Obama Heads To Detroit Auto Show

He “bailed” them out, though Detroit automaker executives will quickly point out that it was a loan, and not a bail-out.

But there is no denying that many were critical of the infusion of cash the Obama administration bestowed on automakers at the height of the 2009 crash, including then Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who opined that he’d had let them declare bankruptcy and restructure more effectively.

President Obama makes his first visit to the Detroit Auto Show Wednesday, where he’ll get plenty of pats on the back… and maybe some help in deciding what car he’ll buy once he leaves office. He may also get a word from Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder, regarding the Flint situation.
