Obama touts U.S. auto industry at Washington Auto Show.

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: U.S. President Barack Obama toured the Washington Auto Show Tuesday, checking out some of the newest technology in American cars, before promoting his effort to bail-out the U.S. auto industry. After getting behind the wheel of shiny new American cars at a Washington Auto Show, President Barack Obama took a veiled swipe at his most likely White House opponent Mitt Romney for having opposed the 2009 auto bailout. "The U.S. auto industry is back," Obama told reporters who watched the Democrat take the driver's seat in nine vehicles, including fuel efficient and electric models, muscle cars, SUVs and trucks made by General Motors and Chrysler. "It's good to remember the fact that there were some folks who were willing to let this industry die. Because of folks coming together we are now in a place where we can compete with any car company in the world," he said. GM regained its title as the world's top-selling automaker in 2011, less than three years after the bailout that many Republicans, including Romney, decried as wasteful.
