President Obama Hits Back On Auto Bailout

Speaking to the United Auto Workers union yesterday, President Obama responded to the critics of the so-called auto bailout. Said the President:
I’ve got to admit, it’s been funny to watch some of these politicians completely try to rewrite history now that you’re back on your feet. The same folks who said if we went forward with our plan to rescue Detroit, ‘You can kiss the American automotive industry goodbye.’ Now they’re saying we were right all along. Or you’ve got folks saying ‘Well the real problem is, what we really disagreed with was the workers, they all made out like bandits, that saving the auto industry was just about paying back unions. Really? Even by the standards of this town, that’s a load of you know what.
I'm viewing this as the President's first real shot across the bow of the Republican party for the general election this fall -- even though there is not an official Republican nominee. Yet.
