Doubling Down on Detroit

Just to make sure that everyone heard him the first time, Mitt Romney reiterated his “Let Detroit Go Bankrupt” meme in an editorial yesterday in the Detroit News.

Three years ago, in the midst of an economic crisis, a newly elected President Barack Obama stepped in with a bailout for the auto industry. The indisputable good news is that Chrysler and General Motors are still in business. The equally indisputable bad news is that all the defects in President Obama’s management of the American economy are evident in what he did.

I don’t know who is giving Mr. Romney his campaign advice, but I think I’d like to send him or her a box of candy and a stripper.
