    I heard the guy in the commercial interviewed by Hannity today on his radio show.


    I left scratching my head.

    First he tells a sob story about how he lost his home in 2008, his wife lost her job, he had nothing... how he had to downgrade, how he learned about not living on credit....

    Then he talks about how he just purchased the new Ford 150 (2011). So, Sean finally gets around to asking him how he went from homeless to having a new car, and the guy stammers and says its a lease, only around 250/month...

    I'm scratching my head. Then he throws out that his wife never drives, so having a lease it great...which made me scratch my head some more.


    I just thought the interview was interesting because it was unexpected.

    The guy in the commercial was just going in to do a survey about how he liked the new car. It wasn't to make a commercial. He didn't know at the time. They called him back several months later to tell him they were going to use it in an ad.

    They dropped the ad because the White house told them to?

    The govt Buys a lot of Fords.
    As Fords biggest single customer, Ford should listen to them. Simple capitalism.

    Obama is pretty touchy, and this overly sensitive man is our President?

    Yikes.
