The rats are jumping off the rapidly sinking Romney yacht as fast as they can. Even Governor Kasich knows how badly the Jeep-to-China lie played in Ohio.
Go team blue!
ANCHOR: And is Jeep creating more jobs in Ohio or are they sending them to China?
KASICH: No. Chrysler has, has — Chrysler is the one automaker that has increased employment.
After Romney’s claims led to auto workers calling their employers because they feared for their jobs, Chrysler chief executive Sergio Marchione wrote a letter to the Detroit News refuting Romney. “Jeep assembly lines will remain in operation in the United States and will constitute the backbone of the brand,” Marchione wrote. “It is inaccurate to suggest anything different.” He also noted, as Kasich said, that Chrysler has added American jobs since the auto industry rescue: “With the increase in demand for our vehicles, especially Jeep branded vehicles, we have added more than 11,200 U.S. jobs since 2009.”
