Obama: ‘What Gov. Romney said just isn’t true’ (VIDEO)

October 16, 2012

President Obama went on offense early on in Tuesday night's town hall debate, declaring that Mitt Romney’s characterization of the auto bailout wasn't true.

"And I know he keeps saying, you want to take Detroit bankrupt. Well, the president took Detroit bankrupt. You took General Motors bankrupt. You took Chrysler bankrupt. So when you say that I wanted to take the auto industry bankrupt, you actually did,” Romney said. 

“What Gov. Romney said just isn’t true,” Obama responded. 

The Obama campaign has repeatedly charged that Romney was not truthful in the first debate.
