Ohio's un-employment rate
24
Mon, 10-29-2012 - 8:46am

 Our un-employment rate has dropped to 6%.    5.7 % in Central Ohio.   Kasich, our Governor, doesn't want anyone to know this as it will help Obama.    Obama saved the auto industry and jobs here are spreading.     Former Governor Strickland was responsible for a new plant -research center - test track-race track being build about 20 miles away.    Bringing about 500 jobs here.

Some people wouldn't recognise the truth if it bit them in the rear.     Taft (REpublican) Darn near destroyed Ohio.   We were bleeding jobs.  Taft and Boehner held the door open while jobs fled our state.  Un-employmeny was over 12%.   Strickland came in and cleaned up a lot of the mess, help create new jobs that are now built and hiring.  

If someone wants to beleive what "Rush Baby" and fox spews, that's there choice.   I prefer the truth.   But then look at the pathological liar they want to become president.    Ohio will thank our President Obama by giving him a win.

Actually, Chrysler is considering having the Jeeps built for the China market actually built in China instead of America, where they're built today.  No matter how you look at it, it amounts to outsourcing American jobs to China.

And what did Obama do that saved those "thousands of jobs" in Ohio?  If you're referring to the bail out, you're mistaken.  Those jobs would have been saved through a structured bankruptcy, as Romney suggested...which is also what Obama eventually did...after he paid off his union cronies with ownership rights in GM and destroyed the pensions of the Delphi workers.  And unlike Romney's plan, which would have created a healthy company, Obama brought GM out of bankruptcy too quick, which left the company unstable, saddled with debilitating debt and forced to build a line of "green" cars that were crap and no one wanted, even with HUGE government rebates...ALL of which damaged GM and it's brand.

But you're right, Kasich had nothing to do with the bail out...and please remember that when GM files for bankruptcy again.  Even if you want to disregard reality and claim that Obama "saved" the GM jobs, that does not account for any lowering of the unemployment numbers, it only would have maintained the high status quo.  It's not a coincidence that the economy started improving AFTER Kasich was elected and began implimenting his pro-growth policies.  The same has been true of almost every other Republican run state that has enacted conservative policies.  Those with the worst numbers are, not coincidentally, run by Democrats.  If the numbers are better next month, send Gov. Kasich some flowers as a thank you.

Wow!!!  What a lie!!  Faux News needs to get their facts straight.   Jeep isn't going anywhere.   The CEO was on the local news last night, blasting this lie.   Obama saved Thousnads of jobs in Ohio.  Kasich had nothing to do with it.  If he had, then wouldn't he be screaming it from the roof tops?     Nice try, but the jobs are spreading here.  I expect next months numbers will be even better.

Actually, Kasich doesn't want to over-advertise the unemployment numbers because he knows that Obama will lie and claim that the economic improvement in Ohio is due to something he did, rather than the reality that it's directly the result of the conservative policies Kasich put in place since being elected.

As for Obama saving the auto industry...no, not at all.  Obama outsourced the sale of Chrysler...to an Italian company...who outsourced American jobs building Jeeps to China.  He propped up GM with billions of taxpayer dollars to provide political payoffs to his cronies in the UAW while whiping out the pensions of non-union Delphi workers.  If GM had followed Romney's suggestion of a structured bankruptcy, the company would have come out leaner and meaner and ready to compete.  Instead, because of Obama, they are still burdened with oppressive debt and were forced to build cars to suit Obama's green agenda that have failed technologically and that no one wants to buy, further damaging the GM brand and it's overall productivity.
