It would appear as though everybody in the entire world were not the only ones who were a little shocked and confused by Mitt Romney's recent attempt to grab credit for the bailout that pulled the Michigan auto industry back from the brink of destruction.
John McCain, today, was caught a little off guard when asked about it…
"Romney said that he was responsible for the auto bailout?" asked Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) in disbelief, unaware that Romney had told a local affiliate in Ohio he should be credited for having saved the industry.
Oh, wait, what? He said what on the who now? Are we still saying that that was a bad thing? We are? Okay, then. But how would… Oh, we are but we aren't?
"I'd have to look at the context of his remarks. I know that if the auto companies had gone into bankruptcy like thousands of small businesses had to do across America, they could've emerged without the sweetheart deal for the unions like was orchestrated by the Obama administration."
Tough one for McCain. I'm sure he probably thought his days of struggling to make sense of a candidate's nonsensical ramblings were behind him.
