No reason to assume that. Romney was punished by Ohio for his position on the auto bailout.

He tried to provide leadership years ago in writing an op-ed and that helped cost him the presidency.

The problem is naive people think bankruptcy always means liquidation and Obama exploited that poor education. Obama lied; they bought it even though he was continuing Buh's auto bailout policy. People are afraid and Obama won on fear.

Marcy Kaptur is John Murtha in a skirt. As long as she can steer oceans of pork into her district she is never gonna lose.
