Obama repeated his plans for the federal government to spend money to help the auto companies retool to build more fuel-efficient cars. In one of many sharp digs at Bush's reluctance to address the auto industry's problems, Obama added, "I won't wait until the sixth year of my presidency to sit down with the automakers."
In fact, Bush met with the auto company executives in 2003 -- his third year in office -- though the feeling is widespread in Detroit that the president has been indifferent to the industry's plight. Obama has criticized automakers, as well.
Even when the Freep points out another Obama's falsehood, they feel compelled to immediately rationalize and justify it with the gratuitous shot at President Bush. Heck, it's probably Bush's fault whenever Obama spreads his particular brand of fertilizer, since it is apparently impossible to think or speak properly when so infuriated by the destruction Bush has wrought throughout the land.
