Scott Brown Plows Into Obama For Truck Obsession

January 18, 2010

Um, breaker, breaker, what's your handle, good buddy? Incompetent-in-chief. Were you planning to dart behind your Styrofoam columns to keep from being run-over for some of the dumbest remarks ever heard in stumping for someone?

Better question, perhaps – did Obama look and sound like someone who wanted to drive Coakley across the finish line? He sounded more like he was driving across a bridge in the fog. Are the numbers so bad, they've already given up, just phoning it in, concentrating on post-car wreck spin?

Even better question, when's the last time you think Obama ever actually popped the hood on a car, let alone a truck? My guess would be never.

“Now, you better check under the hood …. So, look, forget the ads. Everybody can run slick ads. Forget the truck. (Laughter.) Everybody can buy a truck. (Laughter.)”

Brown responds. Time to put the hammer down on these mutts in Massachusetts.

“Mr. President, unfortunately in this economy, not everybody can buy a truck,” Brown said in a statement. “My goal is to change that by cutting spending, lowering taxes and letting people keep more of their own money.”

Out of touch and out of gas, must be nice being a Democrat today. Plenty of them are going to be left hitching rides back to their states and districts come Fall.

    this sound bite will make GREAT ads this year: just repeat the phrase, with backgrounds on unemployment, underemployment, and sound bites from average citizens who can’t buy a truck, or who got their’s repo’d when they lost their j*b or declared BK…..
    Barney Fife will rue the day his dumb ass ever uttered those words, cause he’s gonna have to eat them, time and again, as will all the other donkeys running this fall.

    President Bush Is There Nothing He Cant Do?

    Get a load of the lede in this Hotline article on the rally for Martha Coakley campaign today:
    As audience members streamed out of Pres. Obamas rally on behalf of AG Martha Coakley (D) here tonight, the consensus was that the fault…

  4. Martin L. Shoemaker says:

    “Obama agreed. ‘I’d be careful before I got into that truck,’ he said.”
    Would that someone had offered similar advice to Mary Jo Kopechne…

  5. crosspatch says:

    What’s black and white and red all over?
    The Obama administration.

  6. Sarah says:

    Only out of touch lefties would think anyone can buy a truck.

  7. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX says:

    Someone mentioned the other day that anyone who has 200,000 miles on a truck and it’s still running cares an AWFUL LOT about details….

  8. leilani says:

    What’ really ironic about POTUS’ strange fixation with Scott Brown’s truck in that speech (he kept going back to it & ended up ridiculing it at least 5 separate times) is that Scott Brown drives a GMC Canyon.
    As in GM.
    As in Government Motors.
    Led by CEO..(((drum roll)))….Barack Obama.
    From ObamaCare to poor Marcia Chokely, this dude has got to be The. Worst. Salesman. Ever.

    Dan, per ” So, look, forget the ads. Everybody can run slick ads.”
    That was a major, major gaffe by Obama. As he slammed himself there. A purposely little-noticed award but highly important to the Ad World went to Obama. See – From The Guardian:
    “The campaign that drove Barack Obama to victory in the US presidential election has claimed two top awards at the Cannes Lions International Advertising Awards.
    “The campaign, submitted by Obama for America, has been hailed as a masterful combination of new media, door-to-door and community grass roots campaigning with a clever tactical use of traditional TV advertising.
    “The campaign won two grands prix in the Titanium and Integrated Lions categories.
    “To win the Titanium grand prix, a campaign must involve a breakthrough idea that is “provocative, challenges assumptions and points to a new direction”.
    “Titanium celebrates work that causes the industry to stop in its tracks and reconsider the way forward,” according to the rules set out by the Cannes organisers.
    “The integrated prize is awarded to a campaign using three or more media – such as TV, press and the internet – that is “high standard and state-of-the-art”.
    Earlier in the week, Obama’s campaign manager, David Plouffe, gave a seminar about how the different facets of media were used to deliver the campaign.
    “The US presidential campaign also featured in the awards in the Film Lion category.
    “Charles Stone III, the creator of Budweiser’s famous “Wassup” TV ads from 2000, was given the unique award of a special jury commendation.
    “Stone produced a 2008 version, through Los Angeles-based Believe Media, to galvanise support for Obama’s presidential bid.
    “The ad features the formerly happy-go-lucky characters in dire circumstances, such as being posted to Iraq and the stock market crash, since we last saw them in 2000.
    “Under the rules of entry the ad is not eligible for consideration for an official award as only work that has been commissioned by a commercial client can be judged. However, the jury felt that the work could not go unheralded at Cannes.
    “It was an extraordinary piece of work, as a standalone political statement it is perhaps second to none,” said Bil Bungay, judge and co-founder of UK ad agency Beattie McGuinness Bungay. “It completely captures eight years under president Bush. But we have rules that every work has to be commissioned [by a client] but we felt it was so significant it needed special mention”.

    “Now, you better check under the hood …. So, look, forget the ads. Everybody can run slick ads. Forget the truck. (Laughter.) Everybody can buy a truck. (Laughter.)”
    EVERYBODY? Nice Freudian slip so he could include himself.

  12. Syd says:

    The joke is on all of you who think that Scott Brown is going to give you something different than George W Bush. The guy is just another Republican
    disguised as an independent. A male Sarah Palin.

  13. Ima Republican says:

    The people have spoken in a state where 80% still have their own health care! They realized that the “new” health care bill would cost them more!
    PEOPLE…how can this administration pass a health care bill when there are
    15% of this nation out of work…how can people that have nothing, pay for
    health care with money they don’t have and aren’t making? And is the administration going to jail the people that can’t afford to pay? And what about the states that don’t have to pay taxes on this “new” health care bill…the states that have been “bought” by this administration for their vote…isn’t this illegal…to BUY VOTES??? I hope all the Dems in Washington are sweating if they are up for re-election in 2010! And in 2012!
