Now Mitt is taking credit for the auto bailout.  He said that his advice was to take Detroit thru a controlled bankruptcy.  He thinks that this is what the President did and it was his statement which encouraged the President.

Imagine working for Mitt and going to him with an idea.  I can see him being the type to tell you to take the day off, and then pitching your idea.  If it works, then it was his but if it fails, then it is yours.
