Ford pulls bailout commercial — political pressure?

    Maybe Ford had second thoughts

    It’s highly unlikely that Ford pulled this spot because it had run “its course.” Other ads in the campaign have been running for weeks, so why would this one ad be finished after only a week on the air? More likely, the Detroit newspaper was  correct in reporting pressure from the Obozo White House…that is, after all, the way Obozo operates.

    This is Chicago style through and through. Politics and thuggery combined. The UAW also, in all likelihood, had a hand in it. The Obozo administration, in the midst of its collapsing  numbers, hardly needs an American automaker out there telling the truth.

    By the way liberals, we don’t need some phoney, baloney comparison of Obozo to Ronald Reagan. Yes, Reagan’s negatives were as low as Obozo’s but Reagan had the economy going in the right direction. You want to compare something, compare Obozo’s handling of the economy with Reagan’s.

    FORD, former acronym for fix or repair daily, has improved in recent times to a point I’ve returned to purchasing their product.  That said, if the Obamanation told ’em to return to their otherwise, I sa…Yugo to hell Mr Bury US Soandso!  Argh!  Through the bum bum out!

    If Ford caved to this White House team then that is worse than them taking bailout money. Much worse.

    I wish that they had kept it going and stood their ground.  Don’t let the government tell you what to do.  It is not THEIR company.
