About That Auto Plant Ryan Mentioned…..

But what Ryan said was true.  The Janesville plant was closed in 2009 after Obama took over, and as part of the takeover of GM by the government.

More at the link, of course, but the most favorable spin of the “Ryan was wrong” point is this: while GM said that the plant would close on a future date, it was open when Obama talked about it, and it was passed over for building the Volt and Cruze.  Even specifically mentioned when they announced who’d be building the eco-cars.
