    Treasury Ups Auto Bailout Loss Estimate

    ...anyone else think that Mitt Romney is going to make the President regret arguing in the SOTU that this is "the kind of success story we need more of"?

    Probably not much in the swing states that depend on those companies the most. Maybe it will infuriate some people in red states.
