Jeep: We’re staying in U.S., and Romney is wrong

From the Royal Oak (Mich.) Daily Tribune:

Chrysler Group LLC’s top executive said any statements by presidential candidate Mitt Romney suggesting the company was moving Jeep production from its assembly complex in Toledo, Ohio was simply not true.

“Chrysler Group’s production plans for the Jeep brand have become the focus of public debate,” Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne said in a statement on Tuesday.

“I feel obliged to unambiguously restate our position: Jeep production will not be moved from the United States to China,” he continued. “Jeep assembly lines will remain in operation in the United States and will constitute the backbone of the brand. … It is inaccurate to suggest anything different.”

Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney has begun running ads in Ohio, stating Chrysler planned to move Jeep production to China. Analysts described the ads as part of Romney’s efforts to pry the state’s pivotal 18 electoral votes from President Barack Obama.

The letter from Marchionne, published first in the Detroit News, went on to explain:

“North American production is critical to achieving our goal of selling 800,000 Jeep vehicles by 2014. In fact, U.S. production of our Jeep models has nearly tripled (it is expected to be up 185%) since 2009 in order to keep up with global demand.

We also are investing to improve and expand our entire U.S. operations, including our Jeep facilities. The numbers tell the story:

– We will invest more than $1.7 billion to develop and produce the next generation Jeep SUV, the successor of the Jeep Liberty — including $500 million directly to tool and expand our Toledo Assembly Complex and will be adding about 1,100 jobs on a second shift by 2013.

– At our Jefferson North Assembly Plant, where we build the Jeep Grand Cherokee, we have created 2,000 jobs since June 2009 and have invested more than $1.8 billion.

– In Belvidere, where we build two Jeep models, we have added two shifts since 2009 resulting in an additional 2,600 jobs.

With the increase in demand for our vehicles, especially Jeep branded vehicles, we have added more than 11,200 U.S. jobs since 2009. Plants producing Jeep branded vehicles alone have seen the number of people invested in the success of the Jeep brand grow to more than 9,300 hourly jobs from 4,700. This will increase by an additional 1,100 as the Liberty successor, which will be produced in Toledo, is introduced for global distribution in the second quarter of 2013.”

It’s hard to predict the impact of such events, especially in the media shadow of Hurricane Sandy coverage. But you would think that the Romney campaign’s blatant willingness to mislead and to frighten thousands of Americans unnecessarily about their job security at Jeep would have a serious effect on public opinion and would lead at least some voters to question his credibility on a range of other issues as well. It demonstrates a fundamental lack of respect for those to whom the truth about such matters is critically important.

Also, if Jeep opens a plant in China, I expect that to mean they are selling to the Chinese, not importing those back to the US.

I would expect that type of move.

Now, if 20 years down the road, Jeep starts to import the Chinese made Jeeps, then that is an issue for 20 years from now.

Chrysler is owned by……drumroll please…..FIAT. And here we find:

“In any case, Chrysler issued a statement saying it was considering resuming production of Jeeps in China that had been suspended in 2009, pending the outcome of the bailout and sale of the company to Fiat.

“Let’s set the record straight: Jeep has no intention of shifting production of its Jeep models out of North America to China,” Chrysler said.

“It’s simply reviewing the opportunities to return Jeep output to China for the world’s largest auto market,” the company said.

In fact there is yet another wrinkle to the Jeep story because, according to Autoblog, Fiat plans to begin building Jeeps in Italy on the same assembly line on which it builds Alfa Romeos, the storied marque it acquired years ago.

The Italian-built Jeeps will mostly be exported to the U.S. for sale here, whereas the Jeeps to be built in China will almost certainly all be sold in Asia.

Confused? Don’t be. Automakers around the world have for several decades been rationalizing production by moving specific models to facilities that can most efficiently and profitably produce them, regardless of where they are located.

That is a major – though not the only – reason why the Japanese, South Korean and German companies have built major facilities here in the U.S. and why U.S. companies have built major facilities in places like Mexico and China.

It’s a trend that almost certainly won’t stop regardless of who occupies the White House for the next four years.”

At least 40% of this country will vote for Romney regardless to what he says and how it’s exposed. Simply having the (R) behind his name means he will win the popular votes in states, such as Georgia, with 99.9% probability. He’s been exposed from the time he started running, even by other GOP candidates. That didn’t matter much then, and it won’t matter much now.

While Romney canceled his campaign plans in Virginia on Sunday, in addition to an event in Wisconsin Monday night, he still held a rally in Iowa Monday. The campaign said the event was attended by 2,250 people, according to a count of those who went through security.

Well, all this just proves Mitt needs to fire his campaign staff and hire people that know what they’re doing. You don’t start a rumor like that a week before the election. You wait till the day before the election, so the Obama people won’t have time to dispute it and all the people go to the polls mad.

Geez! Maybe they should of nominated me to run.

I am better than a lot of things Pariah, worked hard at it lo’ these many years.

Sadly, the right wing idea of more transparency is outing CIA operations in a congressional hearings.

I don’t buy your reasoning at all.

Nope, not at all.

Would someone please tell me what the cons are going on about when they say Obama “lied” about Benghazi? Because I know their concept of what constitutes a “cover up” is complete nonsense, so I suspect this might be too.

Joe, 4:19,

Revised…..”Sorry about those 4 Americans killed at our consulate in Libya”, which Bozo described as “not optimal”, “but I have a plane to catch for Vegas”. Is that better?
