    Mitt continues to lie about how he opposed financial help for the auto industry in 2008.

    ASSOCIATED PRESS(2008) ROMNEY ADAMANTLY AGAINST AUTO BAILOUT

    Romney said that "there's no question but that if you just write a check, you're going to see these companies go out of business ultimately."

    I don't think anybody was suggesting "just write a check," so Romney was doing what he always does - making something up so he can claim to oppose it. He makes himself the hero battling against some imaginary straw man. And since he takes both sides on every issue, he can always claim to be "right" and "brave" later.

    He's ding the same thing with the Chinese Jeeps story - he's creating an imaginary threat so he pretend to be the savior.

    He's like Jack in The Lord Of The Flies promising to save the boys from the imaginary "Beast."

    Short version - Mitt continues to pile lies on top of lie.
