Local UAW president blasts Romney ad


The leaders of two local auto unions are demanding that Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney stop airing two advertisements that reference General Motors and Chrysler.

The advertisements being run by Romney are intentionally misleading and are designed to scare the public, said Dave Green, president of United Auto Workers 1714 in Lordstown.

The add states that General Motors cut 15,000 American jobs. It also mentions both GM and Chrysler intend to increase the number of vehicles they build in China.

“The insinuation is that GM has cut American jobs and plans to move those jobs to China that couldn’t be further from the truth,” Green said.

I highly doubt that local union leaders have any idea as to what the long term plans of GM's leadership are.

I would think local UNION leaders have a greater knowledge of GM future the Willard does.

Romney rambles so much he has no idea what is true and what are lies anymore. Even if he spoke the truth today he will LIE about it tomorrow.

My guess is that the UAW just doesn't want the people to know that they are only backing BO ( Blame Others) for president just for this reason. You see as stockholders they will benefit the most from the corporations moving overseas. They would be able to make alot more profits on their stock shares without the worries of keeping their membership happy.The tariff rates would be nothing compared to the profits that they will make.. Just look at what the union charges as membership dues per person.That is really nothing to what the profits that they could realize from the move.

I just have to gasp at the bold faced lies I see in Romney's TV ads. How can anyone with half a brain believe this nonsense?
