If Obama has to lie about something as simple as this, it�s a sad state of affairs.
Weasel Zippers reports that �A new ad by Obama tells the story of Brian Slagle, an autoworker in Ohio who says he was laid off and �scared to death� until the president swooped in to save the industry.�
In the spot, Slagle says, �Obama stuck his neck out for us, the auto industry. . . . He wasn�t going to let it just die, and I�m driving in this morning because of that, because of him.� The ad is meant to praise Obama�s auto bailout for saving jobs.
Indeed, it appears, via Facebook, that Slagle is an employee at Johnson Controls, a Wisconsin company that �create[s] quality products, services and solutions to optimize energy and operational efficiencies of buildings; lead-acid automotive batteries and advanced batteries for hybrid and electric vehicles; and interior systems for automobiles,� according to its website.
I also hear that Obama invented the Internet!
