Biden tells Ford chairman at Auto Show: ‘Thanks for saving our a$$’
Canada Free Press ^ | 1/17/14 | Dan Calabrese

**SNIP**

But a lot of people are having fun trying to decipher if there was something meaningful to be discerned here. Visiting the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Biden said to Ford Motor Company Chairman William Clay Ford Jr., “Thanks for saving our #.”

What?

Now you might think it would be an auto executive saying to Biden, “Thanks for saving our #,” although Ford didn’t take the bailout money GM and Chrysler took (although Ford has accepted plenty of federal support in other forms, such as loans for green technology development).

Biden really is a potty mouth, isn’t he? He doesn’t even swear artfully or creatively or skillfully, he just cusses like a high-school sophomore.

I’d like to know if there is something about Ford I don’t know. I have sworn off Government Motors. I’ve bought 3 cars since the bail out and none are from bail out takers. I’d like to know if I need to cut Ford from the list.

Look GM is now back off government support.

Ford is strong, but Chrysler is now no longer American, as of last week (I believe).

Buy American.

Not sure about any inside information regarding Ford, but they were one of the only ones I know of that refused the bailout.

One of my NCOs met him at Fort Lewis where Biden was to speak at a memorial for some KIA Soldiers. My NCO’s one and only impression of the Vice President of the United States: “He was a complete idiot.”

The key thing to know about Ford is Alan Mulally.

Buy Ford.

Even though GM is supposedly off the Government teat, I refuse to go back.From what I understand, the loans or whatever they were called were never paid back in full and GM stole tons from the bond holders. Obama and the Dems gave lots of GM to the union, so screw them. I’m NEVER buying a GM product even if it is 50% cheaper than another product.

what’d we take, 10,000,000,000 in the shorts on GM?

And at the rate they are going (backwards) they will be begging for more soon.

IF I was buying new, it’d be a Ford.

But I figured out years ago buying other peoples 200,000+ mile cars for peanuts and driving them till something expensive broke is far more cost effective.

Stunning brilliance from the man who secretly pulls the strings of the New World Order.

Sure, he make look and act like an...well, himself, but that's just a cunningly devious act designed to throw off all suspicions, giving him complete authority and control without any oversight what so ever! Sheer genius!!

"Biden?" "The ultimate criminal mind hellbent on world domination?!?"
"No effing way!" you and almost everyone would say and that reaction, my friends, is testimony to his absolute brilliance.

Remember Pinky and The Brain? Think of obama as Pinky and then you know the secret identity of good ol' slow Joe, the man who's been there with his hands in everything from the very beginning. See? He's The Brain!

In my line of work, I can’t just buy something out of not wanting to support a company. I have to buy it to work, and it has to work. Ford’s one tons diesels are nowhere near on par with GM or Dodge right now.

I’ve stated before and I’ll state it again, I hope Toyota makes a 1 ton diesel soon.

Right now, the only truck approaching that is the Mitsubishi Fuso FGX4.

I understand. I wish a Ford had a cummings in it as well.

I keep clinging to my pre-bail out 05 express. clicked off 313K last time out.

I have not heard anything good or bad about the new power stroke that is 100% ford.

It’s good if you have a good diesel mechanic.
