Another bailout opponent is Mitt Romney, front-runner in the race for the Republican nomination, who told The Detroit News in September that the bailout was wrong. "They needed to move into a managed bankruptcy process rather than getting money up front by President Bush or President Obama," Romney said then. "They wasted a lot of money."
Bush told the auto dealers that said he believed in the free market. "But sometimes circumstances get in the way of philosophy," he said. "I would make the same decision again."
