Did Obama Auto Czar Do It “All for the Unions”?

A better question is did Obama do it all for the union campaign help? Rep. Dan Burton (R-IN) questions Mr. Ron Bloom, former Senior Advisor to the Secretary of the Treasury, on whether Mr. Bloom had said at a farewell dinner of the Auto Task Force in late July 2009, “I did this all for the unions.” Mr. Bloom denied the quote, but two independent sources have documented Mr. Bloom saying those words. As such, it appears that either a respected reporter or Mr. Bloom’s former boss in the Obama Administration have both given inaccurate accounts of Mr. Bloom’s comments to the public, or his testimony before Congress was not completely truthful.
