Lee Iacocca apuesta por Romney

Informa el Detroit Free-Press:

Former Chrysler Corp. chairman and CEO Lee Iacocca is once again endorsing a presidential nominee – and once again, it’s the challenger he’s picking.
Iacocca put out a statement Thursday endorsing Republican Mitt Romney, saying the former investment fund head and Massachusetts governor has “dozens of years of experience in the public and private sectors” and a plan that “will enable a stronger America.”
(...) There was no immediate word that Iacocca would be stumping for Romney in Michigan or elsewhere.

In his endorsement message, Iacocca complained that “America is in deep trouble,” facing high debts and still suffering “anemic” economic growth. He said “hope and speeches won’t get our people back to work.”
Históricamente, a Iacocca se le ha vinculado más al Partido Demócrata aunque ha apoyado a candidatos de ambos partidos. En 2000 apoyó a Bush y en 2004 apoyó a Kerry.

No es una sorpresa conociendo los antecedentes familiares de Romney en la industria del automóvil de Detroit.

Iacocca fue uno de los hombres más populares de América en los 70 y 80. Hablé de él hace un par de meses.
