Built Ford tough

On yesterday’s show Rush highlighted an ad from Ford’s Drive One series (video below) in which buyers are thrust before cameras to explain why they picked Ford. The ad features Chris, a buyer of the Ford F-150 pickup truck. In a mock press conference setting, Chris is asked why buying American was important to him.

Chris responds: “I wasn’t going to buy another car that was bailed out by our 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. Ford is that company for me.”

Rush’s attention was drawn to the ad by Paul Bedard, who had posted a brief note on the ad at USNews. Ed Morrissey has more here, including a video of Chris elaborating on his comments in the ad.

That leaves one loose end, but Rush has taken care of it. He has reported Chris to AttackWatch.
