You don't? Because Mitt Romney spokesman Eric Fehrnstrom sure does:
At a Saturday forum hosted by the Washington Post, Fehrnstrom said that Obama’s auto industry rescue was successful because it was exactly what Romney himself proposed.
“[Romney’s] position on the bailout was exactly what President Obama followed,” Fehrnstrom said. “He said, ‘If you want to save the auto industry, just don’t write them a check. That will seal their doom. What they need to do is go through a managed bankruptcy process.’”
“Consider that the crown jewel,” Fehrnstrom said. “The only economic success that President Obama has had is because he followed Mitt Romney’s advice.”
It's interesting that this fantasy-land that Romney's creating—he would've killed Osama bin Laden and saved Detroit—weirdly looks a whole lot like the Obama presidency, doesn't it?
