    Ford could get a lot of "mileage" out of this commercial.

    How would you like to work hard for a company that's trying to do the right things to recover from tough times and then learn that the U.S. government is funneling mountains of cash to your competitors? Actually having your own government blatantly working against you as you are doing the right things in the American tradition. That's what the Ford Motor Company and its employees had to deal with. Imagine -- this actually happened. Here, in the United States of America.

    Ford did pay back 1.8 billion this week, but not to the communists in DC. They borrowed the money from private investors.

    It's all about the government picking winners and losers, deciding who will succeed and who will fail based on cronyism and other underhanded factors having nothing to do with merit or good business practice. Sickening to anyone with a shred of appreciation for American history and what this country stands for. It would actually be criminal if not for the fact that the perpretrators happen to be those who make the laws.

    Yes, Ford got the loans before the banks stopped lending, GM did not need to borrow until after the banks stopped lending and had to deal with the gov.!!! If you look at the list of the GM dealers that had to close down, 95% were reg. Rep. voters. This is what I've heard from fellow shooters who were auto dealers (some local, some not). No way to back it up. Just some food for thought. break-em all Jeff

    btw, that's a professional actor who was paid to do the commercial who just also happens to be a "real ford owner." give me a break. it's totally fake, contrived, scripted

    The news networks are reporting that the commercial was non scripted.

    I did the sound for the "Have You Driven A Ford Lately?" tv campaign a few years ago and everyone who got to drive a new Ford product was a real person who drove another makers product. Broadcast advertising rules state that if you use an actor to play the part of a real person in commercials you have to say so on the screen.

    Gibson is the finest guitar maker maybe in the world. They use special wood found only in south american countries and highly skilled workers.
    In 2009 obama had Gibson raided, they removed only the special,very expensive, wood used by them. When Gibson went to court which didnt take place until 2010, the Feds said blah blah,the court found no bearing, was no reason to raid and remove wood,court ordered all wood returned. Never happened, they again went to court to get their wood were told cant be found.
    Were raided again last year,same story,gibson using illegal wood and illegal workers, judge found no illegal wood or workers, still today nothing returned, obama said, you replace workers with men from such and such a country we give back wood, Gibson refused Fed judge says he has no power to make Fed govt give back the wood.
