Corn on MSNBC: Romney Tries to Take Credit for the Auto Bailout He Opposed

David Corn joined MSNBC’s Martin Bashir to discuss Mitt Romney’s attempt to take credit for the 2009 auto bailout, which, of course, he opposed. Lest we forget, Romney penned an op-ed for the New York Times titled “Let Detroit Go Bankrupt” in November, 2008.
