    "I'll give him this: Romney did say the government should provide guarantees. On that single point, Romney is being truthful. But guarantees weren't going to be enough, and Romney has no answers for the real questions."

    Government guarantees were not merely not "going to be enough" it was a worthless gesture.  When no one in the private capital market was willing much less able to step forward and provide billions to bailout the auto industry; Mitt was essentially saying the government should back up nothing.  There weren't going to be any private lenders to back.
