How powerful is Barack Obama? So powerful that he apparently manages to go back in time and cause officials at a car company that went out of business almost 25 years ago to worry about the impact of his terrible policies on their company. Rep. Marsha Blackburn said this during an MSNBC interview:
CHIRS JENSING (HOST): Let me ask you about some of the things going on on the campaign trail, and there’s a controversy about Mitt Romney telling voters that jeep is going to move production to China. According to the company that’s entirely false. Is he lying about that?
BLACKBURN: Oh, well, I don’t know. I haven’t talked with with the campaign staff about that. I will say this. For workers in the auto industry, across the board, whether it is GM, whether it’s Nissan, whether it’s American Motors, individuals are very concerned about the impact of regulation that the EPA and OSHA and other federal agencies are heaping on our manufacturers.
American Motors, which at one point was headed by Mitt Romney’s father, went out of business in 1988. He must have used the same time machine he used to go back to 1961 to plant the fake announcements of his own birth in two Hawaiian newspapers to cover up his Kenyan birth.
