American Tax Dollars at Work

And here I was I thought the Obama Administration was proud that they intervened.  TheTruthAboutCars on the White House pressure on Ford to pull ads

This situation highlights perfectly why bailouts are so un-American. I don’t care who you are or how you felt about the bailout in the first place: at the point that the President is pressuring competitors to government-owned companies to yank truth-telling ads, you’ve got to wonder what happened to this country.

I won't buy a GM or Chrysler car because of the bailout but Ford isn't exactly lilly white on this issue. They may not have been bailed out but they do certainly us a lot of government backed loans. I'd imagine the white house said "No more loans with that commercial airing." and that is why Ford caved.
