What can a President buy with $1.3 Billion in taxpayer money?
Answer. A $14 million dollar Super Bowl ad, for openers.
Here’s how Fox News Blog describes the Chrysler ad, which aired during the Super Bowl on Sunday: ”The ad featured Clinton Eastwood mimicking President Obama’s reelection campaign theme – the actor saying it seems like Americans have ‘lost their heart and ‘feel division, discord and blame’ …then dismissing the last three years Eastwood says ‘all that matters is what’s ahead….how we act as one…come together’ and ‘win.’ The ad echoed themes the White House has been hammering recently, “winning the future,” “we can’t wait,” “some things we can only do together.”
No, Eastwood wasn’t wearing a “Re-Elect Obama” button. He might as well have been.
Now, let’s play follow the money. As CNN reported in July, the government made $12.5 Billion in loans to Chrysler. The car company paid back $11.2 Billion of the loans.
The other $1.3 Billion of your money? Oh, Chrysler doesn’t have to pay that back. The Obama Administration will happily let Chrysler keep that money. The $1.3 Billion is — in esssence — a gift.
Wow! Isn’t President Obama generous with your money!
So Chrysler gets to keep $1.3 Billion of your money. And all they have to do is air a $14 Million ad praising Obama. Now THAT’S what I call a good investment.
Actually, that’s what I call a dirty, stinking kickback. And if we had anything like an independant media in this country, that’s what they’d call it. Unfortunately, what we have is a giant Obama propoganda department.
And speaking of Chrysler, they still haven’t got their hand out of the government till. Chrysler last year respectfully requested another $3.5 Billion in low-interest, taxpayer-funded ”renewable energy” loans from the Obama administration. Yep, those are the same “loans” that brought you the Chevy Volt, and bankrupt solar panel manufacturer Solyndra.
