He subsequently clarified his points made on those stump speech's. The fundamentals of his point was..... Jeep is building product in China...... and lot's of them. That process absolutely involves MOVING some equipment ... materials .... logistics .... personnel to China. Not all ... not even close to all.... but some non the less. China does not have spare JEEP factories sitting around full of fabricating equipment / molds / dies / materials / design engineers / production staff trainers ... etc. etc. etc. got it now?

What the car companies have said is that cars are manufactured in the market where they are sold.  BMW makes cars for the American market here, so do Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Subaru.

Jeep makes cars for the Chinese market in China.  They make Jeeps for the American market in the US and likely will continue to do so.

I don't think this will be the vindication you're looking for.  Though Obama might be criticized, and it is possible that Romney was misunderstood on a few things, nevertheless, Romney's careless way of trying to make his case ignored the facts too often.
