From the article: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070212/ap_on_el_pr/on_the2008_trail_21 We read that Romney's choice the announce his candidacy from the the famous Henry Ford Museum is unacceptable because Henry Ford was an anti-semite. Here is my response to the story:
Your attack on Mitt Romney's choice to make his presidential announcement from the Ford Museum is completely unfair and blatantly partisan.
As a former Michigander and one familiar with the auto industry, I find your assertions toward Mitt stunningly inappropriate. I worked for General Motors, so I'm no Ford apologist, but Ford's misguided political beliefs have absolutely nothing to do with the Ford Museum. Have you ever been to the museum? The museum is NOT about Henry Ford himself. But it is, quite simply, the greatest historical collection of American industry and technology ever assembled. It is operated by a "The Henry Ford", an independent, not-for-profit organization.
Mitt's decision to announce from this landmark is ideal, given his focus on strengthening our economy and America's ability to compete on an international scale.
Please, if you have a problem with a candidate in the future, make your argruments substantive and relevant.
You owe Mitt and his campaign an apology.
