FLASHBACK: Obama Touts Success of Now-Recalled Chevy Cobalt in Ohio (Video)

Back in September 2009, in Lordstown, Ohio, Barack Obama touted the success of “Cash for Clunkers” and the Chevy Cobalt.
Via the Campaign Spot:

“That program was good for automakers, consumers, and our environment,” Obama said of the Cash for Clunkers programs, “and the Chevy Cobalt that you build here was one of GM’s most sought-after cars under that program. Dealers across the country started running out of it and needed you to build more.”

Here’s the video:

Today all Chevy Cobalts from 2005 to 2010 are being recalled due to defective ignition switches.
At least 13 deaths have been blamed on the defective part.
