Aide Says Auto Bailout was Romney's Idea

Romney adviser Eric Fehrnstrom said that President Obama's decision to bailout Chrysler and General Motors was actually Romney's idea, The Hill reports.

Said Fehrnstrom: "His position on the bailout was exactly what President Obama followed. I know it infuriates them to hear that. The only economic success that President Obama has had is because he followed Mitt Romney's advice."

The claim appears to be a shift from Mitt Romney's November 2008 op-ed in the New York Times, headlined, "Let Detroit go bankrupt."
