26. By coincidence, I was just reading Mitt Romney's "thoughts" on this subject

 

The son of the former head of American Motors should at least be able to say something sensible about automobiles, right?

Well, maybe not.

In Romneyland, foreign manufacturers have a "cost advantage" over American manufacturers of about $2,000 per vehicle. What are the sources of this difference? According to Romney, the three most important are:
1. The United Auto Workers (negotiated pension and health benefits for retirees).
2. The United Auto Workers again (negotiated wages and work rules).
3. The federal government's fuel economy standards.

This wisdom is dispensed at pages 117-18 of his book No Apology.

Pander much, Mitt?
