Ford and the US Government…..

September 27, 2011

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????

It is all Bush’s Fault

March 30, 2010

For those who say that President Obama was “given” a mess, or problems, by the previous administration, please read the open letter to President Obama below.

Dear Mr. President,

I have finally had enough of your excuse that the “previous administration” left you with all of these problems.

First, and I will only go back about 35 years, do you think that Nixon did not leave any problems??  How about Carter (lol)?  Reagan??  Bush I??  How about Clinton (LMAO)? 

Ok,ok, that was a rhetorical question.  Second, you KNEW what the problems were BEFORE you CHOSE to run for the office of President of the United States.  You ran a great campaign against a lackluster opponent, and received enough votes (no thanks to organizations like ACORN, SEIU, the MSM, etc.) to secure victory and become President.  If you did not KNOW, then you should immediately resign, because you are too ignorant to occupy the position of President.  As I see the situation, you CHOSE to be President of the United States, and accepted the situation of the country at the time.  If you do not like the job now, feel free to resign.  There are other people in the United States that will accept the responsibility and attempt to do the best job that they can.

Your excuse, that it was the previous administrations fault, is whining.  It may be true or it may not.  But now, it is YOUR responsibility (GASP).  Even though I know you have never accepted any responsibility (Such as, I didn’t know Rev. Wright held those views, or voting present your entire career in the Senate, or never holding a real world (dependent on profits) job, etc.)

Here are your choices:

     1.  Do the job that you are responsible for, that YOU wanted, or

     2.  Resign!

Good luck with your decision.  Stop whining!

Sincerely,

Concerned Citizen

P.S.  Thanks for your great decision to leave us with Joe “The (Gaffe) Man” Biden, he should do a great job (ROTFLMAO).
