Posted on 09/27/2011 8:47:10 PM PDT by Baynative
Remember that clever little Ford ad that showed an actual buyer being led into a surprise news conference and answering impromptu questions? You know, the one where the buyer says, I wasnt going to buy another car that was bailed out by the government. I was going to buy from a manufacturer thats standing on their own: win, lose, or draw. Thats 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.

"Well, the last time you saw it may have been the last time you saw it. What do I mean? According to a report from The Detroit News, the ad has now been pulled by Ford due to pressure from the Obama administration".
What kind of pressure?
Why would they capitulate when they are correct?
Well, I guess it is toyota from here on out for me /s
Welcome to Fascist Amerika.
Hannity interviewed the guy on his radio show today 9/27
I've never owned a Ford in my life and was looking at them for my next purchase. Not so keen after this. If they had stood their ground they would have been TRUE AMERICAN PATRIOTS in my opinion.
Government Motors or bust!
The problem is that Ford took a large amount of loans form the US Fed government too...
Ford took a huge amount of money (Between $8.5 to 10.5B) from the Federal Government... they just paid it back with interest. But it was likely Ford was insolvent if they didn’t get short term liquidity from the government at that time, as there were no private buyers participating in the auto loans paper market at that time.
Let's see. Dig dirt on private lives of CEOs and publicize it? Kill their kitties and slash their tires? Tax audits galore?

My better half has always disliked FORDs, but gained a new appreciation for them when they rejected gov’t control.
When the trash we’re driving now dies, I think we would have considered FORD replacements, but, FORD appears “pussified” by Little Stevie Dunham...we’ll probably get horses in case the fraud in the Red House invites an EMP attack, which I’m anticipating.
Idiots giving news legs to ad that ran last month.
Wouldn’t want any union problems...
We’ll never know we’re in a dictatorship until well into it.
That’s gotta be why they caved.
Saw their new version of the ad tonight. All the same except no mention of reason they chose a Ford over Government motors. That didn’t take long.
Chicago style politics. With an Alinsky twist.
This is a dangerously corrupt and anti-Constitutional administration and the GOP leadership should be telling the American people how damn collectivist they actually are and how they are eliminating our freedom more each day. The progressive establishment GOP by their inaction have already defined their purpose...
Ford should release any documentation about the coercion and make it part of a new ad campaign, they would sell more Fords that it might help fix the economy.
Why do you say that? Who are the idiots?
