“He [Romney] was willing to let Detroit go bankrupt.”

--Vice President Joe Biden

This statement is drawn from a headline--“Let Detroit Go Bankrupt”-- on an opinion article written by Romney for The New York Times. But he did not say that in the article.

In the article, Romney argued that if the automakers “get the bailout that their chief executives asked for yesterday, you can kiss the American automotive industry goodbye. It won’t go overnight, but its demise will be virtually guaranteed.”
