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 "rescue 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.
