    My hope is that when Mitt is in Ohio, he will take the opportunity to explain that the “saving of the car company” was really a bankruptcy, just not a legal one, rather a government controlled bankruptcy. It really is explainable.

    I’m sure either he or Ryan will address that sooner or later. Despite all the boo-hooing on our side, they do seem to be doing a great job of connecting with people and speaking to their issues.
