Mitt Romney Defends Himself Over Auto Bailout Decision
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney defended himself this morning during questions about why he opposed a federal bailout of General Motors and Chrysler 2 years ago. Romney is in Michigan today and spoke with diners at a Coney Island Restaurant this morning, saying automakers should have gone through a private bankruptcy without the federal aid. The former Massachusetts Governor and businessman said he believes in the the process of law, rather than bailouts. Dozens of autoworkers and Democrats protested outside the restaurant.
