HARFOLD, Vt. - Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, after being lambasted by the general managers of Chrysler and General Motors for bad-mouthing the efforts in of President Obama in the car industry, has purportedly found a dealership in upstate Vermont that will, sort of, back up Romney's claim that the president has forced car jobs overseas.
Willy Birkenbaum, a car salesman of seven months at Ed's GM Resales, appeared to be backed into the corner by a Romney staffer when asked how things were going in Obama's America.
"They asked me how many salesmen we have," said Birkenbaum, "and I said 'one,' that being myself. Then they asked how many we used to have, and I said 'two,' that being myself and Tommy Dubois.
"When they asked me what happened to Tommy, I told them that Tommy had taken a salesman job at the Honda dealership down the road. I guess that was enough for them to think that we'd lost a job overseas.
"You should've seen how happy they were."
