Et tu, Mitt?

That sentiment was echoed by the Boston Globe, who remind us what Mitt had to say earlier this year:
In the days leading up to the Michigan presidential primary, Mitt Romney cast himself as the savior of the beleaguered auto industry.

"I will roll up my sleeves in the first 100 days I'm in office, and I will personally bring together industry, labor, congressional, and state leaders and together we will develop a plan to rebuild America's automotive leadership," he said in Detroit.

And when rival John McCain gave some "straight talk" in Michigan that "Some of the jobs that have left the state of Michigan are not coming back," Romney jumped all over him and declared that he would not let the "one-state recession" continue.
What a difference losing the primary makes. Earlier today Romney said he favors letting the automakers fail.

Typical Republican. They'll say anything to get themselves elected, but their spots never really change.

I think Willard is just trying to gauge the direction of the prevailing winds.

Lew, he's shooting himself in the foot in the process. The Detroit News was even critical of him in an editorial.
