Skip to comments.Chicago on the Potomac: White House reportedly takes Ford to woodshed over anti-bailout ad
Posted on 09/27/2011 10:58:33 AM PDT by Nachum
Your Chicago Way read of the day comes from the Detroit News, where columnist Daniel Howes brings news that a few calls from the White House have led to Ford Motor Company yanking ads that spotlighted its refusal to take government auto bailout money.
The ad is no longer on the companys YouTube page.
Nice car company ya got there, fellas. Would be a shame if anything happened to it (h/t Is This Blog On, Cold Fury):
For the only Detroit automaker that didnt take the money of the federal auto bailouts, Ford Motor Co. keeps paying a price for its comparative success and self-reliant turnaround.

The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Don't report me, bro.
Don't report me, bro.
Once a Chicago thug, always a Chicago thug.
Alright. Who reported Ford to Attackwatch?
Ford buyer explaining he liked Ford NOT taking bailout and therefore would never buy from them...
My sentiments exactly...
Former Chevy owner
Ford should tell them to stick it where the sun don’t shine!
The only logical thing to do.
Makes me want to buy a Ford.
This is the twitter site that shows the responses to ATTACKWATCH....
Fascist Swine. I decided when the government took over those two companies that I’d NEVER buy one of their cars, and so far I have no reason to change my mind.
Taking the bailout money is like taking the Kool-Aid!
Doesn’t this sound like something out of “Atlas Shrugged”?
Dear White House,
FYI I will buy Ford autos for the rest of my life.
Should we send a note to AttackWatch informing on ourselves that we enjoyed those commercials and are buying Ford?
Put it this way, Chrysler is no longer an American company, its own by the Italian Fiat.
I bought a Toyota. Would have bought a Ford, but three letters stopped me...UAW.
Ford's ad was a "smear."
I'm buying a truck soon and was going back and forth between the Tundra and F150 (GM can kiss my ass).
That ad from Ford made my mind up for me. That and the fact that the '50 is a DAMN good truck.
When the Gov’t controls everything, everything is political.
