Obama says Ohio Eatery New Chefs Helped by Auto Bailout, Then Restaurant Goes Out of Business
An Ohio restaurant that President Obama recently praised as an indirect beneficiary of the government's auto bailout is going out of
business. The owners of Toledo's New Chet's Restaurant, which has a 90-year history, said the struggling economy and a recently imposed smoking ban
has taken a toll on the eatery.Last Friday at a Chrysler plant in Toledo, the President said the government-assisted return of the American car
industry helped local businesses - and singled out Chet's.
And the most 'duh!!!' line of the article ....
The Obama administration said no one knew when the President was in Toledo that the restaurant would be closing.
I think this is the restaurant that the picture of Obama was taken at ... of him eating a chilidog that goes completely against the FLOTUS' push for
eating healthy. It was a joke in the news and in the papers.
My comments -
1 - The 'bail out' was a waste. It didn't work.
2 - Watch the obamatrons in the MSM not report this.
MSNBC and NY Times are too busy digging through Palin's emails to do so.
If Palin had pulled this gaffe as POTUS, they'd be all over it.
3 - The owners of the restaurant say the bailout came too late to help them. But the fact is that it wasn't 'too late'. Bailout money started
under Bush43 and continued with Obama. It's been out there for a long time and it simply didn't work.
4 - If the economy wasn't such a serious issue, part of this would be comical. Obama and his political cronies show, once again, that they are
clueless. (Kinda reminds me of him giving the Queen of England a freak'n IPOD as a state gift
) No one was smart enough to check out Chets
to see if it was solvant or not before the POTUS used it as an example of how 'wonderful' the bailout worked?
BTW - Take the bail out quiz at the article ... 67% of Americans are sure the 'bail out' was a complete waste.
