Snyder: No 'Dwelling on the Auto Bailout'

Michigan's governor supported the bailout. Romney did not. Is their difference awkward?

Mitt Romney opposed the auto bailout. Michigan Republican Gov. Rick Snyder, a Romney backer, supported it. And on Sunday, with Romney essentially tied with Rick Santorum ahead of Tuesday’s Michigan primary, Snyder tried to minimize the bailout’s importance in the race.

“Well, what I said very clearly is, the bailout of the auto industry is working,” he said on ABC’s This Week. “And I'm not going to go armchair quarterback it. I think there are alternative scenarios that could have worked also, but the point is, is that is history, and the important part is it was successful, we're moving along, creating jobs.” 

He continued: “So the question shouldn't be dwelling on the auto bailout. It really is the question of what are the candidates really talking about to help someone find a job today and tomorrow?”
