate?

LETTERMAN: Well, the fact the President is invoking it and swearing that he was right and that Romney was wrong and I thought, well, he’s the president of course he’s right. Well, it turned out no, he was taking liberties with that.

He was lying.

You aren't familiar with the story. There was no private money to do Romney's plan Even Bain didn't want any of that.

I can't link you videos of the GM folks in charge.

Wow! If I had not heard Letterman actually say it (in the video) I would have thought you made up his words. "Taking liberties with it" = lying.

But Rex says Obama was not lying.

Your position is banks would have refused to loan GM money in spite of a blanket loan guarantee from the federal government, which is what Romney proposed in his Op-Ed piece???

Is that your final answer?

Of course there wasn't any money, until they went into a managed bankruptcy. One where proper rules were to be followed and union and other contracts negotiated out.
