Obama re-election tour stops in Lordstown

Obama re-election tour stops in Lordstown

LORDSTOWN

A group of local autoworkers thanked Barack Obama today for the president’s federal auto bailout.

Without it, they said, the Lordstown General Motors complex and several companies that supply parts for cars would be out of business.

The “Made in Ohio” stop today, organized by the president’s re-election tour, was outside the Manga Intier Seating Systems plant, a short distance from the Lordstown GM complex. Manga supplies seating parts for the Chevrolet Cruze, made in Lordstown.

This was the last of six stops through Ohio for the “Made in Ohio” campaign.

Kevin Scott, who’s worked at Manga since it opened eight years ago, said it’s likely he’d be out of a job and the plant closed if Obama, a Democrat seeking re-election, didn’t successfully push for the $82 billion bailout of GM and Chrysler in 2009.

The campaign of Mitt Romney, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, has criticized the bailout saying Obama’s “mismanagement of the process cost the American taxpayers $23 billion.”

I guess there is still people out there who want the auto industries to fail but of course not their banks

Keeping his visits a secret is the only way he can avoid all the negative publicity he would receive. He is using his network and taxpayer funding to keep his campaign under the radar and build up his war chest. Wait until the Democratic National Convention when the gloves come off and he begins his famous speeches of hope and change to foam up the hopeful.

I am really worried about our future rights if he is re-elected, as he is already making promises to leaders of Mexico, Russia and the UN that would compromise our Constitutional Rights. Last time I knew, we were called The United States of America, not the United Nations' States of America.

Sorry folks, I just don't trust him. He is forcing higher fuel prices upon us and is taking away Social Security benefits to fund his Obamacare health plan. And if that is not bad enough, I don't want him giving in to Socialist countries and giving up our rights as citizens of the best country in the world. If he gets his way with another term, we will become the next Greece and be in near default of our debt 4 times every year.
