President Obama – A Record of Success?

Today, during President Obama’s remarks concerning his takeover of the auto industry he sought to reassure workers directly affected by his actions. In particular, he reminded the audience that

“I got my start fighting for working families in the shadows of a shuttered steel plant”

Yes he  did, but what were the results of those efforts? Has anyone in the news media tracked down those families and asked if the President’s efforts were successful?

My guess is that the “dog that didn’t bark” theory applies. If President Obama had any meaningful affect on the lives of those families in the shadows, they would have been paraded relentlessly across our televisions at every campaign event.
