And so Mark Wiberg obliges:
So, bringing in the city of Detroit as some city on the ‘comeback’ after being knocked down, and blah blah blah, was a bit disingenuous as it fails to mention they knocked themselves out. Detroit and the American car industry would not have made it to ‘half-time’ if it wasn’t for the Bail-Out ™. They were carried by the taxpayer to half-time, beaten and bruised by building inferior products, bloated management and union mismanagement and over-the-rainbow promises to it’s retiring workforce. People will debate for years whether the bail-outs work, and I’m no expert. The point of this post is that having cool music and the coolest American film icon in a commercial about American ‘can do’ is a bad idea when you bring a failure of a company like GM/Chrysler/Chevrolet.
He’s got more and it’s worth your time.
H/T to Lex Communis who adds:
Jeepers…”half-time”…as in four years out of eight?
Do you think that’s what the not-so-hidden subtext was?
Gleischaltung worked for the Nazis; it’s bound to work for Team Obama!
Shouldn’t the GOP get equal time?
