Ford and the US Government…..

Has anyone heard the one where Ford puts together an Advertising campaign, that basically says:

“I wasn’t going to buy another car that was bailed out by the government. I was going to buy from a manufacturer that’s standing on their own: win, lose, or draw. That’s what America is about is taking the chance to succeed and understanding when you fail that you gotta’ pick yourself up and go back to work!!”

 The Ad stars Chris McDaniel.

Here are links, on BigGovernment and the Blaze, to articles that have the link to the Ad.

If you viewed the links, you would also notice that Ford is apparently pulling the Ad campaign, NOT because of any pressure from the Obama administration (because it would not look good to get beat by the ONLY successful Auto company in the country), but because:

“(W)e were not coerced into pulling the ad down. The campaign continues to run. We took the ad out of rotation after 4 weeks which is consistent with the typical lifecycle for the campaign.”

Got that??  It is NOT because the government pressured them!!!

Then, while perusing the internet for information I come across this article on Zerohedge, where I find this little statistic:

“Ford gets another $163 million.”

In the month of August!!!  From the Government!!!  And now, they pull the Ad??  Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm……….

And, in case you were wondering………..the Ad was GREAT!!!  It IS American!!!  Now, it looks as if Ford is selling out…………and for about 1/3 of Solyndra……….I mean, couldn’t they have held out for more????
