There’s going to be a battle about everything as Obama exits and Trump enters. The White House better brace itself for a stormy night and and old school fist fight in the courtyard.
When Obama says one thing, then other people say differently. Obama claims to have saved Ford, perhaps as part of his auto bailout, but the Ford CEO just trashed Barry like it was nothing.
Obama claims that Ford increased the number of employees by about 28,000, quite a staggering number to take credit for. Think about it, that’s a LOT of jobs for one company. I couldn’t imagine being the human resource director in charge of these folks.

Also, if the cars aren’t any good, then they won’t get sold. There’s a million variants to this scaffolding economic industry and everything needs to fall in place to create a prosperous nation for our hard working American citizens.
Now Look at this latest piece from MSNBC that contradicts the Ford CEO’s statement:
