Neil Cavuto blasts President Obama for attacking GM truck owners like Scott Brown:
Neil Cavuto blasted Barack Obama for attacking Scott Brown and his GMC truck today in his “Common Sense” segment.
OK, so two things.
One: President Obama doesn’t flip over Scott Brown.
That I knew.
Two: He doesn’t flip over Scott Brown’s truck.
That I didn’t know.
You’d think that the auto “rescuer in chief” would be careful not to bad-mouth any truck.
Especially an American truck.
Especially a General Motors truck.
Especially an American-rescued General Motors truck.
Especially a 2005 GMC Canyon truck — that’s a pretty hardcore American truck — made by a company with problems to its core American truck-maker GM.
Brown’s fair game; his truck isn’t.
And for this president with an incredible tin ear, this very line of attack tells you all you need to know about a leader who can’t even distinguish between the two.
I frankly think it’s his arugula thing all over again. Remember that one during the campaign?
He’s talking to a bunch of union folks about the soaring price of everything, says he feels their pain at what’s been happening at the grocery store. And just when I think he’s going to start bemoaning paying more cash for corn flakes, he goes on about forking over more green for arugula — off the charts.
And I’m thinking to myself: “Self, this guy’s off his rocker.”
Never mind I’ve since come to discover that arugula is an important veggie staple. It stapled an image in my mind: This guy’s mind is somewhere else.
Arugula matters. GM trucks do not.
Bad form, big guy.
It doesn’t prove Scott’s out of touch. It only confirmed… you are.
Later last night Scott Brown responded to the president’s attack.
FOX News reported:
Brown took that opportunity to slam the president on government spending..
“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.”
